    Trustworthy

    helpfull
    friendly
    courteous
    kind

    clean and reverent
    3.Scout motto: Be prepared!

    Thanks for that! I am a new scoutmaster after being out of the program for a while. I am looking forward to sharing things I enjoyed as boy with my boys now!

    BSA = British Small Arms, I think, before all those iconic 50-60's motorcycles. We've all seen their recent scopes and red dots, now made in China. Anyone here ever see an actual BSA weapon? Was the slide release on the right side with a large puddle of gun oil dripping on the floor? Seriously, I bet they made cool guns.

    Birmingham Small Arms, made bikes before WW2 through the early 70's. I have seen a couple of firearms made by them; a muzzle loader at a gun show and a Class 3 Lewis gun, from WW1, that a former co-worker owns. My BSA is a 650 Lightning.

    I have a BSA bolt action 22 - tube feed magazine under barrel. Threaded barrel from factory I believe. It always works - only issue I ever ran into was with some Russian steel case 22 - it went bang but after a dozen or so shots it would fail to extract and I'd have to pry the case out but that was because of the waxy coating on that ruski ammo.

    The Boy Scouts are a great organization.

    My sons would be members, but they meet on Wednesday nights in our town. That means we have to choose between Boy Scouts and Church. Church wins every time. I must say that, based on their oath, I was surprised that we had to make this choice. Oh well.
