NRA Partners with Marines to “Teach the Teacher”

Marine Corps News -> MPs reach out to the NRA
Pretty cool. The NRA taught Pistol and Shotgun instructor courses, so that the Marines would be in a position to teach others (such as Iraqis).
Many Marines said the training they received was different from the stationary, known-distance courses they encounter at the rifle range.

“On the range we did practical application on cover and concealment, night shooting, and strong and off-hand shooting,” said Sgt. Rodney S. Bistham with MP Company.
Based on this it sounds like they covered part of the Practical Pistol course, which deals with cover and concealment. Any additional training is good. I hope this makes these Marines better prepared for Iraq.
