We have a new club here I joined and one bay is .22 only with several stands with various steel silhouettes. Different sizes of rounds, diamonds, bottles and critters of all sizes and shapes. It just a whole lot of fun I tell you what. Anyway, the kid (10 year old daughter) and I have been a couple of times. She loves popping the swinging steel with her little Anschutz bolt action 5-shot repeater (standing up on her hind legs and shooting like a woman). I have been using my dedicated .22 AR which she has no interest in shooting (I think because she is scared of it from me shooting my .223 AR around her). Anyway, last night I took my 10/22 “Liberty Training Rifle”. It is a 20” barreled 10/22 and is fitted with Tech Sights and a sweet, sweet trigger job among other enhancements. She wanted to shoot it and fell in love. Pop, ping/swing, pop, ping/swing, pop, ping/swing, etc., etc, 10 times. I love seeing her enjoy shooting, and hitting stuff, but finally made her load her own magazines. Good thing I have a bunch of .22 ammo salted back and another 10/22. Looks like I need some more Tech Sights and another trigger job, and more ammo.;)

The heck with the sights, time to get your daughter her own rifle. Let her pick it out and then chose the color/pattern. My buddy did this for his niece and she opted for a pink 22 Savage with pretty flowers. All the guys made fun of her for a girly rifle, till she outshot them.

Some examples:

WTF does "(standing up on her hind legs and shooting like a woman)." mean? Does she possess fore legs? :beer:

It means she has moved beyond shooting like a worm.

A very important step in the evolution of a rifle shooter.

Most people never master it.
