Welcome to the American Women Shooters Mentorship!
To Mentor, Support and Promote Firearms Safety Education and Shooting
Proficiency For All American Women!**** Copyright A.W.S.M! 07-11
The American Women Shooters Mentorship aka AWSM! is a private, members only coalition of American women based out of central NC. We were loaded hot & launched by Crystal D Mann, a Carolina (gun) gal. We began with a local vision aimed at a national impact, helping one AWSM! shooter at a time.
We Are Committed to Firearms Safety, Education & Proficiency.
We Believe in More Education, Less Legislation.
We Believe In Responsibility & Accountability.
We Believe in Empowerment Through Firepowerment.
Are American Women of all backgrounds, shapes, sizes & occupations. We are a training organization, not a look-at-me-being-seen-social club. We are a coalition of committed, more-active-than-a-ballistic-missile women! We are committed to Safety, Education & Proficiency!
Members of AWSM! enjoy some really cool ballistic benefits! We've outlined a few perks below:
The AWSM! Tag:
Just like our AWSM! members, your too cool AWSM! member "dog" tag is unique to you, made individually on a vintage 1947 Graphotype "Dog Tag" Machine.

MEMBERSHIP PROCESS: Like anything worthwhile there's a process. The Membership process begins with your interest then is initiated by submitting the online form to express interest HERE.
After that expect to be contacted by an AWSM Official. Not like hiding in your bushes or anything: we will email or text you to see when it's convenient to meet or talk.
Operators are not standing by so expect a day or two before you hear back from us.
We're all women here; you probably are too so we're sure there's plenty to be done until you hear from us.
We are a private coalition, not a competition, and it's important our membership reflect our mission & values. We're a Sistership of a great big Gamily. To ensure a good fit we employ an age old method of communication: We Talk To Ya.
If It's A Good Fit: Welcome!
We Reserve the Right To Refuse or Revoke Membership Anytime Without Explanation!
There's a $25 Non Refundable Membership Application.
Annual Dues are $75.
