You want to become an NRA-qualified instructor? Take an NRA Instructor course. Unless you do something incredibly stupid—“candidates must possess and demonstrate a solid background in firearm safety and shooting skills”—the chances are close to 100 percent that you will emerge with a certificate. I’ve never heard of anyone failing to get the paper. On the civilian level, that’s not that much of a big deal. For law enforcement, well, I wonder . . . And yes there is a non-white face in this NRA video. He’s cuddling with Eddie Eagle at 3:21.
