Took my oldest two crumbsnatchers to the range today for a lesson in proper "gun control"

Shooting a Remington Nylon 66 Lever Action 22 at only about 25 yards but for their first time shooting, they did GREAT!

They both tried to shoot a 9mm as well. My daughter hated it. She pulled the trigger one time and wanted nothing else to do with it. The boy enjoyed it but was too skittish to get comfortable.

They were very proud of their results.

I had a semiautomatic nylon 66 back in the 80's.

Sounds like a Nylon 76 not a 66...

Not a whole lot of those out there.

I've been teaching my 13 yo daughter to shoot this Summer using a Browning Buckmark. She's doing very well. I'm proudest of the fact that she hasn't even tried once to skirt any of the safety rules and she has obeyed very single range command I have given her immediately. She had a squib round the other day and stopped, laid the pistol down, stepped back, and waited. I'm thinking about going to a 10/22 with her next. She's tried a 9mm and hated it just like your daughter.

Cool

Mine were also VERY focused on safety.

The boy had a failure to eject once. It was because he wasn't working the lever quite fast enough. Once I showed him how to clear it and reminded him he had to be fluid on the lever, I just stepped back and he went back to work with no further issues.

Because she did so well with the fundamentals I was able to show her a few additional things. We had to leave the range twice because I was uncomfortable with the behavior of others. Used those as teaching moments with her as we waited in the lobby for those groups to leave the range so we could finish. Now if I could get her to put a little effort into cleaning the Buckmark after we finish.....:roll:
