Update: How is the effort going?

We needed 450 total with at least 100 coming from at least three states. We did not meet that threshold.

1624 downloads from the Megaupload site as of 1557 hrs EST 20 Jan 08. (Not counting pdf downloads from the various places it is posted but there's around 250 of them.)

The hard part will be getting 100 per in at least three states.

180 Petitions received.
Three states closest to 100:
1st:
California - 27
2nd:
New York - 14
3rd: (Tie)
Pennsylvania - 10
Texas - 10

Scuttlebutt going around that the NRA has quietly passed the word to its certified instructors to avoid this effort at the risk of their certifications. The rumor has it that you have been directly told such by the NRA.

Any truth there? have you heard anything similar?

First I've heard. That is news to me. If there's more I'd like to hear it.
