I was presented with this issue yesterday in class after the testing was done, we found that one of the questions ( How to dispose of ammunition ) was not covered in the NRA Presentation or class book guide.

However it is covered in the Student Basic Pistol Shooting Guide, is there a presentation that matches the NRA Handout Guide so they can follow ?
or any suggestions that will help to get out all the information in the Guide, I would really hate to teach from it only

How about just adding a new slide into your Power Point presentation to cover it.

I just mention it while covering the ammo storage slide... I mention dud cans at the ranges as a way to dispose of bad ammo, and laugh at what kind of hazmat response there would be to a buried ammo find. They remember that!

I always mention Dud cans, contacting the ammo manufacturer, or contacting your local PD for their suggestions if you shoot on a non-club range and/or if you dont reload. I have not added anything to my powerpoint presentations. I just explain it verbally.

They should have given you a gift card in exchange. ;-)

I always make a point to mention this during the ammunition portion, I also mention the dud buckets and when we get to the range portion, I point out the bucket during the range orientation.

I mention the dud box and also suggest that a container filled with a penetrating oil would be another good means of rendering the duds "dead". I always laugh at the lack of a suggestion on the part of the NRA on the issue.
