    Lori is very proud to say she shot expert with the M16A2 while she was "camping out" in the Air Force. I spent many years in Army Recruiting reviewing applicants test scores. Females seem to have an inate ability to fire a weapon when given the opportunity to train. It has to give you a different way of looking at them (the women). I, personally, love girls with guns!

    My cousin has a theory that it is the extra ballast.

    Nah, it's that most don't have all the bad habits to overcome.

    Nailed it

    Got it on the head, mate. Male students had to get past what they already knew from TV. Always fun on the range. Most females would quickly say they had no experiance and listened closely to instruction. Males would not.

    Lori was an X Ray Tec. She had a natural ability with weapons and did well with almost anything she was handed. My mother was like that.

    It's called a CPL. Concealed Pistol License. Not a CCW or a CCL.

    It does state that. The odd thing is that the RCW's refer to both a concealed pistol license and License to carry a concealed pistol. So technical ours has a dual name.

    Which are one and the same. The only issue is what initials to use.

    We now live in a world of initials, probably brought about by our obsession with "texting".

    Nah. I am willing to bet it was brought on by the military. They use all sorts of acronyms. I was first introduced to the world of ridiculous acronyms when I went to work for Boeing.

    Probably some of the first you learned were "IAM, AFL-CIO, or SPEAA"

    LOL. Actually we learned all the acronyms for the assembly/drill jigs and drawings. I had already known IAM.

    Oddly enough I remember my sniper school instructors at Ft Campbell saying the same thing. He said men try to muscle the weapon while women finese the rifle. Its true.
