The Skinny On USCCA Liability Product Memberships, Coverage, 2019 Reviews, Cost & Testimonials
You may be wondering what the acronym USCCA stands for, well without further ado… it stands for the United States Concealed Carry Association. Concealed Carry is their primary business and they also offer some really cool services and products. The USCCA has certified instructors that teach USCCA Defensive Shooting Fundamentals, they offer a USCCA Instructor Toolkit, USCCA eLearning courses and they have a USCCA Portal. They also offer one of the best in class liability insurance products for gun owners. When you carry the USCCA membership card in your wallet, you carry a very strong weapon against criminals who attempt to impose on your liberties. USCCA’s mission is protecting law abiding citizens who are forced to use their firearms or other legal weapons to defend themselves. In the article, The 3 Best Liability Plans For Gun Owners and Concealed Carriers USCCA is profiled and recognized as one of the best liability products for gun owners. As a card carrying member, I am willing to go a step further and call it the best of the best. Below you will find accounts from real self-defense encounters that USCCA.com originally published. The one thing I want you to ask yourself, do I want to go through these harrowing experiences, then risk loss of assets, loss of freedoms, prosecution, and civil lawsuits? If the answer is no, and I strongly suspect the answer will be no—then you need USCCA.
True Life Stories:
Kicked In: Florida Mobile Home Residents Fight Off Invaders
Three Glen St. Mary men were asleep in their mobile home at 4am on a Sunday morning when someone outside shouted, “Sheriff’s Office!” Their door then burst open, and a masked man entered and opened fire. The residents returned fire with two handguns and an AR-15 rifle. Of the seven men who assaulted the trailer, one died of a head wound, two suffered non-lethal injuries, and five face criminal charges. None of the three defenders were injured in the gunfight, which saw 30 rounds fired from the AR-15. The attack was the result of a long-standing feud between two groups of young men.

Armed Oklahoma Citizens Kill Restaurant Shooter
When a gunman opened fire on an Oklahoma City restaurant, two Sooner State men with concealed carry permits retrieved pistols from their nearby cars and confronted the shooter as he attempted to leave the scene. Rather than comply with the men’s orders to disarm, the shooter fired on the armed citizens, who returned fire and fatally wounded the assailant. Authorities say Oklahoma’s good Samaritan law will protect the intervening armed permit holders.

Washington State Melee Ends with Gun Owner Using Pistol as Club
An Ilwaco man went outside his house and noticed a vehicle on fire. That’s when a man armed with a knife verbally abused and then attacked him. Several neighbors attempted to intervene and subdue the assailant, who had a history of mental problems. The original victim of the attack retrieved a pistol from his house but couldn’t get a clear shot at the attacker for fear of hitting the multiple people struggling to subdue him. The victim resorted to using his pistol as a club so the assailant could be safely subdued. Several people suffered stab wounds, but there were no fatalities.

Again, I ask the question, do you want to be on the hook for criminal or civil lawyers if prosecuted or if a lawsuit is filed against you? I know I do not want to spend even a night in jail while authorities figure out the facts surrounding a shooting if I am forced to defend myself.
And I thinks it begs to be said, criminals aren’t the smartest, something that seemed glaring as I read these stories.

Local Reverend Stops Vicious Neighborhood Attack
It had started off as a normal day in Bruce’s Florida neighborhood. As a reverend, Vietnam veteran and USCCA Member, Bruce loved spending time in his quiet, close-knit community.
Suddenly, he heard a commotion coming from one of his neighbors’ homes. As the sounds of angry shouting grew louder, it became clear that something was terribly wrong. Fearing for the safety of the community, Bruce cautiously approached the house.
What he saw horrified him.
His neighbor was outside being attacked, actively warding off blows from an irate tow-truck driver who was parked nearby.
Bruce tried to deescalate the situation, and begged the attacker to stop….
It was then that he heard his neighbor yell “Bruce! Watch out!”

My Parting Thoughts
I think most of the products in the liability protection space for gun owners are good, they offer very comprehensive coverage and provide peace of mind to the responsible gun owners and their families. These products offer the insured the fewest gaps or exposure. The post https://www.pewpewguru.com/the-best-3-liability-insurance-products-for-gun-owners-and-concealed-carriers/ list the top three products in the space. The NRA’s insurance product probably has the most name recognition of the three, but in my opinion is the least comprehensive of the products listed here. Face it, anything having to do with guns, if the NRA affixes their name to—will have a built in following and cachet. The NRA Machine will make this a better product in time. But today, my pick for the best liability insurance product is USCCA. I am a member of the NRA, they have certified me to be an instructor and I continue take their training’s but USCCA is my insurance vehicle. I have researched Second Call, and it looks like a really good program, but it does not have the level of coverage of USCCA. For my money, sanity, peace of mind and overall feeling of protection, the USCCA is my gun owner’s liability product of choice.
