I was leaving the Hospital after an extended shift when a young lady -a 4th year medical student that had scrubbed in for some surgeries- approached me and asked what I was doing this weekend. I said "Nothing special. Why?" She then asked if I would take her out to shoot prairiedogs! I said I would if the weather held, but I would need to get her to the range and have her get situated with the rifle she would be using.
We went to the range an hour later and she settled in behind the Winchester .222 quite easily. It turns out her Dad is a shooter and reloader and she was well versed in all the basics. We migrated to handgun after a while and then retired to the local bar to warm up. The temps are going to hit 60F today so we will be going out as planned.
I was reloading some .222 for her this morning and was reflecting on how nice it was to see a pretty young lady -and a soon to be doctor, no less- with a real passion for shooting. It gives me hope for yet another generation of potential shooters.~Muir
