It's not surprising that most of the models on the web site have their backs turned to the camera. They'd die of embarrasment if anyone recognized them!

If you are going to shoot at Mimes, should you use a silencer?? ( Steven Wright)
Instead of "CCW" they need to put "IDIOT" on them.

No Guns, No Safety, No Peace.
wow just wow. And the sad part is, there are people that see this and say to themselves "yes, this is a good purchase that i will use. I will put it on my discover card" Nothing like paying 18% apr on a pile of __________

HOE - LEE - CRAP !!!
Tell me this isn't real....
PLUS - how the heck can it be the law that "concealed means concealed", we aren't even allowed to so much as PRINT through a garment, but it would be somehow OK to wear a banner that says "I'VE GOT A GUN LOOK IT'S RIGHT HERE".

I think the concept is that you put it on as the incident is going down; or right after, before the police arrive - - but, yeah, it is still stupid, just the same.
I thought they were a gag at first. I guess stupid stuff sells.

Well it appears that one of these sashes even won some sort of industry award...
Body Armor & Safety
Winner: Brownells, QD-360-ID
“The QD-360-ID is a fluorescent yellow-green banner that identifies a non-uniformed officer during emergency situations. The identification banner stows inconspicuously and conveniently in a compact belt pouch that looks like a cell phone carrier and is easily deployed using the non-shooting hand.”

Results from the 2011 Innovation Awards - Officer.com
Yeah, but this Innovation Award is from Officer.com . . . an LEO-dedicated forum. It is probably for a sash saying, "POLICE" for off-duty officers who carry a badge. I have no issues with something like this for off-duty LEOs . . no more than I would for them carrying a badge on a chain around their neck when something is going down and they aren't in uniform.
My heartburn is with the CCW banners (and badges). Apples & oranges, in this case.
I'm getting one. Going to keep it right there next to my CCW badge..NOT
I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.
