I have been around firearms my whole life, but just getting into the concealed carry genre. I live in Texas as I am sure most know, you have to take a 10 hour class and meet multiple other requirements before a license is issued. As I am out of the state on business at the moment, I am scheduled to take my class the first week of March and look forward to joining the concealed carry fold to protect my family and myself.
I've been doing a lot of research on the subject (character flaw probably), but I came across the forum while rearching another organziation, USCCA. The concept seems sound, but the dues seem high. All of the "bonus" material I believe can be found elsewhere, but my main reason at really looking at a membership was for the gold shield protection. It makes complete sense to have some level of legal protection in the event that you do have to discharge your weapon in a defensive manner and with all of the frivelous civil lawsuits as of late, it seems to make sense.
Long story short, does anyone else buy into this or other "protection" plans, has anyone actually had to use it, and if not USCCA, who?
Thanks and I look forward to learning what I can here and providing value to the community and it's applicable.
Oh, and my conceal carry is a Glock 39 using an IWB Milt Sparks Versa Max II.
