Taught my Daughter to shoot today
Never thought this day would happen. My Daughter is 8 1/2 years old and scared of most everything.
Just two weeks ago, I came back from shooting and she said she wanted to go some time. Guess a girl in her 2nd grade class goes with her father.
She has off school for spring break this week and thursday is shooting day. Got home from work this morning, loaded up the jeep then we headed to walmart. Picked her up some pink shooting glasses and some ear protection.
Got to the range, set the target.stand up about 10 feet away, then went to the bench and taught her about the 4 safety rules which she followed really well. We were the only ones in that range so that was nice. 50 yard pistol range.
Just to get her used to something, I had her start out with a little CO2 BB pistol. She did really well with it so we moved on to the .22lr, the exact same .22lr that my Uncle taught me how to shoot with when I was 10 years old, now I'm 37. 1961 Seneca Green Remington Nylon 66. Still works great. She liked shooting that better thn the BB pistol. The only problem was that the stock was too long. Told her we'd have to get her a .22 rifle that fits her.
Now I just have to wait for my other two kids to get older.
