Armed Women Test Project

For many women, gun ownership feels like a “male-only” activity. Additionally, many women feel intimidated by the idea of seeking out information and help relating to gun handling and ownership.

Armed Women of America (AWA) is a non-profit organization with chapters across the country where women gather regularly to learn and grow in their abilities to handle firearms safely, responsibly, and competently. 

AWA exists to enable women to be their own self-protectors, creating freedom, peace of mind, and confidence in themselves. Our vision is that women have the skills, mindset, and training to defend themselves and those in their care.
