Friendly and Certified Firearms Training for Women Since 2011

Leadership Development​

A Girl & A Gun makes the distinction to not only welcome new shooters, but to have qualified leaders who can train them to be safe gun owners, skilled marksman, and competitive shooters. The organization developed this program to help Facilitators and A-Team meet the unique needs of AG & AG members. The AG & AG Leadership Development Program provides training on 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 Leadership Development events provide consistent and recurring training for the AG & AG leadership team.

On-Demand Training

We’re bringing training to you! The AG & AG video library has leader-specific training courses to help you with a variety of tasks. From chapter management to instructor development, the library is a quality resource for our leaders.

In addition, AG & AG hosts a monthly Facilitator Forum with announcements and information to help you grow your chapter and/or your instructor business. All recordings are available in the library.
