Operation Blazing Sword is a grass-roots organization dedicated to

helping LGBTQ people become responsible firearm owners.


If you think you may need a firearm for armed self-defense but don't feel comfortable going to a shooting range or a gun store by yourself, seek out any of our LGBTQ-friendly volunteer instructors. They will teach you the basics of firearm safety, operation and ownership for no cost and without judgement for your color, gender, sexual orientation, biology, or manner of dress.
