If you head to the range, stand back and watch various shooters, you can notice some really interesting behavior. One such item I've seen at many ranges, is the failure to expect accuracy. Talented bolt action shooters who can drill 1/2 MOA groups regularly will pick up a modern sporting rifle (such as an Ar15) and totally bail on their expectations. Instead of prone or at the bench, all of the sudden they're standing with poor chicken wing form, blasting rapidly and then decrying the rifle as inaccurate. This isn't a failure of the rifle, it is a failure of the squishy matter between the operator’s ears.

Greek gods enjoyed hunting as much as their worshippers did, which sometimes brought them into conflict with disastrous consequences for the mortals. Although, with few exceptions, hunting was almost exclusively a male pursuit, the deity that presided over the hunt was the goddess Artemis. Her other responsibilities included wild animals, forests and hills, the moon, archery, little children, suckling animals and childbirth.
