    The cow went about 30yrd. yes she's an awsome shot and I wouldn't want her shooting at me. 2 elk and deer with the same 243 one shot each.

    Good deal. I have a niece that is 5 years old and i was wondering when i should start her training. I'll spend the next year or two on the safety aspect and go from there.

    Once again congrats to your daughter!

    Safety is #1 in my book, once she learns she'll have a gift that she'll use forever and be patience with her.... I see and know some fathers that don't have any patience with their kids and its a good way to ruin something that could be fun for both of you.

    Great shooting!!
    We are slowly teaching our daughter-in-law how to shoot, she had never even seen a gun before she met my son. She now likes to shoot handguns and rifles, and does darn good for a noob.

    Tiffany is the Hunt Goddess!

    Tiffany has also served as an ambassador for shot placement against all those who believe there is some axiom that says you need a .300 Win Mag for elk.

    Tiffany has a cool Dad who has established an untouchable trust between himself and his daughter toward the taking of a life in a fashion that is powerful, skillful and ethical.

    Tiffany rocks big time!

    Oh, yeah. I almost forgot. I simply love the 243/243 caliber/yardage mesh. Throws all those to the ground who might say, "Gotta be real close with that caliber!"

    Right on! The .243 is the caliber my dad had myself and my 3 brothers hunt deer with. i really like the caliber especially for younger or smaller shooters.
