Key Membership Benefits
Benefit for benefit, NRA Carry Guard’s protection program for responsible Americans is the finest available. No other program even comes close.
NRA Carry Guard members receive up to $1,500,000 of civil protection and $250,000 in criminal defense costs reimbursed after acquittal or dismissal, with up to 20% of the criminal defense costs limit available as supplementary payments for expenses. Be wary of any provider that claims to offer full criminal defense funding up front: Not only is this likely unnecessary, but it may be illegal, as it is illegal to insure a criminal act. Most criminal defense attorneys will not require payment of final bills until after your case ends—at which time the rest of your criminal defense protection is available if you were acquitted or the case was dismissed.

An update on NRA Carry Guard from NRA General Operations Executive Director Josh Powell

NRA Carry Guard’s comprehensive approach to training, financial protection and legal defense for those who carry is a serious, long-term vision in its earliest stages. But already, with a best-in-class membership offering insurance, education and expert online resources, as well as an in-person training course that launched in July, gun owners enjoy greater opportunity and options in the carry community than ever before.

When you think about the training you need to get, this is the new standard.

- Veteran Navy SEAL Dom Raso, NRATV Commentator and Founder and CEO, Dynamis Alliance

A program such as NRA Carry Guard is vital to the firearms industry.
