Pink Pistols *
Pink Pistols Asheville is a non-partisan social and educational group, it's an LGBT shooting club with national ties.
Targeted Audiences: LGBTQ+ Adults (21+), LGBTQ+ Focused
We are dedicated to the legal, safe, and responsible use of firearms for the self-defense of the sexual minority community. We no longer believe it is the right of those who hate and fear gay, lesbian, bi, trans, or polyamorous persons to use us as targets for their rage. Self-defense is our RIGHT. The Pink Pistols get together regularly at local firing ranges to practice shooting and to acquaint people new to firearms with them. If you are a novice and express interest, we will help you select a firearm, acquire a permit, and receive proper training in its safe and legal use for self-defense. The more people know that members of our community may be armed, the less likely they will be to single us out for attack. Join us today. It is your RIGHT!
We are not activists and ask that members refrain from political discussions in the Facebook group. Political posts within this group will be removed. Should you have a topic idea for a meeting that may or may not be political in nature, or general questions, please send that to the group leader to be placed on an agenda for a future meeting.
