Yes, I realize that there is a slim chance of this happening but, say some disgruntled neighbor doesn’t like the idea of a perfectly normal/sane individual having firearms in close proximity to his house so he calls the law and uses the proposed new “Red Flag Law” to retaliate for some minor misunderstanding. If the new law requires the firearms be confiscated and they are taken and are held in some damp, dark police holding area. If the rightful owner gets to finally retrieve those firearms after he is proven totally innocent of the bogus charge and the firearms are all rusty and almost unworkable, would the insurance coverage on these items be applied. Or if some of these firearms “disappeared” while in possession of the police, would the Insurance Company come through with replacements. This may never actually occur but just curious how the Insurance Company may be expected to handle such a scenario. I am posting this here due to the fact that we are talking about insurance on firearms.

Doesn't matter what their rates are if they don't pay out
I have never read on any forum of anybody discussing a claim with any of the firearm insurance companies. Maybe people are hesitant to post about their misfortune?

I think maybe its better to put money into a top of the line gun safe.

I have been with Eastern since 2014. I used to deal directly with Jack before his death. Presently I have $100,000 of coverage at a cost of $333 per year.

I have a monitored security system and three gun safes at home. The insurance is just... uh, extra insurance.

Fortunately, no claims!

You may want to compare coverage terms and rates. I did a lot of shopping and comparing before going with Eastern.

An expensive safe is many, many years worth of insurance premiums. Get the insurance and a good safe.
