Not where I come from. The girls I grew up with were all quite handy with a firearm, and my mother was a crack shot.

If that was intended as an insult to my mother, Dave, it failed miserably. "Crack shot" is cowboy jargon. I'm sure you wouldn't understand.

Was "crack shot" a Freudian slip? :-)

My mother was too. My dad was a trapper and my mother did all of the skinning. We lived in a small town and had one pig a few chickens and rabbits. One day the pig got out and we were unable to catch it so my mother went in the house got the .22, put one shot into the pig and he dropped like a rock. We were planing on butchering the pig in a few weeks so we just moved up the schedule a little bit. I also had an aunt that drove a semi, this was in the late 40's. It is only city people that think women doing a "mans job" is unique, rural women have been doing the same work as men for years. My sister lived on a farm and she would drive the self propelled combine.

I guess I should have explained that I was speaking in General Terms.

The Dairy Farm I grew up on in '50's Hew Hampshire had plenty of girls that could shoot, ride and wrestle as well as the next.
