    Every time I see this thread I get angry that the state I live in will not allow me to buy carry insurance!!

    Lucian, you should move next door. Over here. Don’t tell your neighbors though!

    For those who may consider the cost of a USCCA Gold membership to be 'too much', also consider the following...

    6 Things You Didn't Know Would Happen When the Police Arrive
    http://uscca-downloads.s3.amazonaws.com/reports/6_things_happen_when_police_arrive.pdf

    Unfortunately, in today's world, even if you're 'in the right', defending a 'good shoot' can cost well in excess of $100,000... a 'questionable shoot' can cost much more. o_O

    To prepare for such an expenditure by saving $30/month, allowing the untouched balance to compound at current savings rates, one would have to save for about 135 years.

    If you own firearms and fully intend to use them in self defense, are you truly prepared for the financial ramifications of doing so? :rolleyes:

    Food for thought... :)

    Best regards,

    Bob

    I would carry the highest I could afford. You insure your car, boat, house, etc. If not for a state restriction, why not insure carrying of a lethal weapon!!

    Just wondering on here who has carry insurance through uscca. Is it worth it? Any class requirements to be covered?

    yes, I do, yes imo, and no. They actually offer free online training. I just did a sheepdog response online class in threat awareness, which was $125 w/o membership, and free with it. As for "worth it", well, if you never need it, it's money you could have saved, but dang I'd hate to have to use force against a threat without it. Potentially the difference between keeping your house and losing everything. I'm covered, but my wife is covered despite no permit or uscca membership, as long as she was using force on a threat inside the home. Any legal weapon covered, gun, knife, kitchen sink....

    Thanks for the info, i was just curious because i saw on the online training certification that there was a level 1 shooting class (requirement)


    Do they cover you only in the home or anywhere it is legal to conceal carry?

    Coverage is - as with all coverage, no matter if it is a homeowner’s policy or losing your guns in a horrible boating accident- it depends. However, you are generally covered in the event you have to discharge a weapon.

    I am not a lawyer and am not an expert in the law or insurance.

    I know USCCA has individuals online (24/7?) that are willing and able to answer any questions you might have about membership. I have been an elite member for a few years. Yes, I think it’s worth it.

    As a member I am covered everywhere. As a non member but a spouse sharing same home my wife gets covered in our home.
    It seems after conversing with them, that if you had legal issues besides the fact you used force, the side charges would be part of the court battle, and your coverage goes mainly for the lawyers. Just my understanding of what I was told.
    I recently got in touch with them on behalf of another member on this board who was in the process of getting a permit but did not have it yet, and was told the above. Court defense, bond and lawsuits....

    You are not required to take any training to be a member.

    Not yet. But, I get up to two emails everyday with another “great” offer to join. Maybe his persistence will pay off and I’ll join just to shut him up.
