From Our Members
THANK YOU is not enough for the staff that puts this all together! My love and respect for AG & AG is so strong. Events like this are so needed for us to continue to learn and grow in this sport and the quality of instruction that is put together is amazing. Job well done HQ for another year of greatness.
Being a first timer, I was so impressed with the organizational skill of the coordinators for this conference – everything – and I mean everything for me went off without a hitch – it was all so purrfect in every way. I learned so much, I enjoyed myself, I got to meet new women who shoot, and shoot for a purpose… it was just FANTASTIC!
I can’t think of one BEST part of conference… this was one of the highlights of my life! Everything in all was outstanding! I was so amazed at the sisterhood and instant friendships. There was not one rude person in this group.
I loved meeting you absolutely amazing gals, and the phenomenal instructors. Omg & AERIAL GUNNERY!!! Just everything was really great – but you gals and the instructors were the icing on the cake.
The sisterhood…the compassion and understanding of everyone. The instruction is outstanding. This is an amazing event at an amazing price. Thank you!!
I was blown away at the quality of instruction-maybe not everyone was a perfect instructor but overall it was really good. You just can’t beat that for the price.
This was my first AG & AG Conference, so I didn’t know what to expect. My local chapter had dissolved several months before conference, but I had such a great experience. Such a welcoming group, top notch instructors. Already looking forward to next year!
OH how can I even put it in words???? EVERYTHING WAS THE BEST! Truly not disappointed in anything. It was amazing, so much education. That old saying, “you don’t know what you don’t know until you know it” applied every step I took. Maybe in a couple of weeks I can come up with a BEST ~~~ I loved the demos, I love the camaraderie and meeting so, so many ladies, and I loved learning. Can we make it longer? LOL
It was extremely gratifying to see a tremendous amount of support for the badge that I’m very proud to put on every day to protect and serve my community. Every day, in every city and town across the country, police officers are performing vital services that help make their communities safer. Being afforded stellar training like this aids us in carrying out our mission with honor and integrity.
Great group of women. Support and comradery at every turn. Ladies are there to help and explain any questions and insecurities. As a new shooter I have met new friends and gained confidence since joining the group. Monthly meetings and training at neighbor ranges give plenty of practice and email tips and advice are great and very informative.
“The friendship bonds and camaraderie I made this week will stay with me forever. The incredible generosity of the event sponsors and the gracious efforts by A Girl & A Gun was awe inspiring.”
No where will you get the training, exposure and trigger time for the money as you do at this conference. Just an outstanding job!!! Great selection of door prizes!! Can’t recommend this conference enough!! Being in Oklahoma, we have to figure out a way to get more of our gals committed to coming. Thank you both and your team for all you do. I heard so many positive comments about the whole experience. Gear Check!! Checking in!! Liked the meals & shirt included in the price!
There is nowhere else on Earth where someone could get the caliber of training that I received. My head is still boggled. I don’t know how you guys manage to make conference better and better every year, but God Bless both of you for all your hard work!
I love this group, everyone is so dedicated, so helpful, leadership is so knowledgeable, talented, pleasant and friendly! You’ll never find a more welcoming, friendly, talented group of women! The mere fact that it’s only women adds to the benefits and the bonding experience. I don’t usually give reviews, but this group deserves it!! Definitely TOP rating!
I loved the hands on training that focused on what the group needed to work on and accomplish. This is the only training I have attended that asks the student what they want out of their training and tailors the courses to meet those needs. The environment is positive and empowering. It was an amazing experience and the ladies I met were awesome.
For me, it’s the education, the building of confidence, and the appreciation of the AG&AG organization. I always return home with a greater appreciation of my facilitator and with a deeper pride of being part of the league.
Best organization there is for ladies in the country to learn about firearms for self defense and the shooting sports!
The best part of conference was getting to know so many great people and learning so much information that would most likely take years to learn, all in a 4 day time span at a great location with so many nice people. Thanks Julianna and Robyn for everything you do to give us the best experiences of our lives!
This is a great organization! I joined last year and in addition to learning more about shooting, I’ve made some really great friends. This organization helps you learn, compete and stay abreast of gun laws in your own state. There are great training seminars and opportunities each month to enhance personal skills. The camaraderie in this organization is exceptional and their sponsors are the best place to shop for your shooting gear. Thank you, AG & AG, for all the great experiences I’ve had.
It’s More Than Shooting
While our mission is to educate women on safe and accurate shooting, our organization is about so much more than shooting! It’s about Confidence, Empowerment, Support, Friendships, Knowledge, Fun, Self-Reliance, and so much more. Everyday we witness the transformation of women who set out to learn how to shoot and in the process discover a confidence in themselves that improves all areas of their lives. Whether you’re interested in competition, concealed carry, home defense, the safe storage of guns in the home, or you just want to get out of the house and try something new, please join us at an upcoming event.

Help us break barriers for women and girls in shooting sports.
