Very nice video! I like the way they put that young girls piano playing in with her target shooting. Nice touch.
when will this video come out? Is it available to buy? Could a person show it at gun shows to attract people to this sport?

I'm reminded of an old gunsmith I met in Argentina.

When his kids were young, he taught them to be careful with firearms by taking them shooting. The gun quickly lost its mysticism when they saw how it worked and, more importantly, just how loud it was. As they grew older, he took them shooting, if they wanted to.

When his daughter hit 14, she finally asked to go shooting. She had shown no interest until then, so he couldn't have been happier.

After explaining the basics to her, he gave her the weapon (a .22 pistol) and she started shooting.

First shot - 10 ring
Second - 10
Third - 9
Fourth - 10

And so it went... until she emptied the magazine.

Her dad, a competitive man, but not a particularly good shot (but a whiz with fixing firearms), jokingly snatched the empty pistol from her, muttering "give me that... now, let's see you do that with this." He handed her an old Argentine 1911.

With similar results.

Seeing him recount the story, you could just feel the mix of envy and pride. She never really got into shooting, though - not her thing. He wasn't sure if he should feel bad about that, or good - at least this way, she wouldn't show him up in front of all his friends.

I never learned to shoot as a kid, and I'm a lousy shot now, but I really look forward to teaching my kids.

Nice! Especially the gal from NJ, one of our most viciously anti RKBA states, where the local police chief can deny your 'application for permit to purchase' on a whim, and where you've got to have that for even a bb gun.

Keep at it ladies...
