Shes perfectly fine. That lead sled eliminated 90% of felt recoil. If you watch the scope, it moved back only 1" or so. It looks bad but she flinches badly and starts to lift her head away as she pulls the trigger.

Shes ready to go shoot again she says.

You didnt mention it was a 100gr load, you only mentioned it was 100 yard shot., maybe you should have let her shoot a 50/60gr load?

I'm the type of person that worries too much about shooting accidents or incidents, I think "many" could be avoided, it's been proven time and time again, recoil with a scope can do some serious damage to a shooters face.

Thank God she pulled this one off without a problem but in the future you might want to lead others into shooting weapons with a weapon that might be more appropriate to start a youngster off with.
