We are going to take my 9 year old step-daughter to my cousin's farm to shoot tomorrow for the first time. I'm hoping her mother hasn't brainwashed her against guns too much so that she'll enjoy herself.....

That's awesome. Starting her with the .22 I assume.

Definitely. We'll let her try a few of the .22s and take it from there. I think she could totally handle the .410 shotgun but we'll see.....

The cardboard wasn't carrying a gun and shooting back either.

Default Target shooting.

I am not dismissing the shooting ability or accuracy of Sitting still and target shooting from a rest in a safe environment is good to do.

The target isn't carrying a gun and shooting back, hiding behind a tree or an object firing back at you, it isn't moving toward you at a fast pace of 3 or more at one time or it doesn't have protective gear on so you only have a few seconds to make a kill shot in a small area.

How good do you shoot while in a combat tactic with targets popping up or moving side to side or back and forth while you are moving towards and away from them and sometimes with two or three at one time.

What's that got to do with a range trip? How many battle scenarios have you been in with a 10/22?

That's why paintballing is so much fun.
