If you're a woman who is interested in firearms and/or who would like to learn how to properly handle a gun then please come hang with us.
We'll discuss the basics of firearm safety, how to shoot a gun and schedule monthly outings to some local indoor and outdoor shooting ranges and gun shows. We're a group of strong-minded, intelligent women who enjoy shooting handguns and long guns (i.e., rifles) and who want to share our passion for shooting with other safety-oriented, curious women. We welcome women with lots, some or no experience whatsoever.
Don't be fooled - despite our catchy name, this is a serious, safety-oriented group.
Please note: At the request of the group members, this is a women-only group
STATEMENT OF POLICY: Girls With Guns (GWG) is a group of volunteer participants, including the co-moderators. We donate our time, energy, knowledge and resources – including monetary – to teach gun safety and shooting skills to women in our local, Bay Area community. Regardless of our personal viewpoints, the co-Moderators of GWG abide by the laws of the State of California, including laws governing handgun ownership, sale, transport and transfer. In order to protect the on-going integrity and operation of GWG, and for the safety of both the co-Moderators and our members, we require that participants at GWG activities respect and comply with all laws of the State of California. Please be advised that statements in contravention of the laws of the State of California, including those governing handgun ownership, sale, transport and transfer, at GWG events are unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Participants in GWG events not abiding by such policy will receive a warning from the co-Moderators and, if such behaviour continues, will be asked to leave the GWG event and forego any future participation with the group. What you do on your own time away from the group is your business, but at GWG we follow the law. Thank you for your understanding and for abiding by this policy.
