    So.. Who would be open to training on weapons safety, marksmanship, ect?

    My name Is Kyler, and I was a Marksmanship instructor for the United States Marine corps for over 3 years. While there I was sent to a school on how to teach, and how to develop training courses.  I have taught more people to shoot than I can possibly remember, and after a life time spent around weapons I have come to the conclusion that EVERYONE should have proper training. Even those who do not currently own a weapon and have no intention to do so. The training that can be provided over the internet is limited, but there is still a lot we can do. I have a long list of classes I would be willing to make available/teach, and while I may not be able to go out to the range with you and observe your shooting, if you have a friend record you and you take pictures of your target I can analyze it and do personal coaching with you. I don’t know how open the community would be to this idea tho, so please let me know what you think.
