Fired about 15 rounds total out of my 9mm, then shot about 25 rounds out of my .22 conversion in my AR. Didn't shoot any 5.56, but not bad for her first time. I was extremely proud of her. Women are funny. She kept her target and everything. Probably make a scrapbook or something out of it. Women....lol
Nice nice nice! You know what I like? In the first pic, her finger is not wrapped around the trigger! That means you are a good instructor and she is doing it right!
