What is usually done? Are there places that cover these items like a tsmg - separately from and/or included with your regular insurance?
Collector cars have companies like Heggerty, in Traverse City, MI. that cater to the collector car industry. I insure classics thru them, with a policy that is based on VALUE, nothing else. Heggerty knows collectors maintain and are more carefull driving their cars than modern car drivers with their modern cars. The prices are (in MI - no fault ("our fault") insurance state) about half to less than conventional methods.
Along with a good safe - what recommendations are out there?
Thanks for a reply!

Short of that you have to get an Inland Marine policy on each item. Pretty expensive. I did the Inland Marine thing once. Waste of money.
NFA weapons are valuable because they are transferrable. A stolen gun has little value.

First is Collectibles Insurance Agency (CIA) that I use. Brochure says and this is a fact just to list make, model and description. Brochure also says which I can not vouch for that the list is not disclosed to anyone and is not entered in a computer.
This is a good value compared to NRA endorsed below.

In my case I collect more than shoot.
I have in writing 3 X per year shooting is OK, I wish I shot that often!

I am planning on contacting both places.
I am surprised about CIA the no shooting type of statement! Obviously you were too. These guns were made to shoot - same as my cars are made to drive.
Who counts how many times you shoot?? Theres no odo on a tsmg!
Thanks again for the advice!
