Within the LE/SWAT/Tactical community I run around with or associate with, it's pretty well established that NRA certifications are like welfare checks- easy to get and most people don't deserve them.

EDIT: I would not call myself a gun expert, ammo expert, or instructor...I just have hands on experience and carry a weapon 365 days out of the year. I consider myself a normal American. My friends...they hunt game...I call them the experts. I was never a game hunter. I Am sure I could do OK with my AK-47 on a hunting trip though
The only NRA instructor certifications that are actually somewhat deserving are the LE firearms instructor courses, and even then they're still not as good as those you can get from other places.
I support the NRA, but far too much credibility is associated with their name, IMO.
