The St. Louis, MO Chapter of The Well Armed Woman (TWAW-STL) is educating, equipping and empowering women in the St. Louis region! Our chapter welcomes shooters of all skill levels - brand new shooters and experienced shooters - and is an amazing group of ladies from ages 21 to 70+. We meet once a month for classroom time (with great information, discussions and informative speakers!), range time and an optional pre-meeting dinner meetup in the range's restaurant.
You’re welcome to attend your first meeting for the pre-meeting dinner meetup and classroom portion of our meeting, with no obligation. If you would like to keep coming back, please join The Well Armed Woman St. Louis Chapter. Please RSVP for each meeting to email@example.com or via the monthly meeting pinned post / announcement on our "secret" Facebook members-only page.
We have an awesome new host range as of Ocotber 2019 - SharpShooter's Indoor Shooting Range! Our meetings are generally the first Wednesday of every month.

Bring a dessert to share with the ladies and with the range staff to thank them for all they do for us throughout the year as our host range!
Sign in for our meetings is from 6:15-6:30 p.m. on meeting night in the classroom. Range staff will direct you to the classroom. We start with classroom time at 6:30 p.m., followed by an hour of range time. Our members-only educational meetings (aka classroom time) are free, and then range fees apply for the shooting portion of our meeting. Range time for our meetings is $10 per shooter (plus costs for any targets, ammunition, gun rental, etc.; eye and ear protection are required). Our meeting nights end by 9 p.m. We also have an optional pre-meeting dinner at 5:15 p.m. at the range's SharpShoot Pit and Grill.
You are welcome to attend your first meeting (classroom time and optional pre-meeting dinner only) to try it out before joining our chapter. Once you join our TWAW-St. Louis chapter, you will be able to shoot with us during the range time at our meetings. You will also be added to our "secret" Facebook group page for private discussions with all of our members. Also, we provide added details about meetings on that secret group page.
Our first meeting as a chapter was in March 2013. We were the 14th TWAW chapter created in the country, the first TWAW chapter in Missouri, and we have reached more and more women every month. Time flies when you’re having fun!
