    I agree on the insurance aspect, but Texas Law Shield did put out an excellent book. If you live in Texas, you should definitely add ‘Texas Gun Laws’ to your library.

    Always entertaining, mildly offensive
    IANative: Indeed, when you grab Brent (or he grabs you), it feels like liquid unobtanium wrapped in rawhide... whereas Greg is just solid muscle wrapped in hate, seasoned w/ snuff and a little lead.

    I’m betting Gabe is the only one who pronounces Simon Bolivar’s name correctly...

    As I see it, the KWTL material Gabe is teaching is the #1 and most important training for surviving the aftermath of a shooting. Period, end of story. Given the choice between insurance and KWTL, KWTL wins. It's a no-brainer.

    However, I am still completely comfortable having the USCCA insurance. It's the only one on the market I've seen that pays everything - bail money, attorney's fees, etc - up front and 100%. Crap like the NRA Carry Shield and Lofton only REIMBURSE you and only 80% and only AFTER you're declared not guilty. Worthless in my eyes.

    I know Gabe really has no love for USCCA and the "fear porn" they push and I agree with him 100% on that. It makes me sick.

    However, as I've always said, to me having the insurance is akin to having a spare magazine or wearing a vest. It's just a little extra level of protection "just in case". As I've mentioned before, I am 100% comfortable using the KWTL material to handle a situation. I think it's the only way to go. Not "I'm not talking until I call my USCCA attorney". That would be foolish. But again, no matter how clean the shoot is, no matter how justified, even if it's caught on camera, what happens when the scumbag I end up having to shoot turns out to be the mayor's nephew, or the governor's old school buddy, or relative with someone with the proper "pull"? Yes, the KWTL material will get the police to rule it a self defense shooting and justified. Even if I end up going home that night with assurances that "it's clearly self defense, we're not gonna hold you", there's no assurance that the mayor/governor/person of influence does not subsequently pressure the prosecutor into prosecuting. And that is where I want to have the insurance. I don't own a home to mortgage off or $250,000 to keep myself out of jail due to a political hit job.

    So I count on each tool working as it applies. KWTL will work, and I'm willing to bet my freedom on it. Totally confident that Gabe, Greg, Brent and the others are 100% correct on that. And that protects me 99.99% of the time. But, just in case, for that 0.1% chance (because my luck really does suck) that I end up dealing with a malicious prosecution even though I'm 100% innocent, I see no other way of keeping myself out of jail.

    Maybe it would be more accurate to say the KWTL material is my firearm, vest and spare magazine and the insurance is my knife, just in case we get to that desperate situation where I'm out of ammo and it's hand to hand.

    I am also thinking of USCCA. I feel in this day and age no matter how "right" or "justified" a person may be in an incident it may not be as the law should provide in today's environment. We see what is going on now...especially with law enforcement in this enraged leftist movement we have going on. A person may be found innocent by criminal trial but there would still be a good chance to be involved a civil trial. There are other insurance outfits out there but I think USCCA is one of the better.

    I listen to an Audible Simon Bolivar biography probably once a year.

    Sorry if you feel like you are not having a positive influence, Gabe. I appreciate all you've done for us over the years.
