Becoming a UKPSA Member brings many benefits:
As a UKPSA member you will have access to high quality safety training which is provided by a network of certified and experienced trainers at locations all over the country.
Competitors who wish to compete internationally at IPSC matches require sign-off from their region of residence, if you live in Britain this means joining the UKPSA, so your membership could be the start of a travel adventure as well as a new sport and a great way to meet new shooting friends!
Another benefit is that members are able to exchange tips and news via the UKPSA Forum as well as accessing information about upcoming matches, results and courses. All new members are supplied with a User Name and Password to access this information and help them get involved.
UKPSA membership includes insurance to cover your shooting activities.
Following a members vote at the 2021 AGM, firearms membership will include FAC/SGC revocation insurance from April 2021 and the membership fees have been increased to cover this additional cost.
Members can opt into the UKPSA Rewards Card for discounts on shopping, read more on the Rewards Card page.
The UKPSA is committed to developing the sport of Practical Shooting in Britain and in developing teams in all IPSC Disciplines, Divisions and Categories to compete internationally at events including IPSC European Championships and IPSC World Shoots.

If you are a lapsed member (membership lapsed by more than 1 year), you must reapply by completing the Renewal Form for Lapsed Members. This is now built into the membership application process, but for the less computer literate, there is also a ‘paper’ form that you can download here as a PDF Lapsed Member Form
The membership application process is effectively split into three stages:
– Stage 1: sign up on the GoMembership platform.
– Stage 2: from sign up, you will get a splash screen to actually apply for membership. If you do not do this straight away, you can access the relevant page by clicking MEMBERSHIP from the top of your screen. Most members will apply for Individual membership, click the tile, then answer the additional questions that appear at the bottom of the screen, then click the button at the bottom to go through to the checkout to pay for your membership.
– Stage 3: upload your credentials such as FAC or reference. Click on MY PROFILE from the top of the screen, then the Credentials button is the bottom of the four ’tiles’ on the left of the MY PROFILE screen. Just click the Add Credentials button and follow the prompts. You can upload more than one credential, so if you have passed a UKPSA safety course, fill in those details and upload the certificate.
Please be aware that the membership application process requires that all applications are approved by Council. That can only be done when you have paid your membership and submitted all required documents, so it is far from instantaneous!
