I hope others will join in and post their kids' targets.

So, my 15 year old girl first shot a gun at age 10. But, trips to the range were sporadic over the next five years. Started her on .22LR rifles, of course. Then more recently, I let her shoot my precision AR-15 and then the RPR 6.5-CM. Now she's hooked! The last couple of trips, I took her to the rifle range at 100 and 200 yards. Today was her 9th time ever shooting. The shooting line was at 200 yards today.

The 4-shot cluster were her first four shots on this bullseye. After the 4th shot, she paused and said, "Now I'm nervous about the 5th shot." Welcome to the club! :ROFLMAO: Sure enough, she pulled it a bit. But, still a well-sub-MOA group even with the 5th shot!

Looks like a nice facility, too!
It has everything. Rifle, handgun, trap, skeet, sporting clays, archery, fishing, indoor handgun and rimfire. And it’s 5 minutes from my house, and office.

Ooh, I'm jealous. Though, if I had such availability, I'd be more broke than I am now! ;)

I’ve made some great like minded friends at this place too.
The worst part is, I’m still less than 40, and all these guys are pushing 80. I’m going to be having to go to some funerals shortly, I’m sure, and it suck.
Enjoy every day.

2.2 got his first and second deer this weekend. 1st one right at 100m, second ran toward us and he got it on the love at about 40m, maybe 10 seconds total elapsed time if we had a shot timer. Not groups but good shooting out of a 13 yo.

My boy was 6 and daughter was 5. He is 7 now and pretty good handling. She kinda lost interest and picked it back up when she was about 10.

How old were your guys kids when you got them behind a gun? I have a 3 year old that doesn't seem anywhere near ready.
My son's first shots were at age 8. He's been a few times, but he can take it or leave it.... no real interest.

My daughter's first shots were at age 10. But, only recently (age 14 - 15) did she take a keen interest in precision rifle shooting.

I’ve got four. First and third were shooting at four, number two was 6, four was not quite four. When they are ready. You’re the parent, don’t let any fuck head tell you when they are or aren’t ready.
