    I had Statefarm for ten years. It was a pain most of the time. I had a leak I thought was under my slab and the agent had me file a claim, they denied my claim and then demanded I get a complete inspection of my pipes (ended up only a supply line but tons of damage to my wood floor) and foundation at my expense which was going to cost a ton,
    I felt if they insisted on it they should pay for it especially since all the sudden there was an exclusion in my policy for the issues I had (pulled my original policy and it was not there). I dumped them and hope for nothing major to happen until I can find an affordable solution.

    That is really weird. My Allstate renter's policy allows for $2000 to be claimed for firearms.

    Allstate and State Farm both suck! They are both guilty of cherry-picking and couldn't care less about losing customers. The word loyalty is meaningless. Over the years, I had both and never had a claim, yet I was canceled out because, "they no longer wished to expose themselves to the risk" of my water front home in central Florida that hasn't had hurricane damage since it was built in 1972. In fact, we haven't had a catastrophic storm since the 1920's. While it might be said that we are over due, the reality is, they have not had to pay a penny out in almost 90 yrs. If the State Insurance Department had the guts, they should have run them both out of the State and not let them write the more lucrative auto policies.

So I went to state farm, and I now have all my guns insured separately from the house. I also pay less than what I was for Allstate.
    I have Umbrella Policy from State Farm - 2 mil for about about $150/yr - agent said it covers you on the street for SD acts including use of guns (for Liability - not attorney fees or criminal proceedings)

    We've had State Farm auto and home insurance since 1965. On Memorial Day, 1999 a tornado touched down in our back yard: It tore the house up to the tune of $39,000. State farm had an adjustor at our place the next day. State Farm treated us well. i have an extensive antique Winchester collection that is worth big bucks: State Farms covers it, no questions asked.

    If there's anything to take away from this thread, it seems to be that the quality of agent-drive insurance can vary from agent to agent. Our family has used State Farm w/ the same agent for home and auto for decades, and they've always treated us right. However, I have not tried to insure my guns.

    I asked my state farm agent about this, and he said NO go. They do not cover anything regarding SD. I wonder if its different from state to state.

    State Farm and Allstate are not very popular here in FL. Agent does make a difference,

    But READ your policy and understand what you are and are NOT covered for and to what limit. DOn't wait to have a loss and discover the bad news.

    Does not covering SD also cover damage? For example, if I shoot a perp and have one of those hazardous clean up crews come out to clean up blood and guts from my home, and repair damage like a broken door, window, and possibly other things that may have been hit by my or the perp's lead, will my home insurance cover that? Maybe it'd be best to ask the agent.

    Having a written and photo inventory is a good idea. That way you can prove what you owned in the event you need to make a claim.

    they figure ... you OWN GUNS ...... you don't need an alarm, and should give you a discount on your house policy for "theft" coverage.

    I have had no issues with Nationwide (Dale Earnhardt's Brand) for 12 years and have riders for lots of stuff way over what you are thinking about million plus for shooting someone dead in defense of my house. No Issues, just pay the premium..... You need to talk to your agent about what you need. I'm not an Insurance agent, and have not played one on TV, but I have played a Chef on TV!

    I had a burglary in February and lost ten pistols, a dozen extra mags, and some ammo with a combined value of well over $7500. My company has a limit of $3000 on guns and gun related items, so that's what I got. It wasn't just the guns - $2000 in cash was also taken, but their limit there was $300. I got a quote from ArmsCare Plus, the NRA carrier, for a $10000 policy for $104 annually. However. since I have a claim pending, I'm going to wait to see how that is handled before I buy the extra insurance from them.
