Confessions of a training instructor

We have all been in class with “That Guy.” Admit it: odds are you have likely been “That Guy” at some point in your career. There are as many types of “That Guy” as there are people: the guy who shows up to class without the right equipment...


If you’re a range master or instructor of any kind, take a long look in the mirror on a regular basis. Don’t let bad habits or bad unproven ideas creep into your program. Don’t let your ego get out of check and remember your mission.

Be the best you can every day. Be the example of honor and integrity to your troops. Work every day not to be “That Guy”.
