USCCA Trial Membership
A common question regarding the USCCA is if there is a Trial Membership available. I will answer this and other questions in this article.
What is a Trial Membership?
The United States Concealed Carry Association is the largest company in America that is focused on the education, training and legal and financial protection for responsible gun owners. Membership in the USCCA entitles you to the best up to date information available regarding concealed carry, self defense and home defense. You can try out any of the Memberships risk-free thanks to the USCCA Bulletproof 365 Day Guarantee. The USCCA does not call it a “trial membership”, but if you are not satisfied with your membership within the first year, call customer support and request a refund. This is the best kind of “trial membership” you will find anywhere!
Looking for a Less Expensive Option For Self Defense Insurance?
The USCCA is an excellent company that focuses on training and education, but if you just want Self Defense Insurance, there are less expensive options.
Here is a company worth looking into. Firearms Legal Protection pays UNCAPPED attorneys fees up front. Plans start at $14.95 per month (readers of my blog get special rates starting at $9.95/mo. Just use the code DMONYER at checkout)
FLP is highly regarded and recommended by some of the top names in the self defense firearms industry. At least check them out before you make a decision.
Military & Veteran Discount
The USCCA is proud to offer a Military & Veteran discount on all memberships. After you activate your membership through the link below, simply send an email or open a chat with a friendly USCCA support specialist and they will apply your 10% Military Discount. Thank you for your service!
The USCCA Memberships provide a discount if you want to add your spouse to your membership at a fraction of the cost. For example, the USCCA Platinum Membership is $39 per month and you can add your spouse for just $19 per month additional. This is the plan I personally have for my wife and I. The Gold Membership is $29 per month and the spouse add-on is $14 additional. The top package, the USCCA Elite Membership allows a spouse to be added for $24 per month additional.
The main benefits of any USCCA membership is the legal protection. Should you ever need to use force or deadly force against an attacker to protect yourself or your family, the USCCA has your back. See the article: USCCA Concealed Carry Insurance and Legal Protection
Whenever deadly force is used, there WILL be an investigation.
Even if you are completely innocent and used your firearm to protect yourself, until the police complete their investigation and figure out exactly what happened, it is possible that you will be detained and/or arrested.
It is critical that when the police roll up to the scene, that you know what to say and what not to say. This is where the USCCA comes in. If you ever find yourself in this situation, simply call the hotline (available 24/7/365) and a highly trained specialist will walk you through exactly what you need to do and get you in immediate contact with a criminal defense attorney.
How Does a USCCA Membership Help in an Emergency?
If you ever need to use your firearm or other deadly weapon to defend yourself or your family, there are two things you need to do immediately afterwards:
- Call 911
- Call the USCCA Critical Response Team (24/7/365)
Calling 911 immediately after any self-defense encounter is the most important thing that you can do. However, you need to know exactly what to say and what not to say in this recorded conversation. The USCCA will provide you with this critical information and it is even printed on your membership card so you have it with you at all times. This will be a highly stressful phone call and most people do not even remember what they say during these moments.
Speaking to the USCCA Critical Response Team will help you know what to expect next. They will instruct you on what to say to the police, and they will immediately get you in touch with a criminal defense attorney.
