Well, for those wondering about the quality of training they can expect from the NRA Carry Guard program, the featured picture is of James Jarrett, their Director of Curriculum, presenting a pistol.
Note the distorted posture, the sloppy weak hand, the shitty grip, and in particular the finger on the trigger.
For a purported former US Army Green Beret and LAPD cop, he manages to look like he’s never presented a pistol from the holster before.
Way to go, NRA. It’s not like you don’t already have 10,000 instructors who can actually properly present a handgun.
This, by the way, is an image provided BY the NRA itself. Presumably they think it demonstrates quality.
UPDATE: Rob Pincus provided a link to an article about Mr. Jarrett which notes this:
Jarrett is a Vietnam veteran, an NRA member and a combat shootist with a partial claw for a right hand.
Torn in a grenade accident, the hand was rebuilt with bone from a rib and tissue from his backside. Jarrett says he gave surgeons a pistol as a mold so his grip and trigger finger would be saved.”
