I believe we managed just fine.

It's a Savage Axis XP. Entry-level, to be sure, but Mel's first centerfire rifle. This one has a detachable, four-round box magazine and a 3-9x40 scope.
It's just under 44" long, with a 22" barrel, and weighs 6.5 lbs unloaded. We're heading back to the Birchwood Range this weekend so she can break it in.
She's a happy camper. For that matter, so's her dad. :^)
