Clearly I missed more than seeing guns, colleagues, and friends at the National Rifle Association annual meetings and exhibits last week. NRA CARRY GUARD was launched with much fanfare — including a cover over the cover of the May 2017 issue of The American Rifleman.
Fortunately others were on the scene and are starting to report on this major new development in Gun Culture 2.0. (The NRA involvement being new, not the idea of self-defense “insurance.”)
Kevin Creighton at Misfires and Light Strikes has a comprehensive comparison of the “insurance” side of the program in comparison to others, and Joshua at concealedcarry.com has compared CarryGuard to the Self-Defense Shield product offered by (NRAAM corporate persona non grata) United States Concealed Carry Association.
Please post links to other comparisons you find on-line in the coming weeks.
I am particularly interested in the training side of the program that is clearly announced on the cover of the Rifleman, but not yet available except to Gun Culture 2.0 gunlebrities like Colion Noir and Dana Loesch. Any NRA certified trainers out there who are willing to weigh in, please do so!
