After fortifying ourselves with a suitably surgary and greasy breakfast at the local pancake house,
Belle and I took the 6 year old granddaughter to the range yesterday to shoot the .22 LR saddle gun.
Notice the stylish pink over ear hearing protection.
The guys to our left and right were shooting some pretty big boomsticks and the noise bothered Scooter. So, she only shot 6 or 7 rounds. She missed most, but got two in the red at 25 yards.
Not bad for a 6 year old shooting at an actual target for the first time.
I did Scooter the courtesy of a pic before I obscured her shooty goodness.
To introduce Scooter to the concept of iron sights, I drew a picture, primary school size, of the front sight on piece of paper, and the rear sight on another. I cut the notch out of the rear site picture and overlaid the two images while I described to her how to line up on the target. Maybe it helped. I don't really know. It turned out to be a really short range day.
