Chapter Facilitators​

Across the United States, our Chapter Facilitators lead A Girl & A Gun events at local ranges that host our program. There are several women’s shooting organizations, but the AG & AG Leadership Team is the reason this league is different:

Our Facilitators are all Certified Instructors. This is important because members can be assured that all events are run by someone who has made an investment in her training by attending professional classes to learn safe gun handling and accuracy drills. This is more than a fun group; we have a mission to ensure that our members learn correct techniques while having fun.

Our Facilitators are all women. We love spending time with our husbands, boyfriends, sons, and other guy friends at the range; however, we take time to get away and enjoy girl talk, too! This girl-friendly environment has a different feel to it — and can often be less intimidating to new members. We share tips about posture, grip, and maneuverability that are all unique to a woman’s physical characteristics. While there are wonderful male instructors, it can greatly benefit women to learn from other women.

Our Facilitators are “everyday” women. We are not pin-up models, hard-core athletes, or tactical soldiers. We are normal women who enjoy trying new things and feeling empowered. We welcome women of all ages and abilities — from the fitness pros to the cuddly grandmas — who want to improve self-defense skills and try a competitive match. Anyone can do what we do, and we cheer for each other along the way! Our Facilitators help women achieve their goals every day.
