    Default How to find an Instructor ?

    I'm fairly new to shooting. I have a friend who wants to try shooting, but I'm definitely not comfortable instructing anyone else as I feel I still need an instructor.
    How do you find an instructor ? I feel like I'm out here on my own floundering and then to have someone say they want me to take them shooting. eeks.

    How much do you offer to pay an instructor if they don't tell you how much they'd like ?

    Why does it have to be so difficult to find what you need in Warren County. *sigh*

    I think the NRA courses are a good start because it's an established curriculum and standards and the cost is affordable.

    Once you go through that, there are many other options for training beyond that, either going to an established facility somewhere or finding reputable instructors.

    (Tried to post the info here for anyone else who might be interested, but my tablet is being uncooperative......It is at Pine Grove Sportsmans Association, Russell, PA, Saturday, Sept 17th. Noon-3pm)

    Bueno!

    I do have to say it has a craptastic website that does not show your class on its calendar and can't get a decent google map to work on it's official website name.

    Here's a map.

    Thanks for trying to find info markshere2.

    I'm not surprised about the website. Around here, hardly anyone seems to keep up their websites. It's sad and frustrating.

    And google seems to be a bit off alot around here ... I figure I'm just gonna have to leave plenty of time to get there and circle the area a few times.
