    Funny thread!!

    The only code word we have is that my wifes 9mm shield is called "lem" from the tv show "the shield."
    The only value it carrys is that it rides in the center console of her car most of the time and on trips. We can talk about it without anybody knowing we are talking about a gun. "Do you have lem?" Yep! Mostly as a reminder to remove it when the car gets parked outside overnight or for long periods.

    I carry concealed 99% of the time in public so she knows i have mine.


    As a side note: many police departments are switching to "plain speech" radio communication vs the old 10-codes. Better cross agency and emergency situation conprehension.

    My wife and I have a safe word for our home. It's not very widely distributed at all, but the concept is if a friend has to get into our home at night for some bizarre reason they shout the word and we know it's a friend. Other than that, when out and about we don't have a code. We do a very good job of communicating without words. We can practically hold conversations.

    As far as I can remember my wife has never heard me use a command voice nor speak in anger. I've yelled at my share of drivers, but there's a difference between annoyance and sincere anger. I suspect if it happened she'd know in a hurry something was wrong.

    Also she carries and has good SA, knowing that she has to be on her toes moreso than I do. She knows that if I were to get in a physical altercation I could hold my own with anyone not trained pretty well in hand-to-hand, but she's small and has to take every advantage she can.

    we have "key words" that apply to a handful of situations (all clear, duress, be more aware, etc.) and we both think very much alike so they're pretty much unforgetable. We don't share the details with anyone.

    Yeah we have a distress word because there are some situations where you may need it. Now granted I may just say GUN, RUN or GET DOWN but I don't leave anything to chance. We also practice it. I wont get into the scenarios but it's a valid tool. Like Burger Boy's example of his gun nicknamed Rusty. If my wife was to call me Rusty I would know something was up.

    If in public and I something gets my attention I tell my wife to "watch your purse"
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Code words can get you in trouble. I told my wife to "Get Down" and she got up and danced...




    Please note sarcasm... but code words take time to decipher and that split second or two may be the difference between talking to the coroner or the police afterward.

    That's funny Cook. Seriously though you need both. If you were having a garage sale and you're wife realized a man approaching and talking (interviewing and positioning) was about to do something she could call you by that wrong name or say "Honey, go get Rusty to come help us". The criminal would have no clue you were about to round the corner with a Glock held behind your back.

    There's never one simple solution...

    I have never been much for code words/phrases but my wife knows anytime I use the Vietnamese word lets "di- di- mau" (to go)it means to take caution, there is a serious problem and we are to leave now without hesitation. I have used it once in a beer joint and she knew to follow my lead, in this case, she followed me out a side door without hesitation. Anytime my wife wants to know if I armed she will ask "do you have a companion".

    No code words - usually the wife or one of my kids whispering to me, "Do you have your gun?" because they saw someone suspicious.

    That's an old Vietnam era joke that, if you don't know it, I don't intend to explain.

    The only code word I ever needed to alert the wife something bad is about to happen is "Oh crap!"--in it's unprintable form, of course.
