This is one opinion. I am of another. When a boy oor his parents wants
my advice on what to buy and what not to buy, I give it. I let them know
early that they'll pay DEARLY for the BSA label, and that its not the same
as the "good housekeeping' seal. Some of the equipment that national
supplies is crap. And should be described as crap. To leaders, to
parents, and to boys.
