So you've decided to get your CCW or CHP in your state for protection? You selected a handgun, went through training, and are prepared for the worst.Well, the worst just happened and you had to use deadly force to protect your family
We all hear horror stories about the legal nightmares that occur after a deadly CCW or self defense incident. Just recently I came across a story about a gentleman who was staying at his parents house once night, and he was forced to shoot an intruder that forcibly entered the home. The intruder survived and sued the gentleman for a ridiculous sum of money. The case was eventually thrown out of court, but not before the man had racked up an $85,000 legal bill to defend himself against the suit.

Stories like these abound over the internet, so the question really becomes "are you financially prepared for such an incident"? The answer to that question gives us an opportunity to look further into specialized insurance, commonly called self defense insurance, CCW insurance, or concealed carry insurance. As the CCW movement has spread across the US, a number of insurance providers are now offering specialized plans to cover CCW holders.For starters, it's important to understand that the effectiveness of this type of insurance varies from state to state, so it's important to understand how your own state interprets this type of insurance and coverage that comes along with it. Many states have a "stand your ground" provision and that provision may (or may not) protect you against any potential civil actions. It's certainly suggested that you speak with a versed CCW attorney in your home state to ensure that you are clear on the laws that apply to your individual situation.
