13 y/o daughter putting rounds on steel at 1000

I just had to do one of those "proud Dad" posts.

I went out to my range today to do some load testing and took my 13 year old daughter along. She has been wanting to try one of Dad's "big guns" at 1000 yards so I gathered up some fireform loads I was shooting last week at my 1000 yard gong.

She has been shooting small bore and muzzelloaders in 4-H for a few months and has gotten pretty good with the .22. She has never shot any of my big guns though.

The first shot out of my .338 Khan was a miss (worried about recoil I think), but then she settled down and put 2 in a row on steel. (the rest of the hits were from last week)

Now she can't wait to see the boys in her 4-H club and brag about being a 1000 yard shooter.

    My boy is 8 and is going to shoot in 4H. I let him shoot one of my guns when he was 7...he loved it. Of course it was a 308 with a break. I didn't want to pick him up off the ground.
    Thanks for the incentive, before long, don't be surprised if she wants one built for herself and the inevitable happens. She shoots better than dad!

    Great job!

    Great story, you should be proud!!

    Can't wait to get my little girl out this year. She won't be 3 until march but I'm thinking its time to go ahead and get her that .338 Edge I've been dreaming about!

    The 4-H Shooting Sports program is great for kids. I'm sure your son will enjoy it....... almost as much as Dad! One great thing about getting the kids involved in shooting sports is gives a great excuse to buy more guns.

    There is little doubt she will be shooting better than Dad before long. I am already having trouble maintaining my unbeatable status when we are shooting silhouettes with .22s.
