A Cautionary Tale heard at the Denver Gun Show
Last weekend at the Tanner Gun Show in Denver a table sponsored by the USCCA - the United States Concealed Carry Association - was across from us. We know the guys who were working the table and chatted with them off and on over the two days. They told us a rather chilling tale from a fellow who signed up for the USCCA Carry Insurance program. It was a bit of Barn Door Locking on his part but he knew first hand what can happen without coverage.
Seems he was staying at a hotel down in Castle Rock - a town about 20 minutes south of Denver. It was one of the hotels where your door opens up to the outside - he apparently was on the ground floor. While I don't know all the specifics the core of the story is that he had an encounter outside his room with a guy wielding a knife. Feeling threatened he drew his carry gun, held it pointed at the ground and yelled at the would be attacker to get away - which he did.
Sounds pretty cut and dried...but police got involved and while the guy with the knife wasn't arrested the guy with the gun was. In Colorado there isn't a specific "Brandishment" law. What are applied instead are charges for "Felony Menacing" and "Assault with a Deadly Weapon". "Our Guy" was charged with both. Everything was on the parking lot video. He ultimately prevailed in court, the charges were dismissed. Again, I don't know all the specifics but I do know this...he still owed his attorney $17,000. Yikes! If that doesn't prompt you to look into Carry Insurance I don't know what would.
We're not here to promote any particular program. You can easily do the research yourself and make the choice that's best for you. I did a quick Search and turned up a Gun Digest article from last August that featured 4 Nationwide Insurance offerings.
