Proud of my daughter!

Post by SMBeyer on 4/4/2017, 7:50 am

Last night at league my 14yr old daughter shot a new personal best!  She crushed her previous high of 524.  I was shooting to her right so I got to score her and had to attempt to ignore her while I was shooting.  I knew she was shooting really well and the last string of rapid every time her gun went off I just kept thinking "keep em in scoring Liv", not sure I was paying a whole lot of attention to my target.  Having her shoot next to me is great distraction training!

That's fantastic! She should be proud too.

And it's an interesting course of fire... Same as ISSF standard pistol, but with NRA targets it seems (as timed/rapid scores are much higher). That seems like a great match format.

Congrats! Well done to her! Hopefully she'll stay interested in the sport for years to come and be an example to recruit more shooters in younger age groups.

It helps to have a HM coach that recently shot a 200 sf on the b2 at 50ft in the ILL-MO indoor league.  

Watch out dad.  She is coming for you.

That is some darn good shooting.  I suspect she started off learning all the right stuff and not having to correct all the bad things some of us grew with.  She will be great someday and just what our sport needs right now.  I know you must be a proud dad.  Don

A friend has loaned me a Clark .38 with a slide mount that she has shot a few times.  Personally I don't like the 9.  From what I have seen to get them to shoot well you have to load them hot and I'd just rather shoot a soft .45.

I know she is!  She says that's her goal.  I think I promised her a Pardini when she does.  Maybe I need to start saving for one!

If I have ever seen someone with natural talent it's her.  When she started at 12 people asked how long she's been shooting because she looks like she's been shooting for 10 years.  I know I'm biased because she's my daughter but she can just do it.  A couple minutes of instruction and she had stance, grip, breathing... etc. down.  Took her a little over a year to build the grip strength to shoot SV ammo reliably but now she has no problem and can function the .38 also.  I am very excited to see where this goes.

At the IL state match they shoot .22 for .22 and CF shooting an 1800.  Don't know at the Nationals.

I do believe that juniors are .22 for the whole 2700 at Perry.

I couldn't find that in the program.  They do have a High Junior award in CF and 45 aggs but I suppose they can limit them to 22 only?

Great Expert score!! I'll bet soon she will be shooting a master score!
 You might want her to try the .45 with slide mount, frame mount has a greater recoil. Adam was 10 years old shooting the .45 at Perry.
 Anyone can compete with the .22 at Perry not only the Juniors. It first started with the Made in America (I think) that was only for juniors. But later it was changed to allow anyone to shoot .22 in all the matches. They simply were squaded as everyone else but use only the .22 on the CF and 45 days.

Tell her GREAT Job. Maybe next year she can make it up to Streator and compete in the IL State Junior Olympic Championship with a chance to qualify for an invitation to go to Colorado Springs and compete in the Junior Olympic Championship at the Olympic Training Center.
