At Mad Dog Armory our instructors are NRA certified instructors meaning that they have earned the qualifications and knowledge to teach others to shoot responsibly. Not only that, but unlike some other instructors out there, NRA Certified Mad Dog Instructors have shown above and beyond experience and shooting skills with their firearm.


In order to receive this designation, your Mad Dog Armory instructor had to complete the following:


  • The instructor must demonstrate a high level of familiarity handling a firearm, shooting experience, firearm safety knowledge, and they must exhibit profound knowledge of the action type in the discipline they desire to become certified in.
  • The instructor had to have had completed a number of examinations and qualification exercises administered by the NRA training counselor.
  • A NRA training course in the discipline chosen must also have been successfully completed and passed.


Once the instructor has successfully shown that they can handle firearms with safety and confidence, and using the appropriate techniques and lesson plans, training ads, and meet all of the expectations of the NRA trainer, the person can then become an instructor.
