(United States Concealed Carry Association)
Over the years the Christian Gun Owner site has been in existence, the one element that I have been determined to keep solid and without question is "trust". That means that though I, just like anybody else can be wrong, my intent in all things here will be honest.
And my research, experience and open identity would fortify that to anyone visiting, or to regular readers.
What I link to:
That honesty includes not only my reviews, but companies and products that I link to. They are only companies and/or products that I have used and know for certain that you will either be satisfied with or from which you can easily get great customer service or your money back.
I have followed and provided updated progress or disadvantages of this organization for several years.
I'm happy to say they have now risen to the top once again. As gun owners, it is an advantage to all of us when an organization like this succeeds.
This is an Update - November 2013: There is now no reason not to join the USCCA.
Content + Extras + Training + Value + Legal Protection + Price + Payments = The Best CC Organization online.
As of Nov. 2013 the most protection available for handgun owners.
To their credit, they have truly listened to the public and are providing value that puts them solidly in the "Win" column.
Now The Clear Winner
The SHIELD self defense insurance has been the biggest source of controversy over the last couple of years. Questions about "which is better" have been rampant. Does it really work? Is it legitimate?
NOW: Here's why the SHIELD is the clear choice for protection against criminal or civil litigation in a self defense shooting.
What's always been available: Civil litigation insurance protection and criminal defense reimbursement. Same as a few other firearms self defense policy providers.
Now added to that, the necessities that people have asked for: (All dollar amounts are as of this writing)
These are Benefits, not delayed possibilities for review by some committee.
That means if you are arrested after a self defense shooting, these benefits are yours as part of your Membership to the USCCA.
Other Emergency Resources In The Event of a Self Defense Shooting:
The United States Concealed Carry Association is not the insurance though. It's an organization promoting gun rights and concealed carry across the U.S.
The hundreds of online articles, excellent magazine, extras offered, training, high quality items for purchase and even the Facebook page are all top quality and valuable for anybody's CCW arsenal of knowledge.
The benefits added to the SHIELD did not add to the price.
And now, monthly payments are available for anybody's budget.
This package now brings the USCCA membership pricing well within the category of being an excellent value well worth the price.
That means well worth the price for any level membership.
By the way, here's my upgraded yearly USCCA membership. Now a Gold member. Paid by SmartPay (monthly).
I determined what level membership needed by a basic understanding of local court and attorney costs. Good attorneys in my area are not as costly as in larger heavily populated cities.
Choose your membership level based on the amount of legal financial security needed for your area or your living/travel situation.
NEW as of November 2013 for all membership levels :
Stolen Firearm Protection - "You'll be legally and financially protected if your firearm is reported stolen and used in a crime."
Now for the BOTTOM LINE:
Valuable Offers From The USCCA:
