    Wanted to share a picture of my daughter shooting this past Friday @ the Hamilton Gun Club ATA Good Friday Shoot.

    We had excellent conditions and it was good to be back @ Hamilton shooting registered targets.

    Cheers
    Phil

    Interesting as to how tightly packed the shot appears to be as it breaks the target. The shot cluster doesn't look more than 2-3" high compared to the known height of the target.

    I agree with you Eric, it really shows how tight the pattern is.

    After we got home Friday night we reviewed the pictures my wife took and we couldn't believe how she took this one @ the right time.
    (She might give Walker a little competition LOL)

    Thought others might enjoy seeing it.

    FYI: Chloe is shooting a 682 with full choke.

    She started about 1 year ago and shot her first registered targets on May 24th @ Hamilton. She is loving the sport of trap and loves getting out and competing

    We travelled to the Pen. and Ohio State shoots last year and had a great time.
    Both my kids are involved.

    Keeps us busy

    I think you are the luckiest guy in the World to have a Daughter that shoots with you. Who cares where the "shot cluster" is.... She is our future. Anytime you can promote a younger person to shoot DO IT.

    Phil, That's a great photo. Save it to disc, get it printed and laminated...put it with your "sentimental valuables'. You are fortunate on so many levels. Thanks. Kind Regards-Graham.

    Danny56: I agree with you 100%. As both my kids grew older, it was harder and harder to get them involved in things we all liked to do as a family.
    This sport of trap allows us to enjoy time together and travel to different provinces and states to shoot. I am very lucky. (The fact I had to take out a line of credit to help pay......thats another story...LOL)

    Graham: Way ahead of you...This one is going up on the wall of fame we have in our Family room. (She has also put it on her faceboook page).

    While I am sharing pictures, thought I would add another one that shows the old man breaking one while squaded with his daughter (She doesn't seem as excited as when I watch her break one )....YA...Life is Good.

    Two great pics, but you have to be proudest of the one of your daughter by herself. I'd have to call it priceless.
