Honors Seminar Meets CPL Training

Kelsey Croak is a student in my Honors Seminar, American Gun Policy: Arming and Informing the Debate. 

The 17 students in the class, when they learned I had recently undertaking the NRA certification training to teach the Basic Pistol and Personal Protection in the Home courses required of Concealed Pistol License applicants in the states of Ohio and Michigan, asked me to teach them the course.  So I did as part of the class.  They, being who they were, honors students, learned the safety and marksmanship materials very well indeed.

On the range, away from the university, Kelsey is the best shooter in the class as judged by group sizes fired at 7 and 25 yards with .22, .38 and .45 caliber handguns.   The other two top shooters in the class were also women, Lindsey Foster and Melanie Peterson.    Although the men were no slouches. 

The above two photographs are of Justin Yeary, also a student in my Honors Seminar, and who also successfully completed the safety and firearms training.  Justin is showing off his new tattoo, far different than the sorts one generally sees on the non-honors students.  

The tattoo is a mathematical function used in complex analysis for the purpose of finding integrals.  

I love teaching honors students and find that I learn at least as much from them as they do from me. 

A great class and a great seminar!
