Howell’s Chapter of A Girl & A Gun

A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League!

A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League (AG & AG) is a shooting club established by women shooters for women shooters. AG & AG events are intended to be fun, social gatherings where women can come together for support, encouragement, ask questions in a safe and nonjudgmental environment, improve on their marksmanship, and bond together in the shooting community.


Help us break barriers for women and girls in shooting sports!

Learn more about what makes A Girl and A Gun the nations leading women’s shooting organization.


What makes us different?

All AG & AG events are supervised by female Certified Firearms Instructors. All facilitators are women who can “speak girl” and provide techniques and tips for female shooters. Our goal is to empower, educate, and have fun at the range. AG & AG events have been successful stepping stones for thousands of women. At our events and through articles and information, we provide:

  • Basics of safe gun handling
  • Range etiquette
  • Proper grip techniques
  • Stance for accurate shooting
  • Trigger control and follow through
  • Sight picture and sight alignment



You will be joining thousands of women nationwide who share a passion for firearms. Annual membership fee is $50 and you get SO MUCH more in Howell’s Discounts, AG&AG partner discounts, special events and more!


It’s More Than Shooting

While our mission is to educate women on safe and accurate shooting, our organization is about so much more than shooting! It’s about empowerment, support, friendships, fun, self-reliance, and so much more. Everyday we witness the transformation of women who set out to learn how to shoot and in the process discover a confidence in themselves that improves all areas of their lives. Whether you’re interested in competition, concealed carry, home defense, the safe storage of guns in the home, or you just want to get out of the house and try something new, please join us at an upcoming event.
