Eldest (11 y.o. daughter) beat two boys her age in a 4-H .22 silhouette match.....

The 4-H teaching guide I have teaches that the rifle shoud rest upon either bone or stretched muscles/tendons- flexed muscles tire and produce shaking. I saw a lot of kids in the same stance pictured in that link....

I believe the current DC high school girl's shooting activities are somewhat more individually based. And instead of Winchester single shot muskets, they use Lorcin and Raven products.

Those are Savage Model 1919 rifles, competitor to the ultimately triumphant and magnificent Winchester Model 52.
