One of the first ideas raised when TCHA was formed was to look for some kind of legal protection for members who had to defend themselves on the street, then had to defend themselves in court. Over the years several insurance programs were proposed to help pay for legal representation during that critical time, but under Texas state insurance regulations none were feasible.
Now we may have the key to providing this important member benefit. Instead of an "insurance" policy the folks at the CHL Protection Plan are writing a "legal services contract" that pays for legal representation from the initial incident through the grand jury hearing. Members are covered for any self-defense use of a concealed handgun in Texas or in states where we have reciprocity.
Any Texas concealed handgun licensee is eligible for the protection, and qualified CHL instructors can sign up to be agents, earning a commission selling the contracts.
