I know that the whole "chicks with guns" thing might seem like a recent American phenomenon (to some) but it appears that tool-using has always been a fairly international and non-gender specific pursuit.

Yeah, I guess Women have just as much right to be Terrorists, Communists, Iranian Revolutionaries and Crooks as Men do. Out of all the photos in the LIFE archives, don't you just LOVE what the Editor chose to use? Sigh!

I thought this gallery was better, at least, than LIFE's "Beautiful Burqas"

Besides the .22s which are really a one-size-fits-all of fun, my Sister-in-law preferred my .45, and my .357 Magnum. So-called "Man Guns".

Humans are tool users! Imagine that! :)

And by and large use them MUCH better than the men! :-0

I see they couldn't resist adding the cast of "Girls With Guns".

I guess it's some Pavlovian response acquired in J-school...
