Concealed Carry

"Owning or carrying a firearm isn't about statistics or constitutional arguments,

it's not about analogies or comparisons, it's not about the gear,

and to be honest, it's not even about the gun.

It's about taking a small measure of personal responsibility for our safety and the safety of our families."  USCCA textbook author, Michael Martin


Taking that responsibility seriously means getting trained the best way possible, and always seeking more training and situationally-appropriate practice.

The reason the USCCA training material exists is simple and profound: To save lives and bring security to our communities.


This course may be taken as a beginner or experienced gun owner.

Course includes the 270-page, richly illustrated USCCA textbook.

Participants receive certificate of training.
