Kerri Ann’s Story: USCCA Member Attacked in Friend’s Home


It doesn’t take much for a normal day to turn into one of the most pivotal moments of your life…

Just ask Kerri Ann, a gun owner and USCCA Member from Florida. She arrived at her friend’s home for lunch one day and quickly found herself in the middle of a heated argument between her friend and her friend’s boyfriend. Her friend was visibly upset, and Kerri Ann knew she had to do something…

Using what she had learned from the USCCA, Kerri Ann tried to de-escalate the situation, but the boyfriend instead set his sights on her and became even more aggressive. He pushed her, blocked her ability to escape and was ready to attack again.

That’s when Kerri Ann’s USCCA training kicked in.

A Verbal Challenge

Remaining calm but fearing for her safety, Kerri Ann pulled her gun in self-defense and ordered her attacker to stop. Seeing the gun, he fled.

A marine-based police unit was the first to arrive on scene and comforted Kerri Ann until the sheriff arrived. But both the marine unit and the sheriff believed the boyfriend’s outrageous story that Kerri Ann had attacked him!

Fearing now for her legal and financial future, Kerri Ann called the USCCA Critical Response Team. As a USCCA Member, she was able to contact a pro-2A attorney who went to bat right away to clear her name. Making just a few phone calls, her attorney got all charges dropped.

Kerri Ann never even saw a pair of handcuffs.

You see, you need to be prepared for the unthinkable. With the help of the USCCA, you can rest easy knowing you have the best protection, community and resources to back you up.

But don’t take my word for it…

Hear Kerri Ann tell her own story and find out how you too can enjoy peace of mind — and self-defense education and training — that comes with a USCCA Membership.
