    An Idea, nothing more....

    While I know that concealed is concealed.....I just though I would share with you an Idea that popped into my head a few weeks ago when reading some threads here. Just mentally picture yourself walking into your favorite restaurant and seeing a tee shirt with the photo below on it. This is just for the smirk/smile factor only.... no real reason to do this and give your self away, more like the secret hand shake premise. Although I might just get this shirt/sweat shirt made up for those days at the range when EVERYONE knows I am packin'. any comments?

    I don't think the general public, i.e. sheep, would understand it. I like it though.

    I agree, but the wolves might. Especially if we actually did wear this and some one blabbed. I personally would rather be a needle in a stack of needles than one in a hay stack...

    I'd like to see a shirt with just this on it:

    Good bet that anything publicly posted out here is seen by some criminals. Heck, if I were the sort, I would do my homework. Where else to get a sense for the tactics, thinking, pros/cons, risks/rewards, level of training, etc, of the more-aware segment of citizens. All from the comfort of the stolen laptop ...

    Nice graphic, though. I like it. Perhaps a "secret handshake," then, or a little gruff greeting: "Woof."

    Or, even a new emoticon with ol' Sam (or was it Ralph?) and Wile E.

    I like the shirt. There is more than a good chanch that the sheep would not preceive its meaning.

    In the same vein, I was just thinking the other day about license plates. I like SHEP DOG, and it is not taken in VA. OK you other Old Dominion members, don't steal my idea! I also thought about SHP DOG, SHEEP DG, even NO BAAAH. Check availability at: https://www.dmv.virginia.gov/dmvnet/...sp?PLT=&PLTNO=

    In my experiences, the "thug types" who are your typical "stick up guys" are not smart enough or think ahead far enough to do this type of research.
    Most BGs that take the time to research and plan are not going to rob the family on the street for their wallets; itís just not worth the risk. These guys are the ones who pick much more profitable targets.
    Your "average Joe" is far more likely to be targeted by a "thug" or "druggie" in their daily lives than the calculating criminal.

    too funny!!

    I think, however, that the point would sadly be missed by 99.9% of the sheeple.
