I think this is awesome.

 

This brings me to a question of how things work in the GM world though. If Ms beat GMs (consistently) at matches, are the Ms automatically branded as sandbaggers?

Pretty cool.

 

Not being a "fan" of Open, does she perform mostly among GMs at matches?

Jessie can shoot with the lower-end GMs. You can argue they shouldn't be GMs either, but you gotta do both.

The response on the FB page is fascinating.  Most people are good with it, but some are just dickheads.  Here's my advice for the whiners, worry less about how she's going to compare with the other GMs and worry more about how you will.

It can be done! Somebody alert the Feminist movement.

Does this mean we can stop giving awards for High Lady?

She was pretty close to GM % at Nationals, so makes sense.

76ish% at both limited and open nationals is close to GM? 

 

Either way, its still an impressive accomplishment, regardless of her actual match performance against the men.

Who gives a fuck?

Good for her, but I don't care if it's news just because she is a woman. I'm sure several other people made GM as well. It not like her tits got her GM. I'm surprised there arent more. I don't see how being a woman would make it any harder to shoot classifiers at a GM level than men.

Hammar,

 

Do you live under a rock?  Women in USPSA IS a BIG thing... big enough that the organization bought "Women of USPSA" (probably for some insane amount that could have been spent on self squadding program that wasn't so fucked up to operate).   They get several pages in Front Sight every issue to talk about their accomplishments. 

 

Her being the first female GM is a really big milestone for the sport and the women who shoot it.
