Our 2013 schedule, featuring CHL and Beginner Pistol dates for all of 2013, and other class dates through April, is now online. The dates shown in the table above are only for the next 90 days. There are more dates on the full 2013 schedule.


I became a dealer for the V-Line safe product line because their products are significantly better than the low-cost "handgun box" safes sold at Walmart, Cabelas, and other big box stores. Back in July I came across this article in Forbes, showing how the cheap-o gun safes could be opened by a 3 year old. As a pre-Christmas special, V-Line offered dealers free shipping on all products in November. Anyone interested in buying any of the small V-Line safes can order it through KR Training anytime before November 30, and get the item drop-shipped direct to you with free shipping. V-Line does no direct sales, all sales have to go through dealers.

The Brazosland Pistoleros club and Gunsmoke range, in Bryan/College Station, will be hosting a Scholastic Pistol match on February 2nd. The match will use Scholastic Steel Challenge format stages. There are 3 divisions: junior (12-16), senior (17-20), and collegiate (must be a college student). Over the past year, KR Training has been supporting and coaching the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets Marksmanship Team. The team placed 2nd in the last major Scholastic Pistol match of 2012.

I would like to field a 4 person KR Training team (or two or three) at the match. There will be rimfire and centerfire divisions. We will have a pre-match practice day at the A-Zone on Saturday, January 26th where we will have the stages set up. We have a number of loaner guns suitable for the match (must be .22 rimfire or 9mm striker fired). Team members would be responsible for their own ammo and match fees. Anyone interested in this opportunity, contact me.


I will be offering 3 days of NRA instructor training January 19, 20 and 21, 2013.

Why should you become an NRA certified instructor? If you are already teaching or coaching friends and family, the courses will teach you how to do it better, and give you structured lesson plans and discounts on NRA materials. Anyone assisting Boy Scouts with any of their shooting events has to be NRA certified as well. If there's interest I will add sessions of Rifle and Shotgun instructor the last week of January, for those already certified in Pistol that want to add those ratings.

If you are teaching CHL, getting NRA certified adds to your credentials and gives you lesson plans you can use to teach pre-CHL classes to help beginners. If you are interested in assisting with KR Training courses, we require all assistants to be NRA certified.

Saturday January 19, $150. NRA Basic Instructor Training and Home Firearm Safety Instructor

Sunday January 20, $125. NRA Pistol Instructor Training. Must attend the Saturday class to attend the Sunday class.

Monday January 21, $100. NRA Personal Protection In the Home Instructor Training. Must attend Sat/Sun classes as pre-req.

Attendees can also get certified as NRA Range Safety Officers by home study following completion of the course.

Anyone planning to attend these classes has to be registered by Dec 20th so I can order materials from NRA for you.
