Why no female rifle smiths?

Was just thinking the other evening. What's the deal??

Plus the smiths that hang around here aren't all that good to look at [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

From looking at Shawn's son's pic and Kirby's daughter's pic one can tell that they both got there good looks from their dads.........Cause their mothers still have theirs! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    I sure hope you don't need any smith work done in the near future. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Where did I put that "Bad Customer List" I have a new name to put on it!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    In all seriousness however, smiths spend alot of time chewing the fat with customers, can you imagine if we had a pretty little girl as a smith, you hounds would never leave her alone to get any work done!!!!

    I thought that a shapely, friendly front desk girl that knew nothing about rifles would be perfect. I could get more work done, no one would care if I was in or not.

    I knew of a gunsmith that was looking for a good counter person when he had the same thought as you that a young women would take some of the heat off of him. So he interviewed three young women, the first one had years of experience as a receptionist and the daughter of a gunsmith, the second was experienced as a book keeper and was an experienced shooter, the third was a business expert a shooter of some ability and the only daughter in a family of 7 brothers so she could handle any gruff customers.
    I told him that was a tough decision what was he going to do, He just gave me a look that said I was a moron and said " It wasn't a hard choice at all, I hired the one with the biggest breasts dummy!"
    Now realizing his criteria for hiring, I gave him the look and said " Your the dummy if she's doing the job right that ain't the side you'll be seeing from the back of shop.
