30 Days, 30 FREE Guns is a SCAM?

30 Days, 30 FREE Guns is a SCAM?

Yesterday we announced that we’re giving away 30 free guns in April. We will be spending tens of thousands of dollars on this promotion. Many people are expressing OUTRAGE at the fact that you’ll automatically be entered to win a free gun when you subscribe to Concealed Carry Magazine or purchase a set of home defense and personal protection DVDs.

I’d like to clear up what appears to be some common misconceptions.

1. This is NOT a scam. We are actually going to be sending out checks in the amount of the MSRP of each gun to each winner. In fact, we sent out 12 of these checks last month. This month, we’re sending 30. Here’s one of our happy winners from last month:

2. This is an “ethical bribe.” Here’s what I mean: We are automatically entering everyone in the daily drawing who purchases the nation’s BEST resource for concealed carry and personal defense or our amazing personal protection DVD package. Both purchases are backed by a 100% Money-Back, 365 Day Guarantee. If you aren’t completely satisfied, all you have to do is say the word and you’ll receive a prompt and courteous refund. Our refund rates are amongst the lowest in the industry because our customers are overwhelmingly satisfied with everything purchased from us. And on top of that, we of course want to give away guns to people who are seeking the education and training that we provide – as they’re on the path to being responsibly armed Americans.

3. No purchase necessary. Really, just send us a post card, and the day we receive it your name will be entered along with everyone else. Yes, this is in the fine print. Why? Check out #2. This company is anchored in improving our communities and equipping responsible citizens. We want to provide as many people as possible with our expert training and resources, because we know it will quite literally make our homes, our families, our communities, and our nation safer to have this information in the hands of as many responsibly armed Americans as possible.

We are giving 30 people the opportunity to win new guns in April.

If you subscribe to Concealed Carry Magazine, you’ll receive automatic entry.

If you purchase a set of Home Defense & Personal Preparedness DVDs, you’ll receive automatic entry.

OR, just send us a postcard and we’ll include your name in the drawing the day we get it.

It’s really that simple.

Take care and stay safe,

  1. Where’s my gun?????? lol.

  2. Thank You for the offer. After having to sell all my firearms in N.C. to enable me to move back to N.Y. due to my mothers health, this would be a great start to rebuilding my collection. I have NO weapons as of now. I appreciate the opportunity to back the Second Ammendment.

  3. Nothing wrong with giving away free guns providing the recipient is either trained or to be trained in the use and care of them.

  4. What if I take a membership out, does that enter me in the gun giveaway instead of just getting a subscription to a magazine? If so, the the type of membership make a difference or does one give me an advantage over another as far as winning?

    1. I’m not able to answer your question but perhaps someone else will. I just joined today and would like to know my status for the free gun drawings. Am I entered everyday or just one. I’m not about to mail a card in each day.

      1. You are only entered the day you subscribe or purchase the DVD. For the no purchase required please go to the fine print of the giveaway and last sentence of paragraph 4.

    2. Call the uscca and ask them about it they sent me a link where I can register everyday I have it on my smartphone and 3 clicks and I am registered

  5. Sounds great to me … Hope I can get a post card in the mail , so I will be entered … We all need to be armed , yes I have my conceal permit and carry all the time .. Keep up the good work

  6. I am A firm be leaver in concealed carry . I have my state concealed carry and proud of it .

  7. As a subscriber, I knew you are not running a scam Tim. You have the best gun magazine in the publishing business for the concerned gun owner who carries, and my wife and I do. Keep up the great work.

  8. Good job. How do I receive a subscription to Concealed Carry mag???

  9. No scam here folks! I’m a winner any way you look at it. First, I’ve got all kinds of information and education available to me through both the USCCA website and the Concealed Carry Magazine and second, I’ve been chosen as a winner for this month’s 30 Days 30 Free Guns giveaway! Doing some serious thinking on just what to get and thankful for the chance to be an American that can own a gun. Keep us free and safe folks.


  11. Congratulations to all the winners so far, but I was looking for the list of winners for the ammo give away. Been a member for a couple of years now and have to say it’s the best organization out there for everything from legislation to training to reviews of products. Anyone reading this that hasn’t joined yet, what are you waiting for???

  12. I found an address some different from this and send a post card.It said don’t worry we are not sending you a gun we are sending you $600 to buy one if you win.

    U S Concealed Carry

  13. Where is the link for subscribers? I am a life member. You were sending out links during past giveaways for those that are already members.

    1. Yeah where do people that have paid subscriptions enter or are we entered already?

  21. The legal stated …”no purchase necessary “…
    …”enter by mail”…as often as you want.
    …”or skip the sloppy handwritten letters and enter electronically”…

    I chose to enter electronically on Thursday the 4th. All fine and dandy.
    Next day, I click the link after reading my email newsletter from USCCA to try to enter for the Friday raffle. No count down or display of the featured gun are displayed.

    I tried to view the rules section that has the a dress to mail in, and the link to enter electronically. They are not on the page either.

    I tried this on three different devices.

    How about being consistent with your legal department. I suggest fixing this problem. I’m not purchasing a plan until after I am prepared to protect my family, and I promised I wouldn’t spend the money on a firearm.

    So I am USCCA member and I am wanting to know if I am automatically entered in any drawings? I subscribed to the magazine when I got the membership in December of 2015 and have gotten two copies so far. Thank you in advance for your help.

    1. Hi John,

      Thanks for being part of the USCCA family. You are not automatically entered into the drawings. Please use our No Purchase Necessary Link below for all future drawings! Good Luck!


      Kristine :)

  24. I won. How long does it usually take to get the prize?

    1. Hello Patrick,

      Congratulations! Once we receieve the completed W9 back from you we can go ahead and mail that out and it takes around 2-4 business weeks. If you did not receive the W9, please contact our Raffle Winner Coordinator, Angg, at angg@uscca.com and we will resend that right away!

      Take care and stay safe!
