Bikini girls with machine guns

Well, not quite, but here’s a gender war story about how the girls at a New Hampshire summer camp have consistently beaten the boys camp in marksmanship since the Reagan administration.

Women are, with only a few exceptions here and there, much better shots than men when they have been properly trained.

Also, women are also much *easier* to train to handle firearms because they possess no preconceptions or misconceptions about how firearms work.

Interesting, that.

Agreed. Only 1 Marine recruit ever fired a perfect qualification score at Paris Island - a woman.

Female flexibility is also an advantage for the sitting and kneeling position. Most of the females lose points while in the standing position, which you have to "muscle" the rifle. Then make it up in the other positions.

I've worked several Army ranges since then. When women are not properly trained, the result is not pretty.

I read somewhere that Bird Flu is expected to arrive in the USA or Canada this fall.
It said it killed almost 60% of those who got infected.
Is it true ?
What can we do to avoid it ?
