I'm all for teaching kids basic firearm safety and how to use them but this made me cringe. That girl looks way too young to be running through pistol/rifle/shotgun action events like this. Running around obstacles on uneven ground , reloading and engaging multiple targets is a hazardous sport and requires extreme caution and a level of maturity I don't think this girl is old enough to possess. .

Actually she was shooting a chopped down full auto carbine firing the M-16 cartridge , much more powerful and with more recoil than the 9mm UZI.
Originally posted by normbenignYou're right , the 9 year old was shooting a mini-Uzi, very tiny and light, recoil of the 9mm was probably about the same or even more than the 5.56 from a carbine.

The 12 gauge shotgun would be the heaviest recoil in the bunch. All in all, she appeared competent and well trained, better than many a police officer I've seen.
Originally posted by no1marauderAn Uzi is a poor choice for self defense. I owned a full automatic Mac-10, in 45 caliber,, and got rid of it right away.. they make good movie scenes,, but I would prefer hitting what I am aiming at, not just randomly spraying bullets everywhere,, good for movies, not so good for real life scenarios. That instructor was wrong..
