  1. Good to see hunter classes as when one shoots in residential areas, they obviously need it.
    Search and rescue should probably have actual training. When I was enlisted in the U.S. Coust Guard on SAR stations, we had training once a week. Actual hands-on training is essential in life or death situations and water rescue is completely different that land based rescues and should have different training.
