USCCA Membership differs from concealed carry insurance in that it offers a broader range of benefits beyond self-defense liability coverage. While a concealed carry insurance company may provide a card and phone number for emergencies, the USCCA’s benefits extend far beyond that, prioritizing top-notch self-defense education and training, in addition to connecting members to a network of like-minded individuals and offering friendly, first-rate customer support. These are benefits that traditional insurance providers do not offer.

Comprehensive Training and Education Resources 

The USCCA stands as an industry leader in gun safety, situational awareness and self-defense education. It provides valuable information on legal matters, current events and the concealed carry lifestyle, preparing you for what you might encounter before, during and after an act of self-defense. While responsibly armed citizens hope to avoid the use of deadly force, USCCA Members can trust in their superior training to respond quickly, confidently and appropriately should the need arise to stop a threat. 

In-Person Classes 

For in-person training, the USCCA offers access to a nationwide network of over 250 USCCA Partner ranges, 3,000 USCCA Certified Instructors and 1,000 classes. Class topics range from Concealed Carry & Home Defense Fundamentals to Women’s Handgun & Self-Defense Fundamentals to Emergency-First Aid Fundamentals. This wide range of training options allows you to choose the ideal range, instructor and course to suit your individual needs and preferences.

Reciprocity Resources

The USCCA Concealed Carry Reciprocity Map & U.S. Gun Laws page is an essential tool for understanding concealed carry and self-defense laws in every state. This resource is designed to assist you in navigating the complexities of each state’s laws, providing detailed information on where you can and cannot carry your firearm. The Reciprocity by USCCA App offers the convenience of personalizing your reciprocity map and is available on both the App Store and Google Play.

Self-Defense Liability Insurance

No one desires to find themselves in a situation where the only option is violent self-defense, whether involving a gun or otherwise — but it happens. The USCCA is there to assist and support responsibly armed Americans, like yourself, through the daunting and overwhelming aftermath of a self-defense incident.

The USCCA helps responsible Americans prepare for all aspects of a self-defense situation. In addition to providing education and training, the USCCA has purchased an insurance policy that provides the association and its members with self-defense liability insurance.*

Red Flag Laws

Your USCCA Membership benefits can assist you in any Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO) challenges, typically known as “red flag” laws. This will help you keep and continue to exercise your Second Amendment rights!

Court Records

In most states, records associated with a self-defense incident remain in the public domain. Having a USCCA Membership helps you expunge and/or seal those records. The charges (even when you’re found innocent) don’t cloud up your record, so you can put the whole ordeal behind you for good.

Recovery & Recoupment

The policy, purchased by the USCCA from Delta Defense, LLC and provided by Universal Fire & Casualty Insurance Company (UFCIC), has never recovered or recouped any funds from a USCCA Member. There are some states that require a Recovery & Recoupment clause within contracts as insurance can’t legally cover a crime. This is a compulsory clause that will only be enforced if a government agency has forced the Insurer to act. [You can read more about the policy purchased from Delta Defense, LLC here

Are USCCA Member Benefits Impartial?

USCCA Membership benefits after a self-defense incident are not determined by the insurance company (UFCIC) or the USCCA’s provider, Delta Defense, LLC. UFCIC is contractually required to grant coverage as long as your defense attorney believes in good faith that your self-defense claim is legitimate and the judge allows your attorney to make that argument in court until a final, non-appealable finding of guilt is reached.

Can USCCA Members Choose Their Own Attorneys?

A USCCA Member can select his or her own attorney, with only two restrictions:

  1. The selected attorney has the necessary professional experience to defend the USCCA Member.
  2. The selected attorney agrees to the customary rates, reporting and billing guidelines from UFCIC.

Who Is Delta Defense, LLC?
