There's more video stuff! Whoever this girl's dad is, he is an awesome parent. If he is a member here, good work bud. She probably can kill targets way better than me.

Awesome! Nice to see she kept going and didn't give up even after everyone else finished.

Damn, talk about a REALLY cool dad.  When I have kids I plan on giving them as much weapons training as I can possibly give them.

Its cool to see her using a "real" pistol and not just plinking around with a .22lr.

Looks like a Tactical Response class.

Got to be frustrating with a handgun that keeps malfuncting. Probably limp wristing issues though.

Nice! I feel bad for the boys in her school :P

She may have had snap caps in the mag to simulate malfunctions too.

I think they may have snap capped a few rounds in her mag to do TRB drills.

In the description for the videos, it said it is a Tactical Response class.

im pretty sure he is a member here. and yes, he threw in snap caps so shed learn clearance drills..etc

Something for me to emulate with my daughter. She's only 2 months old, but she'll get there.

She was doing better than alot of grown men I've been in pistol classes with. She may take a bit longer to clear a malf, but she has a full size pistol and 11 yr old hands.



I think she's doing awesome for any age.

I'm impressed. Last time I went shooting I saw fully grown men with CPLs collapse and fail to reload empty weapons in a timely fashion.

She needs to meet my 13 year old son.

I noticed she didn't flinch at all during the misfires in anticipation of the recoil.  Good for her!!

I was an instructor on that class.  She was a remarkable student.  She ran a Glock 19 and shot every round of every drill (almost 1000 rounds in 2 days).

I remember a distinct lack of excuses for performance from the rest of the group.  Having a amazingly motivated 11 year old girl in the class does an excellent job of making other students humble.

The majority of the malfunctions you see her clear are dummy rounds.  While other students often start to skip out on their dummy rounds after a few hours, she would often load more than the required 2 in each magazine.

Glocks are WEEEEELLLL known for being finicky when limp-wristing. That's why I'll never carry one.

Aaaahhh,ok,that's a great way to train. Although I think there was at least one FTE.

This is a crap shoot, but there is a girl here in Michigan who has tagged some awesome bucks named McKenzie that is the same age. Her dad is a neurosurgeon, they have about 300 acres, and it would not surprise me if this isn't the same girl. A family friend posts about her over on another forum I visit.

snap caps- very good training.....

I am not trying to take anything away from this kid, but how did this idea that someone who can field strip a gun is somehow an expert in weapons ?
I have heard this my whole life: "they made us field strip our rifles blindfolded...."  I have recently read this in a novel, I think it was the Bourne Supremacy where we are supposed to think that this guy is an honest to God super secret agent because he can field strip a gun blindfolded or something. This is like our society's ultimate benchmark of a gun person.

Why ?

First of all, it isn't hard. You can teach someone how to field strip an AR15/M16 in a couple minutes. If they do it a couple times, they could do it blindfolded. That doesn't mean they are some kind of bad ass. It doesn't mean they can hit the side of a barn firing the rifle even if they were inside the barn. To me at least, it doesn't mean a damn thing.

Again, good for her and good for her dad teaching her all this stuff. She looks like she is learning to do more than just take apart a rifle. The stuff that is actually difficult and something to be proud of.

AWESOME.


I'm doing my best to get my daughters interested in shooting sports.  At just under 3, my oldest could cycle, load, cock and fire her pink cricket .22.  If she takes half the interest that girl had I'll be happy.

I had my boys doing things like this at a very early age. From age 8 and up, they could handle Sig and Ruger semiautos fairly well. One shot every week with a police officer at age 12, reloading the shells for the police officer, himself, and another shooter.
Now the boys are in the 29 to 31 range and they don't really have much use for handguns or firearms in general other than hunting.
The chances this girl will still be interested in shooting as she gets older is still unknown.
I think it is great that Dad does this with her, but I hope he is letting her go because of her own interest, not because she wants to please him.
We definitely want her to stay in the shooting sports as she gets older!

She does better than most people I have seen do that drill.

Totally BA! I have buddies that can't clear malfs as well as her. She is gonna be a beast when she gets older.

Kids shouldn't handle explosives.  





(I own a Glock, just some friendly ribbing.)

Good for her that she's learning a useful skill.

The whole "really?" thing has become quite the trend.



Not knocking you, just something I noticed lately. Every student I have goes out of their way yo ask "really?" to each other and elswewhere.

LOL. Quit shooting like a Nancy and you wont have that problem.



FWIW Glocks are the only rentals we had at our range they were NOT picky about people limp wristing them.



also she was using dummy rounds. Something that I bet 99% of people here DONT do when training.
