Offer to Firearm Safety Instructors

Recommended Posts

Are you a firearm safety instructor? Really? I've got an offer for you. Here's the deal...
20 years ago, a guy I was hunting with put a bullet in my neck when he thought I was a squirrel or something. The slug nicked my spine and paralized me from the neck down. I was lucky, though, and my spinal cord wasn't severed. After 7 months in the hospital, I walked out using crutches (still use 'em.)

Anyway, about 12 years ago, I got asked to talk to some high school health classes about my experiences with a spinal cord injury. I really enjoyed it so I volunteered to a couple of firearm safety instructors I knew to talk to their classes too.

I really enjoy talking to the kids in these classes and really give them a dose of reality about how dangerous guns can be. This is my way of giving back to a sport that has given me a lot of pleasure.

I live near Rochester and speak to several firearm safety classes in the area each year. Any instructors out there like to have me come and shock the heck out of the kids? I don't get paid for this, this is on my time and dime. I'll speak anywhere around SE Minnesota. If you want me to travel farther, a little gas money is a good persuader. Think about it. If I can make them think when they're in the woods and fields, it's worth my time.

If you're interested, send me an email to

or post your address here and I'll get back to you.

Although I am not a firearms safety officer I want to thank you for offering this to the future of this sport. In my opinion they need this to know that poor handling of firearms have permanent effects. Again thank you for your kindness and caring.

    • Had to go back and see if it was you that posted this one: 😀
    • World famous. Browned pork, Italian seasoning, onions, garlic. Then hash browns with cheese.
    • Season is young yet fellas, hopefully it stays dry for a while, we ran into lots of water and crops as well. The kid dropped the only rooster we saw on Saturday , lots of hens though. The neighbor out that away saw a small brood of chicks 2 weeks ago, real late hatch but hopefully they came out ok in the rain last week.
    • Spent a week grouse hunting around Grand Rapids. Left on Saturday Oct 13 because I tired of running into Ruffed Grouse Society yahoos using Minnesota birds to bring in $$$ so they can buy more white pickups with Ruffed Grouse Society painted on the side driven by PHD's that are clueless as to why there was such a disparity between the 2017 drumming count and the actual number of birds on the ground. Saw or heard a total of 12 grouse and 7 woodcock for the week. My experience was the same as knoppers.   
    • Saw nothing yesterday. Too many crops and too much water everywhere.
    • I thought that was what it was.   Thanks for the ID.
    • yea they eat up the acorns. I have soo many acorns, the tree rats cannot put a dent in them.
    • I have always liked the blue jays also. SO much food here they all get along pretty well. 
    • parise looks very slow out there, he was terrible in OT. hopefully the wild can turn this poor play around soon.
    • OK I am now a fan of blue jays. had a woodpecker, a larger one, not the downy on my house, it pecked a few times, I pounded on the wall it flew off into the tree, as I watched it through the window, it landed on the side of the garage ready to go to business, and a blue jay flew at it and chased it off, it happened two times, then the woodpecker flew off. I also had a blue jay chase off bees, they made a paper nest on my eaves in one day, I watched a blue jay land on it, and jump around, the bees would come out, the jay would fly off. then the jay repeated this numerous times until the nest fell off, bees left.
