    A guy that read PT Barnum's quote "There is a sucker born every minute" looked around and realized it was a truism. If there is any doubt ask the OP
    Abort the Obamanation not the Constitution

    Those who would, deny, require permit, license, certification, or authorization for me to bear arms are as vile, dangerous & evil as those who would molest, abuse, assault, rape or murder my family

    I've never seen any of these badges. Or, anyone wearing one. Does anyone have a pic. Not of the badge, but of the idiots wearing one.

    I'm a newb to CCW, but I've never wanted a badge before.

    If you want to wear a badge become a cop. Can any any of you guys spell L-O-S-E-R?

    2. Don't keep it rattling around with your change. Waving it around like a ninja throwing star is sure to get you laughed at.

    3. Most LEOs that have their badges off duty, have them in a nice badge wallet (Police Badge Holder). Flip it open, badge on one side, ID on the other. Yes, real cops have IDs. Badge without ID = probably not a cop.

    4. You could just as easily have a badge that says "EMERGENCY MEDICAL TECHNICIAN" or "FEMALE BODY INSPECTOR" or "SECURITY ENFORCEMENT OFFICER" (Galls® Security Enforcement Officer Badge - BC002 : Galls) which would alleviate that whole wanna-be-a-cop stereotype. As long as it isn't in somebody's face, nobody is going to be reading it anyway.

    5. Usually on-duty undercover or plainclothes LEOs are the only ones wearing their badges on leather badge holders, either on their belt or a neck chain.

    6. If you are small town, no LEO is going to mistake you for a brother officer. Maybe a Fed, but not one of the hometown cops. BTW, Fed badges and ID are pretty standard.

    7. Hint: If you have a badge, DO NOT have your home state's seal in the middle. Use another state. Get the goofy scales of justice, or the Fire Dept. bugles, but NOT YOUR HOME STATE! (Impersonating a city/state official...)

    8. So do you get a badge style like your local LEO, Fed, or an oddball that nobody in your town wears? Up to you, but I would go with slightly foreign. Blackington (Blackinton Badge Company - Official Police Badges, Fire Badges, Military Badges and Security Badges) is the premiere badge maker, check them out, they have dozens of styles, many similar, several unique.
    I think Galls sells them without any restriction (this changes about yearly).

    Galls stock badges: Firefighter Badges - Volunteer Firefighter Badges - Fire Department Badges - Security Officer Badges - EMT Badges : Galls

    Galls custom badges: : Galls

    So, my recommendation is to have a badge that is similar in appearance, but not exactly like, one in use in your locale. Put it in a badge wallet. Put an ID in the ID window. I don't care if it's your Blockbuster ID, put something in there. Stick it in your pocket. NEVER take it out unless you are being approached by LEOs with guns drawn. Preferably already have it out. If not, take it out VERY SLOWLY while calmly and loudly saying, "I HAVE ID! I HAVE ID!"
    Why would you recommend a badge? It has not merit!
    When a cop walks over to you and you pull a CCW badge out it doesn’t mean anything. He is still going to check you permit and think why did this idiot pull this.
    I still have not heard a good reason to have one.
    Let me put this plan and simple. Unless you employer requires you to have a badge like police, fire, etc. YOU DONT NEED ONE!

    The one merit of a badge, IMHO, as previously posted, would be as part of an open holster protest when in a prohibited area.

    The holster and 'badge' would compliment each other. Of course, a 'Forcibly Disarmed for Criminal Convenience' T-Shirt with an empty holster would probably get the message across better.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    People that would want to wear a CCW "badge" are really just (1) Rambo wannabes, (2) LEO wannabes, or (3) stupid. What part of "concealed" do they not understand?

    As I read the original post, my mind flashed back (as it tends to do at times) to an old movie, "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre", with the classic, "Badges? We don't need no stinking badges!", line...

    When it all goes down, when it's really SHTF time, there's just one badge you want to have.
    But, are you good enough?
    Well, are ya, punk?

    That reminded me of an incident many years ago in Taiwan. I was in a very long narrow mens room. A soldier/Cop (whatever he was) walked in, laid his submachine gun on a table right by the door and walked to the last urinal about 30 feet away.

    I couldn't get out of there fast enough.
