    Try having a kid who shoots on a Rifle team. She can't talk about it in school.

    A child on a RF (Recreational Firearms) Team???? ;P

    How can that be?

    Did you see the article in the NRA magazine about the All Girls team in TN? I think they shot skeet, most are cheerleaders or beauty pageant contestants, and the entire town is in support of them. Good stuff!!!!!

    ;f ;f ;f ;f ;f

    My daughter shoots smallbore 3P and precision air rifle. She's 12.

    2 years ago the older kids on her team won the nation championships at Camp Perry. The adult teams from across the nation that they beat included the Army Marksmanship Unit.

    They had a write up in American Rifleman too.


    "From the August 06, 2003 THE WASHINGTON TIMES article By Gene Mueller (ppC-7) - The Arlington Optimist-Acorns Combined Junior Rifle Club made target shooting history by sweeping the three-position smallbore team events at the U.S. National Rifle and Pistol Championships in Camp Perry, Ohio. The team fired a score of 2,206 with 50 center shots in one match and 2,189 with 50 center shots in the second match out of a possible 2,400 points. Strong winds made the 50-yard competition with smallbore target rifles a particular challenge. An NRA spokesman noted at the awards ceremony that no other junior rifle team in the 100-year history of these matches had swept the team events. The club bested 47 other teams (including adult teams) from across the nation. The team included captain Brian W., 18; Kristina F., 18; Tom K., 17; Emily H., 15; alternate Daniel P., 19; and coach Floyd H."
