    Well since the question was already answered and you threw my name out there, I feel obligated to throw in some more info :x:. From 1999 to 2004 (I think it was 99-04, might have been different years), 84% of girls earned the pizza box and only 2% shot expert. I'm not sure what the statistic for males in boot camp is though, but I would ASSUME that overall the men qualified better than the women.

    Well I don't think any other branch has to qualify over 300 yards, so yeah. If the Marines had to only qualify at 250 yards, every Marine would be shooting expert.
