It is common knowledge in the shooting world that women are naturally better shooters than men. Of course there are no  absolutes, but generally  according to experts in the field of  bio-mechanics “seventy to eighty percent” of women have better eye hand coordination, an affinity for more highly developed fine motor skills, and a lower center of gravity, than men. Shooting is a function of creating a solid shooting platform (shooting stance), and an ability to pull the trigger without moving the gun.  Women have natural attributes that enable them to master shooting at an accelerated pace.  Fast, accurate shooting is a process of linking and multitasking, a number of shooting fundamentals in the proper order, and women tend to be process oriented. Women, tend to focus on understanding a process and strive to constantly improve it.

SHORT VERSION:in the shooting world when we say “SHOOTS LIKE A GIRL” that is a huge compliment”
