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.

Deadly Force Encounters- Dr. Alexis Artwohl

Alexis2009 FINALIn the upcoming weeks, we are going to be offering some unique training videos.  We are proud to have a great panel of advisors for CCW Safe, including experts like Dr. Alexis Artwohl.  Dr. Artwohl is the author of Deadly Force Encounters – What cops need to know to mentally and physically prepare for and survive a gunfight.  This is a great book that every police officer should have, but also directly applies to those who carry concealed.  We are pleased to announce we will have a multi part video series featuring Dr. Artwohl in the upcoming weeks.  You won’t want to miss these, as they will contain some very important and relevant information for our members and other concealed carriers.

 

 

 

“Dr. Alexis Artwohl is a true pioneer. Her research and training is of enormous value to cops, military, and mental health professionals and should be required for all professionals in those fields.”
Lt. Col. Dave Grossman (Ret.)
Author of ON KILLLING


Alexis Artwohl, Ph.D. is an internationally recognized behavioral science consultant to law enforcement as a trainer, researcher, and author. She has presented to many organizations and conferences in the USA, Canada, the United Kingdom, Mexico, and Jordan.  
During her 16 years as a private practice clinical and police psychologist, she provided consultation and training to multiple agencies throughout the Pacific Northwest, as well as traumatic incident debriefings and psychotherapy to numerous public safety personnel and their family members.

This book will enable you to gain a better insight on different topics involved with deadly encounters and help you prepare yourself better in the event of such incidents, surviving the incident and getting through the aftermath of the incident.  Some of the topics in the book are:

  • The survival triangle
  • Fight or Flight
  • Fear
  • Psychological Injuries
  • Debreifings
  • Aftermath of a traumatic event
  • Family and Trauma

A few things that we have talked about in our online training videos, or through articles on our site, have come through this book and through police training.  We have talked about the importance of visualization before, and the ability to put yourself in various threatening situations mentally, so you may be prepared to go there if you ever are put in those situations.  In her book, she recommends that police officers do that at least once a week.  While I was a police officer, especially during my involvement with tactical entries and street gang investigations,  I would often practice at least once a day.

Former homicide detective, Kyle Eastridge, has talked several times about the physiological effects during extremely stressful situations.  Things such as tunnel vision, auditory blunting, loss of basic motor skills.  All, or some of these effects, will most likely be present if you are ever forced to defend yourself with deadly force.  And while you may not be able to stop it or control it, as she states in her book, it is a good idea to learn what the physiological responses are to fight or flight, and understand that it will happen to you.

Some of the book applies specifically to police officers, but again, it is all relevant to our members and those who carry concealed.  Highly recommended!
