Who We Are

Pink Pistol LogoWe are the Sacramento Valley chapter of the Pink Pistols. The Pink Pistols is a diverse group of people of all sexualities and lifestyles who are dedicated to the legal, safe, and responsible use of firearms for self-defense of the sexual-minority community.

Self-defense is a basic HUMAN RIGHT. The more people who know that members of our community may be skilled and armed, the less likely they will be to single us out for attack.

See www.pinkpistols.org for more information about the national group.

What We Do

Be prepared for Emergencies

As a local chapter of the Pink Pistols, our main purpose as a group is to provide a forum for GLBTQ folks and friends to get together and practice our firearms skills, share knowledge and expertise, and interact with like-minded people.

We're particularly welcoming of folks new to the world of shooting, and consider it a major part of our mission to provide them with a GLBTQ-friendly place to learn safety skills and shooting fundamentals.

Come Out, Come Out, Wherever You Are...

Whether you have an avid interest in the shooting sports and self-defense or are simply 'gun-curious,' feel free to come out and join us. We generally meet up at a local coffee shop first to socialize for a bit, then head down to a local range to shoot some.

The very best way to keep up with our activities is to join our Meetup group, so that you get meeting notices and announcements. If you are brand new and thinking about joining us, you should also check out our FAQ so you know what to expect.

We'd love to have you, and we're not nearly as crazy as we look... ;)

Monthly Shoot



The Sacramento Pink Pistols shoot about once a month...


...usually on the last Saturday of each month.


We generally meet at a local coffee shop to hang out, meet any new people, and catch up with old friends for half an hour or so, then carpool/caravan down to a local range for a little shooting fun.
