Actress Morrigan Sanders is 14. She’s holding a Model 1916 S&W, British Contract in .455 Webley, Enfield arsenal marked, converted to .45 Long Colt after the War, refinished and with Pachmayr grips. To quote her father: “Morrigan tears out the X ring with it. She shoots well, but it’s not like fifteen yards is a long distance.” For most people, it is.
On the other hand, if she can master firearms (she’s had an M4 rifle of her own from age 7), surely the adults amongst us can at least try. If a girl child shows capacity and will to defend self and family in case of emergency, what excuse do grown men have for acting like a prey species?
