500 people I have taught for NRA pistol classes (504 actually).
500 people who are, I hope, safer and better shooters.
At least 5 (that I know of) were liberal, anti gun people who had the guts to learn about something they had been taught to hate, and who learned that all was not as they had been told. One of them is a gun owner and a shooter.
I haven't made any money doing this(not why I do it), but I have paid it forward. And I have paid the folks (some of whom have passed) back in part for the time that they invested in me.
I hope they'd be proud that I am passing their legacy on.
