I'm only 9 years old.

I can't shoot quite that good one-handed yet, but I'm only 9 years old ...

Some of my best times with my girl were at the range.
There's a level of trust there and nobody to hear.
Warning. Sometimes she'll give you too much information.
This is when you take your muffs or plugs off and rapid fire the biggest baddest gun you have.

Enjoy your time with her
