    Diana Crawford heads up Ace Insurance. She is one of us, and good folk. She had the best price on my Instructor Insurance.

    Sportsman's Ins is a good one, too.

    Check with your the company that does your home insurance. Make sure your covered when traveling with the firearm.

    I would suggest buying a good safe instead. Insurance companies want to charge you around 10 percent of the value of the gun. After 10 years you could have bought another gun. Buy a safe put everything in it, including your other valuables as well and you will be ahead of the game.

    Check your current Homeowners policy. Most of the time this will be the most competitive (fwiw - I have $18K+ on my HO policy for $250). Also as stated above make sure it is covered AWAY from your home address. Could be public or private property and in or out of state. Also inquire if it would be covered if you were using it for tournament competition. EVERY carrier's conditions of coverage are NOT the same. Don't wait til you need it to ask the questions. If your HO policy is not competitive or does not cover the above situations then shop your policy (s) for one that does or use above mentioned or price NRA policy. JMO John in Iowa
