It really is shooter stature. Especially with novice shooters that don't know any better.
A smaller person using a large anything they hold up will lean to balance the weight. It would definitely apply to cameras or anything you hold up Since the average woman is smaller than the average man, I could see this being a common observation with the gender gap at many ranges since there aren't typically as many women.
A male's center of gravity is around chest height (again body type dependent) a female's is around the hip area (also body type dependent).
WTB: multiautomatic ghost gun with a .30-caliber clip to disperse with 30 bullets within half a second. Must include shoulder thing that goes up.
