I have had it since I got my LTC about 10 years ago. It renews automatically every year.

I have had TX Law Shield for many years. They have a great network of educational opportunities, and keep me informed of new Texas laws. I am glad I have them and hope I never need them.

You need to read the fine print. I didn’t see a reason for me to join.

Buy an umbrella policy if you don’t have one.

Did some research on it when I got my LTC, wasn't worth the money to me. Better off just finding a lawyer to hand a retainer too and keep his card handy just in case.

Thatís exactly what their business model is.

Seeing as shooting by carriers rarely occur, they are making bank off what-if scenarios.

Was there anything in particular in there that you didn't like. I'm not a member, but would like to know what turned you off.

Iíve been a Tx LawShield member for years. There are a lot of similar concealed carry insurance companies out there and itís worth doing your home work before deciding. Do you travel to other states? TLS covers about 19 states, others cover all 50. I believe CCW Safe is the only carrier to successfully defend a self-defense charge trough a full murder trial. Member was acquitted and the cost was several hundred thousand dollars paid by CCW safe. https://ccwsafe.com/

Hereís a resource for comparing carriers. Itís a comparison of legal protection plans. https://www.vcdl.org/Legal-Plans

Lots of good advice here at to why you really don't need Texas Law Sheild or the like.

Common sense and an avenue to a good lawyer is all you need. I you cant handle these two things, I would suggest signing up.

I’m glad to see this. My brother and I finally got around to taking our LTC class this week and they were pushing Texas Law Shield pretty hard. For $10 a month it seems that it would be hard to go wrong with. I think I’ll probably sign up.

I've had it for a long time now. I travel a lot and any questions that I've had they answer and say just call if you have a problem, even in NY. I know a lot of LEO's that have it.

I've had it for quite a while, haven't bought into the "extras' they've been pushing lately. Seems to beat the heck out of USCCA. I have used it several times in that I've had questions answered by their lawyer on several occasions.

I think you have a better chance to be struck by lightening than getting in a shootout. Unless you are the type that goes looking for one.

My advice would be to check your homeowners policy or call your agent and see if your liability coverage would kick in. Then spend the money to get an umbrella policy. That would also cover you in a myriad of other situations. Car wrecks, etc.

There are a lot of folks capitalizing on what if scenarios. Anyone have boxes of survival food stored under their bed? More than 1,000 rounds of .223 ammo? A whole house generator? Flood insurance for a house that has never flooded? Stuff like that? For ~$100/yr, folks can protect themselves against a potential financially devastating loss over a shooting. Smart folks say you should buy insurance for things that you cannot afford to replace.
