GOA Announces Inaugural National Women’s Range Day on March 9th


January 19, 2024

Washington, D.C. — Gun Owners of America (GOA) is excited to announce a new way to celebrate women’s empowerment on this upcoming International Women’s Day weekend. On March 9th, GOA and Empowered 2A will launch our inaugural National Women’s Range Day in Grapevine, Texas.

Ladies in attendance will have the opportunity to meet with female advocates and leaders in the Second Amendment community and seek advice on best practices in their concealed carry journey.  Additionally, each woman will receive a complimentary GOA one year membership with their ticket.

The event will allow women to shoot the firearms of their choice and celebrate our Empowered 2A motto: “Gun rights are women’s rights!” Join other empowered women for International Women’s Day and help us show the world what truly empowered women look like.

This event will be celebrated at Texas Gun Experience – a 35,000 sq. ft range that boasts a massive retail and firearm rental selection, high-tech shooting stalls, and a robust selection of machine guns for rent.

Attendees will have full access to fifteen 25-yard lanes and six 50-yard lanes for target practice and training, and plenty of time to sample the plethora of handgun and rifle rentals available.

Tickets for this Women’s-Only range day are only $20 and will include an all-access day pass at Texas Gun Experience including firearm rentals, ammunition, and range time.

On top of that, attendees will also learn how to be an effective advocate for the Second Amendment via small seminars on the GOA “No-Compromise” mission.

Antonia Cover, GOA’s Director of Women’s Outreach and Founder of Empowered 2A, issued the following statement: 

“I’m so excited to work with countless women from all walks of life as we celebrate International Women’s Day at the range. Research confirms that women are empowered through the Second Amendment, and studies highlight the increasing number of women choosing to exercise their rights – just during the pandemic over four million became gun owners. 

“This event will provide a space for women to grow, learn, and equip one another to be effective Second Amendment advocates and well-trained gun owners. I encourage all women to join us March 9th as we celebrate womanhood, true empowerment, and our right to defend ourselves however we choose.”
