    Good job Dad!

    These times of parenting are among the absolute best of times.

    Good to see you are involved and enjoying the blessings.

    I think boobies that your research about boobies age is somewhat boobies incorrect and may need boobies recalcuboobieslation.

    ETA: My daughters caught an interest in biathlon in the last Olympics so there's a reason to target practice.

    From my experience with youth shooters, girls have natural talent because of a little higher level of maturity. I warn all the youth shooters, natural talent only takes you so far. Practice and hard work will take any shooter to the level they want to be at, no matter where they started.

    Now you guys know why the women from this forum tend to stay in the general section. It much easier to contain the mess when you get off track (thread).:oops::s0126::s0126:

    Excellent job dad, just ignore the boys.:D

    If you look close there is a 22 caliber hole in each of these lifesavers, shot at the 50 foot range! These were shot by the reigning national champion junior shooter. She is helping coach my daughter.

    This is great to hear bud! In these troubling times it's refreshing to hear of a young person using their talent positively. As a father of 3 daughters who are also shooters I know the pride you feel. Great job dad and all the best wishes for you both!

    That’s awesome! My son found interest in a BB Gun Shooting Team and I figured at age 8 that was a good start. It was amazing to see the young girls in the program outshoot the boys!

    I think it is great that parents get there kids into shooting. I have no doubt that if my wife got into shooting she could out shoot me. For some reason things just come real natural for her. :rolleyes:
