The Nation’s ONLY Expo Dedicated To Education And Training Responsible Gun Owners

The USCCA Expo is a consumer show dedicated to opening a world of tactical ingenuity to responsible American gun owners. Each year we aim to travel regionally in attempts to reach as many responsibly armed Americans as possible. In 2017, you can join us April 7th through 9th at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, TX. Staffed by our very own USCCA team, you'll get to interact with thousands of other members–yes members get in FREE–and have the chance to meet USCCA President and Founder, Tim Schmidt.

This expo is definitely NOT a gun-free zone! The USCCA Expo offers safe and practical seminars from industry experts, a live-fire shooting range to test new pistols, and a one-of-a-kind Concealed Carry Fashion Show!
