      The AVF&GA Annual 2020 Women's Firearms Familiarization Program has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

AVFGA looks forward to sponsoring this popular program next year.

We hope everyone stays safe and healthy.

The AVFGA Board of Directors


      This six hour familiarization program is designed exclusively for women over the age of seventeen who have little or no experience with the handling or use of a firearm. This is not a hunter education course, self defense course, or marksmanship course.

        The program consists of a two hour classroom session from 9:00am to 11:00am stressing firearms identification, function and safe handling.  Lunch will be from 11:00am to 11:30am. As there are no close by food outlets and the time is short it is suggested that participants bring a lunch with them. This is followed by a four hour range session from 11:30am to 3:30pm which includes firing 22 rifles, pistols, a 9mm handgun, and a shotgun at paper and reactive targets.  Firing the shotgun is optional. All firearms will be provided by the Androscoggin Fish and Game Association or its Directors. No exceptions!

    There will be one-on-one instruction during the range session and because of this participation will be limited on a first come, first served basis. Classroom and range sessions will be held outdoors at the Androscoggin Valley Fish & Game Association's range located on East Milan Road in Milan, NH.

     Pre-registration is required. Registration will not be taken the day of the program. The program fills up quickly so it is advisable that you register early.

     The preferred method to pre-register is by email. Please use the following email address to pre-register:

Leave your name, home address, email address and phone number.

If you do not have email call 466-2429 to register.  

Participants will receive notification that they are enrolled in the program.

There is a $10.00 charge for the program to cover the cost of materials.
