Excellent post, pax. I've often been dismayed by the extent to which some folks will go to rationalize not getting training. No one can know what his problem will be, if it ever happens, so one can't know what he'll need to know or be able to do to solve it.

I'm with a group of certified instructors who put on regular Basic Handgun classes and occasional Personal Protection classes. None of us take any compensation. Our fees are calculated to just cover expenses. We do it because we enjoy it and find it very satisfying to help new shooters start out right.
