I think I paid around $130 a year or so. I have a CHL so it is a little higher than if I didn't. Also since I move around a lot I have their "cross-state" protection. They will represent me in any state that has reciprocity with Texas for concealed carry.
The selling point for their service for me was, any shooting in Texas (justified or not) has to go to the Grand Jury for a hearing. The lawyer fees for advice and whatnot just to get to the Grand Jury will cost a minimum of $10k and most in recent years have been around $20k. $130 a year is much cheaper than $10k!
If you have to undergo trial then thats even more money. The guy in Houston a few years ago that shot the two guys who were robbing his neighbors house with a shotgun had over $400k in lawyer fees before he was acquitted.
Practice doesn't make perfect, it make permanent.
When I hear a Liberal say "I can speak for gun owners because I own a shotgun" I just want to scream "Well I can speak for vegetarians because I like lettuce on my cheeseburger!"
