Spy Game (2001) reminds Mike McCarville of this American tradition. On this edition of the McCarville Minute, the Second Amendment activist and blogger recounts a walk down memory lane that was inspired by a movie he watched starring Brad Pitt and Robert Redford. In Spy Game, Pitt plays a sniper who claims he learned to shoot from the Boy Scouts. McCarville remembers his own experiences using BB guns and .22 single shot rifles, practicing under NRA instructors who drilled the scouts on gun safety, target acquisition, breathing and all elements of "good gunmanship." The long-standing NRA firearms instruction programs are still preparing young men today.
