Firearms are very democratic and anybody who will put the correct effort in can learn to shoot. Sports where women and men can't compete as equals are inherently flawed. If a small statured person is automatically at a disadvantage, regardless of skill, then what's the point? You aren't testing skill.
Chest-pounding tests of strength made sense before the dawn of the Industrial revolution, but are ancient throwbacks today. How many jobs today require excessive physical prowess?
Even the military is more concerned with physical endurance, not raw strength. The Schwarzenegger/Rambo movie image of the Special Forces soldier is myth. What is needed is an understanding of good team work, effective tactics, technology and the skill to use it, and enough endurance to keep going.
Marksmanship is like that.
Now, ladies, my question to you is why aren't more of you participating and winning? Nothing scares away ignorant Bubba-types faster than knowledgeable and skilled female shooters.
