If he wants to.
As long as they have a "No child is EVER left alone with an adult" safe-kids policy, AND they actually enforce it.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Quote:Declaration of Religious Principle

The Boy Scouts of America maintains that no member can grow into the best kind of citizen without recognizing an obligation to God and, therefore, recognizes the religious element in the training of the member, but it is absolutely nonsectarian in its attitude toward that religious training. Its policy is that the home and organization or group with which a member is connected shall give definite attention to religious life. Only persons willing to subscribe to this Declaration of Religious Principle and to the Bylaws of the Boy Scouts of America shall be entitled to certificates of membership.

I'll appreciate any relevant suggestions, experiences, alternatives. I would like my son to get something similar without the religious angle.

Teach your son yourself. It's more work, but it's also more rewarding, and you will have your hands on the controls:

Does it have a compass in the stock and this thing which tells time?

No. It has rails for a scope, which he wasn't using in the pic there. He wanted to learn musketry on iron sights ... my boy has a bit of hardass in him.

It's always best to learn open sights first.

Rule #1 -- when you're squeezing the trigger -- be looking at the front sight -- NOT the target.......

(true shit, for those of you who don't shoot).

RE: Should My Son Join Boy Scouts?
I grew up alone from age 8. I learned to hunt as a matter of survival. All I have heard about the scouts is sexual predators.

Just teach your kid yourself and don't farm out responsibility to strangers.

Trust a former kid who was on the street early and had 29 broken bones.

Some of us grew up rough.

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.
