That’s why we published an article comparing all the major concealed carry providers (updated for 2021) to help you make the right decision to choose the best concealed carry (or CCW) insurance.

In short, concealed carry insurance usually provides

  • Funds to pay your legal defense to defend yourself from a criminal conviction and/or civil lawsuit for using your legal weapon (not just firearms) in self-defense.
  • Funds to pay a premium for posting your bond.
  • Compensation for wages lost during a court case.
  • Funds for court fees.

You might be new to this, or already know all the pitfalls of firing in self defence. Either way Gary Eastridge from CCW Safe has a great insider’s perspective, and some great stories from his days as an homicide inspector.

Introducing Gary Eastridge

What is Gary’s job at CCW Safe?

Gary runs the Critical Response Unit at CCW Safe. The team that will help you when you most need it. The Critical Response Team is a team of senior individuals who will travel to any member being charged for firing their gun or firearm. This team is one of the standout features of CCW Safe. In fact, it is unique among the concealed insurance providers.

As you’ll see in the video, CCW Safe is very big on peer support. This is just one of the things the CCW Safe founders learnt from their days in law enforcement that now is part of the CCW Safe culture.

You might be wondering what ‘peer support’ means in reality? Put it this way, one of their members was being charged. Before any legal conclusion, this member lost his job. The Critical Response Team travelled to the member and helped him negotiate a year long severance package with his place of work. They are also there as an experienced hand guiding their members through these tough experiences. They help with everything from the first moments after the gun fired to the police interviews, hiring lawyers, court proceedings and finding expert witnesses.
