No. That's probably the least likely insurance policy I'm going to be shopping for.
No. I'm in Texas - if it's a justifiable shoot, they can't sue you. If it isn't, the insurance won't pay anyway.

I feel this is insurance for people who feel they never have enough insurance. Not knocking the named, specific insurance above, just carry insurance in general. For those that end up using it, I'm sure it's great. But chances are most of their customers aren't going to ever have to use it.
Yes. I am a member of the Armed Citizens' Legal Defense Network. I have heard and read too many horror stories of folks who have been ruined financially and even ended up in jail or prison after a justified self defense firearms use. Even though the county I live in is rural, conservative and gun friendly and I probably wouldn't have any problem here, the adjoining county and everything to my north has the same anti-gun attitude as San Francisco. If, God forbid, I do need to use my firearm to protect my or someone else's life, then I want an attorney well schooled in 2nd Amendment rights at my side ASAP. I don't skimp on home or auto insurance. Why would I begrudge myself the 50 cents a day it costs to belong to the Network? The saying "Penny wise and pound foolish" comes to mind.
We had a thread on this and it was decided that what you got from the insurance is not what you think.
Note to OP Administrator: Perhaps it would be good to search the older threads on a subject - particularly one like this - before starting a new one that you put as front and center on your home page?We had a thread on this
Personal response: I read the NRA write up about their sponsored coverage and it seemed to be better than most out there IF you decide this kind of insurance is what you want or need.
Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!
Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.
We have a lot of new members here now, so we thought it was probably time to revisit the topic. I even forget some things occasionally.

I think it's ridiculous that the NRA is offering insurance at all. I'd rather them just lobby for our rights instead of becoming a for profit organization. JMO.
I bought it because so many people said no....I just have to be different............I don't even like it but I bought it......
Is that pistol a CZ photo-shopped to remove its markings ??? nice looking piece
If I lived in a communist anti gun state like Mass, maybe. Fortunately I live in a free state that actually encourages self defense, so no.

When I die, I want to go like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep, not kicking and screaming like the passengers in his car.
Pretty sure my insurance guy would like to sell it to me if he knew I carried.
