USCCA Membership Levels and Benefits

USCCA Membership Costs, 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, or tier, offers different benefits, increasing with price.

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

Here is a quick overview of each level:

**Update 10/15/20. USCCA has just increased the benefits on ALL levels and completely revamped the online training. Please go to this link to see all the new features!

USCCA vs. Firearms Legal Protection

FLP (Firearms Legal Protection) is a less expensive alternative to the USCCA Membership. FLP does not provide the level of training that is found in a USCCA membership, rather they provide UNCAPPED legal defense insurance to fight for your freedom after a self defense event using a firearm.

The rates are considerably less than USCCA as their primary focus is on providing legal services. Check them out at this link and readers of my blog get discounted rates starting at $9.95 per month. You must use Code DMONYER at checkout.

USCCA Gold Level 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 training and concealed carry education for only $29 per month or $25 per month if paid annually. 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 Level Membership

The USCCA Platinum Membership is the most popular membership simply because it offers a lot more training and educational resources for only $10 more per month. In my opinion the Platinum level is perfect for those who desire to become skillful, proficient and knowledgeable about all things related to concealed carry.

Coming in at only $39 per month, or $34 per month if paid annually, 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.

Also just added is Levels 1 and 2 of the New USCCA Protector Academy.

USCCA Elite Level 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 $49 per month, or $42 per month if paid annually, 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 Membership Discount

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.

  1. Hello there! This is an awesome review you have got here. One major feature I enjoy in USCCA Membership is that the membership is backed by the USCCA 365-day, 100% money-back Bulletproof Guarantee, as you can simply call to request a prompt and courteous refund  If you decide the USCCA isn’t for you,

    • evans211,

  2. Want to change my membership level from PLATINUM to GOLD. It was just auto-renewed so please refund/credit the difference in the membership premiums to my credit card. For more information, please email me at

    Thank you, Mark
