I support the NRA, but far too much credibility is associated with their name, IMO.
I agree, NRA member here but seems too easy for people to flash around a NRA instructor cert. I am by no means an instructor, all my experience is before the military and 20 years serving. Also, plenty of friends who were various operators and people from different services. I learn something new all the time. Everyone has their good and bad days at the range. Especially me since I usually bring 3 or 4 guns each time.
