A few years ago I took up pistol shooting. It was a reaction against Tai Chi which made me more stressed rather than less - far too slow for me.
I was pretty good a shooting and enjoyed it. The club was very encouraging of women as they wanted to water-down the redneck image of the sport. I may have tested their level of acceptance by knitting while waiting for my turn on the range.
I found this book in our local library. I want it on a t-shirt. :)
