My daughter can out-shoot most the men I know. She simply never flinches. I can out shoot her off a bench but she is much more steady than my old man self is. I can still shoot a pistol better on a good day though. But if it's a gun she is comfortable with like the 226 I have her a few years ago she is really hard to beat. She was 11 when we put everything form a 22 to a 30 06 in her hands and she had no trouble hitting a target at 150 yds off hand with a rifle. 35 yds off hand wit ha pistol and she's spot on.

I've found that if a woman/girl is comfortable with what they are shooting they usually have no trouble figuring out how to shoot it well very fast. I know plenty of men that wish they could say the same.

Congrats on your shooting OP.

I took my wife to the range a while back (details in another thread) and she outshot me with my own gun..haha. I was very proud of her though. She had a lot of fun that day and I hope that she does it again soon. I would enjoy if she and I were able to shoot together regularly. I actually brought her targets home and hung one of the best ones up in my garage/man cave. It is a nice conversation piece and...even my young daughter is proud to say that her mommy shot that well!

LOL

Back in grad school in Virginia Beach, a friend in class told us about an episode after her hubby had recently returned from deployment. He was the CAG on one of the carriers stationed in Norfolk...

She instructed him to follow her into the bathroom and stand in front of the toilet. She then got out a tape measure to assess the distance between the bowl and his nether-regions. She then says, "You can hit a pitching carrier deck, at night, in a storm, from 40,000 feet. But you can't hit a bowl from 30 inches?"

Don't know about you other guys, but my excuse is I don't have any sights on mine. It's not even drilled and tapped for a scope mount.

My favorite excuse is how does anyone expect a left handed shooter to use right handed sights!?!
