She was in a Fighting Pistol class I taught earlier this year. She is a very smart and capable young lady.
I always lols @ her shirt. I want my daughter to wear clothes like that (hopefully I'll have boys only though).
she probably shoots better than most of WMD
didnt complete the disassembly forgot the hand gaurds
never gets old though
404 11yr old stripping not found
ban the threadstarter
no hand guards no mission accomplished aye aye sir
Did you guys check out her other range vids?
The Glock 19 is too big for my hands.
regarding her other youtube videos
Yes she should go to something w/ a slimmer grip like a CZ75.
I hope they put dummy rounds into her glock because it should not be jamming like that. She might be limp wristing it, or maybe the wire nubbin from the slide release is above the locking block pin.
She is well along for her age so I'm not going to nit pick little things about her technique, but I wish she would not turn around and break the 180 or hold the gun up near her head like that. That might be a competition shooter thing.
We are paranoid about breaking the 180 with hot guns and always warn shooters not to hold a hot gun up by their head like you see on TV. The reason being is if you trip with your finger on the trigger you could shoot yourself in the head. Conversley moving with the gun pointed down, tripping, with finger on the trigger and you could shoot yourself in the leg. At matches when running we pull the gun in to our chest while keeping the muzzle pointed downrange. Moves your center of gravity back in and you can punch the gun back out to target quickly. I know everyone is thinking "just take your finger off the trigger", which the girl does a real good job with. Still it is just better to do things correctly especially when there maybe new shooters watching.
The 180 looks likes a part of the drills, everyone else is doing it.
It is. Yall keep in mind that that's the FIGHTING PISTOL class. They are teaching them to scan the area and look for other threats.
Totally different from competition shooting scenario.
Your post is a perfect example of a gamer that gives advice outside his area of expertise. Stick to advice on matches.
You are wrong about everything you "nitpick". She is doing everything I taught her and she is doing it very well for an 11 year old novice shooter with limited strength and size.
so are those dummy rounds in some of her mags that causing the failures in some of the videos, or was it the gun itself?
That's about 10 minutes faster than I could strip one at this point.
gaming and training for real life are two completely different worlds.
No she didn't just do a 180 she did a complete 360 with the gun held up to her head. Can't believe that is safe. This is from one of the other youtube videos. You can kind of hear the camera man tell her to turn around.
So in these classes your taught pointing a hot gun strait up is ok.
Safe gun handling is safe gun handling, it's not gamer shit.
She does not have a gun held "up to her head". She has a pistol pointed up.
Your reliance on the "180 rule" is pure gamer shit. Show me a berm or backstop anywhere besides the square range. They don't exist. Your "keep your gun downrange" mentality is a crutch that does not prepare people to handle guns anywhere besides shooting ranges. "Downrange" is where ever your gun is pointing at the time. I teach people real-world gun handling skills in a 360 degree environment with other living people around. Yes, pointing your gun either up or down is typically the safest direction to point a gun.
She is turning all the way around *gasp* because unlike USPSA there might actually be someone behind her that she needs to know about. Life is not a shooting stage and you don't get to step through your gunfight before the buzzer sounds.
There are 4 cardinal firearms safety rules and none of them were broken by anything she did in that video. From your comments, it is clear that you don't understand an arbitrary range rule and how it differs from actual firearms safety.
Quit while you are behind.
