USCCA and Rob Pincus Team Up to Provide Insurance, Training Package Deals

USCCA has teamed up with Rob Pincus!

What does this mean?  Well, USCCA is arguably the most successful carry insurance provider and Rob Pincus, who runs the Personal Defense Network, is a top-notch firearms trainer.  Now fans of both companies will have an opportunity to purchase bundled packages that provide the best of both worlds.

“USCCA and PDN were both created out of a need for affordable, credible and reliable products and services for those who seek to protect themselves,” said USCCA President and Founder Tim Schmidt in a press release obtained by GunsAmerica.

“As separate entities, we followed our own vision to get to where we are today,” he continued. “We also recognize, however, that there’s a shared mission between us. We embraced that shared mission, put our heads together and a partnership was formed.”

Likewise, Pincus was excited about the collaboration, saying in a blog post on his I.C.E. Training website, “The opportunity that our teams have to bring even more great information, education and services to our Members and the entire community of responsible gun owners is unparalleled. Keep a close eye on what we do!”

In my opinion, this collaboration is a direct response to the launch of the NRA’s Carry Guard, which was announced at the 2017 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits.

Carry Guard is billed as a one-stop shop for all one’s training and insurance needs, so to compete with this new offering it only makes sense for USCCA and PDN to collaborate.

The great thing for consumers is more options typically means quality goes up and prices go down.  We’re going to get way more bang for our buck.  If you haven’t dipped your toe into the insurance and training market yet, now is a perfect time to start shopping.

Personally, I’m biased toward USCCA and PDN.  I don’t know Schmidt personally, but I’ve worked a lot with his team and they’re all great dudes.  With respect to Pincus, I’ve interviewed him in the past but what sticks out in my mind is his five steps for surviving a home invasion.  It’s a very practical way to train.  Anyways, that’s my $.02.

If you have any experiences with other providers and training experts, feel free to share your opinions below.

    I agree wholeheartedly with this article that the two businesses joining force as a one stop service for conceal carry customers is a win win for all. In fact, this may just be the beginning of other like ventures (training institutes and insurance companies) to develop nation wide. I too am a member of USCCA and have and do subscribed to their CC insurance coverage. In addition, I train quite often at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute at Pahrump, Nevada to assure I’m up to date in effective defensive handgun techniques. However, combining the two services for one fee can be attractive, especially if other companies are competing for the same customer base. Prices will fall, no doubt. It’ll be up to you to decide who’ll meet your needs best. Right now, it’s not an exact one to one match of services provided by both entities. Due diligence will be needed in making the right choice.

    This is a good match up and good luck to both teams. I am a member of USCCA for insurance and am familiar with Mr. Pincus’s outstanding training videos. I believe this team will become a leader in education and protection for the CC public. Please keep up the good work gentlemen!
