How much does it cost to carry a concealed hand gun?
How much money do you have, does your family have?
A mistake could cost it all, but we'll cover that later.
The APPROXIMATE cash out lay is something like:
- $500 for a hand gun
- $150 for a permit
- $50 for ammunition
- $50 for a holster or other carry device
- $150 for basic training
Add it up and you're at $900 so far.
Sure you could spend less, but you could also spend more.
Now let's talk about your on-going training costs:
- $150 for each advanced class
- $20 for each hour of range time
- $75 for ammunition each time you go to the range
If you go to the range frequently, this adds up very fast.
Let's discuss liability insurance.
Oh, you have a home owners policy..... Talk to your agent. It most likely excludes deliberate acts. So if you shoot someone in self defense and they sue you, you have no coverage.
Consider specialty coverage from
There are offerings from other companies as well, so do some research and comparisons, but seriously consider the consequences of NOT being insured.
We are not an agent for any of these entities.
In closing, there are certainly costs associated with carrying a hand gun. Only you can determine the relative value of any specific item as it pertains to not only your wallet but to your well being.
