Default off to the range

i took my oldest daughter to the local range last night. it has become a monday night thing for us since its my only day off and i am home early enough to get out there before it closes. here is her target after about 300 rounds at roughly 20 yards with iron sights.

she was shooting both the cz and the ruger. she has more fun with the ruger because of the semi auto, but that cz is spot on.

Not bad shooting. I can't wait for my boys to get old enough for days at the range

She did good !!! How old is she ninja?

I wish my son, who has been shooting he was 6, would take more interest in shooting for targets. He's getting better about it now that he's 16, but he's more into shooting the AK-47 and spraying bullets, or blowing shit into a million pieces with the shotgun.

she will be 11 next week. she started shooting when she was 8 with an old henry lever action at my sister and brother in laws house. i think once we get her scope dialed in she will be happier. her biggest complaint is that she cant see the target very well. so what can you do? its your little girl, you spoil her........

what do you guys think about the bushnell banner series scopes? i was taking my buddies advice on them since he knows more about them. something decent but not overly expensive

This is the scope I put on my 10/22. It's not great but for a cheap scope I have no complaints. Supposedly pretty good for the money on a rimfire gun

Simmons 22 Mag Rimfire Rifle Scope 3-9x 32mm Adjustable Objective

If she's asking for a scope, and concerned about accuracy, I'd say that's a good thing. To keep her involved and interested, I think a scope would be a good investment.

As far as a $65 Scope, I don't want to seem like a cheap bastard, but I got like a $30-$35 scope on my 10/22, and me and my son both can pop a squirrels eyeball out at 50 yards or the B on a Budweiser can. At 100 yards we can still hit the can, maybe not the B, but we can hit it every time. I just don't see the need to spend big money on a .22 scope since they don't have a strong recoil to knock them out of the adjustment. I'm fairly certain it's a Cheap Walmart Simmons scope I bought many years ago. I don't see it now, look like it went up $10 to like $35 or $39 but I got my son one of the $26 Barska Scopes with .97 cent delivery to the house from Wally World, and I"m pretty impressed with it so far. We have not dialed it in to 100 yards yet since we haven't had .22 ammo when we went shooting, but i have a feeling it's a good scope too. Just so long as it's something with a 1in tube and not one of those BB, Air Soft .22 scopes, it should work good on a .22. Reason I go with 1in scope tube, is I use See Thru Scope Rings on the .22's. Either Weaver or Leupolds. Set the Irons for 50yards, and the Scope for 100 yards is the norm for us and it works well.
