A Girl and A Gun – Onalaska Chapter – is entering it’s third year at the Firearms Academy of Seattle, Inc.. This women’s group is part of a national organization that has a well-organized national headquarters behind it. Our ladies look forward to attending the National Training Conference every year in Texas.
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. We have activities that focus on personal defense, competition, marksmanship, handgun, rifle, and shotgun.
You may recognize the leadership as already established FAS instructors:Jennie Van Tuyl, Diane Walls, and Melissa DeYoung
Over the last year many of our ladies made great progress in the Winchester Marksmanship program for pistol. We have started the Winchester Marksmanship program for Tactical Rifle. We have learned about IDPA basics, how to shoot many different rifle types, how to safely holster and draw a gun, and had a lot of fun doing it. Several of our ladies have been able to join all lady squads at national and world IDPA events.

This is our half-day clinics where we focus on a topic and get an idea of what it is about so we are better prepared when taking classes. We have had introduction to shooting fundamentals, rifle shooting, shotgun shooting, IDPA (International Defensive Pistol Association), marksmanship, and many more topics.
