Re: New future long range shooter! (New born)
We decided about a year and a half ago to try and see what we could do. We are far from dissapointed!
I have a whole new appreciation and respect for my wife as she refused ANY pain drugs during the delivery so our baby could be as perfect as possible. I watched her agonize for some time while refusing anything that would hamper our babies ability to be coherent when she was born and it was her decision entirely!
They are both sleeping right now and it is much needed sleep for mom since she has less than 6 hours of sleep since Friday morning at 0400!
I already have a "hand me down" rifle for her when she is old enough. My old remmy 788 308 winnie that I took my first dall sheep with and my first moose with. This rifle already has much sentamental value to it. And if she really doesent want to get into the sport, then thats OK too. But I will do my best to show her how enjoyable and rewarding shooting sports can be.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
