More on Teaching

Several years ago, a good friend and shooting partner of mine passed away.  I particularly remember some of the disagreements we used to have, during conversations at the range.  As you might guess, most of our conversations concerned shooting; techniques,  and how best to teach them to new students.

Our own, uniquely different methods, fueled many heated debates.  But, we always agreed on 2 things:

  1. Know what the heck you're talking about, and

  2. Make sure your student is comfortable with what you're trying to teach him/her."

I hope you'll agree, we all need to spend more time at the range, honing skills we hope we will never be called upon to use.  While you're there, don't pass up an opportunity to help a new shooter.

If you are a regular reader, you know I regularly run articles written by LEO, Instructor, and Writer, Greg Ellifritz.  This morning, I ran into a 3½ year old article of his.  It really got to the heart of why I enjoy teaching new students.  I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

An Interesting Experience at the Shooting Range…

I posted this little anecdote to my Facebook page on Saturday night when I got home from the shooting range, not knowing that it would touch so many people.  Numerous friends asked me to post it up on my site so that it can live in perpetuity and be shared with people who aren’t into social media. Here it is.  Enjoy.

Interesting experience at the shooting range this afternoon…    

Train like your life depends on it.
