Mike Lowney

Executive Director and Chairman of the Board


Everyone has asked themselves at some point, “what is my purpose in life?” 

For some of us, it’s advancing in our careers. For others, it’s traveling the world and learning new skills. But for me, and so many Americans from coast to coast, it’s protecting my family and its legacy.

I never planned on leading an organization like USCCA-FSL. At one point, I found myself on the fast-track as a leader in one of America’s most iconic companies. But when I realized that I could spend every day working towards my own purpose in life, and help protect my fellow Americans’ ability to pursue theirs… I knew I had to take that chance. 

That’s why I’m here, leading an organization that works every day to advance the right of responsible Americans to protect their families. Their legacies. 

Our mission at USCCA-FSL is about much more than the right to bear arms. It’s about affirming that intrinsic feeling we’re all born with – the instinct to protect those we love. 

When faced with a life-or-death situation, we need to find the most efficient way to defend our families. That most efficient tool will almost always be a firearm. 

That’s why we’re working towards a future supporting responsible American gun owners. A future that makes it easier for Americans to provide the most basic of needs to those they love…safety and security.  

In my role as chairman, I will ensure that we never deviate from our mission: to empower Americans to take that step to safely become their family’s ultimate protector.
