She was shooting at 50 yards, from a bench, using a Marlin 81TS with a Rifle Basix trigger and a 3x9 Tasco scope. Ammo is Remington high velocity long rifle with the "golden bullet", 34 shots fired. She wrote her name on the target after she shot it and the box is covering it to protect her identity.

She started shooting last year after she turned 10 and I'm impressed with how well she is doing.

Looks good! Nice to see a kid enjoying something that doesn't involve electronics. Good on you for teaching her.

Bravo!
Proud and proper moments grow into a well rounded citizen and asset to us all. Well done.

And I too raised a granddaughter from a small toddler to adult. She hunts now with her newly wedded husband. As grandparents, we do have our experience and such to pass along as well as teaching ethics, morality, and proper thinking and behavior. I salute you on your being such a strong and solid influence upon this young lady. Again, Well done!

I had both my boys shooting from the time they were old enough to handle guns, maybe five or six. My dad did the same with us, probably even younger. Even if a kid doesn't grow up to be an enthusiast, the respect and appreciation for a potentially dangerous thing is a good thing to have and any quality family activity is always good.

Mine are grown now, and I only had sons, but after coaching a kids air rifle team for several years now, I've come to the conclusion that girls tend to become better shooters faster and more easily than boys do.

Thank you all for your kind words.

I have a Chipmunk rifle and wanted to start her shooting a long time ago, but the wife insisted not until she was 10. The Granddaughter asked me on her 10th birthday if we could start but she had outgrown the Chipmunk, so she's using full sized rifles now, which is a handicap we're trying to work around.

She's started fishing when she was 4, which was surprising since I don't fish very much and she came up with that one on her own.

Yes, I'm pretty proud of her. Oh, and the best part is she hates idle chatting on the phone.
