God Save the Queen

On the other hand, maybe she doesn't need the help. Here's a picture of Her Majesty firing a rifle during a 1993 visit to the National Shooting Centre in Surrey. Rule Britannia!

UPDATE: I wonder if Her Majesty has the crosshairs sighted on a picture of Pat Martin?

Three things awesome!
Did not know Her Majesty was left handed.
God Save The Queen.

And don't forget the her mother took shooting lessons during WW II so she could defend herself.

Actually, the L85 is a bullpup design, so the trigger hand goes forward; they also clamped the rifle in a rest so she could do this.
