I took my 11 yr. old grand-daughter to her first match this morning.
She loved it!! Temps were in the low 90's and the humidity was off the chart.
I had my hands full getting her gun and my gun set up for the different distances. We shot at the same time as only 3 shooters showed up! I had to make sure she had proper and safe gun handling, as well as getting her scope (and mine) dialed in.We did an 80 rd. match. I will say that this was my worst score in a long long time, but shooting with my GD was worth it. I had a 13 and an 11. Oh well.

Her scores

MATCH #1
DIVISION-Hunter
SHOOTER CLASS-Unclassified
GUN-Marlin 15Y
AMMO-CCI SV
OPTIC- Weaver V-16
TARGETS-NRA 1/5 Steel

1st rd.

CHICKENS-1

PIGS.........3 (Good job, girl!!)

TURKEYS......1 (Dam, you got one!!)

RAMS.......1

TOTAL......6

2nd rd.

C......1

P......2

T......1

R......0


TOTAL......4



MATCH TOTAL......10


We had spent about 1/2 an hour last night getting her aquainted with this scope. She was having problems getting the scope lined up with her eye. All she was seeing was black. She kept adjusting her head until she could see the target, though it took a while. At the match she had no problem.

I didn't think that she would hit any animals, but hitting 10 of 'em!!! I could not be any prouder. Having only 1 other shooter was a blessing as I could spend as much time as I needed to get her set up for a bank of animals.

She can't wait until the next match!!

With the lack of wind, I was confident that I would finally get my 3rd "AA" score and move up in classification.

The shooting gods had other ideas.

Got it!! A case of beer and a brick of ammo. That should appease them.

Club match on the south side of town...


Club match, NRA steel, meters
Date: 7-27-19
Anschutz 1710
Leupold Vari-X III / Premier boosted scope @ ~30X
SK Rifle Match


Match #1, Standard Rifle
Class: AAA

Chickens - 8
Pigs - 6
Turkeys - 4
Rams - 6
TOTAL - 24

Not happy about giving up so many Pigs but that's the way it goes. Seem to have gotten my Chickens sorted a bit better than last match.



Match #2, Hunter Rifle
Class: AAA

Chickens - 7
Pigs - 10
Turkeys - 6

Started on Rams and ended on Turkeys. Glad to get the TIAR on Pigs to remind myself that I am capable of cleaning them.

This time next week I'll be in Pennsylvania for Nationals, my first time going to the big show. Wish me luck!
