The 2017 Expo was so much fun this year. Wish to thank
all who came out to support the Arizona Women's Shooting
Associates. I am so grateful to all the ladies for giving
up their weekend and working the booth. Making sure everyone
one safe we donated some ear plugs to our little friend
who was in the next booth.
From Our President
New Year Everyone!
We are looking forward to 2017 with our classes and our
Wednesday night practices. In Feb. we will be unveiling
our first ladies rifle team. We
have started practicing together and have our first competition
at the 125th Washington Birthday Match Feb. 19th 2017.
Come and support us at Ben Avery high power range, and no admission
fee. Have lunch at the food truck which supports our Junior
Rifle team for Arizona State Rifle and Pistol Assoc.
Make sure you check out our new public Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/AZWomensShootingAssociates/
On our Facebook private group page, we have made it easier to
download class registration forms from the website (www.azwsa.com)
and Facebook. Pictures will be changing as time goes on as well
to include a quick note on what you missed at the last meeting.
Stay tuned for a AWSA YouTube channel as well.
For those of you viewing us for the first time welcome! We are
a women's group but family friendly. We encourage you to join
us anytime even if you have never fired a gun before. All instructors
are NRA certified instructors with years of experience in teaching
We also have one on one instruction for the new and those who
haven't shot in a while. Our practices consist of drills, moving,
pulling from the holster, scenarios of personal protection and
much more. We rent guns for $5 if you let us know in advance
and you purchase the manufactured ammo.
Our rifle program is starting to grow, and we encourage you
to broaden your experiences with other firearms. We want all
of our ladies to be comfortable with guns,
confident and competent.
Spring is always such a busy time for us, with practice, the
Arizona Game and Fish Expo at Ben Avery, Women on Target, CCW
classes and the Phase II Basic Pistol. In the works are several
instructor classes coming in Pistol, Personal Protection in
the Home and Rifle. So you better keep watching the site as
we're on a roll!
God Bless and stay safe,
ASRPA Women's Director

Something to Consider
Your dues of $50 a year is supporting a women's organization,
taught by women with experience in teaching and competition.
We have spent hundreds and thousands of dollars developing our
classes to educate you for a small investment. Look around and
you will see how much classes cost elsewhere. It's important
to us to teach good quality education to women and keep the
cost down in these challenging economic times.
So if you're looking for quality education and stretching the
dollar than look no further. Come and visit us at the Arizona
Women's Shooting Associates, for the quality education in a
fun and safe environment.
Happy New Year and God Bless,
Women Teaching Women
AWSA teaches everyday shooting scenarios in a professional environment.
Striving to meet these needs by giving you the skills on how and when
to defend yourself is our goal. By having everyone participate in
demonstrations keeps the student very involved, and in turn the student
will teach another student to reinforce their learning process
AWSA teaches with repeated drills to create muscle memory to help
in the defense process. Knowing the condition of your gun at all times
is strictly enforced by the safety rules. The student will become
aware that this is not only a fun sport, but also a thinking sport.
Learning to plan their shots for competition and knowing when to reload
AWSA is a ladies group on the move. They might be sitting, kneeling,
prone, standing or running. To get you to this point is our goal,
and having fun doing it.
All instructors are NRA certified a combined 30 years of firearm instruction.
