OK, this is not considered “gear”. But in my opinion, it’s one of the best investments and one of the best services that I could possibly endorse, especially for my readers in Illinois. It’s a Membership to the United States Concealed Carry Association. Members receive benefits including insurances, legal representation, exclusive information, and a subscription to Concealed Carry Magazine- one of the most informative, cutting edge publications in the country. Readers can learn about legislation, tactics, training, ammunition and weapons, and tons of other information. They are also THE association to belong to if you are a current or aspiring firearms training instructor.

What’s cool is this membership is not just for the red-blooded, All- American hunter and pro-gun advocate like me. The USCCAs driving mission is to support, educate and advocate for our rights as US citizens to defend our families, our lives and our property in the most safe and effective way necessary. Everything they do revolves around their members. And everything from their communications to their leadership are nothing but exceptional. You’ll see what I mean when you visit their website at

If there is one association you join, or magazine to subscribe to this year, THIS IS IT!

You’ll thank me later.
