    Yes

    You know her? She shooting rimfire or air?

    BTW, you would not believe (or maybe you would) how fancy of an airgunning setup I saw an attractive young gal (20ish) shooting the other day at H&H Range in OKC. She had the full red/white/blue competition outfit / jumpsuit thingy, a superfancy Anschutz or similar style rifle, and an entire gun stand, about the height of her head, which stand's sole purpose was to rest the rifle on between her standing shots. Very fancy and cool - I was transfixed that such a PYT was so into airgun shooting here in river city.

    If her eyes aren't down-range, her finger ought to be well away from the trigger, I'd say.

    Looks like a air rilfe to me or maybe that big a$$ handle on the side of the rifle might be for something else.

    Still, young women in shooting sports always make me smile. :)

    Based on shooting distance and the cocking handle, I'd have to say air.

    I THINK that's an FWB 603 air rifle, but I'm not sure.

    And, while it may not look like it, I'll bet big money her finger IS off the trigger. If she didn't have good discipline in that regard she would never finish a match without being disqualified. 3.5 oz triggers will teach you about keeping your finger off the trigger better than anything else I know of. ;)

    I'd bet on a Walther LG210

    Don't know from Airguns - except I was shooting next to that same rifle this morning (the airguns are on the rimfire line at my range).
    Impressive, not as impressive as the gal shooter in the pic, but the gun was memorable of itself:D

    On closer inspection, it is, indeed, a Walther. The logo is clearly visible on the cheekpiece of the stock...

    "Only in my country can girls THAT cute win national shooting matches"

    FORT BENNING, Ga. (Army News Service, 26 Aug., 2003) -- She says she's "just one of the guys." But when this female soldier triumphed over hundreds of the country's best rifle shooters, she became the first woman to win a particular national shooting title.

    Shooting her M-16A2, Spc. Liana Bombardier, a U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit service rifle shooter, won the Service Rifle National Long Range Rifle Championship at Camp Perry, Ohio. Bombardier garnered the Billy C. Atkins Trophy as the highest scoring service rifle shooter in the National Highpower Rifle Long Range Championships Aug. 15 - 18.

    The 21-year-old soldier is the first woman in the 100-year history of the matches to win the trophy awarded to the service rifle (now a M-1, M-14 or M-16) shooter with the highest aggregate score over the entire championships.

    "The Atkins Trophy is a hard trophy to win and I was thrilled to find out I had won it," Bombardier said. "I was behind by 5 points going into the last day of competition. I shot well that last day and came up ahead. I never thought I was going to win it."

    Bombardier also fired her M-16A2 in matches at 600, 800, 900 and 1,000 yards, and won the Service Rifle Category in the Palma Individual Trophy Match and the High Master Category in the Porter Trophy Match. She also won the Annie Oakley Trophy for being the best female shooter in this year's Interservice Championships at Quantico, Va.

    "I attribute my success to the great equipment, the gunsmiths and the coaching staff behind the line giving shooters' advice and help," Bombardier explained.

    And how does she feel about being the lone female training with more than a dozen of the Army's best male shooters on the USAMU Service Rifle Team?

    "I get treated like everyone else, but I expect a lot of myself," she said. "I would like to tell other shooters, especially women, to get out there, practice and enjoy the competition."

    Bombardier started shooting in 1995. She was the 2001 Junior Service Rifle National Champion, a member of the 2000 Trophy Cup Championship Team and won the Arizona State Junior Service Rifle Championship in 1996, 1999, 2000 and 2001.

    Pretty cool, except for the trigger thing everyone's already mentioned.

    "Mmmm, women's prone [time out for happy thoughts]." - lol

    Holy terror, and Wicked Felina - hee.

    Tam, where can your cute range pic be found? I want to blow these up and plaster my bedroom wall with posters like this, kinda like I had in the late 70s, with Farrah Fawcett, Susan Anton, etc. ('specially of you Tam). ;)

    I've been fortunate enough to meet many of the most talented women shooters in the United States.... Kim Rhodes, Launi Meili (Gold medal at Barcelona), Deana Wigger, Michelle Scarborough, some national and international champions, some not...

    For some funny reason, the shooting sports tend to attract some VERY attractive women.

    Very fond memories of a little redhead at the 1991 National Smallbore Matches still haunt my dreams regularly...

    sorry, the Israeli is cuter than all the challengers that have been presented.

    I'm disappointed everyone beat me to the "champion of the prone position" joke... I had a good one too.
