5 Tips for Firearms Teaching from Kris “Tanto” Paronto

If you want to improve your teaching of firearms and tactics, there are five simple things you can do that will go a long way with your students. These have worked for me throughout my years of teaching civilians, so I know they can help you too.

  1. Don’t be a tough guy.
  2. Run some of the drills with the students.
  3. Be clear in your instructions. And, be open to questions.
  4. At the beginning of class, check out the gear everyone brought. (You and the students can learn a lot from this.)
  5. You have to genuinely care about your firearms students.

Watch the video below to find out why these tips are so important and to get details on how to implement them in your firearms classes. I also include a couple bonus tips at the end. But first, grab a pen and paper, because you’ll want to take notes as part of your firearms instructor training.
