Are you good enough to take a shooting class? Probably yes.

Kathy Jackson asks the right question and gives the right answer.

I think the question I see most people ask, though, is “Why do I need to take a shooting class? I’ve been shooting all my life” or “Yes, I own a gun, but a shooting class just isn’t a priority for me” or something similar. Most people are good enough to take a beginning NRA class, and that’ll give anyone a good grounding in the safe ownership and use of a firearm.

The hard part is getting people to understand that a casual day at the range and shooting well under stressful conditions are two different things.
