    Also I will say, and I'm not disagreeing with your position, I've found that just having a "resume" is not enough.

    I've said many times there is something special about SI. I say that because I've been to many many other schools and this is where I've landed, because it's about so much more than a resume.
    I do recall. All my guys have a resume in various disciplines. Most have fought their fights alone, not as a member of anything. There are resumes and there are resumes. The message is not that you need a resume, but that personal experience in something other than gun games is essential.

    An instructor should have the "gravitas" that comes from experience, comportment and skill in instruction.

    SO true! Every once in a while someone, usually a former student, will ask me if I can instruct them on maneuvers I haven’t done myself, let alone taught, in years. I thank them but explain why I’m not the right guy for that particular subject matter and how it’s not beneficial to them or a wise use of their resources, but that I’m more than happy to point them towards another instructor who is right for the job. The opposite option of stroking your own ego with bullsh*t usually just makes a mess and stinks so bad that no one wants to be around you again. Not exactly the reputation I’m going for lol.
