Owning a gun can come with a lot of unforeseen accidents or injuries. If you have a concealed carry permit, you never know when you might come across an incident where you have to use your firearm for personal defense.
The implications of a self-defense shooting can include:
Concealed carry insurance, also known as CCW or firearm liability insurance, is a form of low-cost coverage that provides legal protection if you use your registered firearm in a self-defense situation. As more people carry firearms to keep themselves and their families safe, an increasing number of gun owners are considering the purchase of this insurance. Many policies also provide coverage for civil court proceedings, such as when you are the target of a lawsuit filed by an involved party.
The level and type of CCW coverage will vary based on the policy and the limits you choose. In some cases, the carrier will provide upfront funds for your legal defense in the wake of a gun-related self-defense incident. Other insurers will only compensate you upon the resolution of your case. Coverage amounts vary widely and some policies might offer much higher limits than others.
Depending on the policy, you can also cover costs such as bail bonds, income interruption, attorney retainer fees, firearm replacement, and more. An experienced CCW insurance partner like XINSURANCE can help you determine the optimal coverages and amounts for your situation.

The following answers to frequently asked questions about firearm liability insurance will give you a better understanding of what it is and why you need it:
Currently, none of the 50 states have laws mandating that concealed gun owners carry liability insurance. However, laws are subject to change, especially with the increasing focus on gun control. Not having insurance places you at a substantial financial risk.
While the liability portion of a typical homeowners’ or renters’ policy covers injuries and property damage sustained by others, it does not apply to “intentional acts” involving the use of a firearm. Most policies exclude coverage in these situations, even in self-defense situations. Some plans do provide some coverage for injuries and damages resulting from the use of “reasonable force” by the policyholder. However, this is the exception rather than the rule.
CCW is one of the least costly forms of insurance protection on the market. Depending on the coverages and limits you select, you can get a comprehensive policy for only a few hundred dollars per year. When you consider that it could save you thousands of dollars and help you avoid jail time, these plans offer a cost-effective solution.
A firearm liability insurance plan can offer much more than legal liability protection. Policies are available that include training opportunities with a focus on safety and education. Examples include weekly training drills, life-saving checklists, access to online video libraries and interactive “ask an attorney” features where you can chat with experienced lawyers about gun-related legal issues.
