Excerpt:
Some women play tennis. Some women crochet. But, Judy Rhodes, founder of Divas - Women Outdoors Worldwide, prefers to load up a pistol and shoot at paper targets. Rhodes, a former country girl who grew up around firearms, says she was tired of watching women stay at home while their husbands went camping, fishing, and hunting.
 
"I decided that wasn't gonna happen anymore," Rhodes said. "We're gonna be out there shooting and hunting and being in our own blind. And now we are."
 
Rhodes founded the Divas with 16 of her closest girlfriends, and in the past 12 years the group has grown to a world-wide membership of 15,000. In addition to sharpshooting leagues, the group hosts adventure weekends and clinics on everything from AR-15 semi-automatic rifle shooting to dog training, bird watching, and map orienteering.
 
For two hours every Tuesday night the Cowtown Divas gather at The Shooting Gallery, an indoor firing range in Fort Worth, Texas, for jokes, fashion tips, and the chance to fire some very loud handguns at hot pink targets.

    Girl power.  Wish there was more of it.
    UtahIt doesn't cost me to be nice, but nothing gets you nothing and everything's got a little price.
