Tap-Rack-Bang!

Tell me this is a new skill they've added to your local Girlscouts curriculum handbook. The young girl looks like she just earned a new badge for her sash!

Ah yes, the old "give them a gun loaded with some random dummy rounds that cause it to jam so you practice the skill of clearing jams and keep shooting so you can live" routine.

There's a course offered at my range that mirrors that with the nice little addition of the instructor lighting fireworks directly behind you.

Wow, she had me rooting at her form. If she can handle that glock with those thin little arms, EVERYBODY can.

But man I was CHEERING when she was nailing those tap-racks and that first reload was just about perfect.

I'm betting she'd whup my ass at the range!

Go GIRL!

The young lady rocks.

I imagine this video would cause a firestorm of PSH if viewed by the gun grabbers.

IF i ever have a daughter, she will most definitely learn how to do this.

i can't tell you the warmfuzzies this vid gives me. :)

the failure to fires were intentional as part of the training? sure were a lot of them she handled that really well.

That is absolutely awesome. She can outshoot me, that's for sure. If I tried shooting while walking around those obstacles, I guarantee you I'd trip over my own feet and blow my cock off or something.

That is one girl who will NEVER be raped by her prom date or at a frat party. And if she ever has to walk around shady neighborhood at night, the eyes she looks around with will be those of a hawk, not a frightened rabbit.

God, I wish we lived in world in which this was dead-standard normal and universally recognized as a Good Thing, not as the deviant behavior of a bunch of redneck "gun nuts" endangering their children.

That is a girl a dad can be very proud of.

Oh, also, it appears to me that a lot of the failures are due to limp-wristing... not surprising with an eleven year old girl trying to shoot a centerfire Glock. She might be better served with a Sig Mosquito or Walther P22

Some places that video would be proof of child abuse. Fortunately, none of us have to live there.

I wondered if the misfires were due to random dummy rounds or limp wristing. I lean towards the former since the coach didn't react except to say "clear it" when it happened.

I never saw limp wristing when the military still used the 1911, though I had heard about it. It wasn't until the change to the 9mm that I began to see it on ranges. I wonder if people instinctively gripped the 1911 more tightly because they knew it was a big bad round, and relax with the Beretta because it's "only 9mm?

Anyway, that's one little girl who has earned herself a big pile of self confidence. Nobody's going to push her around.

Damn....she reloads better than I do.

That's awsome!

First my buddy's 11-year old niece beats me at cribbage, and now I see this 11 year old shooting on the move and doing a better job of clearing stoppages than I do. Hope for the future, I love it.
