    A little while back, I was going to sell my Cetme. But my daughter wanted to try out a battle rifle. (She's 16 btw) She has a AR-15 so she's no novice. Well, we went to the range and the RO has her do some shots and checks the target. After giving her an odd look he asked if she wanted to try multiple targets. Ok with her. So she sets up and lets go on 5 targets, rapid fire. He checks the targets and shows them to me. Except for one flier all were in the center. After a few minutes, he says, "If she can shoot like that she should get a better rifle". She took possession of her very own M-1A on Saturday.

    Sounds like some nice shooting. Give her my congratulations. And Congratulations to you for training her.

    I'd echo that sentiment and add that to me it sounds like she shoots like a girl, which is a very good thing. They have a way of doing that well.

    Hmmm... I'm 16. I'm going to try and "pay for" a Saiga soon.
