Christine Kaporch, 30, says a fellow instructor at the FBI Academy, "could shoot a snake between the eyes." The first female on the faculty of the academy in Quantico, Va., she teaches recruits firearms, fingerprinting and fitness on a mean Marine-style obstacle course. Born in Providence, Kaporch herself joined the Marines right out of the U of Miami but got restless after three years of administrative duties. "By then I knew how to deal with a men's organization," she explains, "and I'd always been attracted by the FBI mystique." So in 1973 she became the 20th woman agent (of 8,000 agents, there are now 91 females with 50 more in training). Posted first to Newark, she discovered criminals can be gents ("Honey, you can arrest me anytime," said one) and her bureau buddies chauvinists ("Ladies first," her male partner joshed as they edged into a Newark ghetto stakeout). She is married to Kevin Kaporch, 27, a desk-bound FBI program analyst who gets whupped by her in racquet ball and admits: "I could no more do some of the things she does than the man in the moon." As Christine puts it, "Kevin's a lover, not a fighter, and that I take seriously." Sharpshooter Kaporch is equally earnest about her ultimate target in the FBI. "I shouldn't say this," she says, "but I want to be Director."
