So I can't be alone, I'm just the only person who sticks around to defend myself. I would mention their names, but I assume they wanted to remain anonymous or they would not have sent me a PM.
    This forum is a little different then a computer forum or car forum. We talk about real life or death scenarios and the best way to go about dealing with these scenarios. There are LEOs, Military, even professional firearms instructors on this site with a vast amount of knowledge. You are not getting personally attacked, you just have the privilidge of hearing a lot of very good opinions and answers to your questions. Don't take it as a personal attack, these are people trying to help you that have way more experience in the self defense world then you do.

    I think I'll stick with my tactical-ninja beanie.






    Regardless of who came up with it first, I still think it's stupid.

    I haven't read all the posts, but FWIW I always try to be armed, I always try to be the grey man.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Why in "the wide wide world of sports" would I advertise that I am carrying a weapon for self defense??? The element of surprise and the fact that I don't look like someone who would be able to defend myself are a benefit to me. If I am going to be approached by a criminal...I don't want him to alter his tactics based on MY having a gun. Keep them guessing. Let him think I am some sweet helpless Nana. It may be the last HUGE mistake he ever makes.

    Come to think of it, I've never seen a single rider on the short bus. You may be on to something there.

    I am also carrying $750 in my right front pocket and I have an attractive wife who works at night and must leave in a dimly lit parking lot at 555 main st.

    I would be as likely to wear a shirt like that, as I would have been to wear a shirt that said, "I am a cop." Not even on my last day.

    I think it would be easier to wear a shirt that says "Bad Guys, Shoot me first!"

    Thumbs up Concealment

    Wearing any type of info that advertises you are carrying a weapon, just makes you more of a target, to those around you ..... good or bad.

    I don't know, why would you do that? Why do some people open-carry their weapon? After all, I posted this in the open-carry section so I figured people reading it would be people who already practice or wish they could practice open-carry. Its the same philosophy, after all.

    Even when someone decides to OC, ppl don't notice it. I've done it a few times and friends of mine have asked me if I had it on my hip the whole time.

    The issue with the shirt is it is in the middle of your chest, where average Joe public usually does not look at your hips (kind of a social faux pas) it is socially acceptable AEB all the clever and funny t-shirts. On the other hand, it has been my experience that the only people looking at my waist line have been: interested in firearms, in law enforcement, interested in me, or I walked past them when they were seated.

    So, again in my experience, wearing a shirt that says “I’m carrying” is not the same as going about your everyday business with a pistol on your hip. It’s kind of like saying the beam from a light house is the same philosophy of a candle on the shore….

    With all that said, it seems as you have already made up your mind. I gathered from the title of your post that you wanted others opinions, you have them. Why are you continuing to argue? Gun brand shirts have their place on the range, that’s about it. To me it’s like tap out and affliction gear, it belongs in the gym period. That’s my opinion, you asked for it you got it. If you are trying to change the minds of the board members you are not doing a good job.

    It’s your life my friend, if you chose to wear the shirt do so in good health! Enjoy your weekend
