We Help Responsible Americans Keep Their Loved Ones Safe


Since the launch of our flagship publication Concealed Carry Magazine in 2004, the goal of the USCCA has been to provide resources that are easy to find and easier to use for anyone who wants to stay safe and avoid danger. Today, our community isn’t only permit holders. We are more than 500,000 single moms, military veterans, grandparents, college students … Americans from every faith, political stance and every walk of life. We’re a community of responsible Americans like you.

"If it is to be, it's up to me..."

“The USCCA was born more than 20 years ago, when I became a father for the first time. It wasn’t an easy journey, but it was worth it. Along the way, I had my Dad’s words of wisdom, a little bit of eagerness and a whole lot of resilience on my side. Now you can uncover the whole behind-the-scenes — and sometimes hard to swallow — truth of the U.S. Concealed Carry Association…”

Helping Responsible Americans Keep Their Families Safe


If you’re like us and want to keep your loved ones safe and avoid danger, and you believe in your right to self-defense, the USCCA is for you. The USCCA offers the three things to help you on your journey to confidence and preparedness:

Access industry-leading education that’ll prepare you to know exactly what to do if something crazy happens, whether in public or in your very own home. Develop situational awareness skills, sharpen your defensive mindset, build a home defense plan and easily break down the laws that apply to you.

With expert-led training you can easily access at home, or apply to live-fire drills on the range, you’ll be able to build a foundation for success and be ready when it counts most. USCCA Members are trained to first rely on non-lethal de-escalation tactics, and to only use their gun as an absolute last resort.

The USCCA helps responsible Americans like you prepare for what happens before, during and after an act of lawful self-defense. In addition to offering education and training, the USCCA has purchased an insurance policy that provides the association and its members with self defense liability insurance.

  • 100% American-Based

Delta Defense, LLC, the operating company of the USCCA, is headquartered in West Bend, WI and employs more than 450 fellow USCCA Members. We strive to make your USCCA Membership seamless and effortless by providing a primarily digital experience, allowing you instant online access to your training tools and resources.
