Growing ranks of female Law Shield members are looking for gender-specific training and sisterhood-building opportunities, and one group worth looking into is A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League (AG & AG).
A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League is a club by women shooters for women shooters. The league breaks barriers for women and girls in pistol, rifle, and shotgun sports by welcoming beginners to learn the basics of safe and accurate shooting and providing experienced shooters with advanced-level opportunities.
The group recently hosted the first Girl’s Getaway Presented by Remington from October 10-12, 2014, at the NRA Whittington Center. Twenty-five members from around the country gathered for the retreat event.
Expert firearms instructors were on site to provide one-on-one training for the participants. Rocky Mountain 3-Gun Match Director Denise Johnson created a natural terrain 3-gun course, while Olympic champion Brian Burrows made use of the Hakenjos Shooting Center to instruct the women in trap and sporting clays. Remington Senior Product Specialist Ashley Kerr, along with instructor John Crowder, ensured that every shooter successfully hit targets out to 550-735 yards on the rifle range.
AG & AG Founder Julianna Crowder said, “A Girl & A Gun has a mission, vision, and purpose to bring women into shooting sports and build a sisterhood of support and encouragement. This weekend brought our intentions to life.”
The next Girl’s Getaway will be February 1-3, 2015, at Shooter’s World in Tampa, Florida. The group is headquartered in Cedar Park, Texas.
