Des Moines-Western Suburbs (DSMWest) Chapter

Our mission is to educate, equip, and empower women. We do this by providing opportunities to learn awareness and safe gun-handling skills, all in a friendly and fun environment. We will help to hone the skills of those who are already familiar with firearms. This is a wonderful opportunity to form new friendships and enjoy the sisterhood of The Well Armed Woman.
