My daughter (15 yoa) and I are going in 2020 for a 7 day safari with Kuche and a 10 day with Paw Prints, then a 3 day in Mauritius (for me) to get a Rusa. My daughter has sworn up and down all she would shoot is a zebra. She has never shot a rifle in her life. I was thinking my wife’s 7mm-08 loaded with 170 gr Nosler Partition and a can or my 7x57 (.275 Rigby for you upper crust guys) would be marginal, but enough to work.... Took her shooting today, and started off with a internally suppressed .22 Alpine from PWS, then she shot a .22 Hornet. Shrugged and said it was fun...happy dad. Thought, what the hell, let her try a .308 with a muzzle brake. She didn’t want to do at first bc of the noise. I told her she wouldn’t hear it it she wore ear pro and actually shot it. She did, turned two big rocks to small rocks with two shots at 175 yards off of sticks. Turned to me and said “that’s not bad at all. It’s fun when you can hit stuff. You have anything bigger?” I feel stupid saying I was over joyed and so proud. When she said she would probably shoot more the just a zebra I was beside de myself. I have been told several times not to worry, she would shoot more than just one animal. I didn’t believe them, but I guess they were right. My wife said this may have become an expensive shooting trip with her. I say it’s money well spent. Tomorrow we try the .300 WM and 9.3x62. Sorry for the long post, jut wanted to brag a little and share my happiness with some other guys who may have been in the same boat as me.
