    Can any of you guys and gals offer feedback on these programs? Both are pretty affordable, but is there real value in them?

    Having looked over these programs, I see some differences such as USLS giving members 24/7 access to a hotline with "Plan Attorneys" whereas USCCA SDS has members search for and contact their own choice from a list of participating attorneys.

    Also, USCCA SDS has three tiers of service with differing levels of civil and criminal liability protection, which I have to admit I don't fully understand...are those dollar amounts referring to attorney fees or to damages in the event a civil suit is lost???

    And if I am understanding correctly, it sounds like USLS simply provides its legal services to members, whereas USCCA SDS only reimburses the attorney fees afterwards.

    In the event of the worst-case scenario, I seriously doubt I could afford to retain an attorney up front. But I also question just what kind of lawyer I would get on a hotline at 3 a.m.

    Thanks for any help in better understanding these.

    I have looked at both of these programs in detail. And, from my assumption, the US Law Shield is the better bang for your buck.

    I would like to know if anyone has ever filed a claim or successfully used either service.

    What are the chances that you really are ever going to need a lawyer for a gun related issue? IMO you are throwing your money away on yearly premiums that odds are you will never need. Wait and spend it on an attorney when he is actually needed. Just sayin.......

    Chances that I will use my gun for protecting myself is slim so why have it either? Same thing with why I have Texas Law Shield. If I need it then I have it. Something happens then all I do is call a number right then to have an atty. at my side. That is better than trying to find an atty. that will even defend me. Something happens and I don't have to pay minimum 0f 25 grand to possible over 100 grand which I don't have. I pay less for one year piece of mind than I could possibly buy even one gun for.
    The guy in Houston that killed and was found not guilty lost his life savings and house to keep from going to jail. Yeah I will pay $130 a year for something that might never happen just like I will carry a gun for some need that may never happen.
    I also choose TLS over USCCA because of what each covers or doesn't cover.
    I also paid $1200 for a safe just in case something might happen but may never happen.

    If TLS and a $1200 safe gives you peace of mind then by all means you're doing the right thing! I own a $100 safe and don't have TLS and also have peace of mind...looks like win, win for the both of us.

    I told this story in another thread recently, but let me repeat it here. About a year ago a good friend of mine had to shoot and kill two pit bulls that were attacking him and his wife. Because he had discharged his weapon within 1,000 feet of a residence he was in violation of the TX Criminal Code. He called TLS then 911.

    The lawyer arrived before the sheriff's deputy. When the deputy arrived his first inclination was to arrest my friend and let the judge sort everything out in a day or so. The lawyer talked to the deputy for a few minutes. Then the deputy returned my friend's gun, sent him home, and wrote a citation to the owner of the dogs.

    My wife and I have been members of TLS since we got our CHLs.

    I wonder if AZ has anything like that.

    Most homeowners policies carry liability coverage of $100k-$300k.
