Daddy's little girl!




so proud I had to post this up. The little one wanted to help make bullets with me today. I'm so choked up I don't think I could shoot straight...

I'm one step closer to making sure my daughter will never grow up to be a victim.

Fantastic.




How long did it take to "straiten up" your bench, before you could take the pics?

Now take that girl to the range, then buy her a nice 1911 in 9mm.

You are one lucky (and smart) dad.

Good job Dad! Good to see this kinda stuff. Mine gets home May 25th, she's only eight but always wants to see "what's in the safe, now" and "her" Springfield Loaded, lol. Good times, even more excited to see her now, time together is the BEST! Have a great weekend!

Good for her and I'm glad for you. One small piece of advice, as those look like cast lead bullets. Lead exposure is much more dangerous for kids than it is for adults. Some basic instruction on not touching her mouth or eyes while reloading would be a great idea. Small size vinyl disposable gloves would be even better. It would be terrible for such a nice positive thing to turn into a negative.

I hope you both have many enjoyable hours reloading and shooting.

Very cool that you got her into it........but she is not wearing eye protection! You may alao want to reconsider having her touch lead as it is more harmful to kids than to adults.

BTW it looka like she is more precise than I am!

That's too cool, Dad. While she's at it, I'm down to less than 2500 rounds each in both 9mm and 45acp if you want to mention it to her...

Awesome pics. Can I borrow her some time? Mine is 38 and doesn't want to take time out of her schedule to reload any more.

Good job dad!! My son and daughter help me out every once in a while. Their reloading job is to feed the casings in the progressive and then put the bullet on the case for the final stroke of the press. They seem to enjoy it and I enjoy every minute w/ them. They really seem to be interested in it and like to ask questions about reloading and learning about it. However, they enjoy shooting more. My son just turned 10 and my daughter will be 9 in two months.

takes me back to when I was a young'n -. My father told me the night before that we were going to go shoot the next day but we would have to load up a few before we went out. I got up at 530 the next day, on a single stage press and had eight hundred sized and primed before he got up for breakfast... still remember him coming into the reloading room with his coffee, looking at me and saying "are you nuts?"

Put some eye protection on that kid so she can still see when you go to take her shooting. May also consider latex gloves for lead protection. Kids are not very good at washing their hands effectively and/or remembering to do so.

Rubber gloves? Seriously?

Absolutely! Lead exposure is a much bigger deal for kids than it is for adults. What makes it worse is there is no safe standard for lead exposure for them. Some kids have terrible issues with very little lead exposure compared to others. Why take the chance?

Touching the eyes and mouth, after handling lead, is also to be avoided. Latex or vinyl gloves make that much less appealing.
