Total Crimes Stopped**
Total Lives Saved**
I know “save lives” might seem a little intense, but let me ask you a question … Have you ever genuinely feared for your life? Have you ever had an experience that you think: “this is it. I might not make it...”
Well if you have, I bet you can say with all certainty that you NEVER want your loved ones to feel that. You want to do everything in your power to make sure the people who are counting on you always feel safe and secure.
That’s what we really do here. Being a prepared, card-carrying USCCA Member is like carrying a Self-Defense Shield®.
Ultimately, the U.S. Concealed Carry Association is about peace of mind.
