    I think I speak for everyone present when I say:

    Eek.

    Q: How'd you get everything that color, and is the white in that picture glare, or is there actually random whiteness on the purply rifle?

    Wow, that looks like a toy. The purple one does, too. :neener:
    Is that a little pink heart on the side of the magwell? Well, I guess if it's for a girl, it's alright, but maybe you should paint a crosshair over it or something. My first reaction was that it's the wussiest gun I've ever seen, but for getting a girl into shooting, I think it's a great idea.

    GunnySkox, those look like painted white and pink streaks. You know, like ghillie rags, but for the My Little Pony section of the toy store.

    Yup,purple with white and pink with pink hearts:evil:

    Cranks out 10 rounds of .22 lr just as fast as you can pull the trigger!

    I'll start my 7 yr. old daughter shooting from a bench and work her way up.

    BTW it's on a preban AR lower so she can pop a 6.5 on top of it some day if she wants.

    A 6.5 upper on a pink lower with heart motifs? I suspect Alexander Arms will have a collective heart attack at the very thought... :D

    Here's a picture of her under the tree with a very annoyed expression after I told her that Gunny Clause hadn't brought any ammo.[​IMG]

    HSO...

    How could you (or santa) do that...

    EVERYBODY knows Santa ALWAYS provides ammo when he brings a gun... ALWAYS... he KNOWS an unloaded gun is just a poorly designed paperweight... and a poorly weighted club... Santa WOULDN'T bring a firearm and not provide at least a little ammo...

    You'd better look under that tree, way at the back... i bet there's a box of .22's back there, it just fell and nobody saw it...

    Santa was probably plinking varmints over middle TN on the way to your house and ran out of rnds ...

    Nice rifle.

    Please give us reports on your student's progress.

    I've got a 5 spot that says she'll be out shooting you in 6 months. :neener:

    Speak for yourself, sir.

    Anything that gets the fairer gender behind a trigger is alright in my book. If they need to have AR's that match their fashion ensemble, so be it. At least it doesn't look like all the other dime-a-dozen poodle shooters out there. ;)

    i dont even have a accurate count of my 22lr inventory and i bet 75%of thr'ers are the same.

    I'm whole-heartedly in favor of whoever and whatever introduces the next generation of shooters to the only sport I've ever heard of that can save lives.

    After posting my message, I had ass-umed that the daughter was older. I didn't know that she was still a wee peanut! So much the better. Get her interested in it now. She might forget about it for awhile when she hits her teens, but don't give up hope.

    My grandfather gave me my first .22 when I was about that age. I still have it. When I hit my teens, I discovered girls, and stopped shooting with him on the weekends. He ended up selling all of his guns, figuring that I lost interest. When I found out, I was heartbroken. Obviously once the hormones settled down, I rediscoverd my love of shooting and collecting guns. I just wish I had my grandfaher's collection counted among my own now. I'm particularly kicking myself over the 8 gauge shotgun that he had (he had to load his own shells for it because none of the gun shops have carried ammo for it for years). Funny thing is, I think it would be considered a "destructive device" today, but I'm sure he didn't know it. I shot that monster once, just once, and my tender 14 year old shoulder ached for days.

    The point is, if she loses interest when she hits her teens, don't lose heart. Just weight for her "boy fever" to subside and then reintroduce her to the sport that brings you both together.

    Ok, ok. I've been reading all of this.

    Let me get this straight ...

    You didn't get her any ammo for it?
    What? Man ... you were batting a thousand up to that point. Lean over so I can slap the top of your head. :fire:

    She looks so cool with that rifle. I sure hope you're going to show us at least one picture of her first outing.

    Janitor, don't worry, I've been to hso's house. I'm sure Dad can find a few loose rounds of .22lr somewhere (or just walk down to the neighbor's).:p :D

    Well ... to tell the truth ... I was having some problems believing there'd be no .22lr in the neighborhood.
