Women are great shooters!

I don't know what the deal is but it seems the most all women are naturally great shooters.

My wife has only shot a rifle four times in her life and never farther than 100 yards. Well yesterday I took her out to the desert to shoot steel at 800,900, and 1000 yards. Her first four shots at 900 impacted center mass and the group size was 4 inches!! [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

Needless to say we had a great time, and I think she will be wanting her own rifle soon. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I agree with the women being excellent shots. At Williamsport many women do extremely well and end up winning year end aggregates and shooting records.
We have found this to be true for many years now.

You have it made though if the lady likes to shoot with you. Never a problem getting shooting toys and supplies especially if she has her own rifles too.

I want to buy her a good 308 Win this year. It is an expensive hobby and it's nice to have the wife's support. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

My wife shoots at Williamsport(every match) and also hunts with me in Colorado and PA every year.

We are lucky I would say.

Re: Women are great shooters!

I think it has alot to do with the fact that we as men ( ok boys ) grew up with preconcieved notions of rifle recoil etc. so we mentally have "flawed" our brains and have had to "re-learn" the correct ways. Most women have been taught correctly from day one and therfore have had not reason to shoot anyway other than the right way.
My wife shoots my 223 PSS like an expert sniper.. day after day she can put 3 under a quarter at 200 yards.. pretty neat when we have hunters here and they are braggin this and that when we are checking rifles... More often then not she humbles them.....

Re: Women are great shooters!

Wyo.. You hit the nail on the head! I used to shoot competative archery years back and my wife (girlfriend) would follow me to tournements. One day she decided she wanted to shoot, got her set up and had a friend show her the basics and she excelled. They don't battle the deamons we do untill the learn more about what their doing...

I have proved this also with my girls and their .22, they have consistantly outshout boys their age. (8 & 10)

Yes women are great natural shooters (to a point) cause of this "innocence". But Daryl sums it up best when he talks of the power of the burnt gunpowder smell, can't wait for my wife to accompany afield again. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
