    Out of my mind, brb never.
    Decided to go shooting today with the SO, and brought her to my super secret squirrel shooting spot. She was a little rusty, but managed to keep the majority of her shots on paper at ~15 and 30 yards with the AR (both .22 and .223) and the Beretta.

    Pics (sorry for the shitty cell phone pics, we had to hike everything in, so no camera):

    EDIT: It was more like 7-22 yards now that I look at the pics again.

    The spot and view.

    I guess it's because of the cell phone camera, but it looks like someone added a girl with a rifle to a Bob Ross painting. Actually looks pretty cool.:cool: I dig the fashionable shooting glasses.

    Some minor tips but ones that do help. On the picture of shooting the AR off the tree branch. If you sit or kneel with the right knee up you can rest the right elbow off the right knee. This creates sort of a mono-pod for the rear of the rifle. It is real steady The crossed arms holding the stock to the shoulder is great for prone or when shooting off the bench. It is not ideal for the sitting off the brach posisiton. The support hand would be better either holding one of the legs of the bipod or holding the top of the handguard in the overhand position.

    If the bipod was not the correct height for the branch you could barricade hold off the branch. Set the fore end down on the branch and clamp your hand on top of the handguard using your thumb and index finger. Then using your other 4 fingers to somewhat hook or grip the branch. This in conjuction of the knee and elbow monopod would be the most stable platform. Lean into the shot slightly too.

    On the pistol pic she is leaning backwards which gives her zero leverage in recoil. Her grip is way wrong too. Look at her thumb of her support hand. It's behind the gun. This is wrong and he is either going to get bit by the hammer or sliced by the slide.

    Good pics though. Montana is beautiful this time of the year.

    I don't know how you asian people are made, but us white folk only have 4 fingers total + this thing we call a thumb. God sneak an extra finger on there for you guys? :squint:

    Get her to a class. If you really want her to put it down for you, get her to a fighting pistol class. And fix her ugly-ass grip on that pistol.

    LOLs, yeah, "generally" it doesn't work too well on a bottom feeder, but she has small hands it looks like, and a Beretta grip has a little girth, if she's pointing naturally with it, it could work. A good grip is important, but not paramount.

    When I'm spinning the wheel gun that's the grip that was taught to me that I still use, with my strong hand thumb a little higher.

    Actually, looking back at it, her grip and stance looks just rite. Gun rite in front of the face box, and nice finger trigger control. Just don't let her drop the gun into index, rather push out to the target.

    You gotta keeper dude! :bigthumb:

    Not trying to harsh on anyone here. AB13 you know your my boy. Also I am all for new shooters, and especially new attractive female shooters. That grip could definateatly use improvement. If that grip were corrected she would be able to manage recoil more effectively, and shoot more accurately. This would make shooting more enjoyable and also start down the road of developing shooting skills.

    Proper thumbs forward modern iso grip.

    Here is the bracing the elbow off the knee to create more support for the rear of the gun. You can see I have a bipod but in this instance it is better not to use it. It allows me to get behind the gun better as oppose to being strait up. Being behind the gun gives you more leverage.

    Yeah, overlooked the leaning back, that's never good. Also didn't really look too hard on hand placement on the gun, your rite. It could use some adjustment.

    It's all good, not that you don't, but I strive to provide more positive feedback. I learned after my wife walked out on me during a golf outing, I could be too technical at times.

    When I'm at a match, and someone really bugs me for advise, I'll give them "one" key instruction, because I hate to have them overthink it. I try to go more off "feel" than "mechanics" during a match because I tend to get paralyzed from over analysis. Practice is when you can really get technical.

    But in ways that can have negative effects as well.

    Yar is a shooter, and knows what he's talking about.
