    I get the first stab at it.

    I'm not an instructor and I don't want to be one,but I'm betting I could learn a **** ton from proof reading that book and this class as well.

    Commas have always befuddled me.

    In regards to the comma, the rules are quite fluid. It is kind of like Range Master interpreting a rule book.

    In my experience that is a good comparison.

    Me too! I mean how can someone be unconscious for months and then just suddenly wake up. How do it work?
    Also I struggle with spelling and reading so I wouldn't be a good proof reader.
    Putting firearms' contribution back in our history makes a more complete telling. Teaching marksmanship in that context deepens the understanding. Revere's Riders, because history involved guns!

    As a student, if you tell me "do it X way" & I ask, "why is that better then Y", and you can't explain it to me, then I'll start to shut down listening to you. <<< Lots of comas in there.

    Are there instructors who teach things and do not include the why in the teaching?

    Hoo-boy! Too many people fail to grasp that "teaching" is the key part of the phrase of "teaching someone how to safely, effectively, and efficiently use a gun." While I've received a few nuggets about teaching in various instructor courses, if I had to rely on just that, I would suck as a teacher.

    I think a lot of people who try to be teachers (but fail) tended to be among those we might categorize as poor students. I think being a good student is a prerequisite for being a competent teacher, and that entails continuing to be a good student indefinitely. You have to fully understand how to learn before you can guide someone else down that path effectively, regardless of the subject matter.

    I can see the look of regret and panic in someone's eyes at the moment that they realize asking me "why?" means they're going to receive my "why" in glorious detail. It's a lot like the look people have when they did not ask me why, yet realize they're going to hear all about it anyway.
