    Joy of plinking

    This lockdown has really stifled my shooting in the garden, I've still not done the pellet testing I want to do as the kids are about or the neighbour's are always in their garden, my pellets don't leave my garden but I'm not going to shoot for an hour or so when they are trying to enjoy themselves. Out of the blue my daughter asked if she could do some shooting today, absolutely darling, it had clouded over a little and started to rain so the gardens were quiet. Bit of fun, paper plates and empty cans, set the rifle up on the bipod with the back end supported, obviously having a full size rifle with young kids is hard work, had her practicing head position making sure she could see the target and keep it on target. Had her hand in the right place so she was comfortable when we were ready to shoot. Then I loaded the rifle with the safety on, asking her to tell me if she was still on the target, she was needing to pull the stock down slightly to get on target, safety off and asking again if she is still on target, yes, ok shoot. We'd gone through gently squeezing the trigger, don't snatch, when I say shoot then you squeeze the trigger. Tin can on a stick, first shot centre hit, second just caught the top, spinning the can off the stick, but she and I were very chuffed. Then a few shots at the paper plate, probably about a two inch group, but I thought that was good especially when the rifle fit is very wrong, and again she needed to lift a little this time to get on target. Next up was the lad who had been behind us, went through the process again, asking if he's on target, he answered yes but wasn't, explain the cross hairs, set him up again, ask again and were getting better. He's younger and smaller, where his head was meant having to really stretch for the trigger, asking again are you on target, safety off are you still on target, yes, shoot, one in the plate. Then set him up on the can, he only had to not move the rifle, easier said than done, he pulled off the target, told me and got it back right ish, two shots, according to him, bob on! And he pretty much was, looked better than his sister's and he made sure he told her!! We were both well chuffed. Daughters can. Sons can. Less than a magazines worth of pellets, couple of empty cans and used paper plates, lots of smiling happy faces. Think I'll be looking at junior rifles 😁😁😁
