Jacob And Riley To Teach At USCCA Concealed Carry Expo

In case you've recently crawled out from under your rock, we are getting ready to enter into the second phase of our gun conferences for the 2018 calendar year. Of course, SHOT Show, 2018 has passed and was a great time. Now, we ramp up for the USCCA's Concealed Carry Expo, taking place from April 13th through 15th, in Louisville, Kentucky.

Most of our team will be out in attendance at our booth, and we hope you come by and say hi.

If you remember from our last article on the Concealed Carry Expo, we plan to give out gifts just for stopping by to visit our booth, which is number 125. We've already covered what your gift is, here and how our gift and the free t-shirt from USCCA's pre-registration more than covers the cost to go. I'm not a fan of beating things to death and don't think it prudent to cover again. So, let's move on to the actual point:

As of right now, it looks like the schedule has come together, for the most part, speaker wise. And, let me tell you there are some excellent speakers covering topics you won't want to miss. Here is a partial list of who will be sharing their thoughts on many different gun, training, and concealed carry skills:

  • Rob Pincus
  • Carrie Lightfoot
  • Gabby Franco
  • Chris Cerino
  • Mike Hughes
  • Our Own Riley Bowman and Jacob Paulson
  • Many, many others

I'm sure you recognize some of those names, some of which made appearances on the TV show, Top Shot, others are world-famous instructors. Our very own Riley and Jacob will be there, not only interviewing people for the Concealed Carry Podcast, but also teaching a few seminars, as well.

One class they'll be teaching is entitled 5 Permit Holders Who Died Trying, and the other one is called Muscle Memory Mistakes. Those are definitely some classes you want to be there for, as well as the others taking place.

If you feel enticed, you can find out more more information on the Expo, here. And, no. We don't get any benefit or payments if you sign up other than getting to see our friends … YOU!

    How come your expo is always in KY? Have you ever been having an expo in other states? I wish I could come to your expo had you had your expo in NJ

      It isn’t our expo. It is an event by the USCCA, not us. Last year they held it in Dallas. The year before that in Atlanta. Next year’s location hasn’t been announced.
