@Jamey Salsberg @Kris Miller, @Philip Culmer - Hmmm. I see.
I guess in today's litigious society what you say makes a sort of cockamamie sense. Doesn't mean I have to like it, though.
That said, thanks for the explanations and info, Guys.
I'm not gonna hijack the thread, but it seems so sad when people allow the media to scare them (in this case, perhaps literally to death) about something that is, after all, a tool. Seems such a shame not to teach people how to use the tool intelligently, rather than just being fright-mongers. My personal opinion is that the present-day fear of firearms is what creates an overall environment of sheep in pens (gatherings of people in ":gun-free" zones) waiting to be slaughtered. 'Nuff said. If anyone wants to discuss that further, please PM or e-mail me.
Jamey, I'll look into the sims and other electronic stuff. However, I still think Vets or active-duty personnel should be allowed to claim awards based on previously-demonstrated RL skills.
