    Does anyone know of a trainer in the Atlanta or Nashville areas who is doing NRA Instructor's training classes?

    I don't know of any in Atlanta or Nashville, but I do know those classes are offered time to time at Chatuge Gun Club in Hiawassee, GA. That's a couple of hours drive time north of Atlanta. They're an affiliate of the Georgia Sport Shotting Association.

    Cacique500,
    The Instructors course or the basic? I would also be interested in an Instructors course in Georgia.

    NRA's website had this:

    Douglasville, GA - Saturday, October 14, 2006, Tactical Concepts, $225
    Scott Vandiver, 770-377-1635. , guninstructor2@bellsouth.net
    Class types: Basic Pistol, Instructor Training

    Gallatin, TN - Friday, October 20, 2006, PO Box 8141, $600
    Greg Knox, 615 364 4359. , have-gun-will-travel@hgrfirearms.com
    Class types: Basic Pistol, Instructor Training

    There were a couple more in TN that were cheaper, and one more in GA that was under 200, but it was 3 hrs from Atlanta.

    Edit: Here's the link. You can search by state and course type: http://www.nrahq.org/education/training/find.asp

    It's Scott Vandiver - he's teaching the NRA Basic Pistol Instructor course Oct 14/15 - does other instructor training as well.

    Ah, misunderstood that you were looking for a particular instructor. Well, glad I could be of assistance anyway. :)

    Not bad... I've contacted Scott about this. :D

    Now to see if I can stretch a vegas trip to hit SLC for a Utah instructor's course...

    Thanks guys.

    The course was last weekend. Everything went well, even the "2 inch bullseye at 50 ft" that had me so nervous. :)

    As far as those others who were interested, Scott seems like a pretty dang good guy and a competent instructor. You could do MUCH worse than looking him up for your next course.

    Enjoy!
