Thread: Honest opinions

    Honest opinions

    Hello All,

    My youngest Daughter has always shown an interest in shooting and all that goes with it and although she is only 11 she seems to have her head screwed on.

    She has shot my air rifle on occasion but only for a bit of fun but the other day my dad decided to have a BBQ and wanted a inter-family air rifle shoot. His team were Dad, my Brother, Sister in law and thier two boys Thomas and Ben. Our team were My wife the 3 children, Hannah, Matt and Kimberley and myself. Pleased to say that we flattened them but the real supprise was my youngest daughter Kimberly who put in the following group.


    Attachment 18095


    The tape is in mm. and this is 10mt resting, and I think it is a good group. She has always had an interest but if this is anything to go by seems a natural. I am seriously thinking of buying her a rifle for targets. What do you think? Is this average or not?


    I know what I think but would like some other honest views. Lastly this is not all she did or has done , but an example of her shooting.


    Thanks in advance

    I think the assessor might guess that my little girl is not called Luke.

    Good idea - you can get a magnetic jobby (ping the outer 4 down, then hit the middle one to reset) for about 20 quid or so.

    Brilliant, the youth of today should always be encouraged, in a positive way though.
