What?! I did not get a shirt or a range bag.
@Fred_G Yup, me neither. I think when we get to “Respected” we should get a free T-Shirt. They just need to put the logo on the back. I hate front logo t-shirts…
Seriously, why is it no one realizes you don’t need the target on your chest? Most everyone knows how to shoot frontals.
Well, it is usCca, they probably figure anything on the back will be covered up by a shirt or jacket anyway…
I’ll conceal it well or excuse myself.
Few people even know what the USCCA is and those who do won’t be those you need to worry about.
On top of that most people wearing a logo T of some sort aren’t carrying or wearing what they are advertising so I would not consider it an issue.
There are a variety of different promotional times and options. And everyone who has a USCCA Membership is a winner because of the awesome benefits included in the USCCA Membership.

I purchased my first intended carry gun before my CCW license arrived. I picked it up at the gun shop after my three-day wait, walked straight into the gun range. I didn’t clean the gun and gave the owner’s manual a cursory glance. It was a Keltec PF-9. Very lightweight and kicked like an angry mule. After the first shot nearly launched the gun behind me, I wrestled a much firmer - and much higher - grip on the gun. I pulled the trigger, the slide ripped rearward and tore a nice chunk out of my strong side thumb. Good thing I had a handkerchief in my pocket. Good thing I know how to tie a bandage from a handkerchief. Better thing that the handkerchief was clean.
I shot that gun for a few weeks, but by the time I started carrying, I had traded it in for a Steiger Cougar (which I eventually traded in for a Glock 43).
Lessons learned - clean the new gun, read the new gun’s owner’s manual and don’t be in such a hurry to shoot the new gun.
I wasn’t a licensed carrier at the time- I had a guy whom I didn’t know, try to break into my house through a bedroom window. Chased him off the first nite, bought a firearm the next day, he came back the following nite and out the window I went with my firearm. Thankfully I didn’t shoot but I know now not to run after anyone.
Slide bites! I know y’all have (at least) one. I still have two scars on my left thumb from many years ago when I first shot my Colt Officer’s Model 380 with my left thumb wrapped above by right thumb. They aren’t very noticeable any more. But damn that hurt.
Walther 380 PPK/S : strange how those direct blow back operators snap that slide
smallish gun in big hand too!
