Ok I know many of you heard me speak of my friend Jett. This we weekend we went to his place to hunt. To give Mom a break we took all but one of the kids along. I have told stories of his son John making long range shots before but he is 13. This one is about his daughter, Mary Pat. Saturday morning I took John,a friend of his Charlie to one stand and Jett took Mary Pat and Joe Joe with him ( Joe Joe is 4 ). A deer came out and Mary Pat wanted to shoot but the only guns had along were to big. After the morning hunt we were talking and I told him I had my 6x47 Lapua. We took her to the range to let her try it. She couldn't sit and get to the scope so she had to stand behind the bench. My gun is zeroed at 250yds. After helping her get lined up and a few minor tips on what to look for ( the cross hairs ) she let one fly. Jett and I looked at each other, dead center. Ok any body can get lucky, shoot one more. Bang, right beside the first shot. Here are some pics of her and the target. John better keep practicing little sister is coming.
Awesome shooting! Thanks for taking the time to work with a youngster. Shooting is a great sport for kids. It teaches them to be responsible and along with many other benefits gives them something they can do and be proud of....... Just look at the pictures!
