They must be doing some good drugs in Sykesville. They expect to find a qualified college educated firearms instructor to work for 18 bucks an hour with no benefits?

Good job for a retired cop who already has the benefits and likes to shoot a little. That job will turn into full time with benefits once the State economy turns around (when O'Malley is given the boot).

Retired, and in need of bennies or not, 18 bucks an hour is crap pay for a good firearms instructor. There are too many federal options in this area for any kind of decent firearms instructor to work for that kind of money.
