Playing the Insurance Game

I’m sure there are a few of you out there that don’t think concealed carry insurance is even necessary.

However, you should probably at least check out the most basic options available, even if you don’t carry, concealed or otherwise.

If you ever need to discharge your firearm — whether it’s at home, in your car, or in the sketchy parking lot outside of that equally sketchy Denny’s — you’ll wish you were covered.

Creepy Denny's
You know the Denny’s we’re talking about…

CCW insurance is basically just insurance to cover MOST costs associated with using your firearm in a self-defense situation.  

What Does It Cost Anyway?

Regardless of whether the police think it’s a “clean” self-defense shooting, it will likely be something decided in court by a jury.

That means court fees, attorneys’ fees, lost wages, replacement of your firearm and a bunch of other not-fun stuff.

Technically Not Insurance, But… [USCAA]


One of our team’s favorite options isn’t technically insurance…

However, they are the biggest player whenever someone thinks about “concealed carry insurance.”

But rather, it is a membership where you get tons of education and have personal liability insurance a part of your membership.

What’s your take on the USCCA?

Best Concealed Carry Insurance

Worth noting before we start that all of these options focus on the lowest tier of pricing. Many of these companies offer multiple plans, so if these don’t cover what you want, consider upgrading to a higher-level plan.

1. Right to Bear

If you like options and some flexibility, Right to Bear presents a decent option for those looking to be insured.


Offering a single budget-friendly tier — only $11 a month or $125 a year — Right to Bear makes a CCW self-protection plan achievable.

They’ve also upgraded their plan to be unlimited for both civil and criminal court. And if you’re found guilty in criminal court…they won’t claw back the amount.

Plus they’ve got some other great features like online training, psychological support, expert witness coverage, and industry discounts.

And something that I just found out and isn’t on their Features list (but is on their Education tab)…is that they’ll replace your gun if it is taken after a self-defense incident.


If you’re looking for other add-ons such as spousal insurance, bail-bond coverage, minor coverage, or multi-stage coverage they are add-ons. But at reasonable prices:

  • Additional Associate Coverage: $105/Year
  • Multi-State Coverage: $35/Year
  • Bail Bond Coverage: (Up to $100,000): $35/Year
  • Minor Household Children: $35/Year

The Numbers

So what does this plan cost you?

  • $11/month or $125 a year
  • Add-ons above

2. CCW Safe

CCW Safe is a well-established and time-tested CCW coverage plan.  


One of the biggest draws for CCW Safe is that there is no limit on the amount of criminal or civil defense you are covered for.  

Now, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t worry when discharging your firearm since you should only ever use it at the range or in self-defense.

It’s just the policy of CCW Safe to provide as much coverage as you need, not as much as they’re willing to budget.

They don’t require a reimbursement method of payment, so you won’t have to worry about paying for any of your civil or criminal defense costs at all.  

CCW Safe also does not seek reimbursement of defense costs if you’re found guilty or have to plead to a lesser offense.

They also now cover red flag incidents with $5k coverage for their lower Defender plan and $10k for their Ultimate plan. And if a red flag case is associated with a covered self-defense case you are covered 100%.

While close to being the perfect plan, there is one downside to CCW Safe policies. But it’s not really if you read into it…

They cover you if you have a permit or live in a constitutional carry state. Otherwise there is a home only plan for those who live in states where it is difficult to get a permit. AKA where it’s legal anyways.

The Numbers

So what does this awesome Defender plan cost you?

  • Monthly cost – $19/mo
  • Civil defense coverage limit – no limit
  • Criminal defense coverage limit – no limit
  • Bail amount – $1,000,000
  • Lost wages compensation – $250/day

These numbers go up if you get the Constitutional or Ultimate plans.

Yup…we have a full review of CCW Safe too!

3. US & TX Law Shield

Does size really matter? Your mom seems to think so. That’s right, a your mom joke.

US & TX Law Shield offers a relatively competitive plan, at very competitive prices.  

U.S. LawShield

With that lower price comes some tradeoffs.


You’d think a smaller company with lower prices wouldn’t be able to compete with the big boys at all. And you’d be wrong. Despite their size, US & TX Law Shield actually has no limit on their civil or criminal defense coverage.

What’s more, the payments are made upfront, so you don’t need to worry about waiting for reimbursements on attorneys’ fees while you’re busy planning your legal defense.

The lower cost has to be made up somewhere, right? With the cheaper offering from US & TX Law Shield, their basic plan offers NO lost wages compensation, and there are additional charges tacked on to the plan if you want to have bail coverage or have your policy effective throughout the entire US.  

It’s essentially a way to tailor your plan to suit your needs. Though after adding back in all the coverage offered as part of a standard policy by the other companies, you might end up paying about the same anyway.

The Numbers

Getting down to brass tacks, here’s where US & TX Law Shield stands:

  • Monthly cost – $10.95/mo
  • Civil defense coverage limit – no limit
  • Criminal defense coverage limit – no limit
  • Bail amount – no coverage at the basic level
  • Lost wages compensation – no coverage at the basic level

4. Second Call Defense

Not the last call, but the second call (get it???), Second Call Defense sits right in the middle, offering decent coverage limits. They aren’t the best, but also not the worst.

Second Call Defense


Like some of the better plans, Second Call Defense offers upfront payments of all your covered fees, such as attorneys’ fees. So, you don’t have to shell out the money yourself for bail or during the trial.  

The coverage also ranks right up there with the big boys and covers the entire US in their standard plan.


As a middle-tier offering, the criminal defense coverage is on the lower end, as is the bail amount. Of course, this is pretty much expected going in.

The Numbers

With nothing surprising here as a middle-of-the-road offering, Second Call Defense numbers look like this:

  • Monthly cost – $9.95/mo
  • Civil defense coverage limit – $500,000
  • Accidental shooting protection – $10,000
  • Criminal defense coverage limit – $100,000
  • Bail amount – $25,000

So Which Is The Best?

This is where you get the favorite answer of lawyers everywhere…it depends.

While it seems like a cop-out, it really does depend on what you want, and what you think you’ll need.

Even the staff here at Pew Pew Tactical have gone with different providers to suit our individual needs, ranging from USCCA to CCW Safe, and even US & TX Law Shield.  

The main thing is that you get some type of insurance, rather than none at all.

Ultimately, just like choosing any other insurance policy, try to see which of these plans seem like they would fit you the best, and check them out in detail.

We even have a couple of reviews on some of the providers, to help you make a more informed decision – if you haven’t read those, take a look at our USCCA and CCW Safe reviews.

USCCA membership also gets you some nifty training videos.

Even at around $20/mo for a typical CCW insurance policy, the money adds up, and could easily be spent on ammo instead, so it’s a good idea to be sure you know what you are getting for your money.  

Everyone’s situation is different, and someone in a free state like Texas may want to consider a policy that provides more coverage than someone living in the heart of New York City.

It’s also important to note that not all the policies we compared are available in all states. There are varying insurance and firearms regulations across the 50 states, so it never hurts to pick a few options just in case your top choice isn’t available in your home state.  

Moving is always an option too.

Final Thoughts

While everyone’s got their own views on insurance policies, at the very least, consider coverage limits and bail amounts when shopping around.

At the end of the day, it all comes down to your situation and what works best for you. But, again, any insurance plan is better than none at all.
