Whether you want to participate in a local group or are looking for more opportunities nationwide, AG & AG has something for everyone! Join us at an upcoming event!
The AG & AG National Conference is the event of the year! We host 350+ women shooters in the beautiful Texas Hill Country each year. With dozens of pistol and carbine bays, as well as natural terrain 3-gun stages and long-range bays, members participate in defensive, competitive, and recreational shooting sessions. We also have classrooms for simulated-fire, interactive demonstrations, and lecture sessions on a variety of topics.
3-Gun UniversityTM is a training match. Participants attend training on fundamentals needed to succeed in 3 gun, and then compete in a stages or a match to put their skills to use. The Match Director creates a fun and challenging event that will take competitors through modular training to hone their skills for success in the training match, but more importantly long-term participation in the sport.
The Fall Festival includes two major matches in one amazing weekend! The Ladies’ Multigun Championship is a true multigun experience over 2 days with 8 stages in square bays, structures, and natural terrain throughout the Park Mammoth property. The Ladies’ USPSA Handgun Championship is a 8-stage pistol match. There are also demos, social activities, clinics, and a 3-Gun University experience for training and fun!
The Girl’s Getaway Program provides casual destination events for shooting and camaraderie. Planned at different venues across the country, the events allow AG & AG members from various chapters to share new experiences and meet new friends.
Our chapters provide opportunities for ladies to get together for a time out of the house and have some fun shooting guns and making new friends. New shooters are always welcome and experience shooters are always appreciated. Chapter events may be informal gatherings, such as Girl’s Night Out, or clinics that have a structured activity or curriculum. Find a chapter >>
The Quarterly Match is a nationwide competition among AG & AG members that occurs during a regularly scheduled chapter event. Facilitated in a casual, familiar environment, shooters are able to experience a competitive atmosphere: understanding the course of fire, match commands, operation of the shot timer, and scoring. The match allows new shooters to overcome mental barriers to participating in competitive shooting and gives experienced shooters the ability to test their skills among friends. Winners of the match receive cash prizes based on the number of participants, and of course, bragging rights among the chapters.
The AG & AG Facilitator Development Program provides training for the unique lifecycle of an AG & AG member: getting new women to the range and putting guns in their hands for the first time, showing them the basics of marksmanship and introducing range etiquette, cultivating skills and involvement, and introducing shooting sports and competition for long-term participation. AG & AG Facilitator Development events provide training for the AG & AG leadership team.
With the increasing violence towards law enforcement and lack of mandatory firearms training provided to them, A Girl & A Gun is stepping up to keep our law enforcement officers safe. In a recent survey to local female law enforcement officers not assigned to tactical units, 63% of the respondents’ agencies do not offer mandatory firearms training post-academy. Eight-nine (89%) percent have not attended any outside firearms training within the last five (5) years. We started a “Women in Blue” Scholarship Fund in July 2016 to fund training for female LEOs. AG & AG hosts training events for our female LEOs and wives of LEOs because their lives face uncertain dangers and we want to help them be prepared.
The D.C. Project is a nonpartisan initiative among 50 women from 50 states to establish relationships with their legislators, and reveal the faces and stories of firearms owners and 2nd Amendment supporters. Participants aim to highlight the diversity of gun owners and the rising female demographic; encourage the preservation of America’s gun culture, from conservation and commerce to competitive sports, hunting, and self-defense; and give legislators an opportunity to meet a real gun owner and 2A supporter and have a resource for information or education on firearms-related topics.
The Competitive Edge Program provides opportunities for women to network at major matches or gather on ladies-only squads around the country. Participants are able to learn from mentors and compete among friends.
