Skye Is A Sharp Shooter

The past few months I’ve been going through the process of becoming a member of the Scarborough Fish and Game Association. It’s a 177 acre facility with many ranges across many shooting disciplines. Tuesday evening the membership finally voted me in as the newest member. Wednesday evening I took Skye down to the club and shot a paper target on one of the utility ranges. We both had a lot of fun.

Skye was very safe. She listened intently as I briefed her on safety procedures, range rules and firearm operations. She primarily shot with my Ruger Mark III Hunter .22 pistol. When that got heavy she switched to my Glock G26 9mm, but she didn’t like the harder recoil.

Her shots early were high and to the right. After discussing techniques to improve her accuracy she was able to shoot a loose grouping around the center of the target. I was quite proud.

We had a great time. She says she wants to go again, which I think is terrific. She’s an excellent shooter.

  1. I thought shooting was very fun and exciting. I was surprised that I was going to shoot a real gun. The 9mm Glock G26 was scary. I thought the gun would hit me in the face after I shot. I really enjoyed picking up all the brass I could find after shooting. I really enjoyed shooting the .22.

    Dad, thank you for inviting me to go shooting with you.
