Nancy,

I'm not a HCP instructor, but have been a certified firearms instructor. PM if I can help.

I have been approached and asked to consider becoming a certified instructor and teach a women's class and/or HCP classes. I am looking for advice to hell me with my decision. Any input is welcome. scn has been a big help already but I'm always open to input.

Hey Bow?

Who would be training you? Is it NRA or someother organization. Based on what little I know about you from your postings I would think that you would be good at it and a good person for women to learn from.

It is a state certified class at a local gun store. I will find out more when I sit down with them and discuss it. I do think I would enjoy it.

I think you have to be able to hit the broad side of a barn first, before being an instructor. ;\) \:D

I think you'd make a great instructor. Especially for a women's class. I don't know for sure, but I think women would appreciate a woman instructor more. You would be teaching guns from a woman's perspective, rather than a man's perspective. Good luck! \:\)

That is my main concern. I will just have to pay the high price for bullets and shoot more. \:\)

Well, to be fair, the class is probably going to be more of an introductory class. How to handle firearms, how to load it, how to shoot it. It's not designed as a marksman class. That is a whole 'nother class in itself, and not something that can be learned in just 8 hours. It takes practice. But I think you'll do just fine. \:\)

I would inquire about liability insurance in case some fool hurts somebody and decides to sue you.

Very good point!

I cant remember the organization that had the highschool trap/shotgun coaches insured, but I do remember us having a one million dollar liability policy. It could have been a Umbrella policy, but I just dont remember.

Lmbo. I do wield a mean skillet. \:\) I had doubts that I would be effective and remembered that I have made it thru training people at work who didn't want to learn. On one trip, i did have supervisor from another DC say he couldn't understand why I wasnt a supervisor. He said I had a knack for getting the employees to cooperate. I think he was nuts but I'll draw on that. \:\)
As for insurance, the place I would be teaching would cover it. The classes are 4 full days and are pretty intense from what I understand at this point.
Boy. Do I have a lot to think about!
