"is required to wear a leather and canvas mix suit for protection"

Umm, no.

Congrats to Mekenzie for her excellence.

Good to see a positive news story about shooting on the CBC website.

Quote:
The pellets are about 0.5 millimetres


Oh come on... is she shooting dust?

Good for her!

This should have made the national news. Maybe it did and I missed it. July is almost 6 months ago...

Couple tins of R-10 Match Rifle in the back ground of one of the photo's....

She has good stance there with the elbow into hip position....

Yes - good standing position. Feet bit further apart than I would have thought,

but whatever works for HER is the important reason.

Positive write up is good.

Elbow in hip is handy but only works for people with short or shorter frames. Those of us with,

tall frames (& short legs, but still 6'1"), have to rest the elbow on the rib cage. Nowadays, that's just too hard on

the back, so offhand (off the hands) is the best position for me.
