11 yr old girl PERFECT 250!



Log in to see fewer ads
Well, my 11 year old daughter put it together this weekend and earned her 250 patch on the 25M AQT.

We haven't shot an Appleseed event in awhile, have been busy with High Power Rifle, and Shannon is doing 10 Meter Precision Air Rifle, and 3 Position Smallbore.

Planets aligned this weekend as the range she has air and Smallbore practice at was hosting an Appleseed event.

Yesterday, before her air rifle practice she cleaned the Redcoat and shot a few squares targets. Then departed for Air rifle practice. When she returned the group was in the AQT grind, and she cleaned it on her first attempt. The day prior she shot 1 AQT and that was a 249, one point dropped in standing.

I'm very proud of her, this is not hocus pocus or smoke and mirrors, it's simply FUNDAMENTAL marksmanship.

She was pretty proud of herself yesterday, rightly so!

No sling used for standing.

Rifle, 10/22 with Volquartsen lightweight THM barrel, KIDD 2 stage trigger, Nikon Prostaff 3x9 rimfire scope.

Ammo: Eley Force (we shot that to burn it out, it's not the best choice, but it was sufficient).

Little BRAT!!! She should be in school!!

Just kidding, of course. What I am is jealous! At this stage of life, I can barely hold a steady aim from the bench, much less standing. And no way without a sling.

Congratulations to her for this great achievement, and give yourself a pat on the back, too, for providing solid fundamentals.
