The Armed Citizen Alliance, Inc. today announced the inaugural National Armed Citizen Challenge (NAC2), which will be held September 21-23, 2012, at PASA Park near Barry, Illinois.

The annual NAC2 is a “Sports Fair for the Armed Citizen,” and is open to the public.  It is the first such national event of its kind.

  • There will be vendor displays, demos, and hands-on firearms product tryout opportunities offered by ACA sponsors, partners, and supporting manufacturers.
  • Nationally-qualified instructors and trainers will provide instruction in defense firearms use, and offer situational-awareness and mental-preparedness training.
  • There will be on-site classes that can qualify participants for concealed carry licenses in any state with enabling legislation.
  • There will be also be recreational events, and a 12-stage “Challenge” which ACA members may enter using their own concealed-carry firearms, with awards for individual performance to those who participate.

According to ACA President Todd Jarrett, “The essence of the ACA Challenge is to offer real-world-based defense scenarios to ordinary Armed Citizens, whereby they can develop familiarity and confidence with their concealed-carry firearms, and be better prepared to deal properly with a dangerous situation should it confront them.”

The scenarios introduced at the inaugural Challenge will form the basis of ACA Practice & Confidence exercises that will be available nationwide at ACA-affiliated shooting ranges and gun clubs, and which Armed Citizens can practice anywhere they can shoot.  ACA Executive Vice President Dick Metcalf states, “The Challenge is not anything like a typical shooting competition.  It’s a ‘survival training’ exercise for ordinary folks disguised as recreation.  All taking place in the context and atmosphere of a late-summer County Fair for Armed Citizens—but on a national scale.”

Entry fee for public admission to the NAC2 grounds will be $10 per person per day.  ACA members may enter grounds free upon proof of ACA membership.  NAC2 training classes, courses, and optional recreational events will have separate enrollment fees.  Pre-registration for classes will be available online at beginning July 15th.  Participation in the 12-stage ACA Challenge component of the event is open to ACA Members only, and is limited to 220 entries, first-come, first-served..  Entry fee is $100.  Details of the Challenge and downloadable entry forms are currently available thru the ACA website.
