Re: Merry Ho-Ho! Post up your Best present yet?

I do better with iron sights too!
My daughter had taken two years of gun safety with bb guns at summer camp.
Now at 7 she is a better shot than I am. LOL

Local friend, enthusiast, and father of two local female riders (one of which is a LocalRider) has been working on me for a while now to get the girls into a local shooting program. I took the 13yr/old last night to the first weekly meeting. She shot a .22 bolt-action target rifle for the first time. They had a tough time deciding if she was a lefty or a rightly, but decided to go with a left-handed gun for the first night. Her groupings were pretty tight, and IMHO fairly impressive for her first shots ever. She will probably shoot right-handed next week.
That would be my dad! So glad you took your daughter to this. I shot competatively for 9 years, it's such an awesome unique sport and one of the only sports where women are equal (if not better) than the men. Keep us posted on how she does!

My best x-mas gift was all the garbage I got to eat before buckling down on the diet again.

Shannon, Did you shoot at Butler County Sportsman Club?
I was an instructor there for about 10 years. 1991-200? Both of my sons shot.
And there was a Shannon that shot most of that time. Had a younger sister maybe.
And yes, girls usually pick it up quicker and are great shots. (lack of testosterone helps)

He's still quite proud of you both, but I think Carrie is his favorite. Haha!
