NRA Training Counselor

Since 2012 I have been a NRA Appointed Training Counselor, which means that I have fulfilled the Time, Training, and Student requirements along with the knowledge, skills and attitude to train others to be NRA Certified Instructors.

Just like I encourage my students to further their skills by more training, I too take training to increase my skills and tactics. I recently completed a course at T3, Trust the Training, here in Vardaman, MS. Efficient tactics are not just knowledge, when you put the tactics into use is when you start building usable lifesaving skills. These skills deteriorate when they are not used, Practice, Practice, Practice!

A little about our diversity at Inspired Shot, when I became an instructor I took the opportunity to travel. I regularly travel to North Carolina to train Marines and North Carolina residents to get their Pistol Permits while I visit with my parents. I have trained both my parents to be NRA Instructors and they help keep thing running smooth there call Phil Sayers 419-693-1023 for your NC needs. In the Northwest Ohio area I several teams capable of instructing Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana residents. Joe Billian is the lead instructor there 419-265-3421. And here in our newest location in Fulton you call me 419-265-2744. I am currently training Instructors here to carry on when I make my next move, right now I am thinking Florida.

If you wonder why we are spread out you are a tactical and/or critical minded thinker. Our locations are about 600 miles apart for strategic and convenience reasons. When/if things go awry I have a familiar place(s) to retreat. If you think like me and want a team of trained instructors who “have your six” call me, franchises are available. I can take you from a novice shooter to a training machine. I can help you obtain you NRA and your State credentials at a reasonable cost. Or maybe you just want to lead a team of future leaders volunteering for the local Boy Scouts or 4H, we do that too. Don @ 419-265-2744

Ohio Modifies Firearm Laws

Governor John Kasich (R) signed into law House Bill 234, comprehensive pro-gun reform legislation.

While originally a bill allowing for the use of suppressors while hunting, the Senate Civil Justice Committee added many other pro-gun provisions to HB 234. HB 234 then passed in the Ohio Senate by a 24 to 6 vote, and was concurred by the state House of Representatives by a 72 to 21 vote.

HB 234 makes a number of positive changes to Ohio's firearm laws. HB 234, as signed into law:

Improves the concealed handgun license process by (1) reducing the number of training hours required from 12 to 8 hours, (2) eliminating minimum length-of-residency requirements, (3) allowing non-residents who work in Ohio to apply for a CHL in the county or adjacent county in which they work, and (4) makes special provisions for members of the military who have been honorably discharged or retired, extending their competency certification from six years to ten years after honorable discharge or retirement.

Expands concealed carry reciprocity to visitors and persons temporarily in Ohio who have valid out-of-state licenses, regardless of whether the license-issuing state has entered into a reciprocity agreement with Ohio.

Repeals the prohibition on Ohio citizens buying and/or selling long guns or ammunition from only the five contiguous states of Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Citizens of Ohio can now purchase and/or sell rifles and shotguns in any state as long as the firearm laws in both states are obeyed.

Includes a "shall certify" provision which requires a chief law enforcement officer (CLEO) to sign off on an application to transfer an item regulated by the National Firearms Act, once the application procedure and requirements are met. This provision eliminates personal bias towards NFA-related items, requiring CLEOs to sign off and process the application in the same way they do a concealed handgun license.

Allows for the use of firearm sound suppressors while hunting in the Buckeye State.

Brings Ohio's definition of "automatic firearm" in line with the federal definition, limiting it to only firearms designed or adapted to fire a succession of cartridges with a single function of the trigger.
