    • Not long ago, an experience shooter was just quizzed and demonstrated he/she could safety shoot for group as a prereq for entry into an instructor course. The add-on BIT ,was /is usually part of an instructor course.  In BIT, you learn how to "introduce a speaker" so be sure to take notes. Originally these courses were meant to train instructors who were volunteering to teach newcomers in low cost courses now it is more about the business of firearm training for profit. Depending on your area, NRA instructor and skills courses can be hard to come by, more expensive than in the past, and I think you also have to renew your instructor  training or run a certain number of classes.   My $0.02  
    • I'm surprised they didn't go with MT and FT.
    • I just read through the GS/USA brief.  What seems like a valid question here is whether the BSA & GSUSA had previously agreed on the usage of Scouts & Scouting by the respective organizations.   Some of the other things like asserting that the BSA only provided programs to boys seems a stretch.  The BSA has been providing co-ed programming since 1971.  Much of that time it's been to girls and boys.  When it was exploring or venturing they didn't object.  But, now that it's the Cub Scouts & Boy Scouts they do?  I'd think a jury would take that into account.
    • Loved listening to the lawyers discuss this change.  Well done and well grounded presentation.   I fear that courts are hard to predict.  Judges and jury's are individuals subject to their own ideas, values and opinions.  So these guys presented expertise and well grounded arguments, but I fear results can vary.  
    • As a veteran, I'd rather not tell people.  I don't want/need the recognition.  Its always awkward when the cashier at Lowe's thanks me for my service (they know since it gets me 10% OFF). Scouting is for these scouts who are working hard to earn Eagle.  I was never a scout, but as a scoutmaster, and a veteran, I will do anything to keep them safe, and that's about as far as I take it these days.
