Gun Sweepstakes

As said from beginning your entitled to your opinion just as I am entitled to mine. If you disagree then that’s on you. It has no bearing on my opinion of the training provided. It is my opinion that the courses are water and a waste. So much so, I downgraded my membership because I do feel it’s a waste of my money. Your take on it and others may feel differently. That’s okay, that is your choice. It doesn’t change anything nor does it change my perception of USCCA and Delta Defense.

I thought this topic was about the gun sweepstakes???

I don’t want to be too cranky, but your USCCA Community profile suggests that you aren’t a USCCA Member — unless you just quit or haven’t been around long enough for the platform to catch up with you.

Anyway, a chance at the long-odds prize drawing is a poor investment at the $300 or the $500 level. I don’t think you hurt anyone’s feelings if you pick a level based on whatever you decide the insurance and the reference/education materials will be worth to you.

Pretty sure that you are eligible to lose at the prize drawing with the same odds at every level.
Good luck! :wink:

Ammo giveaways are what we really need, what with the government (IRS) buying up hundreds of thousands worth recently. Willing to bet most people here already have at least one firearm. Easiest way to neuter gun owners is to price them out of ammo. They don’t have a problem spending other people’s money.
