For seventeen years Annie Oakley was the Wild West Show’s star attraction with her marvelous shooting feats.
At 90 feet Annie could shoot a dime tossed in midair.
In one day with a .22 rifle she shot 4,472 of 5,000 glass balls tossed in midair.
With the thin edge of a playing card facing her at 90 feet,
Annie could hit the card and puncture it with with five or six more shots as it settled to the ground.
