The girls crowd around. A closer shot of two of the girls taking up arms and firing shots. C/U of woman wearing a coat trimmed with long white fur takes a shot.

    Intertitle reads: "No longer do "bangs" upset her nerve - " as a woman takes shots at moving balloons tied to a line. She bursts three balloons with four shots. "No cupid's arrow here - "Say it with lead" is more apt!" The women are assisted in their technique by willing males.

    "Yes, Adam will have to look out!" Four women take aim and fire. Balloons fly up in the air and the women shoot at them. They are very good shots.
