Just when you thought we were all out of announcements for the NRA Carry Guard Expo, here comes another one. And if somewhere in the back of your mind you were disappointed that there wouldn’t be a place for firearm drills in the setting of the Wisconsin Center, we’ve got some good news! The latest addition to the special events lineup is the Ultimate Training Munitions (UTM) Interactive Area.
UTM offers groundbreaking training ammunition that offers a safe and easy alternative to live fire. With firearm conversions that can be implemented in seconds, this ammo provides the opportunity to break free of the confines of the range. The technology was formerly only available to military and law enforcement trainers, but due to a partnership with the NRA, it is becoming accessible to ordinary gun owners. And you’ll have the chance to experience it in person if you attend the NRA Carry Guard Expo!
UTM offers groundbreaking training ammunition that offers a safe and easy alternative to live fire.Of course, we know that live-fire training is an essential part of mastering shooting. But UTM will allow NRA-certified instructors to complement live fire with a safe alternative that doesn’t have to be limited to the range. So say goodbye to concerns about cost, space availability and the intimidating atmosphere of the range for newbies.
We don’t have many details yet about what the activities at the UTM Interactive Area will entail, but it goes without saying that this will be worth a look. UTM is aiming for a major shakeup of how firearms training works—with the weight of the NRA behind it—so whether you’re an instructor yourself or an interested student, this is something you’re going to be hearing more about.
The NRA Carry Guard Expo will take place Aug. 25-27 in Milwaukee; tickets are available here. The event is open to everyone and will feature discounted tickets for NRA members. NRA Life members and Carry Guard members get in FREE.
