Don't worry the Boy Scouts of America still offers rifle and shotgun merit badges and they still have the same requirements that they did ~30 years ago when I got them. When I got them the range instructor was an old salty marine so we all learned how shoot like the marines do. I managed to make it into the dime club and to demonstrate proficiency to the instructor for the badge you had to be able to get 5 shots in a group that was quarter sized. There was a lot of emphasis on safe handling, when to shoot and not, cleaning, maintenance, and shooting proficiency. Both the rifle and shotgun merit badges were more comprehensive than the standard firearm safety, or even the Minnesota carry permit trainings that I have also done. They are an excellent program.
