Shooting with the kiddo.
I love it when my 14 year old daughter asks to do ANYTHING with me. So when she asked to go shoot pistol, I was especially happy. After she finished her honors geometry homework, we loaded up some guns, and ran to the range in the waning sunlight.
First I had her shoot her pink Cricket single shot rifle at an old mealy apple from about 10 yards. It went 'splodey. It was fun to watch. And I thought, "Hey, it's been four and a half years since I posted my daughter shooting. Let's post another."
Then we discussed her shooting with the Browning Buckmark. Her first magazine at 5 yards was somewhat unsatisfactory. It was on the second magazine that things made an almost audible click sound, and bullets went into the target. We moved to 7 or 8 yards*.
What you can't see, sadly, is that 5 shots went well under 2" in that 5 shot string.
After a cylinder with the S&W M36, she shot the S&W M637:
We had a GREAT time. She did well. We will do this more next week.
*I originally though 7 yards, but I take at least 8 steps to the target, so maybe more; my legs are long.
