Hello Kerry @kerry8 Welcome to the community
I am Kristine and I am fro Wisconsin
Welcome fellow cheese head
I’m Ronald D. Murphy and I’m a former Marine and retired Army Soldier. I’ve been carrying for about 2 years and I do because I want to protect my family which include wife, grand kids and my brother and sister in law. I’m the only one with weapons training, the rest of the family are really religious except grand kids and will not carry if their lives depended on it. I have alot to learn so I’ll be picking your brains,
@Ronald_D - thank you for your service, and welcome to the community!
Hello all, My name is Mark and I’m from SW Ohio. I’ve recently become a member of the USCCA and started carrying again a couple months ago. I have owned firearms all my adult life; The staple, has always been my S&W .45 6451 and my EDC, is a Ruger EC9. I just purchased an AR lower receiver and will be building my first rifle. Looking forward to the build as much as I am the range.
I’ve had tactical training some years ago and look forward to refreshers and some additional training in rifle tactics and emergency trauma in the near future. I do believe practice, familiarity and training are keys to being prepared. Also, I’ve just registered and confirmed my plans to attend the Expo in Kansas City.
With help from Dawn some of us are going to try and have an informal meet and greet sometime during the Expo. Watch for a thread as things get closer.
Awesome,!! A community meet and greet sounds like it would be #Ultralegit! I would definitely be there, (as long as its not between 9-12 on Sat?!)
(**FYI, the hashtag is courtesy of Justin over in the USCCA call center. LOL)
Yeah, I will definitely be there for the Expo and a meet and greet. I look forward to meeting as many of you as I can. Wife and I are driving up.
@Kristine1 Welcome to the community!
@Ronald_D Welcome to the community brother! Marine and Army. I was Navy then Air Force. Between the two of us we have the branches covered. Woops! I forgot “Space Force”. Jump right in and keep the faith,
Hello all…I’m retired USAF and have been a member of USCCA since Jan 2011. I’ve been carrying on and off since around 1990, more so since getting stationed here in AZ in 2001. I’ve taken the 2-day and 4-day Defensive Handgun courses at Front Sight and am looking forward to going back there again, and someday if I can save up enough to get to Gunsite. I’m a huge Sig fan, but I also am enthralled with CZs and Glocks. Looking forward to learning from the community and maybe once in a while chiming in.
My name is Clay. I am glad to be a part of the USCCA and glad I found it. I’ve been shooting and hunting since birth. I carry at least one weapon daily. I have had to use my weapon in defense of my self and others and have gone through the whole lawsuit thing. Thankfully due to my employment I had coverage. It took over 10 years to get through the legal portion. I am thankful to find this type of coverage for the average citizen. It’s something you never ever want to have to use but if it happens this coverage will be priceless. I look forward to see what training and gear are available through the USCCA. I have experienced a lot of real life shoot no shoot situations but it’s been a while so it will be refreshing to get back to training again. Carry heavy and carry often.
&& Thank you for your service @JiminAZ
My grandfather was also retired USAF!
Did you ever go to BARKSDALE AFB?
@Randall318 — Thanks! No, I never made it to Barksdale AFB. Lots of other bases, though!
Reason for asking is because of my grandfather being there is how I was even born if you narrow it down lol
So thank God for Barksdale AFB
Again thank you for your service, sir! & Enjoy your retirement! We are glad you are here!
Glad you’re with us. The more the merrier.
Greetings All. I’m Mike, a retired Navy Chief Petty Officer with 22 years of service. I’m resonably new to the CCW community and have been learnnig all I can. Looking forward to gaining more knowledge and meeting like-minded folks.
We are so glad to have you @Michael803!!
Thank you for your service and God bless!!
Happy snowy Monday from West Bend, WI! I hope you’re all safe and sound from the crazy weather over the last week!
