Rants, Raves and Recipes from the Edge of Sanity
I would take the claim of 54 with a huge helping of salt. The Russian Army propaganda department killed more Germans than their snipers ever did. In Normandy a British intelligence officer interrogated every German POW he could find who had been on the Russian front to find out what they feared the most. The POWs feared the T34, katyusha rockets and the human wave attacks, but considered Russian snipers a nuisance. I have the book somewhere in the house but I can't lay my hands on it.

You go girls! We can out shoot, out think and basically rule most males. If we choose not to, It's because you are boring, predictable and childish.
Isn't the top picture from a Russian dating site?
There were several women snipers in Russia with scores above 200. Irish women were always bad ass. "Up a long ladder and down a short rope. To hell with King Billy and GOD bless The Pope.

I seem to remember many young ladies from the ukraine who were quite bad ass in their own right. One was the inspiration for that forgettable tom cruise movie, that was basically a remake of ground hog day with guns. I forget the name, of course, but the girl was played by the always hot Emily Blunt.
