15 Year Old Clay Shooter
Locked, loaded and ready for aim.
15 year old Megan Rice is shooting clay pigeons.
Since age ten this teen has had a gun in her hands, but shooting is not always something she always been comfortable with.
"I was very scared I was nervous and I was probably shaking when I went up there to shoot but but my grandpa whoI was shooting with really encouraged me and helped me and now im used to the nerves," says Megan.
The typical age for a competitive female skeet shooter is about 30 but Megan at half their age has beat hundreds of other women, and megan says it never gets old.
"There are different targets at every station that's pretty exciting because you never get bored, there is always something new to do, and winning is also pretty fun.
Megan has already won several competitions both in and out of state, many of her competitors are 2 or even 3 times her own age.
To Megan's father shooting is more than hitting a target it a bonding experience each time they're out here.
"It's allowed us to have a lot of time together that is one on one and that is just time spent that is unforgettable," says Randy Rice.
Megan is constantly preparing for her next tournament, but more importantly, she's aiming on a future in shooting. She dreams of the Olympics, but college is her next target.
"I'm hoping to get a college scholarship if I can get good enough to make a team, than there is a possibility of getting my college paid for."
