Frequently Asked Questions

What do I get when I join the USCCA?

The instant you become a USCCA Member, you have access to your trusted legal protection and you can start training right away with your included resources. Your Membership Card will arrive in a few days, followed by the next issue of Concealed Carry Magazine. You also have the power of other protectors like you on your side. You’re now part of a growing community that can help transform you into the strongest and most prepared defender you can be. You’ll gain the confidence required to be your family’s first line of defense.

How will my USCCA Membership help me protect my family?

Your USCCA Membership comes with the trusted legal protection you need to safeguard your family’s future and everything you’ve worked for. Plus, your Membership protects your family members at your residence if they are ever forced to defend themselves. As their protector, you can help them train and prepare.

I don’t carry concealed. Is the USCCA still right for me?

Yes! Your USCCA Membership protects you in a justified act of self-defense, using any legal weapon of opportunity. This means you’re protected whether you have to use your legally concealed handgun or your home-defense tool of choice.

How do I find and choose an attorney?

In the unpredictable aftermath of a self-defense event, you want to know you have the council of someone you can trust. That’s why as a USCCA Member, you get to choose the defense attorney who represents you. Don’t know one? That’s OK: You can select one from our growing network of experienced attorneys from around the country. In the event of a civil suit, representation will be appointed to you.

Do I need my concealed carry permit to join the USCCA?

No! Getting your CCW, CHL or any other type of state-granted concealed carry permit is not required to join the USCCA. However, the training and tools you get with your membership can help you begin your concealed carry journey.

Can I upgrade my level later?

Of course! You can upgrade your membership, add your spouse’s membership, manage your account and billing information, and a lot more in your secure Member Dashboard.

Your USCCA Membership is 100% risk-free with our 365-day, money-back guarantee. Simply call our 24/7 USCCA Team and you’ll receive a prompt and courteous refund.
