Yes, it’s a real term. Yes, it’s sexist. Yes, in my experience, it’s correct – women, especially ones with large chests, tend to lean back farther than men. This is not to say that men do not do the same. They do – but regardless of gender, all shooters should stand up straight, and preferably lean forward. I’ve seen even seasoned shooters lean back, usually when firing an unfamiliar weapon. Just takes practice to get over it.

So much Chick Lean in this video. I’m not saying all women do it – Mel knows better, and shoots in an aggressive stance. But this is exactly what I mean.
