              United States Concealed Carry Association — Safety Training

If you plan to carry a gun anywhere outside the home — in your purse, car, on your person, etc. — PLEASE get professional training from a USCCA certified instructor.  Every month inexperienced gun carriers die or are wounded — including those who are accidentally shot by their own children!

Be safe and let others be safe, too.  Get trained!


 Effective Gun Training Program Saves Kids’ Lives. 

The U.S. General Accounting Office found the ASK program to be one of the most effective training programs at saving the lives of children from accidental gun deaths.  It does this simply by asking parents to take this pledge:  If their child is going to some other house, the parents WILL ask the owners if they have an unprotected, loaded gun.  Too often parents may be gun safety smart, but other parents aren’t.  Take the Pledge, and pass it along to other parents.  Click here.
