10-year-old sets sights on distant targets

This was in our local paper today. Just so happens the girl's father, John Creek, is a friend of mine, as is the gunsmith who built her rifle, Bruce Artus.

By NICK BONHAM
THE PUEBLO CHIEFTAIN
Caylyn Creek has her eyes focused on something many girls her age have no idea of and little interest about: a target - sitting 1,000 yards away.

Through the scope of a $5,000, high-precision rifle, Caylyn, 10, who wears glasses to read in her Goodnight Elementary fourth-grade class, recently became the youngest shooter to participate in a National Bench Rest Shooters Association-sanctioned event.

I hate that her gun is worth more than my entire collection.

perception, that's an ugly sentiment.

Larry ~ I'm sure her dad and everyone who knows her is very proud of this young lady!

Glad my daughter isn't reading this.

She'd be unhappy with her CZ 452.
