USCCA Membership Levels and Benefits Checklist

USCCA levels and benefits check list

The USCCA (United States Concealed Carry Association) offers the very best in Concealed Carry Training, education and Legal Protection in 3 different levels of membership. Each level offers different benefits, increasing with price.

Below is a comprehensive chart comparing the Gold, Platinum and Elite levels of membership and the benefits each one offers.

Here is a quick overview of each level:

USCCA Gold Membership

The USCCA Gold Membership is a great way to get started with all the incredible training and education available from the USCCA. This is the lower level of legal protection for only $22 per month. See the USCCA Membership Costs.

This is an incredibly affordable way to get the peace of mind that comes with top-notch training, knowledge and legal protection should you need it. I know several USCCA members that joined at the Gold level and after they saw what was available in the way of training and education, they wanted more. They simply picked up the phone and called the award-winning customer support team and upgraded their membership to the next level.

USCCA Platinum Membership

The USCCA Platinum Membership is the most popular membership simply because it offers a lot more benefits and the legal protection limits are much higher for only $8 more per month. In my opinion the Platinum level is perfect for those who want a considerable amount of legal protection but also desire to become skillful, proficient and knowledgeable about all things related to concealed carry.

Coming in at only $30 per month, you get access to a vast amount of training, 5 years of back issues of the award winning Concealed Carry Magazine, a vast library of training videos and enough concealed carry education to keep you learning for months.

USCCA Elite Membership

The USCCA Elite level Membership is for those that want the very best of absolutely everything that the USCCA has to offer. This level of membership, at $47 per month is still about what you would pay for one nice steak dinner and yet provide you with an incredibly valuable all-around membership package. You will have access to the entire video library, the complete vault of guides, e-books, e-learning and access to every single issue ever published of the award winning Concealed Carry Magazine.

Check out all the additional benefits in the chart below. This is the ultimate package and the resources are vast, so if you want absolutely everything in your USCCA package, the USCCA Elite Membership is for you!

USCCA Spouse Coverage

Every level of membership also covers your spouse (or other relative living in your residence) for acts of self defense while in or on your premises. This also applies to anyone under the age of 21 that is in your care. It is important to note that coverage is only while in or on your “residence premises”. To get coverage for your spouse for concealed carry away from your premises, there is a USCCA spouse discount, which is detailed in the chart below.

More information is available on the USCCA Membership Activation page.
