New firearms insurance from Lockton Affinity

Through a new partnership with Lockton Affinity, every gun sold at a Ducks Unlimited event comes with a FREE 90-day insurance policy. Check your DU banquet kit for the insurance certificates that are to be given to each person who purchases or wins a firearm at a DU event. Also included in the banquet kit is a supply of cards that are to be attached to the trigger guard of every gun. The cards explain the FREE insurance policy and provide contact information for Lockton Affinity.

This program provides added value at no cost to the committee and generates additional revenue for Ducks Unlimited.
