Apologies for low activity; it's been a busy couple of days. I know some folks still have drabbles outstanding -- I'll try to finish that off tomorrow.

Today was busy, but productive. I am now a certified range safety officer, or will be when the NRA processes my paperwork. It's the first step for me in getting a bunch of instructor qualifications. I'd like to be able to teach people, at least on a basic level; I've taken people shooting for the first time before, of course, but it'd be nice to be able to give them a certificate at the end.

In other news, I found STAND BY ME in a cheap DVD bin. Now *there's* a great movie. Best film Reiner's ever made, and it's just a wonderful flick. Great adaptation of Stephen King's novella, wonderfully shot and acted. "Mickey's a mouse, Donald's a Duck, Pluto's a dog. What's Goofy?" "He's a dog, man." "No, he's not. He wears clothes and drives a car. Pluto doesn't do that." "Damn, that is weird. What the hell *is* Goofy?"

Goofy is a goof.

Congrats. You know you could have gone right to instructor school without becoming a RSO first though, right? If you do that you can then take the RSO as a home study course.

You can do the Refuse to be a Victim instructor course as a home study course as well, as soon as you have your basic instructor cert.

Yeah, I know, but the RSO was the only course being offered around here for now, and I needed it to be able to take guests to my new range, which is small and fairly restrictive.

Oh, dude, NRA classes may be more boring than any academia I have yet been exposed to. Congrats on being able to sit through it without passing into a coma.
