I am a new gun owner and new Glock owner, in particular. I have had no training; this is not to say that I haven't shot guns and received some instruction in safe handling, weapon maintenance, and responsible shooting. I have learned a lot from this site and generally do well learning from books. However, I also realize that there is almost no substitute for person-to-person instruction. My questions are: 1: Should I ask around at shops, especially the one where I purchased my gun (and which I like) for trustworthy and effective instructors? 2: Given that I know little about the most effective techniques, drills, and instruction methods, how do I gauge the quality of those offering classes/courses? 3: How much does good hourly instruction for beginners typically cost (if there is such a thing as a typical cost)? Thanks in advance for any suggestions or advice. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
