couldn't wipe the smile off my face for hours





and her 9yo brother is no slouch either

Is she already outshooting you?

(Somewhat serious question because if you're ever taken a woman shooting for her first time they all seem to shoot uncannily well)

It’s good to start them off right…..nice job.

Just wait until they become teenagers and they purloin your favorite handguns…
Hahaha.

Get ready to build each of them an AR. My daughter took her AR to College.

Be well
Bob

thank you - indeed new shooters can surprise you, especially the women

it takes a lot of time, practice, and patience with kids but certainly paying of now

and interestingly enough, about 75% of my collection is intended for them already

Women tend to listen to their instructors.

They don't come to class as know it all's because of what they've seen on TV or in the movies.

My wife took not a little money from a buddy at our hunting lease in Texas. She was using a Winchester pump in .410 shooting clay pigeons.

Nice work. All kids deserve to be taught the basics. Even if they choose not to shoot regularly, the safety and shooting knowledge may be massively important later in life.
