As the Brits used to say when advancing an idea that runs contrary to the popular concept of what is and what isn't true. A gentleman of Gastonia city in one of the Carolinas first gave me an idea that being manly just might be a handicap none's ability to achieve rifle accuracy. He had a T/C rifle that was so bad he didn't know anyone he hated enough to sell it to. We got that straightened out and his wife and daughter used it to win prizes all over the eastern seaboard. Yes. women can be better shots than men. It's nothing about how they are built, nothing to do with glands or any of that funny stuff. Actually Its not their advantage, It's out disadvantage in being men who for some reason has led us to think that being men we have an edge when it comes to rifles. accuracy and all of the manly arts. That is our handicap. Before we can learn anything we have to put aside that feeling that already know how to do just about everything. and certainly most things connected with rifles. Women come on the scene like a blank sheet of paper. They listen to the advice, they follow instructions Men will edit the advice and perform the instructions their way. That's the difference. I almost got knocked down a few times by newbies who resented the very idea that anyone should tell them how to perform the manly art of shooting a rifle. Masculinity has nothing to do with it. Doing it right has everything to do with it. Dutch who had to develop his own advice.
