As Simon says, I personally don't think a qualified instructor is needed. Most new comers into th sport should be taught the basics of air gun safety, then coached by the more experienced members of the club they attend. I was at Milride the other day where a couple of guys were using springers, and one of them was not holding the barrel/cocking arm when loading..I was going to say something but I didn't know them, it wasn't my club and he was bigger than me. Me and Willbe did help 2 shooters to zero their rifles in on the plinking range, spending a good half an hour with them as they had no idea how to set a scope up and were hitting nothing.
