My helper was my cat. He liked to sit on the bench and watch the press move up and down.

Second this. Young Lady probably knows more about ammunition and firearms now than the whole Democratic Central Committee, CNN, and Bloomberg Weakly combined.

Fantastic!

Please keep in mind that if your jacketed bullets have exposed lead core, she should wear gloves to keep the lead off her fingers. This is because kids don't always wash their hands well and they can end up ingesting lead, which is far more serious to youngster's brain development than to us old enough to have grandchildren.

She is almost as cute as my granddaughter, but I might be a little prejudice.

Mine is only 2 so she not assisting yet but her brothers are the best decappers and case trimming assistants to be found.

Excellent assistant Walter! I started a few of my grandchildren helping and learning on the 550b a few years ago when they were 4 or 5; starting early is a good thing!

Send her my way next, I'm starting a run on of .223 and 9mm. She's probably more experienced than most of the people who try to assist me.

Before you know it, she'll be asking for the keys to you car. Don't ask me how I know. Your pix is priceless.

Such a cute little girl and willing to spend time with her Grandpa. My granddaughter is a couple of years younger so I may have a helper soon too......IF I can convince her Mother it will be good bonding time with her Poppy.

Pretty soon she will be wanting to shoot all the ammo you let her make for you. Better be planning on a nice 9mm 1911 for her or letting her shoot yours.

Do you think that there is a chance that grandpa has a smile on his face when he looks at this picture??

Guys, while she did pull the handle once, she was just posing. I did the loading. No exposed lead. Those are Xtreme plated. If I posted fmj, then I erred.

I sold my property in S GA and moved to N. Atlanta in May, last year. Until the model/reloader started kindergarten last month, I picked her up almost every morning for breakfast, and we'd spend the day together. I pick her up at her bus stop after school and have her with me for the rest of the afternoon now.

It's final. My GF, who knows everything about kids & grandkids, has officially declared her "ADORABLE!"

Nicely done!

Our daughter is a fire fighter working 24 HR shifts every third day. Her husband is also a fire fighter working the same shift. My wife and I took care of him after she went back to work for those 24 HR shifts. A few years later, Pregnant with our grand daughter she left her husband and moved in with us. Our granddaughter was born while she lived with us. She moved into her home about 1-2 miles away from us about 6 months later. We see these grandkids all the time. We are so close to these two it is almost like our own kids. Being a grand parent makes life totally worth while. Their enthusiasm keeps us young. The grandson is getting close to the age that I can enlist his help and also teach him the joy of shooting. I need mom's OK for this, but she is also a shooter.
