I'm with you, Killie! Us uppity types can be found in the most "unconventional" of places...Board rooms, Senate floors, and yes, even Archery ranges [Big Grin] . Pretty cool...!

I don't know, I'm going to Baltimore this weekend. If I see any "girls" shooting I'll let you "guys" know. [Razz]
It will be good to see you again Killdeer. [campfire]
Good thread. Looks like it stirred lots of response. I agree with you, it is "self-limiting" and just really, really sad.
(But my agreeing with you doesn't count. I know better than to disagree. [Big Grin] )


P.S.Do I get voted back in now? Please?

how'd I miss this thread?

"shooting is not for girls" I agree 100%.
Killy, send me all of your bows. And while you're at it, send me all of your guns to. girls shouldn't play with such things [bigsmyl]

Aram, we voted you back in, but you can't use the ladies' room yet.

Great thread Killie! I enjoyed reading it and also enjoyed watching Tarz' girls on the video. Wow...they have grown. In some ways I am a lot like Sarah. [Wink]

BTW...the surest way to get me to do something is to tell me I can't!

Not shooting but flyfishing made her a custom rod and she loves it - only 4.
I started her bow and she keeps on hounding me for it.

I posted on here the other day and, as I (too) often do anymore, I must have hit the "close" button instead of the "Add Reply" when I finished. I love the thread and after Baltimore and Hickory (next two weekends) I am gonna get back here for all these great Full Draw Pics and fill up the new Page 16 on my Traditional Bows Drawn pages of my web site.

I just last Friday found myself teaching a crash course in Trad shooting to the Lady Marine who is the ex-wife of another great Marine friend - so she could introduce her Colonel's Scout Troop to trad archery this past weekend. She was a good compound shooter (Her ex-husband bought her my old wheel bow when I quit that), and a natural athlete and shooter. We had a blast and she took to trad like a duck to water. She brought back the "stuff" I loaned her for the Scouts yeasterday and said it went great, she had a ball, the kids had a ball, the Col. was happy as a clam, he and the Kids sent thanks to me - and (GunnySgt) Sara is hooked on trad and is coming back for more shooting - wants to get a primitive bow now. She says, "... the more primitive the better - I'm not into it for the competition, I'm into it for the SHOOTING!" You go, girl! I'm delighted to help any that I can. She'll outshoot me in no time - just like her ex-husband did - LOL.

(Now let's see if I can find the "Add Reply" button - [archer] )

Good going, Bernie! Nice to see ol' Countrygirl pop her head in the door, too. I know all too well her scrappy nature, and do my best to stay on her good side. Besides, I'm scared of Tom.

I hope to get lots of good pics this weekend at Baltimore, though it looks like my camera is starting to fall prey to the vicissitudes of time and travel. I hope it doesn't crap out completely. I think I will bring my film camera as backup.

Archery lasts a lifetime.

NO DOUBT LYRICS

"Just A Girl"

Take this pink ribbon off my eyes
I'm exposed
And it's no big surprise
Don't you think I know
Exactly where I stand
This world is forcing me
To hold your hand
'Cause I'm just a girl, little 'ol me
Don't let me out of your sight
I'm just a girl, all pretty and petite
So don't let me have any rights

Oh...I've had it up to here!
The moment that I step outside
So many reasons
For me to run and hide
I can't do the little things I hold so dear
'Cause it's all those little things
That I fear

'Cause I'm just a girl I'd rather not be
'Cause they won't let me drive
Late at night I'm just a girl,
Guess I'm some kind of freak
'Cause they all sit and stare
With their eyes

I'm just a girl,
Take a good look at me
Just your typical prototype

Oh...I've had it up to here!
Oh...am I making myself clear?
I'm just a girl
I'm just a girl in the world...
That's all that you'll let me be!
I'm just a girl, living in captivity
Your rule of thumb
Makes me worry some

I'm just a girl, what's my destiny?
What I've succumbed to Is making me numb
I'm just a girl, my apologies
What I've become is so burdensome
I'm just a girl, lucky me
Twiddle-dum there's no comparison

Oh...I've had it up to!
Oh...I've had it up to!!
Oh...I've had it up to here!

I saw this cute picture on the Tn Classic thread. Reminded me of my granddaughter when she was young.
