A 9 Year Old’s First Multi Gun Match

This little girl proves even children can safely and responsibly handle firearms.

Shooting competitions are extremely fun and educational. They put your shooting skills to their limits and force you to shoot in situations you don’t usually get at a normal shooting range. This 9 year old young lady has been shooting steel, but has stepped into multi gun competitions, with this video being her first ever Multi Gun Match.

Too often I have heard friends say, “Well, I don’t think I’m good enough yet.” Or, “Let me practice just a little more, and then I’ll join you.” To that, I say look at this. You have no excuse!

She rocks the Texas Shooting Star at 2:00!

She is shooting a Smith & Wesson M&P22 handgun and a custom built .22lr AR-15 SBR.

If you’ve never shot in a match, DO IT

As I said, shooting competitions are extremely fun and highly educational. Most shooters are only able to shoot in static shooting bays at a single target that doesn’t move. That is boring compared to the dynamic stages in shooting competitions. Having to engage multiple targets quickly, hit moving targets, and engage targets while moving is… straight up addicting. It pushes your shooting skills to the limit and there is virtually no skill cap.

If you want to become a better shooter, the best (and most enjoyable) way to do that is to go shoot a local match.

If you don’t know where to start, look for a local Steel Challenge, USPSA, or IDPA shooting competition. If you’re feeling ambitious, try and find a Multi Gun or even 3 Gun match.
