The first-ever NRA Carry Guard Expo was held August 25-27, 2017 at the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee. More than 14,000 visitors attend the Expo, billed as the ultimate assembly of education, training, and products dedicated to concealed carry, personal protection, and home defense. While this is not a handgun-focused website, we know that many of our readers have carry permits, and probably the vast majority own a pistol or two.

At the Expo, over 160 Exhibitors displayed their latest product lines for concealed carry, personal protection and home defense. The exhibit floor spread across nearly 100,000 square feet of the Wisconsin Center.

One Expo highlight was a seminar which covered the Utah Concealed Carry Weapon Course. Utah’s Concealed Carry Permit is now recognized in 60% of the USA, with 33 other states granting reciprocity. Seminar participants who completed the course left the Expo with enhanced abilities to protect themselves while traveling. The 4-hour seminar was hosted by Dave Matthews.

Many experts consider the Heckler & Kock P7m8 one of the very best carry pistols ever. On HK’s famous fixed-barrel “squeeze-cocker”, the striker is cocked by squeezing the grip, and then de-cocked when pressure on the grip is released.
