My little girl made me proud today at the range. She’s 15 and has had her own bolt action .22 Savage since she was 10 yo, she shoots my .40 every time we go shooting. Since I’ve started building my new long distance plan in the .308 Remington 700 5R Mil Spec she has been reluctant to shoot it.
I asked her recently what she wanted her next weapon to be and she said basically some version of the CAR-15. So, today we went to the local outdoor range and rented a M&P 15 which she put a hundred rounds through and she really thinks we need one but she wanted to shoot the .308
After getting over the anxiety of it she settled in and began to do just fine. She shot two ten round mags. She’ll be a little sore but she is still grinning.
What I love is she is telling me where in the bull she is hitting Makes dad proud!
BTW, I’m getting a suppressor for the 5R before we get the Carbine.
