He is in air cadets and apparently has many cadet friends that would love to do this, ranging in age from 15 to 18. I suggested the cadet squadron rent out a club for a day, but apparently there are too many parents on the committee who who are against guns in any way shape or form.
Thanks for all the info!
I kind of have a beef with cadets just letting you know. It's a good program and all but for some reason it attracts a lot of people who are tools and just plain assholes to everyone else. I'm going to admit I was in it and I had a great time however one of the downsides was people constantly being assholes to me and my friends. There is a time and a place for that kind of attitude like emergency situations when you have to take control however it was constant berating and just being a total douche about shit like how we're supposed to be "responsible" and need to act our age/rank/level or how "we're 'young adults'" yet they feel the need to hold our hands everywhere we go). Sorry but that's the way I feel about that stuff (and about the CPU update I don't feel anything for it, it's probably a good thing IMO from what I'm hearing from my brothers).
Now that I've ground that axe.... maybe it's best to get in contact with a local club and do this in a safe and controlled environment (if the club allows this). Filling in your profile might help us in directing you to a local club otherwise at the top of the information bar there is a "community" drop down menu that you can look at the major clubs in the region who have their own local forums.
