Is the USCCA Gun Giveaway a Scam?

-

Who wouldn’t love the chance to win a free gun, a gun safe, ammo, range gear or another firearms-related prize just for becoming a member of the USCCA? Alternatively, you can enter the contest by merely dropping your info into the proverbial bucket. But is it too good to be true? Is the USCCA gun giveaway a scam?

The answer is a resounding “No way!”

Since the inception of our various giveaways, the USCCA has awarded thousands of firearms-related prizes to responsibly armed Americans across this great nation. You can visit the Winners List on USCCA.com for testimonials and a full roster of previous winners.

So, what’s the catch to these gun giveaways?

Well, we want to see guns go to people who are seeking the self-defense education, training and protection we provide. These gun giveaway contests complement the other exclusive offers and discounts associated with joining the USCCA. It’s our way of thanking those people who have made the decision to protect themselves and their families by joining the USCCA or upgrading a current USCCA Membership.

But there’s no such thing as a free lunch, right? Sure, there’s a tiny catch. Offering contest entry with no purchase necessary gives us a no-obligation opportunity to introduce ourselves and the benefits of USCCA Membership. Having a chance to win a free gun is sweet, but USCCA Membership offers benefits every single day. We’re hoping that entrants will take the opportunity to learn more about us. Maybe they’ll decide to join more than 300,000 other responsible gun owners in becoming a USCCA Member.

Plus, it gives current USCCA Members a chance to win some great prizes!

How do USCCA gun giveaways work?

Details vary, so it’s essential to consult the terms, conditions and official rules of the specific promotion you wish to enter. That’s a pretty good life habit to get into in general, right? Winners are drawn at random after the end of a particular contest.

But since shipping guns and ammo is restricted in some states, winners are generally awarded a check in the amount of the MSRP of all prizes featured in the sweepstakes. We hope that they use that money to buy the featured prize from their local retailer, but really they can use it for whatever they like.
