As a prepper and avid shooter, you know how important it is to have the right gear. This includes not only weapons but also insurance for your guns. There are many different choices when looking for CCW insurance these days, but which one is best? We’re going to break down USCCA vs NRA Carry Guard so that you can make an informed decision about which one will work best for you in 2020.
Prepare for the worst.
USCCA is more expensive than NRA Carry Guard because they are newer on the scene as well as being smaller company with less resources at their disposal. However, we think USCCA’s better customer service and lower premium rates make them worth considering if they will be able to provide the coverage needed by all of our members
Ready to conquer the world?
1. What do you think the future of CCW insurance will look like in 2020?
2. Do you think that technology will play a role in self-defense and safety?
We’ve all been there.
3. In what state is it legal to carry a concealed weapon without an additional license or permit?
4. Have you ever thought about how much time we spend in our homes, not caring about the things happening around us because we feel safe without a gun holstered on our hip? If so, have you decided how you would defend yourself if someone does break in – with or without security of insurance coverage?
The NRA Carry Guard program, which offered USCCA-like insurance services for gun owners who were members of the association. Sadly, they recently went out of business and their insurance products are no longer available to purchase from them. This means that most other “concealed carry” insurances you see advertised on TV or online aren’t even real life health care plans at all! They’re just a membership with access to some limited discounts but not actual coverage in case something happens like an injury resulting from using your firearm (which is illegal!).
There’s been a lot more talk about guns lately because it seems that almost every day there’s news reports coming back saying somebody somewhere was shot by another person carrying one themselves illegally. That
What if there were a way to stop your future from unraveling?
The legal services offered by these organizations provide funds or service of certain types. All the levels have caps and maximums depending on what you purchase so it’s important to find one that suits your needs. The NRA entered the concealed carry market in 2017 with a lot of commotion – choosing not to follow other companies, they developed their own program called Carry Guard which takes an entirely different approach from USCCA’s Protection Plus Plan for example where annual memberships start at $14/monthly payments up front cost about $9 per month upfront then monthly fees average out around $11-12 if paid annually while carrying permits can be used as collateral when applying for protection plus plan membership after completing training courses like First Steps Pistol Course 1 day course providing descriptions
The NRA, finding themselves in need of insurance for their Carry Guard program after the Parkland shooting that killed 17 people and injured 16 more at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School
Welcome to the future of self-defense.
in Florida on February 14th, 2018. The Unraveling Begins when they are unable to find a provider willing to take them as clients due to lack of coverage or high premiums given their poor claims history. In desperation they contacted Lockton – one of most reputable brokers in the world with Chubb Group being arguably the largest insurer worldwide- both who were able win over an entirely new clientele without issue from previous missteps including gun related violence against innocent civilians; providing only peace-of mind protection not just guns!
Competition in the insurance industry is cutthroat and intense, but are all of these organizations playing by the same rules? If a licensed attorney can sell subscriptions to legal services individually without oversight or regulation from their state bar association, then why shouldn’t they also be able to offer other forms of financial security for clients with less worry about what’s required on their end.

“If an attorney who operates within one specific jurisdiction has no responsibility towards regulating themselves when it comes to selling accesses/subscriptions to law firms as Lockton was doing through NRA memberships–shouldn’t this allow them much more freedom than say if they were instead trying ti enter into highly regulated territory such as managing portfolios?”
The NRA was in for a tough time when they released the Lockton Carry Guard insurance program. As soon as it began issuing policies, several states started an investigation into why there were so many complaints from consumers and if any laws had been broken. The regulator of New York State got to work early on this case – their investigations found that both parties underestimated how difficult getting licenses would be in each state
Get ready to laugh.
The NRA found themselves embroiled in legal wrangling around the country. Once New York State fined Lockton for violating several regulations, they canceled all policies issued to residents of NY state as a result. This was less than one year after their program had launched and it’s clear that this is what ultimately led them down into trouble with lawsuits across multiple states including Washington and California where these types of insurance products were also prohibited by law from being sold or marketed within each respective state boundaries because they violated both Federal Laws (of course) but not just those laws- The Nail In The Coffin so-to point out!
If you guessed it, we’re sorry.
The NRA quickly found itself embroiled legally when New York chose to suspend plans on Carry Guard due to violations which included prohibiting any coverage for
The NRA Carry Guard program is essentially dead after Chubb and Lockton terminated their contracts. The insurance provider for the NRA was not able to underwrite this plan any longer because of a mass shooting in Florida early 2018, so they did away with it quickly. Without an administrator or an insurer, all that remains on the website are training courses which have nothing mentioning concealed carry insurance anywhere on them anymore
The NRA’s Carry Guard program is a new venture which some believe has turned into an expensive albatross for the organization. The comparison between USCCA and the NRA programs paints a picture of what might have been possible had there not been such mistakes in planning.
The NRA Carry Guard Gold PlanUSCCA – Elite Plan offers civil protection coverage up to $1,500,000 and criminal defense insurance of up to $250,000. In addition the plan benefits from 24/7 hotline access for assistance in emergencies as well as automatic spousal coverage at discounted rates.

The NRA Carry Guard program looked like a sure winner for the NRA. Too Much, Too Fast
The gun-rights advocacy group was looking to compete with other self defense insurance policies Lockton had been providing at their company since 2000 and would have made it easier to buy firearms online if Congress ever passed legislation permitting it. The branding didn’t hurt marketing efforts either; what could possibly be wrong? After all, historically the market response has always been more than favorable when Lloyd introduced new products or added services in markets where they already competed. Little did anyone know that there were many hurdles ahead for this one of a kind project from conception until completion – too much happened way too fast!
It’s time to GET CARRYING.
In the years before Carry Guard, Lockton had established a fairly robust insurance company. However, this all came crashing down when they attempted to expand into 50 different states within two months with no previous experience in that sector of business. The lack of preparation and time for research led them on an unforeseen journey filled with hurdles which eventually sunk their ship like some sort of giant duck or something!
After the devastating Parkland school shooting, Lockton and the NRA were unable to continue their Carry Guard program. The timing was unfortunate for them as they had just begun talking about how best to weather all of this bad press when fate struck down on all sides with a vengeance that many members could never have anticipated or prepared themselves for in any way.
You’ll never be bored again.
The NRA’s Carry Guard program, which was supposed to offer liability insurance for those carrying a concealed handgun in public areas and up until this point had been endorsed by the National Rifle Association (NRA), has tragically come under fire. Amidst an ongoing national debate on gun control following the Parkland shooting that left 17 dead last year, Lockton announced it would no longer renew policies with or sell its services to any organizations affiliated with firearms manufacturers including The National Shooting Sports Foundation Inc., whose members include major firearm producers like Remington Arms Company LLC and Sturm Ruger
