Being properly trained in the safe use of your firearm is very important. Whatever training you get, be sure that it meets your state requirements (the USCCA Concealed Carry and Home Defense Fundamentals Course meets Michigan and Wisconsin requirements), that it provides information on the legal aspects of using deadly force, and that it prepares you for what happens afterwards. The USCCA offers protection to it's members by providing legal defense teams to help you in the event you have to use your weapon. You want the best protection for yourself and your family, and that should include legal and financial protection in case you need to defend yourself. Ask me about USCCA membership and what it can do to protect you and your family.
