1Q2021 Match Winners Announced

AUSTIN, TX — A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League (AG & AG) proudly announces the winners of the 2021 1st Quarter League Match. Congratulations to all who participated! This quarter marked a new record: 153 total competitors participated in the match!

The Quarterly Match is a nationwide competition among members of A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League. Facilitated during a regularly scheduled event, such as a Girl’s Night Out, shooters are able to experience a competitive atmosphere: understanding the course of fire, match commands, operation of the shot timer, and scoring. The match allows new shooters to overcome mental barriers to participating in competitive shooting and gives experienced shooters the ability to test their skills in a casual, familiar environment. Winners of the match receive cash prizes based on the number of participants, and of course, bragging rights among the chapters.

The goal of the Quarterly Match is to keep focus on bringing new shooters into the match and providing them incentive to improve while maintaining interest for experienced shooters to participate. The introduction of performance level prizes (Star Levels) provides members the opportunity to set S.M.A.R.T. (Specific-Measurable-Achievable-Realistic-Timely) goals which will help them grow in their personal shooting journey.
