    Went to the indoor shooting range today. My Granddaughter has spent the week with me and Grandmaw. I thought it was time I taught her to shoot. I went through all the do's and dont's of gun saftey and away we went to the range. I really believe she is going to be a natural marksman. At sixteen years old she picked it up real quick. Check out the target she shot at seven yards.

    She was shooting a Chiappa 1911-22. That was all her shooting that you see in the target. I did let her shot my 1911 .45 as well, she likes the .22 for her.

    She learning from her grandpa, and she's bounding with you. That's priceless.

    Bonding: a close friendship that develops between adults, often as a result of intense experiences, as those shared in military combat

    Bounding: to move by leaps; leap; jump; spring: The colt bounded through the meadow.

    She is rapidly developing a close relationship with her grand dad.

    Yep; either and/or both will work. ;)
