looks like his main motivation may be another accredidation....I think it should be pretty clear how my ability to do most of those things can be enhanced by being a member of the NRA BoD. ...
I like Rob. He does alot of good work in regards to firearms education. Does that make him qualified for the board? Not in and of itself. Would I vote for him to be on the board? probably not but I wouldn't have a problem with his being on the board either. He would bring good things to the table, in my opinion, but there are others that have more to bring to the table.
In regards to his unorthodox training methods, to each his own. Just because you pay for a class, doesn't mean you adopt everything you learn in said class. Adopt what you can practically use and store the rest away. When I worked in the armory during my time in the corps, we had time on our hands and we would find things to keep us busy. One of the things I got pretty good at was disarming another person of their M9 pistol....you let me get within arms length of you and I would have the slide from your weapon in my hands. Will this ability ever be useful?...probably not...lol. Maybe if I was attacked by someone with a 92F. Alot of his unorthodox training methods are like this...practical in a specific set of circumstances. Rounded education is the key...not "why did you try that?" "I saw it in a training video I got in e-mail once" as you lay there on the pavement with bullet holes in you.
Just like any other voting process, if you make an informed decision, I can respect your vote even if it differs from mine. But to make a vote just because you think he new, cool and fresh is NOT valid reasoning for voting preference.
