Concealed Carry Lifestyle Gets Its Own Expo

Concealed Carry Expo

With a comprehensive lineup of retailers, manufacturers, and “living classroom” seminars, the USCCA Concealed Carry Expo says it’ll deliver everything you need to know about the concealed-carry lifestyle. The inaugural event will be held this weekend, May 8-10, 2015, at the Washington County Fair Park in West Bend, Wisconsin. It will feature a three-day consumer show with technical sessions, demonstrations, a concealed-carry fashion show, and experts speaking about a wide array of gun-related topics.

Also on site will be a live-fire range where adult guests will have the opportunity to test out firearms provided by various sponsors. Participants can receive shooting instruction and feel what it's like to fire the pistol of their choice.

Nationally known firearms instructor Dave Young will be providing three skill-building, defensive-handgun sessions. Each three-hour class can be taken separately, at $50 per session, or altogether, for $99. As well, two WI concealed carry permit classes will be offered to participants for $75 (or for free, if you're a mom who wants to take the women's-only session on Mother's Day).

Other guests speakers will include James Yeager with his presentation, “Warrior: Mind, Body, and Spirit,” and USCCA's Chief Instructor, Michael Martin, with two presentations: one on school shootings and another on distance learning in the firearms community. USCCA contributing writer Beth Alcazar will present “Concealed Carry For Moms: Breaking The Mold, combat veteran Anthony Lambert will talk about first-aid topics for the gun owner, and George Harris, co-founder of the SIG Academy and president and CEO of International Firearms Consultants, will discuss training fundamentals for defensive shooters.

The Concealed Carry Expo will host a fashion show Saturday night from 6-8 p.m. This unique event will showcase new designs in concealed-carry fashions and accessories for both men and women. The keynote speaker for this special, ticketed event is Milwaukee County's own Sheriff David Clarke, Jr.

The three-day Expo is open 3-7 p.m. on Friday, May 8; 9 a.m.-6 p.m. on Saturday, May 9; and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday, May 10.
