One of the things I like most about the Camp 9 is how easy it is to handle. I let my 9-year-old daughter fire mine for the first time this past weekend. She's a little thing and is around 50 pounds soaking wet. The stock is still too long for her so I had to help her steady it, but she otherwise did all the work. And with the open sights, she hit a 12-ounce Coke bottle at about 20 yards on her first shot.
