Gun Loving Gal Wins Gold for Old Glory

    With so much debate about guns, there is some irony that America's first Olympic gold this year went to 19 year old Virginia Thrasher, who won in 10M air rifle.  Ms. Thrasher is a West Virginia University student who is a member of the 15 person US Olympic rifle team.
    Congratulations on the good shooting Virginia. Hope you are not villified too much.

I'm surprised dannie's media allowed the story to get out. I hope she doesn't go out and kill a bunch of people. Common sense would call for stricter background checks for Olympians, right hero?

air rifles... I'll bet 111 could even handle one of those...

Yup, I can handle just about anything. Short or long range, fast or slow. So be careful, 9:48. And just so you know, air rifles use the same skill set as anything else. Are you implying the woman's accomplishment is less so? There's probably only one part of you she couldn't hit. Even Olympic champions have their limits. You can't hit what you can't see.
