Testimonials from CCW Safe Members

So far this is the best Personal Defense insurance you can buy. They will assign you an attorney from minute one who will defend you civil or criminal. For my LE friends, its cheap peace of mind. Ive checked all others, this is the best by far! Get a 5 year deal for 4, and Id appreciate a mention, since they like referrals!

It was great to meet the leadership of CCW Safe at SHOT Show 2014. The more I learn about this organization, the more impressed I am!”

In today’s environment, it would be foolish to properly prepare to carry a handgun, but not properly prepare for the consequences of having to use it.  Having access to sound expert advice is part of gun ownership, and will not be optional in the unfortunate event of a violent encounter.  After carefully researching the options that are available, I am convinced that CCW Safe currently offers the best coverage for the money.

am a CCH Instructor in NC and cannot express enough to students the importance of getting coverage for personal liability. CCWSafe is the answer. I will be passing on information to student to encourage them to get coverage~~~not doing so is just senseless!

About Us

CCW Safe was founded in 2011 by former law enforcement and current attorneys.

The goal of CCW Safe is to provide the best attorneys  for our members, the most experienced investigators and the most qualified expert witnesses.  These services are all provided for our members at no cost other than our annual membership fees.

We hope that our members never will need our services, but if you do,  We Got Your Back!

  • Membership Fees

    Our members will never have to pay out of pocket for any of our services.  Attorneys, investigators and expert witnesses are all included in our members annual fees of $99 for a single, $150 for a dual, or $75 for military or law enforcement (active or retired).  Members will not pay any other fees associated with services, even if they are found guilty, or if there is a mistrial or appeals.  CCW Safe is not responsible for Bail Bonds or for judgements that may be found against you in a civil trial.

  • Coverage

    We cover our members nationwide, anywhere that their permit or permits are honored, against any action stemming from a self defense incident.  It is our members responsibility to keep their permit or license current, and to keep current with laws in other states that they will be carrying in.  Because state laws may change, we recommend using Legal Heat to keep up with laws state to state.

  • We Care

    We care about our members, because we are members too.  We initially founded CCW Safe with our own needs and expectations in mind.  Our members can expect immediate access to attorneys when involved in a self defense incident.  Our goal is to have our member talking to an attorney before responding law enforcement arrives.  Our members can expect to have a seasoned, former homicide detective on scene within hours to review the incident, investigate the suspect involved and interview witnesses.  If any criminal, civil or administrative actions are taken against our members,  they can expect to have the best team available to them.

Seven Points To Remember After You Have Been In A Self Defense Shooting

  Stan Campbell, Co Founder and COO of CCW Safe talks about some things that are common best practices if  you are ever involved in a self defense shooting.  These are things that should be thought about well before any involvement, and should be thought about often, in order to effectively deal with the scenario, should it ever happen to you.  If you are involved in a self defense shooting, CCW Safe can greatly assist you by providing all the financial support for attorneys, expert witnesses and investigators.  Below is a breakdown of the video above.

  • Make Sure You are Safe

    Make sure that everyone involved, which may be you, your family, or others, are safe from any threat before doing anything.  Verify that the suspect is down and no longer poses a threat.  Visually scan for other suspects and visually verify that the suspect no longer has access to a weapon.  Do not approach the suspect.

  • Initiate Emergency Response

    Call 911 for police assistance.  Request emergency medical services.  These services may be for you, your family, or for others, including the suspect.  Do not discuss the incident with dispatch in depth, only give brief facts of the case.  Think of things such as “I was forced to defend myself”, “I was in fear for my life”, or “I was attacked”.  Try not to use phrases such as “I killed someone” or “I just shot someone”.  Only after 911, contact CCW Safe to initiate your service by calling our 800 Emergency Line on your membership card.

  • Prepare For Responding Officers

    This happens before officers arrive on the scene.  As you hear or see police cars or officers getting close, holster your weapon.  Retrieve your concealed carry permit, your driver’s license (if you have it) and your CCW Safe card.  Raise your hands above your head with palms facing officers and listen to their commands.   They may tell you to get on the ground, and if they do, comply with their request.  They may see something that you don’t, or it may make them feel safer.  Remain calm, but restate the fact that you are a victim.

  • Provide Initial Information

    Provide initial information to the responding officers.  Some things that can explain your situation might be “I AM THE VICTIM”, “I HAD TO USE THE WEAPON IN SELF DEFENSE”, “I WAS FORCED TO DEFEND MY LIFE”, “THAT IS THE SUSPECT”, “MY WEAPON IS SECURE IN MY HOLSTER”, “MY CCW PERMIT IS IN MY HAND ALONG WITH A NUMBER FOR MY LAWYER”, “I WILL GIVE A FULL STATEMENT IN THE PRESENCE OF MY ATTORNEY”.    

  • Identify Case Elements To Officers

    Identify some of the basic case elements to the responding officers.  Some basic case elements might include the following:  “THAT IS THE SUSPECT”, “THAT PERSON OVER THERE IS A WITNESS”, “THERE IS THE SUSPECTS WEAPON”,  Let officers know of any injuries and make sure that they are documented before you are cleaned up, unless the injuries are life threatening.  If you are injured in any way, request to be taken to the hospital for review.

  • You Are A Victim. Act Like One

    Remember your role.  Do not get pulled into the surrounding excitement of others if you are ever involved in a self defense shooting.   The officers who arrive may know the suspect, or may have dealt with them in the past.  They may act or say things that to some would be inappropriate.  Police officers deal with shootings, violent death and accidents daily, and respond and react to those incidents differently than people who are not around it.  Witnesses or bystanders may become excited.  Do not get drawn into that excitement, or show any non verbal, or verbal signs of excitement.  Do not post anything on social media, text family or friends, or call family or friends.   Do not make off color comments or laugh at others jokes.

  • Provide Identifying Information Only

    Give the responding officers your basic identifying information only.   Explain to them that you would like to give a full statement and interview in the presence of your attorney, that you are a CCW Safe member, and that you have representation for self defense actions, including deadly use of force.

CCW Safe will advise you what to do and what steps to take when you talk to them after your 911 call.  You will immediately talk to an attorney, who will initiate the Critical Response Team.   The Critical Response Team, consisting of attorneys, investigators and administration from CCW Safe, will respond to your location and will be very close to you for the upcoming weeks.  All interviews, media requests and more will be handled by CCW Safe and your attorney.
