NRA training - is it worth it?
There are some week long NRA training camps that I have an opportunity to attend but was curious to know if they are really worth it. It looks like they cover handgun, rifle, shotguns, and at the end you will be a Safety Officer and certified instructor for handguns, rifles, and shotguns.
I like the idea of the instructor certification (I have enjoyed working with adults teaching continuing education computer courses) but am not sure it's something I'll have time to fool with.
If my primary goal is to NOT become an instructor what practical value do those classes have for someone who's been shooting seriously for a year (recreational shooter for ten years), reloading for six months, and competing for eight months? Not saying I know everything, or even close to it, just that I am not sure I'll get much from the newb classes.
