Deadly Force, by Any Other Name

A couple of funny use-of-force stories came across my desk this past week, both involving unusual means of using deadly defensive force.  So, let’s dive right in. Most of us who CCW (and, hopefully, that’s most of us, period) tend to think of our handgun as our primary deadly defensive tool of choice, perhaps backed up by a fixed or folding bladed weapon. (I also urge, of course, having accessible a non-deadly means of self-defense, …

Given the alerts we’ve been sending out about the impending substantial price increase for the Law of Self Defense CONSULT Program on November 1 (that price jump happens THIS WEEK, folks!), as well as the Federal lawsuit recently filed against USCCA for allegedly failing to cover the self-defense legal expenses of one of their Platinum members, we’ve been getting a lot of inquiries along these lines: “Andrew, what’s the real difference between your CONSULT Program …

Andrew Guests on Armed America Radio

Hey folks, I was a guest once again on Armed America Radio, hosted by Mark Walters, last night, October 27, 2019. We discussed (in passing) the Federal lawsuit recently filed against “self-defense insurance” provider USCCA for (alleged) failure to pay a Platinum members’ legal defenses in a self-defense case; the enormous costs of a legal defense in a criminal case, how best to interact with police during a traffic stop if you’re lawfully armed, and …

My post yesterday about the Federal lawsuit brought by one Kayla Giles against USCCA resulted in a fair-sized tsunami of feedback, both positive and negative.  In that lawsuit, Giles claims that USCCA is failing to meet their “self-defense insurance” obligations towards her as a Platinum member. By the way, if you missed that LIVE post yesterday, you can find the replay, as well as the full-text version, on our blog here.  All that feedback, both …

USCCA Sued in Federal Court: Refused to Cover Platinum Member?

NOTE: IMPORTANT UPDATE AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST! A few caveats before I get to the meat of this topic. First, we’re currently only hearing one side of this story, and that’s the side of the party suing USCCA (actually, they’re suing parent company Delta Defense, but given the nature of the relationship between the companies and the greater brand awareness of USCCA, I’ll refer to the defending party as USCCA for purposes of …

Andrew Guests on “Meet the Pressers” Show

I was recently interviewed by a new and rapidly growing pro-2A podcast, “Meet the Pressers,” hosted by Klint Marco and Matthew Mallory.  The format is focused on interviews with leading figures in the Second Amendment and firearms training communities, most of which are names that will be immediately recognizable to all of you, including such luminaries as: Michael Bane Chris Cerino George Zimmerman (yes, that George Zimmerman) Maj Toure (apologies if I’ve mangled the pronunciation, …
