There are a lot of reasons to choose to take responsibility for your own safety, but you don’t have to do it alone. More than 525,000 law-abiding are USCCA Members, and you can be too.
My search began to find a company that we felt we could trust with our well-being. The USCCA seemed to put that at the forefront of what they stand for. It was wonderfully overwhelming to see all the tools, documents and more USCCA has put in place for their members. They are not only concerned about your worst day but every day of your life as a concealed [carrier]. Knowing USCCA is there for me and my family gives me peace of mind.

I — like MOST, if not ALL in the USCCA — believe it’s not so much of a right to join such an organization as USCCA, but a responsibility. I look at having my CCW and association with USCCA much like I do with voting; [it’s] another one of our rights. But for ME at least, it’s more a fundamental responsibility as an American to do so … Thanks Tim and USCCA Family!

I have been in law enforcement for 31 years and have held the Office of Sheriff for the past 11 years. I am also an Idaho POST Certified Firearms Instructor and have been an instructor for the past 24 years. As Sheriff, I sign off on all the concealed weapons license permits in my county. I am a member of many organizations but expressly the USCCA because it gives me additional insight into the issues of concealed weapon ownership and carry. In spite of my experience, there is always something new to learn.

I joined USCCA because I believe that the organization is uniquely positioned and provides responsibly armed citizens the encouragement, information and training that we need. I do not believe there is another organization that offers as much for so little … The way I look at it, if you are a responsibly armed citizen, you cannot afford not to join.

A few months ago I was at the local playground with my fiancé and our 2-year-old son. While we were walking to our car to leave, a young kid walked up to a group of kids playing basketball right behind us and pulled out a gun to rob them for their cell phones. Without skipping a beat, one of the kids being robbed tried to grab the gun from the thief. When that happened, the thief just started shooting in all directions, not caring who he shot. Once I realized what was happening, I knocked my fiancé and son on the ground and jumped on top of them trying to keep them safe. Thank God this idiot missed every shot. From that second, I refused to ever feel that helpless ever again. I applied for my license to carry firearms and signed up for the USCCA.

As a United States Marine, weapons have always been a priority. As I am no longer on active duty, I was seeking a place where I could continue to learn and hone my skills. The USCCA was where I found my home. Great training and support.
