Gender and Marksmanship

Myth – “Shooting is a man’s game.”

Fact – Gender has no factor on marksmanship skill.

Marksmanship is a technical skill requiring little strength. The physical component of shooting has more to do with the endurance and coordination of specific muscle groups and reflexes unique to marksmanship and raw muscle provides almost no benefit.

Anyone that is able bodied enough to lift a firearm will, in time, with sufficient correct practice, develop these consistent reflexes and endurance. “Holding Hard” is an oft heard expression regarding shooting well, but crude force isn’t the answer. Holding with consistency is.
