Just curious. My wife has far more experience in firearms than I do. She comes from a line of army officers (grandfather and great grandfather were West Pointers) and her father majored in Fish & Game at Oregon State, but retired as a colonel in artillery (he was at D-day, mouthed off to Patton, etc.) She was taught to shoot at an early age.
Her ex-father-in-law (Happy to say she's mine now) once decided he would teach this cute young thing a thing or two about shooting with a pistol. Now she's about 5 foot 2 inches and a 100 pound redhead--not a big girl. She pretended to not know anything. The old man was a gambler, so there was $100 on the deal. He carefully set up a couple of targets in the back yard while she was going on about 'the barrel thingie' and pretended to be nervous and clueless and afraid to touch the pistol. The old man shot and did OK and told her the $100 bucks was hers if she could beat him.
She emptied the gun in a cluster of six on the bull's eye in a few seconds. The old man shit his pants and she just smiled and asked him if he had another $100 bucks for a rematch.
Next weekend he had some of his buddies come over. He says, 'Think you can beat her?' He made his money back, but she demanded half for herself.
