Default First time shooter vid

I took my daughter out to Steel Peak in Perris for the first time this last weekend.

Here she is shooting at my steel target from about 5 yds away. She did much better than I could have hoped for. She maintained muzzle awareness, proper grip and was even accurate scoring about 8/10 hits on target at the above range.

She seems to be taking to shooting and guns and has asked to come along on the next outing.

I think what djandj is trying to say is that is a little close for steel especially with a child. Might want to stand back further. I've been nicked a couple times from ricochets from targets 10-25 yards out

How do you get to this place? Is it legal to shoot there? By the way that's an awesome video!

That's a valid concern but, in my experience, that is more of a concern when the targets are static and not free swinging like this setup. The swinging action redirects the ricochet into the dirt. I've shot this target for years at this same range and knock on wood, have yet to be bit.

This is Steel Peak in Perris. It's BLM land and yes, legal to shoot.
