A & M Firearms Training is pleased to be a strong supporter of The Well Armed Woman Shooting Chapters!  We are pleased to say that we have educated hundreds of women in the Northern CA region in the safe use of handguns.  TWAW has instructors and range safety officers on the range at each meeting.  Where can you go to get 'free' instruction and guidance one time/month?  And, that is just on the range!  The classroom presentations range from situational awareness to protecting your home to gun cleaning!  Our Leadership Team and membership are a dynamic group of 225+ women supporting each other in our common endeavors! For the fourth year in a row, the Sacramento Chapter was named the largest chapter in the nation!   


TWAW Shooting Chapters exists to educate and empower women in a safe and non-threatening environment for their effective and responsible self-defense with a firearm.  If you are new to the world of firearms and want to get information before making purchases, before making the full commitment, we encourage you to research the information on the web-site below and/or attend one of our meetings!  We have instructors at every meeting ready to assist!  For specific information about TWAW Shooting Chapters, explore www.twawshootingchapters.org.
