I've recently completed my application for Illinois Concealed Carry.  While I have insurance to cover legal costs in the event that I have to take some type of action, the cost of any litigation is likely to be financially crippling.  A friend of mine in law enforcement passed along teh CCW Safe, a legal service for those who carry.  It's national legal defense in the event you have to take action.  For $130 per year, it's great coverage.  http://ccwsafe.com/

Welcome, James.

You are being hazed.

This has been discussed here before.

Many times!

 

My own opinion:

All insurance is gambling.

The house will win, not the insured.

If you think you are going to need insurance, maybe not carry a gun.

 

Others beleive some coverage is worth the cost for peace of mind.

 

I think you would be better served putting that $130 and whatever you paid for your other legal assistance into a great holster, ammo, another gun, range time, flowers for your wife, movie with the kids, cigarettes for the homeless...

 

Here's to hoping you never need to draw your gun nor fire it in your world.


Life is a cooperative venture... That's what makes it work.

Given Illinois Law provides civil liability protection for justified self defense actions, I'll put the money to better/more holsters/ammo/training. EOM

Welcome to IllinoisCarry, James!  As you can see there are two trains of thought on the insurance, those who see no need and those who believe you can't be too careful and the insurance is worth it if you can afford it.

 

Thanks for sharing the info!
