So on Sunday morning I went to the range with my 7 year old daughter for our last shoot in 2018. It was cool and foggy; but just enough visibility to shoot our targets at 50 metres. No chance of seeing the impact's though
But we had a good day! Alexandra shot 3 targets (5 on each). Improving on each and calling a flyer on the 2nd target; which impressed me. On inspection the shot was high as she had expected.
Then she wanted to try the "gongs". Hit 15 out of 15 on the 25 metre range, then 5 out of 5 on the 50 metre range gongs.

I did record a video of her shooting the gongs. When watching it after; I was pleased to see how steady she is before each shot. She struggles a bit to work the bolt (the rifle is too big for her); but then just becomes motionless when on target and letting off the shot. With a pleasing "plink" of the gong falling after each shot.


It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

She's coming along famously!
Can you find a spare stock & shorten it for her temporarily?

My friend in Blighty (Frank) had us get him a Pink expandable stock for his daughter.(They are made of unobtainium in Blighty)
Its quite short, but as she grows, it expands. Frank says it works like a dream!
