My daughter and her old man have been vacationing again ... almost exactly a year since last stay (and range visit) ... how time flies.! Makes me feel older when I realize she is already 29!

We got out to range pretty much as a priority and had excellent weather for about 4 hours of varied shooting. Took plenty of ''equipment''! So - just a flavor of the session with a pic or three ..... doncha love it when your kids still enjoy shooting - and - still know how to do it well?! Started mine off pretty young.


The M25 proved quite popular .. recoil of course not bad with the 45acp. She tried three shots D/A but considering we were shooting on 25 yd targets, found that a tad tricky .... but switched to S/A and was well on the paper.

Here, she is shooting the Ruger 77 MkII in .223 .. lovely rifle and so comfortable to shoot too. Both she and her old man managed (single fliers excluded because simple errors) ... about sub 2" groups. Not bad really with factory (WWB) ammo.

And finally .. her old man tries out the Contender in .223 ... again, way more bang than much recoil. They both ''connected'' at 100 yds but - as with many people - found the long eye relief scope a tad tricky regarding keeping the sight picture.

The session finished .. as do most with me :) .... yeah, .22lr with Marlin60 and 22/45. Making lots of lil' holes become one big one!:D

Proud to have kids who shoot well and know the ropes .........
