    A Quick Survey

    I need to ask you for your opinions on a possible new item that just occurred to me that was much needed. Here goes!

    I have a friend who's a diabetic. He wears a Medic alert bracelet notifying medical first responders that he is a diabetic. I'm sure some of us know people who wear these types of items. My idea for a new product is along this line.

    Would you be willing to wear a bracelet or pendent indicating that you are carrying a concealed firearm. The scenario is as follows.

    In the event you somehow were rendered unconscious would you want "first responders" such as paramedics to know you are carrying a concealed firearm. This could be the result of a car accident, etc. Would you want a first responder to know that you are carrying a concealed firearm so they could locate it and secure it for you?

    I'm thinking of creating a bracelet or pendent that can be worn by CCW permitees. It's something that fills a need for CCW permitees. This will also assist medical first responders in the event of a medical emergency.

    Well, what do you think?

    I fail to see the benefit in wearing anything of the sort. First responders are probably going to find it anyway at which point, they'll probably call the cops or hospital security or whomever (which is, I'd imagine, the same thing they'd do if you had some sort of bracelet/necklace).

    like I said...I just don't think it's necessary.

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    Nope, not a chance.

    There's a reason it's called CONCEALED CARRY. The element if surprise is something I count on should I be confronted by someone intent on doing me or my family harm.

    Keep in mind that this would only be available to someone who were "up close & personal" in the event you had been involved in some type of accident.

    If you could not speak for yourself and were injured would this type jewelery work for you?

    The bracelet/pendent would not be readily visible to anyone other than an a emergency responder. It would be as unrecognizable as a diabetics jewelery.

    If that's the case, they will find the gun LONG before they find any jewelery

    Let me weigh in on this. As a former paramedic and now as the Director of one of the largest and busiest Emergency Departments in the region.

    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.
    2 - Don't assume that your weapon will be found. I have had many more than 1 person brought into the Emergency Department through the years that I was the one who removed their weapon. EMS and/or the police didn't even see it. Of course being a 2A advocate I don't freak as others do and I am very respectful of your weapon which I will safe and zip tie for you then place in the hospital safe for retrieval later.
    3 - There a significant number of people in hospitals and Emergency Departments that do NOT understand carry and would go ape if they found a bracelet that said you were carrying. They would then call every LEO in the state as they would be sure you were a criminal.

    Just my thoughts as an insider on this.
    The best preventative medicine is superior fire power.

    I applaud your entrepreneurial spirit, I personally don't want a anything to signal my CCW status but then again I also don't understand why LE would put a blue and black sticker on the back of their car. I actually honed the art of looking for concealed weapons by seeing a blue and black sticker at a gas station, waiting for the driver to get out and then watching. Like I said I think your way of thinking is great... keep coming with the ideas.

    The thin blue line represent that they are LE or family of LE, it has nothing to do with CC or OC. The thin blue line is a honor thing for LE that you apparently are not aware of, then again I am not sure many people are. Also Firefighters have the red line.

    What is this blue and black sticker?

    I do not think the bracelet idea would fly. I do like your entrepreneurial
    thoughts though.

    I see that "thin blue line" decal as another form of the "I Support the State Police/Sheriff/LEOs" stickers.

    It's code for "please ignore that number on your radar...."

    I am well aware of the status of the sticker, I choose to not put one on my car. The point I was making was, the sticker signifies that potentially someone in the car is carrying and in my opinion I don't like that attention. 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.
