    That’s pretty special, Dustin. Has your daughter tried it at that range? Is she up to that level of marksmanship yet? I loved teaching my younger daughter to shoot. It was great watching her succeed at something new and enjoy it as much as she did. Sharing with our kids is pure joy. Thank you for the great work you do with children and for being the role model and spokesman for the shooting sports that you are.

      Thanks Grady, the kids are still plinking at about 25 yards but I think all of them (ages 5, 8, and 13) have connected with golf balls at that distance. Sure wish we had more .22s to play with! One day…

    Dustin, your statement about the rifles not being sighted in correctly on TS. This is something I’ve wondered about from the start. Too many shots that should have been EASY for any of you to make. I couldn’t imagine me missing many of those.

    What was the TS routine on the sighting of the various guns?

      Geoff it was different for every challenge. Some challenges we couldn’t touch anything due to both teams using them, others we were allowed to adjust the sights but only had limited ammo and no tools to do so. But that being the case it always comes down to marksmanship. We always had practice rounds (even if it was just three) the day before. You just had to realize that the sights are just for reference, and hold accordingly.

        rather what I figured. It seemed there had to be some element of randomness in the game with the level of shooters on the show.
