    My Daughter shot in her first match over the weekend.

    She did very well, There were 28 shooters total. She placed 20th!!!
    It was so much fun having here there and shooting, she has been asking for a few months now when she gets to shoot in the match, She has come with me to a few just to watch.

    I set her up with my CZ 452 scout that I shot all last year, Cut down a stock to fit her, and away she went.

    She has been has come to a few match's with me, and also shot with me quite a bit on the side out side of the match with other guys that also shoot in the match. She has been given the nick name "Little Annie"

    The guy that runs the match asked me for some input on the medals for 2014 before he ordered them, and I asked that he make this one for my daughter.

    THAT IS OUTSTANDING!!! Great job getting your kids into any shooting sport. Her smile is worth all the money you have spent on gear and ammo.

    That is awesome. My fear of getting out shot by a small girl just became real.
