    I wrecked a motorcycle back in the mid 80ís and I had a pistol in my back pocket at the time. I was semi conscious when the paramedics arrived, but the fact I was armed was the last thing on my mind. I just made them aware I had a back injury and then I donít recall anything until the emergency room, doctor asking me a few questions.

    Two days later I woke up in ICU, and about a day or two later, a nice deputy visited, with a form for me to sign. It seems the emergency room found the pistol when they took my pants off, and called the Sheriffís department to come deal with it.

    The polite Deputy said he took it downtown, and said when I was up to it; I could pick my pistol up anytime I like, and gave me a receipt for it.


    OH, ya the forum he wanted me to sign was a ticket for careless driving. I beat that charge in court, I swerved to miss an oncoming car, was the reason I wrecked, not carelessness. The deputy was very polite in court and even apologies stating he did not know all the facts, just that the wreck area looked as if I was carless, and his supervisor told him to right a careless ticket.


    Anyway back to your question, I donít see any reason for a CCL bracelet

    I too applaud your efforts but I don't see a need for a bracelet.

    They will probley look in Your wallet to find out who You are and to call Family or next of kin. They will probley see Your permit/LTC.
    Good idea maybe the BG will pick up on it as well.

When I was in CA, before the sticker we would use a licence plate bracket, It would signify to other LE that we were "part of the family" The day I took that license plate bracket off was the day that a second strike 290 walked up to car and asked how long I had been a LE.
    Gotcha, I see your point now it's a valid arguement, but not all are carrying. Just like anything else I guess. I didn't put an NRA sticker on my car for that same reason so I'm with ya.

    My being upstanding and specifically not engaging in criminal or violent behavior should be enough of a sign.

    My wearing green (vs blue) on a given day doesn't inherently benefit me. My wearing any indication other than my firearm that I'm carrying a firearm doesn't inherently benefit me. What's the point, again?

    I can see your thinking, but wouldn't wear one myself for much the same reasons others have mentioned.

    With your drive and ambition you are gonna come up with something that people will want and will make you some money, unfortunately, this idea probably isn't the one. Gotta admire your ambition though, defintely keep it going.

    I pretty much agree with everyone here. People will come to recognize the bracelet and everyone will know.
    Protection is a responsibility not just a right.

    1 - You don't want to wear a bracelet or anything that would denote that you are carrying. Remember that if you are unconscious the first people to get to you will NOT be your rescuer. I can tell you story upon story of stolen wallets while pilfering of vehicles that occurred prior to EMS and/or LEO arriving on the scene and you don't want to give an indication to look for your weapon.
    You bring up a good point.

    Since we seem to always be carrying someone in your family or friends probably already knows that. It would be advisable to inform them that if you are ever involved in an accident that they should check on your weapon or alert the police if one isn't found.

    YOU don't want your gut to just disappear into some BG's possession with out reporting it.

    Being a former LEO and having seen some of the weird actions done by people in insulin shock, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that insulin dependent diabetics should not have CCW permits. They are not allowed to have commercial driving licenses for the same reason.
