    There's that frelling pink Barbie AR15 again. I guess it's okay in her hands.

    But, no eye protection, ear protection and bare-foot. I know that she's not really shooting, but...

    Other than that, I like it.

    She's _practicing_ controlling the gun, not firing. And, yes, I will re-make it.

    Visibility of the image will be intermittent while my site is moving to another server (problems with the hardware in the original)

    Oleg, if you need to host some images during your move, let me know. I've got space and bandwidth.

    Hmm, another picture of the cute little redheaded girl with an AR...

    Watch out, Charlie Brown!

    not to nitpick, but dont we always preach how if we are going to 'practice' (assuming you mean dryfire) to do it in a room that has no loaded mags or live ammo whatsoever?

    Good point. I will re-make the image as soon as Mike brings his pride of lion cubs over.

    What is the world coming to that a man would feel the need to give his daughter a rifle like that?

    He should give her something much more appropriate for her age: an AR with iron sights. Once she's got the fundamentals down then he can put a red dot on the rifle. :)

    When my daughter is old enough, I hope she will want one with pink stocks on it. :D She's 10 mos now. What a long wait.:eek: But I want one with either pink or purple now! :neener:

    Since the photo was taken, her father turned down the barrel to improve the balance and added BUIS to the rifle. She started with a iron-sighted bolt .22, now has that and the AR.

    Have you tried something with a less flat lighting technique? A little direction from a large softbox -I use chimeras-- with a bit of fill will add some drama to your photography. I'm not talking so much ratio as to become chiarascuro, but just enough to keep it from being so catalog-like.

    I use less flat light on products sometimes, might use it on people next. It was a matter of speed that day.

    She hits a sheet of typing paper at 100m, so I guess she cants the rifle less when on a real range. Good kid, very respectful of other people's boundaries.

    She's fine with iron sights. The AR is still on the useable but large size for her. And the lighter barrel makes it easier to control but recoil more. She only fired a few shots before defaulting back to .22.

    But she outshot two of the adults with our group. We had two lanes of the range, and once she was set up I pretty much left her alone to shoot. Her safety and control is good, and her form is not bad at all, as you can see.

    I think the main problem in the studio was exactly that--a studio with no range around it to give her something to focus on.

    And this was just silly, but someone's going to freak when they see it:

    Oh, you can see Pinky in the bottom edge of that first pic, along with the 1928 Stevens 311 .410 I restored for her but she isn't big enough to shoot yet. It arrived here with desoldered barrels. It now shoots offhand 6" slug groups at 50 yards, slightly high and right. I'll need to put a bead on. It doesn't have one.

    With the stock retracted, no less.:)

    Yup. Useless. But impressive.

    My five year old son is on my lap, looking at the pictures,(LOVE that bayonet!), and he wants a 22 single shot - had no interest in the AR...hmmm.
