NRA Firearms Insurance Activation

A shooter had two shotguns stolen from his truck.  A member of the NRA, but had not activated his NRA insurance (a free $2500 policy) thus no reimbursement received.

Member of the NRA?

If you haven't activated your NRA firearm insurance policy, something that you need to do, as not an automatic enrollment upon membership purchase!

Go to the NRA website.  Log into the site (NRA membership number required).  Under member services find the area that covers insurance and enroll.

* You may be able to use this link an register without an account.


All NRA members in good standing receive $2,500 of ArmsCare protection at no cost to them. To begin receiving this coverage members must activate their No Cost benefits.

ArmsCare Firearms Insurance provides NRA members with protection for their firearms and accessories include scopes, rings, mounts, slings and sling swivels, which are attached to the insured firearm.
With ArmsCare Firearms Insurance, guns and accessories are protected from the following:
  • Direct physical loss
  • Damage
  • Fire
  • Theft (Theft from a vehicle is covered when it is the result of breaking and entering a locked vehicle or locked portion of the vehicle.)
Firearms do not need to be scheduled and serial numbers are not required
ArmsCare sells upgraded policy's starting at $65 a year for $6500 in coverage. 
Other then to draw your name to the ArmsCare company and the option to purchase additional insurance, is this the only reason that enrollment is not automatic, as firearms don't need to be listed?
You must likely will first have to make a clam against your homeowners police before they will act on your clam.  I won't swear to that, but my understanding from my readings.
Be warned, your homeowners coverage may be limited unless you have a rider and even with a rider it may not cover your firearm when not in the home.
