AG & AG Publishes Innovative Shooting Journal for Women

AUSTIN, TX — A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League announced that it has published an innovative Shooting Journal for women shooters. While there is evidence that journaling has a positive impact on physical well-being, there are also practical applications for documenting shooting sessions. The AG & AG Shooting Journal thoughtfully combines both aspects to give women clarity to achieve their shooting and personal goals. With drills and documentation for new and advanced-level shooters to track shooting progress, it also has worksheets to log thoughts, emotions, and experiences as their empowerment and success from shooting translates into other areas of their lives. The Journal refers to this hybrid experience as “Tactical Foo Foo.”

“This Journal is unlike any other training tool in the shooting industry,” says Julianna Crowder, Founder of A Girl & A Gun. “We are very excited to continue to offer unique opportunities for women shooters to grow in the shooting sports as well as experience personal growth and empowerment.”

With a different monthly focus on important skills such as one-hand shooting, low-light, shooting from the ground, and others, shooters will learn more about themselves, their strengths, and their limitations. Each month they will receive drills and worksheets to add to the Journal, as well as information in the club’s weekly #TrainingTipTuesday emails to build upon the month’s theme.

Crowder continues, “As ladies shoot at AG & AG events, matches, or dry-fire practice, they can log their sessions on Tactical Foo Foo Session Worksheets and store them in their Journal binder. They’ll be able to clearly review their progress as they advance their shooting goals to higher levels.”

The AG & AG Shooting Journal is available to members of A Girl & A Gun as a perk of their $50 annual membership. Members can access it at

  1. It would be awesome to have an online journal (blog, void of a comment section?) open for girls to share their accomplishments as well. I’ll be journaling, for sure!

    1. Yes, Courtney! That’s why all of our Facebook groups for our chapters and events are closed. It’s a safe place for ladies to share their accomplishments without everyone on their newsfeed seeing their posts. That’s part of how we foster a supportive and collaborative community! While our posts can’t “go viral” if they’re trapped in closed groups, it’s more important for us to protect the sharing that women offer.

  2. Downloaded the journal – great idea! One suggestion…. use a lower resolution for the photos. Although beautiful, the files are very large and take a while for us that have a less than optimal connection to download.
    Looking forward to having a plan and a way to track my progress!

    1. Hi Tara, Yes, I know they’re HUGE and I’ve been trying to reduce the file size without reducing the print quality. Fortunately you only have to wait for the download once per month, I’ll keep trying to see if I can reduce the download time.

  3. This journal is awesome. Really going to try to stick to it. I’ve been told to keep a journal of my shooting for the past couple years and I never did it. I totally understand how it can help for improvement, so really want to do it. Thanks for preparing the journal and all that you do! :-)

  4. I’m logged in to my account but I’m not given the option to download journal. It keeps me in a loop to the login page and then back to journal description. What am I doing wrong. I want to save it as a PDF file on a Mac.
