About National Conference

The AG & AG National Conference is the nation’s most notorious firearms event for women. AG & AG members from all corners of the country gather in one place to train with best instructors. You can enjoy modular training of a variety of disciplines over several days. In other words, you can jump into a new sport, topic, or platform while you have the best instructors and loaner gear to see what you can learn! For new shooters, you’ll gain confidence and skills. For experienced shooters, you’ll be coached to the next level!

Although there are some pre-Conference activities (Leadership Day and Early Bird Lecture Day), Conference officially starts on Thursday. Meet our sponsors, shoot the demo guns, shop the vendors, go through Gear Check, and then meet at 5pm MT for the official Welcome! Training Days are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, each starting with a Safety Brief. Don’t miss the Safety Briefs — if your name is drawn from the red bag, you must be present to win!
In February, registered participants receive the official Conference Catalog that lists all of the instructors, course descriptions, bonus activities, social gatherings, round counts, gear requirements, maps, agendas, and more! In March, participants have assigned times to build schedules. Classes fill on a first-come, first-served basis, but all of the classes are amazing! Often someone’s least desired class ends up being her favorite of the weekend!
For live-fire training, we limit the firing line to 5-18 students, depending on the skills being addressed. We also assign multiple instructors and Range Safety Officers to ensure all classes have adequate supervision and safety protocols. Live-fire space is limited to 37 areas (approximately 300 participants at a time), so participants are encouraged to also take advantage of the 26 field classrooms offering dry-fire, hands-on discussions, lectures, workshops, and other training sessions (approximately 300 participants at a time).

The $400 cost gives you 6-12 training sessions, low instructor:student ratio, swag bags, prizes, gun giveaway drawings, lunches on training days, an exclusive event tshirt, demo day, camaraderie, and fun and friendship to last a lifetime!

Transportation, lodging, ammo, most meals, and bonus activities are the responsibility of the participant. Most women budget $2,000 for the trip.

Yes, National Conference is for women who are active members of A Girl & A Gun.

No, we have had attendees who have had a recent surgery and need to take it easy as well as pregnant and nursing mothers who want to avoid lead exposure. Many women opt for dry-fire clinics and lectures the entire weekend. They learn so much and are always glad they came!

Yes! you will receive emails with tips, checklists, videos, and information to make sure you have the right equipment, knowledge, mindset, and attitude to have an incredible time at Conference! You may worry that you’ll be wandering around lost, but you’ll have a gameplan, and 1,000 friends who will guide you where you need to be.

We have several room blocks at area hotels, but we don’t publish them for security reasons. Participants will receive that information after registration.

After you make your training schedule in March, you’ll know exactly how much ammo (and what calibers) to bring. You can pre-purchase ammo in advance and pick it up at Check In.

Cancellations and Refunds Life happens and sometimes last-minute situations arise that can prevent you from attending; however, as time goes on, vendors and service providers have been paid. Therefore, a $50 administrative fee will be charged for any cancellation before 12/31/2022. Beginning 1/1/2023, 50% refunds will be issued. After 3/15/2023, there will be no refunds for event registration fees, bonus sessions, or event-related merchandise if you discover that you are unable to attend. In order to ensure that each participant creates her training schedule in the order she registered, Conference tickets may not be transferred. Refunds will be applied per the policy, and then another member can purchase the available ticket.
