Olympic shooters trains with video games

Maybe you've heard of this trick before, but it sure as heck is new to me. Kim Rhode who's a shotgunner told it to this guy at shotgun life magazine. I don't know if it's a real magazine or a web site but its at http://www.shotgunlife.com She also told him that she wants more women and minorities involved with guns. Hmmm but i guess when you win 4 medals who say whatever the heck you want.

I'm not an olympic shooter yet I train with video games. I've beaten the last 2 Call of Duty's, so that should make me the best shooter alive.

A better link:
http://www.shotgunlife.com/Biographi...r-give-up.html

Did anyone even read the article?

She said they're good for hand-eye coordination, and there was nothing about defeating the Nazis or firing AK's sideways. The games she plays weren't even mentioned. For all we know, she could be referring to Pacman.
