    She had never fired any rounds from the pistol but the WWB.
    At first glance there appear to be only 13 holes, but a closer examination will reveal that the 3 holes just below and to the left of the A are in reality 4 holes.

    When I answer a wife who can shoot like that I say, "Yes, ma'm," and "No, ma'm."

    Jeez.

    I just bought a Bersa, and the thing jumps in my hand like a Mexican Jumping Bean!

    I can feel my manhood shrinking as I type!

    Actually, i'm kiddin'. My fianceé can shoot a .45 better than I can shoot about anything.

    You're 100% correct. Know why? The gals tend to have better hand-eye coordination which is why they also make better aircraft pilots. They also have less B$ to UNlearn. Most guys think that they're experts in three areas....just because they're guys: Women, cars and guns. Of course they're wrong on all three counts and they get into trouble because of it...and they rarely learn. Also guys are raised on poor shooting role models. Dirty Harry and John Wayne for us older guys. Ice Cube and you name the rapper-turned-actor-who-shoots-his-gun-flat-on-it's-side. All of the current crop of action "heroes."
    WOW... I feel the same way!!!

    I especaly feel the same about the "Dr.Froid factor", and seeing way too many bad movies.
    I would only add that Females tend to have a healthy respect for firearm's. Wich IMHO lead to them being more safe when handling a firearm.
    I sometimes dislike showing males from the age of 13-100yrs to shoot, especaly if they are "buddys". Kids, and females are a joy to teach.

    I found when teaching a guy to shoot,they all seem to have this thing of"I just automatically know how to shoot,just because I have testosterone."While the ladies are more apt to be "teachable".
    Sometimes us guys are our worst enemies...

    Fully agree with the statement "They have less BS to UNlearn." There were 5 women in my CCW class, I know at least 3 of them outscored me - good for them!

    Dr: With shooting like that I'd suggest being VERY cautious about when you say "No ma'am."

    Jack, you are correct. The proper response in most cases is to pause, determine the proper answer, and then answer with, "No, ma'am." if appropriate.

    I'm always real nice to my Mom for the same reason. Well, not really nice, but I try not to make her too mad. Excellent shooting there, you seem proud as you should be.

    Men will never be experts when it comes to women. No amount of money can buy that knowledge, believe me it would be a wise investment if it were possible. Guns and cars take experience. Although some guys are naturally more mechanical. My show teacher in high school said women are often better welders as well. He said every time he's had a girl in his welding class they've been the best in that class.
