    Ok, she has been serious about shooting for years. Gun is 6.5x 47 lapua, she has been shooting guns since she was 16 months, she does wear eye protection (she removed them for the pictures) and I force her to do nothing. If she asks and I don't think it will make her shy away, I will let her run with it. She did shoot all the ammo in the box in front of her. We do not tie the gun down or do anthing to stop the massive recoil of the 123 gr bullets from a 18.5# gun with a brake. She did manage to connect with a target at 200ish and we are stoked! JFI, she just turned 4 (yep, 49 months)! She killed her first coyote right before holloween and her second one on Christmas morning (she was still 3 at that time).

    Anyways, we are way proud and thanks for letting me rant about it.

    Here is the video in case no one thought she was shooting it.

    I've got to say that's a cute picture of your daughter. That needs to go on your wall.
    The times you spend shooting and spending time with her now will be a great investment for later. Good Dad.

    Great job dad, you will have a hunting , shooting buddy for years to come.
    Made the mistake of not teaching my daughters to shoot when they were small.
    I regret it now!!:rolleyes:

    That is priceless!!! I have had my kids ( daughter 5 and son 2) dry firing in the back yard a few times. They have shot a .22lr before and the red rider a few times. I need to get them out shooting again. Thanks for sharing!
