People with guns collection # 37

"A FAMILY HOBBY - ST. LOUIS: 'Women will never be as good in shooting as men,' says Mrs. Sallie Durbin who in 1968 defeated all male competitors and tied a world's record for women in the St. Louis state skeet shooting competition for .410 bore guns. She first saw shooting as an activity to divert her husband from go-kart racing. Sallie and her husband John hold several world skeet shooting records and recently held the world husband-wife team title. They praise the sport as a great family hobby." 2/4/1970
