The Quarterly Match is a nationwide competition among members of A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League. Facilitated during a regularly scheduled event, such as a Girl’s Night Out, shooters can 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 in a casual, familiar environment.

The goal of the Quarterly Match is to welcome new competitors to participate alongside experienced shooters. The Star Level awards recognize the league’s top performers. A member becomes an All Star when she places 1st Overall a second time within four consecutive matches. The All Stars are rewarded for their performance and rising stars get a chance at the pots, too!
