Annie Oakley (Phoebe Ann Mosey 8/13/1860 – 11/3/31926) was an American sharpshooter & exhibition shooter. Oakley starred in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show, the first American female superstar. Using a .22 caliber rifle, at 90 ft Oakley reputedly could split a playing card edge-on & put 5 or 6 more holes in it before it touched the ground.
