A brand new (in more ways than one) Gun Blogger

Molly Smith, 12 year old Steel Challenge shooter blogging at The Molly Minute. A taste of her first post in January:

For my very first blog posting I want to ask the question what is beauty? I wonder how many people would think that a 12 year old, shooting steel targets or anyone else shooting a gun for that matter, could be beautiful.

When I think about the people I have met shooting, dusty and dirty, big goggles, earphones, hats messing up their hair, and those weird poses and faces they make when they are aiming, I know they are beautiful. They don’t care what they look like on the outside, they are focused on the inside, they focus on shooting the best they can, and focus on enjoying the sport of shooting. The fact that they don’t care if their hair’s messed up, is beauty in itself! They make me want to be the best I can be. I’m lucky; I’ve found beautiful people at a very unusual place, the shooting range.

Not only can she shoot, she writes well and is wise beyond her years. Read the Whole Thing, as they say.

She and her family are reportedly going to be at the Gun Blogger Rendezvous this year too. Makes me wish even more (if that’s possible) that I could afford to go this time. Someday.

Drop by her place and leave a word of encouragement.

Hat tip to Mr. Completely, founder and organizer of the Gun Blogger Rendezvous.
