No you can go hunting with no NRA instructors, at least for now. :) In a lot of ways hunting seems to be a more dangerous activity than shooting on a range.

When and if I am ever asked to officiate at an ad-hoc range, I will bring the question of liability insurance to the local council before I agree to do it.


That is my point exactly. Your local council is in the best position to ask the right questions to know if the activity is being done safely and in accordance with BSA policy. If the council doesn't know how to do this... That is a different bigger problem.

How do you delete an accidental double post?

BSA has liability insurance. With two NRA trained instructors running the range, I would rate range shooting rifles about the safest activities we do.

This is why you follow the rules and not try to get around them. To keep the BSA Safety record.

As a designated moderator, when I see one, I will just go ahead and delete it, using a small X icon that appears in the lower right corner of each post..

I don't know if you can see that icon or not. It may appear for your posts but no one else's, or it may not appear.

The "x" does not appear on any posts for me, mine or anybody else's. Must just be for the forum moderators.

I kind of figured as much, but wasn't sure if it would appear on your own posts.
