    Hello Guardians! My name is Edmond W Holcombe, but I use the name Edd for short. I served 22 years in the US Army started out as a Cobra Helicopter Crewchief and retired as a Combat Engineer. I have a degree in Education from Purdue University and for the last 10 years I have been working for the Federal Government. I have a beautiful wife of 25 years, three sons and two daughters in law.

    I searched for along time for training materials I could use to train my whole family, finally I found Consealed The bonus is that Guardian Nation connected me to other like minded individuals and allows me to tap into a large treasure trove of ideas, training materials and equiptment. Love the Podcast as well. I live in north west Indiana. The picture is my wife Debbby and I driving our Jeep Wrangler.

    I'm Rob Beckman and during the day I'm a computer consultant working on stuff that keeps companies in business. In the evening I'm a concealed carry instructor focusing on training responsible citizens to carry and also to train new instructors on how to instruct. Certifications include NRA, USCCA, Glock advance armorer, and IALEFI to name a few. I'm always looking to expand my knowledge and pass along what I know to others to enable them to respond appropriately in the time of need.

Don't know much about guns, ammo, conceal carry or armed self defense, but time to learn.

    Shirley Hilscher

    Hello. My name is Shirley Hilscher. I am a 10 year ‘retired’ veteran of the USAF. I live in south Texas and I love my guns and my freedom. For many that don’t know, securing our southern most border is a real deal. I’m about 2.5-3 hours from the Mexico border and for the most part, these illegals who come across only want a job or chance to earn some money. But it’s the other percentage of illegals I worry about. A person has to be ready for anything with these individuals. I don’t want to be a victim. I want to be ready. Hence the subscription to CC.


    Kevin Christie

    Hi, I'm Kevin Christie. I work in wireless telecom after nearly 7 years service in the Marine Corps. I am highly patriotic and believe that our 2nd amendment rights are God given and cannot be taken away unless we allow it. I enjoy shooting rifles, shotguns and pistols. I am a concealed weapons permit holder and carry pretty much daily. I believe in constant, quality training to keep my skills sharp and look forward to the resources a membership to this site will afford me.



    Hi Guardians, My name is Jerry Apodaca. I'm in Fire Captain in Sacramento CA. Grew up in the foothills between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe. Love the rural life which ALWAYS includes firearms. I have a Guardian Nation Challenge Coin (number 4). I have a CCW and am a USCCA member & NRA Lifetime member. I carry EVERYDAY. By far my favorite part of GN is the LIVE BROADCASTS and all the guests. I've learned so much along the way and look forward to every podcast. The Black Friday's are cool too. I'll be retiring at the end of the year and plan on traveling to some FREE states in search of a new place to call home. Recommendations are welcomed 🙂

    I believe we live in perilous times and have taught my sons, I hope, to survive.


    Michelle Carr

    Hi Everyone. My name is Mickey and I live in SE WV, transplanted of NW OH July of 2015 after I retired in January 2015 after 40 years as a surgical technician. I wanted a small hobby farm so that I could be a little more self sufficient/self reliant and part of that is being able to defend myself and my property. My husband was the one that knew more about guns than I did, but since he has passed it is time that I learn more about what I have so that I can use them appropriately. I do have a CCW, but am still a little leery of handguns. I am more comfortable with rifles and shotguns. My husband and I used to do Cowboy shooting and my favorite gun for that was the 20ga double barrel shotgun/coach gun. I am looking forward to learning more from the forum.
