I've been doing quite a bit of shooting with my 14 year old daughter, and she's very good. She shoots my 26 and a Springfield xd9 that's unofficially hers. The other day she shot my brother in laws 23 and decided after the first round that she wants a 21. Now the 26 and the 23 isn't enough fire power for her.
I was shocked and proud at the same time. :)
Looks like I've got a good excuse to purchase another Glock now.

My girls started early, and at 18 my youngest asked me to buy her a rifle....a $3,000 Anschutz custom-made competition rifle! Argh! (she is two-time Nevada State Champion in Junior Olympic 3-Position Rifle Shooting).

Built her an M4 instead.

Then she went with me to an IDPA match once, and shot my Springfield XD-9 (Service Pistol category), and now thinks the XD is hers!

Good on ya, EKeeble, and keep 'em interested!

Cheers!

That is awesome! Way to go dad.

Check and see if you have 4H around there. She may not have to be in public school to be a part of it. Our group here has I shotgun team I know. Happy shooting!

Awesome. Have her try a G30SF first. It's a nicer size...especially for her daddy.

thanks, that's a great idea. She was in 4H while she was still in public schools, and loved every minute of it. We've been trying to make as many extra curricular activities as possible available to her.
She's even been to 4H camp and had a blast.
I can't believe we forgot 4H ! I'll get in touch with them.

Way to go ekeeble!! I know this isn't the topic but I want to give you KUDO's for home schooling. I would work 5 jobs to home school if I still had kids in school!!

Check your States Laws on Home schooling. Here in AZ the schools are required to allow Home Schoolers to try out for sports teams! Many of my Friends take full advantage of that and their kids parispate in many extra Curricular activities.

As for the Glock My Daughter shot my Glock 30 and said that is the one she wants for her Birthday. I am still trying to get my friends 36 for her to try and a G30SF for her to try. I tried to get her hooked on a G19 but she is set on the 30!
