    Oh no he didn't..

    You will not find many if any people on this site that advocate the use of CCW badges. Most responses will be on the line of impersonating an officer and such.

    It has been discussed here before, and my recollection is that the vast majority of our members consider them to be an excellent indicator that the bearer is:

    • a wanna-be cop, and / or
    • an unrepentant mall ninja, and / or
    • a complete whacker

    the idea does not appeal to me re having the badge as it can cause as many problems as you can think of, but the websites got me to wondering about it. I am a badge and patch collector, and some of the regular police websites had these on there too so I wondered. But I will stop wondering :)

    Wow, the only other kind of post that could have gotten this kind of response is if someone suggested that Obama and Hillary run on the same ticket.

    I am afraid you will be the butt of many jokes if you waste your money on one.

    I was advised by an acquaintance who is LE that it might be a good idea in a situation where police were arriving and you were the one holding a gun. I ordered a badge. I saw all the negative feedback on the forums. The badge never arrived. The credit card refunded my money. I've not ordered elsewhere and have no current intent to, but I am unpersuaded by the negative arguments.

    I still haven't herd much discussion about the "handy to have when LE arrives and your holding the gun" vs. impersonating a LE officer to a civilian.

    I'd kinda like one, myself. I'd get one with a chain around my neck, one to hang off my belt, one to have in my wallet, one to flash at Wal-Mart security, no wait, that's another thread...

    Here's the Sticky thread.

    It says it all.

    We are not going to beat this poor old again.

    Not on my watch.



    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.

    Rudyard Kipling
