    Concealed Carry Magazine??

    So I was wondering who all is a member and recieves that magazine... I was thinking of joining, and if you join now you get like 24 free back issues.. Also if I join now, at the end of the year I can get my $69 back in form of a gift card to their store... So is it worth the $69..

    I've taken it for several years now and there's a lot of good info in it. Most, or similar, information can be found in other gun mags, but with CCM you get all the info (carry issues, training resources, products and other CC related stuff) in one place rather than searching through a dozen different sources.

    It's a "by subscription only" magazine so you can't simply buy a single issue from your local Wally-World or gun shop to see what's in it. You can always try it and if it's not what you want, don't renew. BTW, I believe the $69 also includes a membership in the USCCA (United States Concealed Carry Association).

    I got the monthly rate and love it. There are lots of articles that were very educational, and a good guide to products out there for us armed citizens. They have a pretty good forum also.

    Compared with some mag' sub's it can seem rather steep but - this is a specialist publication very much ''for us'' - and while no longer a fledgling venture (must be about three years now, probably four) .. it is still growing and needs to grow more.

    The USCCA is also a part of this and needs to grow more too. Tim does a weekly newsletter on the site for members and this and the whole package do IMO represent good value - the cost seems high mainly in a relative sense.

    I would suggest that if anyone can afford it they will not only be getting good material but, further helping in a sense our never-ending RKBA battle.

    Just my 2c, as a member.

    Plus, there are some very handsome cover shots.

    I've never been able to find this magazine on the rack. Where do you find it?

    It is incredibly expensive to operate a magazine; most publications fail within two years because they can't afford to operate. Printing, distribution, and other costs aren't covered if there aren't enough subscribers and advertisers. So CCM is expensive now - but in a few years, when more people subscribe and there's more advertisers, the cost for the reader should be more reasonable.

    I was a member, loved the magazine, but did not find much of interest in the Forum, so now I just get the magazine. It is less then $69, but can't recall what the rate for the magazine is.

    I subscribed for a year and actually spoke highly of it initially. As I got more issues found the content to be amateurish in some cases, included info that was pretty commonly found elsewhere, plus it was very pricey, so I dropped it.

    Not worth it in my opinion.

    I subscribe and enjoy the magazine and the weekly tip of the week. I subscribe on a monthly basis so the cost doesn't seem so bad.

    Is this the magazine you are refering to?

    http://www.usconcealedcarry.com/

    If so it is well worth the money if you are mainly interested in CC issues, guns, and equipment. You will not find articles about fishing, rifles, hunting, or anything that does not pertain to CC. That makes it worth the price in my book as I don't read half of other magazines that are priced less. I read this one cover to cover.

    Good magazine, though I find little time to surf their website. Not sure I want to buy tee-shirt, hats, or bump/window stickers that tell the world I'm carrying a gun from the gift store.
