    crack shot

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to give me a leg up with the interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    One day a mad dog turns up on their street, and Atticus reluctantly shoots it. The kids are surprised to learn that their father is a crack shot, since he’s never told them anything about it.

    crack = first-rate; excellent

    crack shot = crack marksman

    Thanks for your efforts.
