About SAGE Program Underwriters

Chuck’s passion has always been to help neglected or underserved industries get a place at the insurance table. His expertise allows him to identify niches that others stay away from for the wrong reasons. He has done that very well for many years and started SAGE to take his passion to the next level. Join Chuck and SAGE on their mission to help those who need it.



As an avid sport shooter and outdoorsman, Chuck Holdren understands the shooting sports industry very well. In 2007, after repeated calls for help from a dozen ranges and gun store owners with workers compensation, Chuck worked with a national actuarial firm to prove that work comp insurance for the industry was grossly misunderstood.


Encouraged by his findings and over 30 years of insurance experience, Chuck created the first of its kind national work comp program for the shooting sports industry. This program has successfully helped hundreds of ranges, manufacturers and gun stores lower their work comp costs while greatly increasing the service and respect they deserve within the insurance industry.


With our exclusive insurance carrier partners, underwriting team, safety programs, technology platform and more, SAGE offers stability and services that are unmatched by others. Our customers turn to SAGE for our expertise, industry knowledge and ease of doing business the right way.


With over 85% of work comp for shooting sports businesses still insured by the states, there’s a real need and opportunity for change. SAGE is here to bring that change and support this great industry.
