People with guns collection # 6 - Originally posted Saturday, October 4, 2008

From my own personal collection!"Members of the 'Guardettes' at the Hudson Motor Company plant in Detroit congratulate Guardette Virginia Westlauf on her aim with a revolver, as shown by bullseyes in target. Other guardettes are her sister, Lucille, and Kathleen Villerot. And it was Guardette Westlauf's first try at revolver shooting." October 4th 1942

Great old photo of some young women doing their part for the war effort while having fun shooting too, 66 years ago today!

I would also like to take a moment here to remind everyone of that old safety adage about keeping your finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire. True now, and true then too!
