SPOKANE’S CHAPTER OF THE WELL ARMED WOMEN
OUR CHAPTER’S HOST RANGES ARE SPOKANE RIFLE CLUB & DAVENPORT GUN CLUB
TWO MEETINGS EVERY MONTH — ONE IN SPOKANE AND ONE IN DAVENPORT — Pick the meeting that is best for your schedule OR join us for both meetings: twice the shooting = twice the fun!
About Our Chapter:
To create woman friendly opportunities to practice and grow as responsible firearm owners, The Well Armed Women of Spokane hold monthly meetings to address issues important to women shooters; learn vital self-protection skills; acquire and practice safe gun-handling skills; and train together in a safe and supportive environment.
With more than 150 active members, Spokane’s TWAW Chapter is an exciting mix of ladies age 18 to 88 who enjoy our women-friendly shooting and self-protection skill development opportunities. Chapter members find tremendous value in meeting other like-minded women and enjoy our informative meeting topics and guest speakers.
While the SpokaneTWAW Chapter’s mission is to educate, equip, and empower women firearm owners, our group is about more than shooting — it’s also about encouragement, support, friendship, growth, and fun.
If you are interested in safe storage of firearms, concealed carry, home defense, holster selection, or you just want the challenge of learning something new, join us for a chapter meeting to see what we’re all about.
Check out our public Facebook page for chapter events, pictures, and information about upcoming events.
About Our Meetings:
Each meeting explores a topic related to firearms and personal protection. The meetings involve both classroom time and live-fire range time as we educate, equip, and empower ladies on the path to taking responsibility for their own personal protection.
To get an idea of what we’re all about, ladies may attend their first chapter meeting as our guest (no membership required to attend your first meeting). TWAW membership is required for all additional meetings and it’s required in order to participate in our live-fire range sessions.
Grab a friend and come join in the fun! If you’re able to join us, please register on this page. Advance registration greatly helps us with meeting set-up, and ensures that we have enough handouts and range officers at each meeting. If the meeting you would like to attend is “sold out” please send us an email to let us know — this will help us know when we need to add another range session to our meeting dates.
About Our Meeting Locations:
For 5 years our chapter has held monthly meetings at Spokane Rifle Club and in March of 2019 (at the persuasion of Davenport Sporting Goods) we held a TWAW informational open house in Davenport, WA to gauge the community’s interest in chapter meetings at Davenport Gun Club. When more than 60 ladies showed up for the open house, we understood what the folks at Davenport Sporting Goods had been telling us for years and our Spokane chapter decided to multiply by bringing monthly meetings to the ladies of Lincoln, Adams, Grant, and Ferry Counties.
In April 2019, we held our first official meeting at Davenport Gun Club. We’re excited to be able to offer two meetings a month for our chapter members. Members are welcome to attend just one or both of the monthly meetings. There is a different topic for each meeting (see below).
Our chapter is blessed to have TWO host ranges. Davenport Gun Club is a .22lr caliber only indoor range. Ladies attending Davenport meetings will need to bring a .22lr handgun or plan to rent one of our chapter’s .22lr loaner pistols (email SpokaneTWAW@gmail.com for more information about renting one of the chapter’s pistols).
Spokane meetings are held at the indoor range at Spokane Rifle Club. This range is open to any pistol caliber handgun (.22lr, .380auto, and 9mm being the most common).
MONTHLY MEETINGS AT SPOKANE RIFLE CLUB:
On the 2nd Friday of each month from 6pm to 8:30pm the chapter meetings take place at Spokane Rifle Club’s Indoor Range.

If you’ve not been to SRC’s indoor range, we encourage you to take a look at this map (driving-directions-to-spokane-rifle-club). Please reference the directions on the map to Spokane Rifle Club’s indoor range as most GPS units and map apps take the driver several miles NW of the club’s actual location.
Davenport Gun Club is located directly to the east of the hospital in Davenport, WA. There is ample parking on the east side of the Davenport Gun Club (you do not need to park in the hospital parking lot).
