The obvious coupled with not effectively using cover, sticking her elbow out there as far as possible to make a wider target, and, well, she's from Texas, and I see four strikes against her. ;)

I also noticed the elbow and lack of using the big black and white thing for cover. I can't count being Texan against anyone though!

Did any of you notice that her lip gloss and nail polish didn't match either?  Ok, I made that up to see who wasn't paying attention...

ok, I will bite.  I have had no training, but am very curious about what is wrong here.  Help a girl out?
