    USCCA - Magazine Only

    Passing along that USCCA is now offering a way to subscribe to their magazine, Concealed Carry Magazine, without having to become a member or having to signup for the insurance (Defense Shield) and I thought others may be interested. I received an email today with the info and link.

    I was a member from the start and I did not want the insurance at the time and that was the end of that. I don't like when someone put pressure on me to accept their way. Now they changed it, maybe they lost a lot of $.
    Thanks for the info.

    I saw an older copy of the magazine in the waiting room of my local range. I thought it was a good publication and would have subscribed for a nominal fee. I was disappointed to learn that it was tied to buying their expensive (several hundred dollar) insurance, which I had no interest in.

    Thanks for the tip, iguanadon. I like the magazine, but didn't want to sign up for the insurance etc. I'll try this subscription for a while, and if the spam becomes too much of a problem I will bail out.

    Under no circumstances do I want Tim and company to have my current email address. I have never been spammed as much as I was after I downloaded their "seven things you have to know" blather.

    dear iguanadon: thanks for the information. i was interested in the magazine, but not at the cost of joining. if i do subscribe, i'll do it via printed check and snail mail. i too, got spammed after my electronic inquiries, but not so badly, and not for too long. i think they just gave up on me when i never responded.

    It's like prima facie evidence... water is wet, fire burns, thieves steal and he is the North AMERICAN distributor for male bovine excrement!

    I've been on their mailing list for probably 3 months now, hence the reason I got the one today. I almost deleted it without reading it but took a peek at it. I only receive 1 email once a week from them on average. Not sure if that's more or less than what others are experiencing. I did go ahead and buy the 1 year subscription. Now we'll see how full my mailbox gets. ;-)

    I'll pass.

    I got bombarded with their marketing campaign before. Too much hyperbole for me. A little to much Piazza-esque.

    All of their products and information are grossly inflated, then they pretend to outrageously slash prices to give you, the extra special customer, the deal of a lifetime that you just can't afford to pass up.

    We have better info right here in this forum.

    I'll be interested to hear if the magazine is any good or just a sales pitch to buy something else. Let us know when you get one.

    I made the mistake of finding them online and joining for "free" and was also bombarded and are still bombarded with Email marketing.
