Some of you girls already know that I am the facilitator of A Girl & A Gun’s chapter in Cumming, GA. Cumming was the 1st GA chapter of AGAG and Marietta, GA will be opening soon.
I have a great passion for introducing women to “gun world” and for me AGAG was a perfect fit. It is truly a sisterhood. I have sisters all over the US and in the United Kingdom and Argentina (opening soon). These are women of extremely high caliber (no pun intended) and some of the most kind and compasionate people I have ever had the good fortune to call friends. I can’t say enough about the quality of women in this organization.
“A Girl and A Gun Women’s Shooting League is a Ladies Only Organization established by women shooters for women shooters for pistol, rifle and shotgun sports! The league is designed to take beginners to whatever skill level they wish to achieve, and provide experienced shooters with more opportunities. The objective of some is to improve their skill levels for target and/or competitive shooting. Others, while wanting to improve their skills, also are interested in the aspects of self-defense.” From the AGAG website.
During the week of March 20th, I and 3 other of my girls here in GA traveled to the 1st Annual AGAG Training Conference in Waco, TX. It was a life changing experience for me. I learned so much and found that I want to learn so much more and then share it with other women. And spending 3 days at Tiger Valley was just cool. :cool: Did I mention I got to shoot a full-auto AR. :D
Some of the most important highlights for me include:
- Spending an entire day in an Instructor Development Course taught by Kathy Jackson (The Cornered Cat) – she is phenomenal. I learned more about how to teach women to shoot in those 8 hours than anytime in my (short) instructor career.
- Acting as RSO for Stella of Stellar Tactical – incredible defensive/self protection instructor.
- And just being in a room with 150 women who have a passion for the shooting sports. Definitely in my top 10 of all time best experiences.
I can’t say enough about AGAG. Becoming a member and then a facilitator has changed my life in SO many positive ways. I would like to encourage each of you to find a chapter near you or become an associate member if there isn’t one near you. (Associate members get most of the same benefits as full members.) Who knows, you may just want to start your own chapter like I did. :)
Please let me know if you would like to know more or I can answer any questions. I love AGAG and the Glock Forum Women!!!! :)
P.S. Glock Forum’s vendor gun-girl is a AGAG member and I got to see ALL of her stuff at the conference – it was BEAUTIFUL. Y’all give her some love. :D
