Admission tickets are now available for the inaugural NRA Carry Guard Expo, kicking off in Milwaukee, WI, August 25-27 2017, providing three days of education and interaction for concealed-carry holders and personal-defense-minded citizens. The tickets enable access to the exhibit hall and free educational content spanning multiple topics relating to self defense and concealed carry.

Additional fee-based seminars, including a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class taught by MMA legend and hall of famer Royce Gracie, and other educational training opportunities taught by some of the best minds in the personal-defense industry will also be offered, tickets for which can be purchased at a later date. Be sure to check the Carry Guard Expo website frequently for updates.

One of the events offered by the expo will be "Making Your Own Individual First-Aid Kit (IFAK)" taught by former Green Beret medic Travis "Doc T." He will explain the many reasons why an IFAK is a vital piece of everyday-carry gear, and what equipment you should include in your IFAK. Doc T has extensive experience treating trauma, wounds and injuries suffered in combat and on the streets, and has used that experience to help design products to aid first responders and armed citizens. This seminar is sure to be useful for anyone serious about personal protection.

The expo will also feature a seminar entitled "Current and Emerging Threats: How it Affects You," taught by personal-protection expert Steve Tarani. Tarani has worked with U.S. defense, law enforcement and intelligence communities for more than 25 years and formerly served as the protective programs educator for the Central Intelligence Agency. He continues to train as a federal contractor and also serves as an advisor to the International Association of Chiefs of Police, in addition to his continued work as an active protective services agent. Tarani has also covered a number of personal-defense topics and tactics for Shooting Illustrated, including his latest piece on the use of the OODA Loop for self defense.

These seminars and more are available for no extra charge at the NRA Carry Guard Expo, taking place from Aug. 25-27, 2017. Admission for non-NRA members is $20. NRA members can purchase tickets at a discounted rate of $10. NRA Life Members and NRA Carry Guard members receive free admission. Admission tickets guarantee entry for all three days of the show.

Tickets for this one-of-a-kind event can be purchased on the event ticket sales website here. Nowhere else can you receive the best training, see the latest and greatest gear and have the opportunity to rub shoulders with like-minded citizens, all under one roof.
