    I have a CCW permit for CA and am a member of USCCA. I carry insurance through USCCA for my legal defense in a firearm incident should one ever occur. While I reside in Northern CA, may I still indicate your firm as my lawyer should such an event occur? David E Woodhams

    I also have a Utah & Nevada CCW and have USCCA for legal insurance if such an event would occur. Is it ok to name your firm as legal counsel or is there a more formal manor for such listing? Thank You for all of your assistance and website information James S.
