I have heard similar comments before but can't verify it. I have worked with Brits in the past. They are really professional and have great sense of humor in the field.

There are very few Brown Besses left. There are fewer allowed to own her. Yet every time I pick one up I can tell the old dame pretty much by feel.

This is for anyone, I guess. I want to understand what's necessary to create a fun and motivational program in preparedness for religious communities. The program is directed to adults. This isn't a wilderness/adventure concept. I want to develop useful resources that motivate members of synagogues, churches, etc., to create "target-hardened" communities. Thoughts?

Welcome to the forum Arie. I'm not sure this is what you have in mind specifically but perhaps the LDS/Mormon church has answers for you. I don't know if you can call them target hardened but definitely prep hardened.
