Are women better shots?

My mom went on her first elk hunt this year and although she did not get one, I can tell you that she is quite the shot. Both of my sisters are also amazing shots, although they get almost no practice. But whenever they come out to the range, they are always impressive. I am not sure if it has to do with patience or what but it seems like women are incredable shots on average.

Ego aside

Ego aside women have all the right natural atributes to be better marksmen than men. Breath control, hand-eye coordination, patience and the ability to follow instruction without thinking they know it all already are all given to women in abundance over men. There has been talk of eliminating the womens division in discliplines like ISPC and ISPSA as they are quickly narrowing the gap between the sexes.

This is why I always treat

This is why I always treat women with the utmost respect, and why I always pay the jewelry tax associated with major outdoor/firearms purchases.  Whistling

lol, I like your system. 

At my place I can spend whatever I want - as long as I leave twice as much in teh account for her to spend .... 

It's a system that works for us

depends

I think it all depends on the person, some people are just naturals at certain things regardless if they are men or women.  Wish I was.  I have to work hard and perservere on everything in life I've ever attempted.  As others have said, when you come across a good woman shooter, treat her with respect, or hide the guns Big smile
