How did it shoot?

I picked one up for my grandson (not PINK thank you!) but have not taken it to the range yet. Looks perfectly sized for smaller youths.

Re: Daughter and her new Rascal

Shoots great for her, way too small for me. She did good with the open sights but she wants an open red dot. Easy to use, nothing to pull back to cock it. Automatically cocks when you pull the bolt back. Very nice feature, the Cricket doesn't have that. The Accu Trigger is really nice and smooth as well. Great little gun.

I plan in getting one for my Son in a year or so, and not another pink onr, hehe.

For me that would be enough reason to post lots of pics on Facebook. I hope to see LOTS of pictures of children enjoying shooting sports on FB in the future. I do hope the antis didn't win the battle (posting pro gun pics w/ children on FB) with one shot.

Did you shoot any "fun" targets? My little one has a special vendetta against coffee cans.

To quote my sister, D'awww.

Very nice, Aaron.

It is always nice to see a young person, and a girl to boot, get introduced to the sport. Especially amid all the unpleasentness at the moment.

I was at the range store yesterday and heard this little voice among the usual adult din say, "daddy, I wanna go watch people shoot". She couldn't have been more than four years old.

Re: Daughter and her new Rascal

Thanks. She really loves it. Had to talk her into this one because she wanted a semi auto But those were all to big and heavy for her. After shooting this one, she is really happy with it. Good shot too

She picked out some Zombie paper targets. And I have a dualing tree, one of those resetting gallery type targets and four of those orange rubber bouncing targets.

"We were at Walmart the other day and I pointed at that cute little pink single shot 22 and said to my wonderful wife "I think I'll get one of those for Livy in a few years".
Nothin will get you the stink-eye faster from my wife than saying you want to buy a pink gun in a few years for our still-infant daughter. "

^I posted that in another thread about pink guns.
Theres still plenty of time to convince the wife its a good idea
