    Why I Say Yes Ma'm and No Ma'm to My Wife

    Here is the picture of my wife's target from this afternoon.

    Bersa Thunder .380 at 25'
    7 rounds of WWB 95 gr.
    7 rounds Federal Hy-Shok 90 gr.
    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."

    George - you have realized - there is nothing for it but to accept second place

    Great shooting - does she have roots in the Oakley family!

    Not that I know of. There is the possibility. I think Oakley is an Irish name and my wife's maiden name is Mackin which is Irish. Two of her sisters and a niece and nephew went to Ireland last summer doing research into the family. Leah (my wife) is the youngest of 10 children (Irish Catholic ). She has 6 brothers and 3 sisters in that order. Her youngest brother jokingly told her yesterday that good shooting runs in the family. He said that their dad used to tell them that his nickname during WWII was "Pistol Packin' Mackin." I think maybe I'll send an email to Tim Schmidt over at CCM and see if he want to put the picture of an almost 50 year old, but very good looking shooter on the cover. She plays the piano for the college's traveling ensemble and frequently gets asked what year she is. Tim is always looking for cover ideas. She would be a normal person but a not normal person for a gun mag cover. When I get home today I'll send him a sample photo and see what he says. If I'm gonna be second place it should be to a cover girl.

    Pistol Packin' Mackin Rides Again

    Here are the photos I am going to send Tim at CCM. You can easily tell that I am not a photographer. Is this cover material?

    George - certainly a lovely looking lady - no problem there and she would grace a cover very nicely.

    I'd let Maria see these but she would probably come back to you with some suggestions for odd changes - so then shoot some fresh versions to suit. I have done two lots of cover pics, one has been used the other not yet but in each case I reshot a time or two to get it right for Maria.

    Great potential

    No shock to me.
    I find on average females tend to be better shots then males.

    Now keep that knowledge under your hat. If you donít... the male gender will soon be eradicated!

    I sent in a pic of me shooting an IDPA course that they say they LOVED because it clearly shows my extracting 45 case in the air right above the weapon. The USP fullsize 45 is a very photogenic gun.

    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."
