    I like the idea about a sticky or FAQ section addressing this.

    While 99.99999999999% of us think that a badge is a bad idea, it's a valid question to ask.

    Several years ago when I bought my first pistol, I heard some guys in a discussion about whether badges could keep you from getting shot.

    I then asked this same question on a different forum back then and got my head handed to me. The concensus seemed to be that if you asked the question, you were a moron.

    A brief discussion about it is all it takes for most people to realize that it is a bad idea.

    I think its good to discuss this question from time to time for the newbies.

    A sticky could make the info readily available without subjecting us to repeated badge discussions.

    Besides, Thumper, I don't need no stinkin' popcorn!!! I'm fat enough as it is.

    I think one reason why this badge topic comes up so often on all of the gun forums, inlcuding ours, is that many of the gun magazines advertise these things.

    Like Guns magazine, for example. A recent ad pictured a shield-type badge, accompanied by flowery prose, like "Identify Yourself". "This Badge May Save Your Life". "Police Quality. Gold Plated". "100% Legal For Permit Holders", blah, blah, blah.

    This is all advertising hype, of course, but people fall for it.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Its in a gun magazine?

    The problem is, if it is advertised in a gun magazine, I want it! It's just a trained response, sorta like Pavlov's dogs. It MIGHT help 1 in a 100 times, but NOT HELP, or worse, most of the time. My .02...

    Im fairly new as a member and I could write for days on how horrible of a concept this is. I have great respect for the word HOKEY right now. It actually embarasses me at so many levels. It irritates me at all of the rest.
    Moving on to other things.

    Heya - saw the incoming links on my sitemeter, and decided to register here.

    Please, kids, don't be a Mall Ninja, and don't carry a CCW badge.

    As you were.

    If BGs can get illegal guns, what makes you think they wouldn't have illegal badges? Now, who do the cops shoot, you or them?
