When to Run Like Hell From A Firearms Training Class

by Bob Owens |  |  Published on December 21, 2016

Come Christmas morning, there are going to be a lot of new gun owners in the United States. For many it will be their first rifle, handgun, or shotgun, and they’ll (hopefully) be strongly encouraged to take a firearms safety class, and after that, some classes specific for how they’re going to use their gun. This is where things can get tricky.

Unfortunately, while there are tens of thousands of people calling themselves firearms instructors, their level of training and experience and their actual teaching ability can vary wildly. There are no barriers to entry, and literally anyone can claim to be an instructor.

So how do you separate quality instructors for those who are not that good, and those who are not that good, from the truly dangerous?

Making that determination is more of an art than a science, but there are a few clues you can use as a guide both before you sign up for the class, and indicators of when you should bail on a class that is becoming unsafe.
