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.
I'm partial to my Sheriff Ricochet Rabbit badge when I carry.

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

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 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.
But how did you know?
SOMEBODY has to have a picture of his car.......you know the one. The white Crown Vic with Green lettered trim and light bar.....come on, someone!
