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- with Alexis Arthwohl, Ph.D.

Mike Darter, founder and CEO of CCW Safe, talks with Dr. Alexis Artwohl about her book “Deadly Force Encounters”.  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.

“Even though this book was primarily written for law enforcement, it is very relevant to concealed carriers”

When this book was published in 1997, there wasn’t the population of concealed carriers that there is today, and even though this book was written primarily for law enforcement, it is very relevant to today’s concealed carriers.  “Anybody involved in an extreme stress event, whether it be a concealed carry, or a terrible car accident, the human performance factors in the book” stated Dr. Artwohl.  She talks in the above video about the Survival Triangle, which is described in her book.  One should really have a plan for each corner of the triangle.

  • Physical Survival

    Personal survival is the first corner of the survival triangle and starts with physically surviving a deadly use of force.  This is the critical event that is often referred to as the “first fight” then presents the full survival triangle.

  • Psychological Survival

    The psychological survival corner of the triangle deals with the immediate and long lasting emotional and psychological trauma that often follows the event.  Post traumatic stress, isolation from friends and family, and other issues found in the aftermath of a critical event must be dealt with in a positive way to ensure one’s psychological survival.

  • Legal Survival

    This corner of the triangle deals with the legal aftermath of a use of deadly force.  If you are forced to defend yourself with deadly force, you will be under intense scrutiny by the criminal justice system.  You will then be considered a “suspect” in a felony crime, even though you are a victim.  You really need to have a plan for dealing with the legal issues that can arise from a use of deadly force, especially if you are a concealed carry permit holder.
