Greetings- My wife enrolled us in a Concealed Carry Club. Pay $60 a month and covers us both. The idea is that if we ever have to use a weapon in self defense, call a number and am put in contact with a local attorney who will provide immediate representation up to a certain dollar amount.
Also get newsletters emailed regularly, access to online classes and a Carry oriented magazine.
My wife feels that in these times, this membership is vital to our defense and safety. I feel if either of us were in need of legal defense, we could just find a local attorney ourselves, and this Membership is unnecessary.
Any thoughts on this friends? Thanks -Edsel

Lots of threads on the subject if you do a search. You may even find several if it's the one it sounds like (has a magazine).
Search the name and the subject, self defense insurance, etc.

And until you do, I lump Legal gun defense insurance up there with extended warranties on appliances. In other words, a waste of money.

The only way you'd need it is if you were in a bad shoot and if you were there's a good chance the insurance wouldn't cover you as it's illegal in most states to insure people who commit illegal acts. Look and see if your state is one of those before buying.

But that's just me.

Like everything else, the devil is in the details. Get a copy of your contract and have your attorney look at the fine print. Then advise you accordingly!

In spite of what they'd like you to think, they are NOT insurance.
Most remind me of the expression, "all hat, no cattle".

As 220-9er says, many of them are legal reserve funds and not insurance. That being said, some like USCCA are reputable and worth having.

(If you plan to hire an attorney for criminal defense in a homicide case, you should expect to be prepared to have a retainer equal to at least 16 hours of the USAO fee structure: https://www.justice.gov/usao-d...ile/1305941/download)
