The USCCA Story

By Tim Schmidt // 02/28/2014

 

Dear Fellow Responsibly Armed American,

Well… it finally happened.

That’s right.

I succumbed to the siren call of Hollywood.

I’m not joking!

Now, before you jump to conclusions, you need to hear the WHOLE story.

(This is the West Point version of the Hollywood Story!)

I’ve known for a long time now that I’ve needed to figure out a way to capture the “USCCA Story” on film. I’ve often thought to myself, “If I could only tell the real USCCA story in a short, 5-minute video, well that would make all the difference.”

About 4 months ago, the story began.

One of my long-time, Delta/USCCA team members, Steve Fischer, mentioned to me that a close friend of his daughter was a movie director and producer in Los Angeles.

My initial reaction was, “Well, keep me away from THAT guy!” I wanted nothing to do with anyone from Hollywood or Los Angeles. Period.

But Steve persisted…

He has a way of doing that. Heck, he used to be a U.S. Army drill instructor and a former instructor at West Point Academy!

He explained to me, “Tim, this guy is different. He’s not some anti-gun, lefty wing-nut. He’s a GOOD guy. He believes in what we believe in.”

“Okay. We’ll see,” I said.

And so it began. This was how the USCCA got hooked up with one of the FEW pro-gun guys in Hollywood.

Their crew arrived at the USCCA headquarters in West Bend, WI on December 15, 2013. Hmm… Bill of Rights Day. This must be a good sign!

Well, the next 7 days was a blur. Their film crew showed up and took over our HQ. It was an amazing experience. These guys were TRUE professionals!

And after a month of editing, adjustments, etc., I couldn’t be more proud to present to you the final product. Here’s the five-minute video that covers ten years of USCCA history!

I hope you like it.

Take Care and Stay Safe,
