Congrats on a great rifle and to you for starting out your daughter on shooting and to her for taking on shooting a gun like a 338LM, albeit a soft kicker from Kirby. You should be very proud of her! Way To Go!

I already told Rick it's a humbling experience being jealous of a little girl, but what is even worse is being out shot by one. Pride.... Crushed!
She can and will put most of us to shame!
Behind every good shooter is an even better spotter. Good job dad!
Courage is just fear that has said it's prayers.

The people trying to say the 2nd Amendment is outdated are probably the same folks that would say the same thing about the Bible.

Congratulations! Time spent in productive activities with loved ones is never ill spent. I am sure you are rightfully proud of your children. Keep up the good work and keep providing the top equipment (such as a fine rifle from APS) and they will go far. God Bless

No adoptions are available at this time. With her competitive shooting and a younger brother about to get started, it is about to break me buying guns, bullets and coaching. I wouldn't have it any other way! I love watching my kids shoot!
Is that your back yard your shooting in ?
How does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul?

Re: Daughter's new 338 Lapua (from Kirby)

It was a pleasure and true honor to build this rifle for her. I hope she shoots several barrels out of that rifle!!!

As far as being out shot by a girl, never had a problem with that, when I got my wife into shooting, it was clear that if I did not pay attention she would out shoot me!!! I was not bothered at all, in fact I felt more pride then I ever expected. Which was the same when she shot her first big game animal and when she shot a bigger pronghorn they I had ever shot and then when she took the biggest Montana whitetail in the family.......

Can not wait to do the same with my little girl. She is just starting now but she shoots her 17 HMR pretty well already.

Lucky young lady! There are many grown men that could not afford a rig like that. Way to go dad spending the time and money developing your kids!
