Here's my daughter, Pickle at her very first, ever, flintlock shootin' session.
On the cardboard, the shot way high and right was my first one. Got into the rear sight with a screwdriver hard and put the next one in the black dot. Turned the gun over to Pickle and she put her first two shots on the edge of the board, far right. I spun the sight a bit to suit her look at it and she planted #3 at 11:30 above the bull.
I get a kick at target shoots when a little girl is shooting against a bunch of men....and she smokes the scores. ... . Don't ever assume because you are shooting against women that you have it locked up. Be prepared to fake a heart attack or something to save face.
