A Girl And A Gun is a brand new women's group forming at the Firearms Academy of Seattle, Inc.. It is a national organization that has a large presence on Facebook and has a well organized national headquarters behind it.

A Girl and A Gun Women's Shooting League is an organization 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.

There are 63 chapters in 22 states and we are excited to be joining this group of women. You may recognize the leadership as already established FAS instructors:
Facilitator: Jennie Van Tuyl
Assisting: Diane Walls, Melissa DeYoung and Kathy Jackson

When students register for a Firearms Academy class they are sent a confirmation letter which includes a detailed map to the range, and if taking a two day class, a list of local hotels. The range facility is not open to the public.

Few firearms students manage to fit regular, meaningful practice into their busy lives. Competitive shooting is a great way to fill that void, because a one day match blends fun, social time with other shooters, and the invaluable opportunity to practice handgunning skills relevant to self-defense use of the gun.

The premier shooting sport for competition with practical personal defense firearms is the International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA). In 2011, the Firearms Academy of Seattle, Inc. reactivated its IDPA club, and is once again hosting IDPA matches. Matches at F.A.S. have the unique features of low-light in daylight hours, moving target arrays and more.

Are you new to IPDA?  That’s great, come out and experience an IDPA match.  New shooters will be put in a squad with an experienced Safety Officer, who will give the group a new shooter orientation, then take the squad through the match, explaining the in’s and out’s of shooting the match and make sure your first match is an enjoyable experience.  NOTE:  After the first match, shooters must join IDPA to continue to participate in matches.  We support this requirement, because in order to get classified, one must be a member, and IDPA survives financially due to membership dues.

To learn more about IDPA, visit the IDPA web site at http://www.idpa.com/.
