Friendly and Certified Firearms Training for Women Since 2011

Do I Just Show Up?

Yes! Find a chapter near you, see the calendar of upcoming events, and just show up! You can join the chapter’s Facebook group and/or email the Facilitator first if that would make you more comfortable.

Do I Have to Be a Member to Participate?

No, you are not required to be a member for your first couple of visits to most AG & AG events, including Girl’s Night Out, “T” Time, Breakfast & Bullets, and various clinics. Come check us out! We encourage you to officially register as a member as soon as you are able. In most cases, members pay lower range fees and receive discounts from reputable vendors on range equipment and ammunition. Members also wear personalized name tags to help everyone learn names and build our community.

There are some AG & AG events that do require membership, such as competition matches for pistol, rifle and/or shotgun. Registration for our National Conference and Girl’s Getaways is also reserved for members.

Can I Bring a Friend?

Yes! Bring your girlfriends to the range; however, we are a women’s shooting club and strongly encourage you to leave the guys at home! We love spending time with our husbands, boyfriends, sons, and other guy friends at the range; however, we take time to get away and enjoy girl talk, too! This girl-friendly environment has a different feel to it — and can often be less intimidating to new members. We share tips about posture, grip, and maneuverability that are all unique to a woman’s physical characteristics. While there are wonderful male instructors, it can greatly benefit women to learn from other women.

Any woman who is 18 years of age or older is welcome to attend. Any girl under the age of 17 years old must be accompanied by a guardian.

Do I Need a Gun to Participate?

All kinds of guns are welcome.  Because of the different facilities we use, we can accommodate pistols, rifles and shotguns at most of our events (please check with your facilitator and/or range facility for restricted firearms).

If you don’t own a gun… don’t worry!  Each facilitator tries to have a selection of firearms available for you to use in .380, 9mm, .40 or .45ACP (and rifles and shotguns when appropriate), but it will depend on what is available in each chapter.  It is always a good idea to call your facilitator and ask!  Several chapters are ranges that have a rental gun program.  You will be required to purchase the ammunition from the range if you participate in their rental program.

Of course if you own your own firearms, bring ’em out.  If you would like to share what you have and let others try out your gun(s) that would be very kind of you, but not a requirement.

What Ammo Do I Need and How Much?

It is up to you how much you want to shoot.  Some ladies are happy with plinking a few rounds; others can go through 3 boxes in no time flat.  Regardless if you are shooting your own guns or looking to try out something different, it is preferred that you bring your ammunition with you.  Some facilitators do try to have extra ammunition on hand for sale in various calibers when but be prepared to purchase ammo at the range or at a sporting goods store prior to arriving to the event.

Our events primarily focus on pistol shooting.  Each caliber of handgun ammunition varies in price; refer to the Ammunition Guide for what you can expect to spend at local sporting goods stores.

What Does It Cost?
