* Girls Can Shoot
Annie Oakley - born Phoebe Ann Mosey in 1860, was the Wild West Show's star attraction for 17 years, marveling spectators with amazing shooting feats. At 90 feet, Annie could shoot a dime tossed in midair. In one day with a .22 rifle she shot 4,472 of 5,000 glass balls tossed in midair. With the thin edge of a playing card facing her at 90 feet, Annie could hit the card and puncture it with five or six more shots as it settled to the ground.
Plinky Topperwein - A pioneer trapshooter among her sex and one of the greatest-if not the greatest - woman marksman of all times. In 1904, she became the first woman to break 100 straight at trap, a feat which she was to accomplish over 200 times in her career. She recorded fourteen 200 straights before the days of registered shooting. Plinky set an endurance record at Montgomery, Ala. in 1916 by breaking 1,952 of 2,000 targets thrown for her.
Margaret Thompson Murdock - First markswoman to win a medal in Olympic history. Three position small-bore rife shooting (1976) silver medal winner. Graduate of Kansas State, 1965.
Kim Rhode - Four-time shotgun Olympian, 2 gold, 1 silver, 1 bronze (1995 - 2008). She won her first Gold Medal for double trap, in 1996 at age 16 and as the youngest member of the U.S. Summer Olympic Team.
