Anyone is capable of passing the torch of the 3 WW2 skills. QK pistol is mine, gave Rick permission to pass that torch as well.So far; that’s just EBL, but I don’t know how much longer he’ll be interested in continuing to do TFP training. He's the only instructor that I know of who Brownie’s given permission to teach the skills…
Both EBL and I are 70, he may train once in a awhile for the next few years, but his involvement as a trainer, like mine, is near the end. And it would be advantageous to find someone 1/2 our age that would be able to travel to other parts of the US, not just locally in Fla. He's have to be vocal on other boards, be able to hold his own in heated discussion to advert the courses of fire.
Truth be told, the old guard is dead, the few touched by those old guard masters are long in the tooth at this point [ and not carrying the torch as it should be passed ]. I offered two students [ over the 18 years I did it ] the opportunity to become a protege' in the skills and carry the torch. It would require some time with me one on one to make that happen, never materialized
