    I'm sure there is someone who carries a CCW badge on their belt. ;)

    Thinking again... The above scenario would assume (to me) that your wearing a jacket and it is opened. If you approached and jacket was closed then opened to show I would be skeptical. That is just me I don't trust much beyond my world.
    I was just thinking saying you are somewhere and it's getting robbed, you see someone else pull a gun and there is a badge on his belt, are you skeptical? or do you take it at face value?

    when we're off duty, we're required to have our badge on the belt in close proximity to the gun, so I never have used a badge wallet

    we're also required to keep our LE id card on us at all times and its in the wallet with the check card, insurance, CHL, etc
    I've been thinking about getting the LE id out and carrying it separately .....just haven't done it yet, but sounds like good idea

    I have an ID in my wallet at all times.

    In uniform, I use a separate wallet with ID and a Star in it, with nothing else except a few buisness cards and around 30 bucks in cash.

    I do have a clip on belt badge when I am wearing an unconcealed gun, which is actually the law here.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    I carried my ID and badge in a credentials case in my left rear pocket - but sitting on the blasted thing all day was literally starting to be a PITA.

    Now, I just carry the ID by itself, in a clear plastic sleeve. I don't want folks in line seeing a badge or police ID, so I don't keep it in my regular wallet.

    As others have said, the badge means nothing without the ID. If I am challenged (while out of uniform) I will hold my ID up above my head and follow the instructions of the uniformed officers.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    Interesting you mention CHL. I'm thinking of putting mine with my shield/id as it does have my agency name and title on it.

    I'm still getting used to carrying two wallets. I have my shield & id in it along with an emergency credit card. The one I got has spots for two IDs a shield and 3 other card slots but no money pocket. Carrying it in the rear pocket is ok, but in the front can be bit uncomfortable depending what pants I have on and how much room the pockets have. With cargos it's not much of an issue at all.
