Kim - you were right to eject the boy from the range. Now that you
suspect that he lied to you, he has to be reminded that a Scout is
Trustworthy by some more time away from the range.
We had a ham sandwich fly out of the troop bus on our trip back from
Washington, DC. I asked who did it. The boy who did it immediately fessed
up. The other boys started to laugh. I put a stop to that by saying that
"at least he was honest enough to tell me." I had the boy go out and pick
up the sandwich from the side of the road (yes, it was safe at the time,
no traffic) and I told the Troop that was the end of it because the Scout
had stepped forward to take responsibility.
Hope this helps.
