    Hello Mas, I've spent countless hours watching your older videos, and reading articles/replies to people in this GATE.

    I asked this question in the carry issues section of the forum, however one mentioned an opposing lawyer could use this against me stating I was just "waiting" to shoot someone, as reason to having CCW insurance.

    I figured who else better to ask than the man who has probably forget more knowledge and information on self defense than I could ever learn in my lifetime. Is getting insurance for a "pro gun" attorney a good strategy if (god forbid) you should ever have to use your firearm in a self defense situation, and not want to go bankrupt? I remember reading a while back you mentioning you've seen self defense shooters have to spend upwards of 15-20k on an attorney to maintain their innocents. I thank you in advance for you sharing your extensive knowledge with us.


    Best regards.

    I'm not familiar with Texas Shield, though I am active with Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network, which is not insurance per se (www.armedcitizensnetwork.org).

    The argument that having a plan in place for such an emergency means you were planning to commit murder, is a little like arguing that if your home is insured against fire, you must be an arsonist. I would expect a good lawyer to shoot it down for you.

    If the case goes to trial, the figures you quoted are probably on the low side, unfortunately.

    best,
    Mas
