Welcome to the community, we are glad you found us! I don’t know what city you’re in, and it doesn’t matter, but you can try to look for some indoor ranges in your area. They don’t offer much in the means of distance, as most are around 25 yards or so. It’s something though. They are becoming more popular due to the ability to shoot regardless of the weather. If you’re interested in training the USCCA page has a spot that lets you find certified instructors in your area, and if you’re a member, there’s a lot of great material that comes with your membership. Always remember that if you ever need to use your skills, you’ll only rise to the level of training you have. That’s one reason training is so important. The most important reason is that we are responsible for every round that leaves our firearms. The more we train and practice, the more we lower the chances that there will be collateral damage to answer for.
Welcome aboard! We are happy to have you here.

Hello and welcome @Adrienne111
Welcome to the Community @Adrienne111
Welcome, lots of really good people here. Lots of knowledge. Good group here. Bunches of free opinions from different points of view.
I’m lovin’ it,actual FREEDOM,hey,it’s startin’ to feel like AMERICA in here. America just ain’t the same without all those different perspectives & freedom to talk about em’.
Welcome Adrienne111. Lots of good folks here. Lots of information and knowledge to dig through, so bring your biscuits and soak up the gravy.
The best thing I can say about this group is how we communicate with one another as opposed to other social media platforms. Everyone here is civil. Even when there are differences of opinion, all sides see the benefits/drawbacks of the other sides and it is discussed in a civil fashion. There are no keyboard commandos here. No arguments. No name calling. Well, some name calling, but in good nature and mostly between veterans of the different branches. Shrugs. We do that.
Welcome Adrienne! There are definitely lots a good people in here and with many different experience levels. Love the family here and couldn’t ask for anything better. Again, welcome!
Hello. My name is Daniel and I am new to this forum and the USCCA Community. I have a question that I am unsure of after trying to research on line.
I recently bought a handgun from Cabelas. My name came back flagged (I was getting my LTC). Which was understandable. I have received my LTC in the mail (got it about a week after I bought the gun), but Cabelas is telling me I cannot pick up the handgun since they have not received the approval from ATF/FBI/etc… It’s been over two weeks now and I am curious why they would not release the handgun to me if I have already received my LTC (obviously I have passed the inspection). Can anyone help explain this to me? I don’t want to be unreasonable. Much appreciated.
Welcome to the family brother @Daniel_Shaw and God bless you. Some states may take longer than others. I have my concealed carry permit and every time I purchase a firearm they still run a records check. Maybe because you purchased the gun before getting your LTC the ATF and FBI didn’t get your info yet.
Thanks Johnnyq60. Appreciate the info. I was getting worried that ATF/FBI would not process the request and I would be stuck in a handgun purgatory of sorts.
Welcome Daniel! For my state of Minnesota you either need a permit to purchase or permit to carry to purchase a firearm. You would need to have the proper identification even before purchasing. In this case, it sounds like it was someone new submitting info and didn’t check with you prior to purchasing. I could be wrong. Regardless, you could try to go back and ask them to call or resubmit to the ATF, if it’s even allowed. Some states can definitely take longer at processing as well. Just depends on their procedures/protocols.
Again, welcome to the group and can definitely learn a lot here!
Be nice if this were the steps to buying a firearm:
- Look at Firearm
- Pay for Firearm
- Leave with firearm
