    Always make sure when you have your CCW Badge displayed that your Beanie has the Propeller in the right direction. Also...Always wear your sash on the Right shoulder. You should be good to go.

As he got closer I saw that the badge was the star in the circle type, like the US Marshals wear. This got my attention and as he started to pass by us, I looked very close at it and was stunned to read "Concealed Permit Holder" on the badge. Then I looked and saw his openly carried EMPTY holster on his right hip just behind the "I'm an idiot wanna-be badge".

    I didn't say anything to him though I wanted to. I figured it wouldn't do any good because if he's dumb enough to buy one of those stupid badges, he isn't going to like me telling him he's dumb for wearing it.

    This was the first time I have actually seen someone with one of those idiot things and I was kind of shocked.

    By the way, I was armed with my Glock 23, on my right hip, 2 spare magazines on my left and a snub nosed .357 revolver in my right front pocket. I was concealed, wearing my Glock in an IWB kydex concealment holster with my untucked T-shirt covering everything. The "Mall Vice-Ninjas" never gave me a second look...
    LOL that is just like those goof balls that wear the SOA patches and Lone Wolf patch. Funny stuff.

    Went riding up in Kansas last week and seen a fella on a nice custom bike sporting a SOA patch on his vest. I have to admit that I was a bit surprised. I didn't know folks actually wore them out in public.

    Are there real 1% clubs in Kansas? If not that may be why. There is a decent H.A, Outlaw, and Diablos presence in NH and I would expect that someone Sporting an SOA patch would not have a good day. I have yet to see someone riding with an SOA patch but I have heard of it in other areas. Lone wolf is something I have noticed a handfull of times. But Lonewolf doesn't have a location being claimed so they only get looked at funny and not beaten up. I don't understand wearing that stuff myself.

    Speaking of riding though mlr1m. Have you checked out that 10 pocket leather vest? I bought mine from leatherup.com it is very comfortable and has some nice ccw pockets on the inside. for the price it is very durable, I have not had it ever pop open or anything like that on me when going down the highway (as it has 4 snaps). I must admit this is my first one and I don't know if that is actually a common problem but I have read of people complaining about it from other vests. Just wanted to pass the info to a fellow rider.

    The concept of "CC badges" is insane. Simply a method for "look at me" idiots to clamor for attention. Unfortunately, "stupid" is not illegal.

    That is too weird. Love the show but 1% are not citizens and have a whole different set of standards rules and ethics. I have never seen of any club so in touch with their inner little girl. For all the crying you'd think they were a some kind of woman's support group, not a bike club. And the entire club is a pack of cheese eating rats. Guys I grew up with would help the guy stabbing them to death not get caught before even considering being a stool pigeon. As unthinkable as molesting a child just not an option for them. So while a real fun show not a group of guys I'd ride with and sure would not consider wearing a wanna be 1% patch that said I was a member of a crying girly club of rodents. Your right about as lame as a CCW badge.

    The only patches I've ever come across here in western Oklahoma are some Mongols I come across now and then. Never seen more than one or two at a time. Hadn't hear of the vest. Gonna check into it.

    I should have put a link. Xelement Men's 10 Pocket Premium Black Leather Vest the photo where you can see the zipper shows a botton to the left of the zipper, that botton opens to the concealed carry part. there is one on both sides so it doesn't matter if you are right or left or carry two. Fits full sized HG very comfortabley imo as well. I tryed putting my ruger p-85 in the concealed pocket and it fit great. I couldn't tell it was in there from looking in the mirror and it wasn't uncomfortable when sitting. front four snaps pop off with ease making a fast grab pretty easy. Would recommend ordering one size up if you do. I got a xxl and it fits pretty tight and still you can't tell when a full size HG is there. If you like to put a jacket under your vest go up two sizes (I should mention I keep my laces tight so that plays a role as well, I don't care for there being a gap. I know some people like them loose). That site has a great policy and really works with you if you need to send anything back. They are typically my go to for riding gear.

    Sorry to be off topic fellas just passing some good word about a great cc vest.

    What is the difference between someone wearing a concealed carry badge and a person wearing a TSA badge? Neither one are cops.

    One may be a job requirement and gets paid for being a jackass the other does it for free?
