Next Training Event

Training hours earned. Lodging, meals, range fees, training supplies, ammunition, and instructor fees, are covered; officers need to provide their own travel/transportation to/from the event.

Nominate a Deserving Officer

The goal of AG & AG’s BTWB program is to provide quality firearms training to deserving female LEOs. The entire event is funded by contributions from generous sponsors and AG & AG chapters that want to #giveback. Officers even receive gifts and swag for attending!

Officers will receive TCOLE hours for their training time. Officers outside of Texas will receive documentation that can be submitting to the appropriate agency in order to log training hours.

About the Program

In 2016 we were seeing an uptick in female LEOs at our competitive matches and events. These ladies were seeking additional trigger time and training that they were not getting from their departments. We sent a nationwide survey to female LEOs not assigned to tactical units, and learned that 63% of the respondents’ agencies did not offer mandatory firearms training post-academy and only 66% of the officers were required to annually qualify on their duty guns. Shockingly 89% of the responsdents have not attended any outside firearms training in the last 5 years!

With the increased violence towards law enforcement and lack of mandatory firearms training provided to them, A Girl & A Gun stepped up to provide training to keep LEOs safe. We started a fundraiser of our BTWB tshirts and asked our sponsors and LE instructors to get on board. We have been able to offer this event for the past several years and it has become an invaluable opportunity to the women who attend. In addition to the firearms training, defensive tactics, verbal judo and communication skills, low-light techniques, and other training that we offer, officers are able to network with other women from around the country, who share their passion for service. The AG & AG culture ensures that friendships grow strong and women remain a part of a valued sisterhood.


Your distinguished dedication and support to our law enforcement will not only allow these well-deserving women an opportunity of a lifetime, but will instill confidence and encouragement that your company stands behind them.
