    Unless you are a “tactics team” instructing moms. Oh and the occasional “AR assault course.” At least that’s what we get around here.

    Some places require it before being hired as a RSO. NRA is the only one I know that offers classes that places recognize.
    Never have taken any so cannot help you on that.

    Agreed in principle, as my firsthand life experience has given me copious firearms training, but for work-related liability stuff, it looks good on paper.

    Agreed, but it's the only sanctioned game in town.

    "MadDaddy, post Anyone taken an NRA class? If so, which were most beneficial to you? I'm doing an RSO class next month and look to piggyback a few more to get instructor cert.

    A long time ago my department sent me to an NRA class/training so I could become an instructor. (Former LEO instructors)

    Then to Glock classes/training to become an instructor (retired Navy seal instructors).

    Then to an FBI classes/training to become an instructor. (FBI Tactical Team instructors)

    Then to four H&K classes/training to become an instructor on pistol/shotgun/submachine guns (think MP5). Former Delta instructors)

    Of all of them the NRA was the weakest training, but looked good on paper as someone else said.

    The H&K classes/training was the most intense and educational.

    I am sure those were fun classes!

    Through my work, we participate in informal media range days. It looks good on paper to say “there will be an NRA endorses Cheif RSO on hand.” But when I’m at SHOT range day or other big events, this means diddly squat.

    I guess it depends on the certification. I needed the NRA pistol instructor certification to get to my Simunitions instructor certification and my Texas LTC Instructor certification.

    And the instructor certification shoot test is no joke.

    Flying out to WY at the end of the month and plan on bringing my EDC Glock 27. Going to grab a small lockable Pelican Case. I know pistol has to be unloaded, but I was wondering about ammo... Yay or nay on transporting loaded mags in the case, outside of the gun of course. TSA seems a little vague in their wording.

    Check your airline but I believe with almost every airline either in a box or in a container (I.E. mags, not loose in a bag) is the standard.

    • Magazines or clips containing ammunition must be securely packaged (placed in another small box or in a secure cutout in the carrying case, in order to protect the primer of the ammunition).

    According to Southwest, it sounds like I’m good to go with mags loaded, as long as I have cutouts in my case for them.

    Appreciate it!

    Got my slide back from Primary Machine, I may even be able to put some rounds through it before the end of the day.
