As an NRA Training Counselor a large base of my students are the future NRA instructors of today. If you have taken one of my instructor level classes you have almost definitely seen a fishing tackle box full of orange dummy rounds. I used to purchase individual snap caps and dummy rounds, but this kit was certainly well worth every penny. At $61.99 from Brownells this kit has come in extremely handy.

This book by Kenneth R. Murray is a must read for anyone looking to further develop their skills as an
instructor. Murray, one of the founders of Simmunitions, gives us an in-depth look at the massive
benefits to reality based training. Not only can we learn the benefits of reality based training, but we he also shows us why it is so crucial we step back and look at why we train a skill the way we do and how it will effect us in real world scenarios. I'm reading this book for my second time because there is so much that can be taken away and one of my favorite topics teaches us about training scars. We have two valuable resources which effect our training. These are our time and our money and often when we try to cut corners in either of these we create bad habits or unsafe training practices that could get us hurt or even worse killed. Understanding this caused me to change my own training and the instruction I provide to my students. Although something may appear to work well on paper, it sometimes gives us this false sense of security.
If you own a firearm for personal protection, this book is an absolute must. In The Laws of Self Defense
by Andrew Branca, he reveals the legalities of using a firearm for personal protection in all 50 states and
translates the information so that the majority of individuals can understand their legal obligations,
limitations and rights.
