Don't wish to have my first posting construed as argumentative however, there are a variety of reasons this gentleman could have been wearing his ccw badge w/ an empty holster. Perhaps he was a poser, but so what then. Let him have his moments of feeling signifigant and important. Obtaining a CCW permit may well be his most esteemed accomplishment that he wants to share with everyone. Most of us are more discreet in wearing ours if we have them at all. The badges are a good way to readily identify you self to Law Enforcement in a pinch prior to presenting them with your permit. If one does decide to wear a badge engraved with Concealed Weapon/Carry Permit I would suggest be a bit discreet in the manner in which you expose your badge. Reveal it when duely appropriate. Thanks fopr letting me express my thoughts.
