    Default special request

    so My wife just laid one on me and may need some help.. I live in Wasilla and found out there is a scout troop in need of a couple things like archery badge or something and gun safety.. Dont have all the details yet as I have to go talk to the troop leader. My issue is I really suck at trying to give lectures and things like that. I have experience in the areas but could really use the help.. This is not something I have ever really done but its for the kids so with the right kind of help I may try to help. If anyone has some experience with this and willing to help out please pm me.. It doesnt sound like a lot of time to commit either but could be quite the chance to help out some young boys..

    Would love to, still trying to figure out how to PM...
    the troop leader should have a Scout manual that covers it, if not, golden 4, Eddie Eagle, and gun proofing from CorneredCat.com

    I have done gun safety presentations to a couple of scout troops in the past. Showed different types of weapons and how to insure they were empty and safe. No live ammunitioin of course.

    I have worked with a scout group in the valley the last couple of years. We've even done some shooting but we had to get an nra certified guy there to shoot. Shoot me a pm if you need a hand.

    How many kids? Are you interested in doing a full fledged hunter safety class? I can provide the class and the range if you are interested. We can combine both the Scout badge with the hunter safety class as well as archery if we need to.

    Good on you Doug. Don't see too many folks giving back in such a manner.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed
