REPORTS | NEWS & NOTES
Carry Guard Expo
dmission tickets are now available for the inaugural NRA Carry Guard Expo, Aug. 25-27, 2017, in
Milwaukee, Wis., providing three days of education and interaction for concealed-carry practitioners and
defensive-minded citizens. The tickets enable access to the
exhibit hall and free educational content spanning multiple
topics relating to self-defense and concealed carry.
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 own kit.
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.
The expo will also feature a seminar entitled "Current And
Emerging Threats: How They Affect You," taught by personalprotection expert Steve Tarani. Tarani has worked with the
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 being an active protective services agent.
These seminars and more are available for no extra
charge at the NRA Carry Guard Expo. Admission for nonNRA 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 at etix.com.
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.
Additional fee-based seminars, including a Brazilian jiujitsu 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 nracarryguardexpo.com
