Friendly and Certified Firearms Training for Women Since 2011

August 20-23, 2024 • Grand Junction, CO

Snipercraft requires the development of marksmanship skills to a high degree of perfection. A sniper is trained in science, yet the range is a blank canvas on which she can simultaneously utilize tools, training, and creativity to create music on steel targets. The AG & AG Sniper School is your opportunity to combine science and art for long-distance target engagement!

Riflecraft​

Marksmanship, scope manipulation, ballistics, range estimation, and ring steel targets at a mile and beyond -- out to 2,003 yards!

Fieldcraft​

Snipercraft​

Learn concealment principles and gain a solid introduction to snipercraft. Get your ghillie suit ready for the next adventure!

About Sniper School

The A Girl & A Gun Sniper School is a Girls Getaway focusing on riflecraft and fieldcraft that gives members the opportunity to learn skills that are typically restricted to military and law enforcement, but in a fun, girl-friendly way. By understanding environmental factors and how bullet trajectories are affected by internal and external ballistics, you will be a more accurate shooter at all shooting disciplines. This event includes a combination of virtual learning and in-person exercises to get the most out of our time together. You will enjoy knowledgeable discussions, achieve zero, record DOPE, and quickly engage long-distance targets. This is not a bench-rest shooting class; this is a field conditions class and students must be prepared for moderate physical challenges.

The registration fee includes:

Instruction and Materials
Loaner Rifle & Scope, if needed
Range Fees
Catered Lunches
Swag & Gifts

Students are responsible for their own ammo (400rds), housing, and transportation. The closest airports are Grand Junction Regional Airport (GJT) (15min from range), Montrose Regional Airport (MTJ), (1hr drive), Denver International Airport (DEN) (4hrs drive).

This is an event for members of AG & AG. If you’re not a member, you can join today!
