 This is of my oldest son. He is 11 and is wanting to shoot further out every time we go shooting. I was teaching him how to shoot prone with good forum. This was take while he was crawling up to the rifle, for some reason new shooters want to adjust to the rifle instead of moving the rifle to them. it was a good day he shot 40 time with his 243 and was hitting bowling pins at 3oo yards that were swinging. he also was hitting a 16x16 inch steel plate with my 300 win mag. it was a good day. now if I he can close the deal on the first deer i'll be able to get some sleep.

Mike, Have you had trouble with her not wanting to use a good cheek weld? My son wants to hold his face to high on the rifle.

 

Thats awesome.....

Not yet, Rachel seems to be doing OK. That's a .22 though and the longest shots have been around 80+ yards. I feel she's ready to move up so I'm currently looking for the "next" rifle to get her.

I think I might need to add a  cheek riser to all his rifles until his grows some. that way his line of sight will be straight and he can get the proper weld. it just seems his head is to high.

The first  hurdle for me was getting her to understand how to position her head so the black ring disappears and she has a clear image of what's she's shooting whether it's paper targets, plastic bottles, or rabbits. That took all of 5 minutes. Now it's getting her to settle down after she downs a rabbit, remembering safety, where the barrel's pointing, etc.

Mike, I see how the exitment can make one forget about the safty part but it all becomes habit before to long.
 
cc, I have a 3 yr old son who is jumping up and down wanting to go also. i'll take him and walk thru the woos on a "hunting trip" before the season is out to get him ready for it. If we stay 10 minuts thats fine aslong as he can go.

Here is my baby shooting her Remy .243.  She is calm cool and collected.  Very natural shooter.  Should have started her years ago but I wanted her to make the decision to be around guns.  She has taken to it like a fish to water.
