What had started as a simple question by a person asking about BB guns
looks like turned into a two sided sword. Bob, what exactly do you put
in soup? Lets all try and keep on the topic, and I realize not everyone
wants to deal with the subject of firearms and have personal feelings
about this type of issues. The NRA / BSA Instructors are trained to run
safe, controlled gun ranges and the instructors typically give safety
course to the scouts before they can shoot.
Lets try and keep the comments positive and supportive for the people
seeking advise and help. This is my $0.02 worth.
