August was on fire! The scorching temps didn’t keep our girls from training or competing between their family vacations and back-to-school activities: We trained 1,900+ women in the month of August! We hosted 350 events and membership was up 16% compared to last year! Our members celebrated National Shooting Sports Month with enthusiasm! Here are some of our highlights.
June 2023 was jam-packed with adventure and excitement! We hosted our inaugural DRIFT Academy, which was amazing and has everyone eager for information about the next one (hint: there will be 2 in 2024)! Attendance at our chapter events nationwide grew 19% with 1,877 women turning to AG & AG for training this month. Our member engagement continued to increase, and our chapters have been having a lot of summer fun at the range.
A caravan of white Ford Crown Vics sped around a racetrack, deploying evasive techniques, PIT maneuvers, and off-road recoveries. The drivers inside were not law enforcement, executive protection, or military operators: they were suburban moms and grandmas, who wanted to master defensive skills to keep themselves and their families safe.
A Girl & A Gun’s DRIFT (Dynamic Real-world Immersive Firearms Training) Academy took place on June 6 – 8, 2023 at the Virginia International Raceway. It was the first training course of its kind that addressed all aspects of vehicle defense for women.
In May 2023, A Girl & A Gun was soaring high after experiencing an overwhelmingly successful National Conference! Our chapters continued to grow — 1,430 attendees this month, which is 17% growth compared to last May. Here are some of the highlights for the past 30 days in A Girl & A Gun Nation.
As you know, the motto of A Girl & A Gun is “It’s More Than Shooting.” Though our national Giving Back program, we support several causes important to our community. One of those causes is pediatric brain cancer, and so as a league we observe Brain Cancer awareness month in May.
If you want to know the best handguns and gear for women, look to see what women are choosing to train with and carry. Recently A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League (AG & AG) hosted its 11th Annual National Conference, AMPLIFY 2023. Participants included 600 members representing 123 AG & AG chapters from 40 different states. The women were able to choose from among 400 training classes run by 102 of the nation’s top firearms educators. Training classes ran over 3 days, with an additional 2 days of lectures and leadership development. Here are the most popular handguns brought by women who attended the Conference.
