    I'm 100% with the "concealed means concealed" group. If I can't conceal well, I'll be more self-conscious, detracting from my situational awareness and making me less likely to develop habits of mind and behavior that go along with being armed as a "default condition." If I could, I'd conceal in my leg like RoboCop.

    A few years ago a couple were involved in an attempted armed carjacking. The owner of the car fought with the BG for his gun while his girlfriend called 911.
    She described in detail her boyfriend. An officer arrives and the girlfriend is shouting donít shoot the guy in the red jacket or something to this effect to describe her boyfriend, the good guy. The cop pulled a 12 ga. and shot both of them killing the good guy. I donít care where you live, stupid people sometimes wear police badges.

    A badge wouldn't have saved his life though.

    To me it sounds very strange how you can shoot someone that isn't a threat to the police or to somebody else (I presume he wasn't about to kill the suspect).

    Again, I'd have to say if cops have their guns pointed at you... what's wrong with doing exactly what they tell you to do?

    I'm certainly not going to be pulling anything out of my pockets... Badge, ID or anything else.

    Once they have their guns back in their holsters, there will be plenty of time to show ID, show ccw permit or anything else they require.

    If they want to cuff me and dig through my pockets themselves for my ID, I got no problem with it.

    My goal, and only goal, is to not get shot by the Po-Po and I don't need a badge to accomplish that.

    In fact, having a badge, may end up being the cause of you getting shot. I can see a scenario where being caught up in the heat of the moment, with adrenalin pumping, you may be anxious and too excited to try and get your badge out to show them, causing them to see your movements as "furtive" and forcing a nervous one to shoot before he sees what actually comes out.

    I don't know... just the way my mind thinks.

    YMMV

    So true so true!



    When I was in the 6th grade I carried a badge!
    I didn't have a weapon but my instrument of attack
    was a broom handle with a red flag on the end.

    There was NO JAYWALKING at my crossing!!!!

    I think everyone here should own one and display it proudly for all to see on your belt. Oh yeah by the way, y'all let me know how that works out for you.

    When I was in high school or just after, I wanted a badge, and at one point I bought one at the local "Ben Franklin Five-and-Dime" store. I took it home, and said to myself, "Boy, I am really impressive now!"

    I then threw the badge away and haven't been troubled with such concerns since.

    And I remember those ads - right next to the X-Ray Vision Goggles and the Garlic Gum.

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...
    I could understand it as a protest against "gun free zones" but you say this mall allows CCW and he has an empty holster?

    If you live in Arizona, permit holders are not allowed to carry a concealed carry badge, by law. Flash one of those, you will be going to jail and probably be the butt of the joke all the way....
