Concealed Carry University: Who We Are, and What We (will) Do:

Coming Soon: The Armed Self-Defense Education of a Lifetime

During 2013, we created The Armed American’s Complete Concealed Carry Guide to Effective Self-Defense. We (humbly, of course) believe it’s the single best (most efficient and effective) education tool available for those with no familiarity to moderate familiarity, in terms of bringing them to an advanced level of confidence and competence with their handguns. The Complete Concealed Carry Guide was launched to availability on May 1st, 2014 – and we are certain it will take our country by storm.

Our plan is to use this ground-breaking and revolutionary training system as our means of building the foundations of a relationship (trust, respect, and value) with as many Armed Americans as possible during the summer of 2014, and, in the fall of 2014 using the capital raised by selling the Complete Concealed Carry Guide, begin working to create educational “installments” that will further educate, assist, and train those who have already gone through the Complete Concealed Carry Guide.

Future planned at-home courses include:

> Handgun Handling 101: From “Never Touched a Gun” to Confidence and Proficiency in 90 minutes

> 2 Hours With a World-Class American Self-Defense Attorney: What Everyone Who Carries a Gun Must Know About the Legal System

> Fighting From Within Vehicles: How Guns, Bullets, and Bodies Interact During Exterior-to-Interior and Interior-to-Exterior Vehicular Combat

> The Portrait of a Killer: 90 Uncomfortable (but Infinitely Valuable and Important) Minutes Inside the Mind of a Convicted Killer

> Fighting with Family Present: How Being With Family When Attacked Must Change Your Fighting Dynamics

> Advanced Handgun Combat Accessories: How Destructive Are The Gimmicks, and How Useful Are The Innovations?

This is only the beginning.

We’re completely committed to you: the Armed American, and we cannot wait to see where this journey takes us. Please: advance with us!


Who Am I?

My name is Patrick Kilchermann. I grew up in Western Michigan, and despite having lived in several states, I’ve returned to Michigan’s beautiful lake-shore wilderness to plant my roots and raise my family. I’m young, conservative, motivated, and passionate. While I believe the family should be at the center of all life (and while I believe a lack of Family as a priority is the cause of 90% of our country’s problems), I am committed to a few basic principals in life. These are each things that I believe I’ve been called to use my lifetime to advance:

– Community, Family, and Faith.

– Self-Reliance and Individual Responsibility.

– Service.

– Honor & Loyalty.

Each one of these ideals has effected my decision to build Concealed Carry University, but above and beyond all others is Service. I believe in callings (call them vocations, purposes- anything you wish) because I’ve always felt called to serve. As far back as I can remember, while my classmates were idolizing NBA and MLB stars, I idolized war and police heroes. Men like Dick Winters and Chesty Puller. That is who I wanted to become. Yes, I’ve always felt called to serve, and the older I get, the better I listen to this call.

I do not think I’m alone. As someone who carries concealed, I’ll bet you feel called to serve as well. Maybe even to serve your community, state, or country? But if not, at least to your family, yourself, and those innocent people fortunate enough to be near you when lives are threatened. If you feel this same call, then you know where I’m coming from. You know my motivations for building a place like Concealed Carry University.

If you have the urge to serve, I consider you  a warrior. If you believe that you have it in you to carry and use your handgun to protect and preserve innocent human life – then I consider you a warrior.

And serving you – serving American warriors – is my true calling in life. Whether you’re an armed civilian or a police officer, my heart is with you, and my focus is on equipping you emotionally, mentally, and physically for the concealed carry lifestyle – and ultimately, for facing a violent attacker(s).
