Oh Good God, no! I make every effort to make sure no one knows I carry, the only person who knows I carry is my son. If I'm ever asked by a LEO I have my concealed carry license.

Carry quietly, discreetly; we don't need wannabe action starved people on the streets packing and ready to whip out a concealed carry badge.

Not saying to whip it out, I'm saying if you choose to open carry I can see where it wouldn't freak people out so much, that is all

Last Saturday I was in Dayton Ohio at a annual armature (HAM) radio convention (largest in the US) about 20,000 + people at Hara arena, lots of police to keep things civil JIC...

and I noticed 1 individual with a CC (gold) shield prominently displayed on his shirt... No it did not look good... No it did not get him anything special... and Yes I thought it a tad tacky!

I saw some idiot in a Baskin Robins wearing a badge that said " Licensed Security Officer" on his belt a few years back. I couldn't help myself I was on the the floor rolling. The louder I laughed the redder he got.

Assuming you're not walking around in a hot pink, tacti-cool, drop leg thigh holster, carrying a gold plated .50 Desert Beagle you'd be amazed how many people don't even notice you're carrying

i've seen those bright shiny gold badges they look pretty sharp but i wouldn't want one pinned to my chest
i saw them at the gun show where i think anyone can buy one even if they not ccwp holders? i don't know if you have to prove you are a ccwp holder or not in order to buy one..so can anyone just buy one or does one have to show themselves a ccwp holder to purchase one??
just curious though i don't want one for myself like another poster said 'i have enough to carry .........''
and i see no good reason to have one or carry one around either
i guess it's in our culture we go to scouts and earn badges and taught to proudly display them on a sash or uniform and many adult in other clubs gangs military and masonic orders have all kinds of ridiculous regalia to feed their egos and to let others know their 'importance' in such and such a group.......all that unnecessary junk is just that ;unnecessary junk. imo
even if someone gave me one i'd never carry it on my person much less wear the thing

momma take this badge from me.......lolz

Your HCP is your authority to be armed, you don't need anything else. Badges are for authority and we ,as private handgun carriers, possess no special authority.

nobody should have 'authority' over anyone else i don't care if they have a badge or not some silly badge shouldn't give anyone a right to have any authority over anyone else

All you need is your CCW card in case police want proof. Badges can go to peoples heads and make them thing they have more power than they do. I don't want people to know I carry. By the way in Oklahoma you can now open carry.

In case you were wondering this:

Hey OP , you were asked a very specific question, "How many bad guys have you gone up against?".

I think it a fair and relevant question. You come in here playing the expert we’d like to see your curriculum vitae.
With out it this is just a bunch of hot air

was a real question and I'd like a real response

Here goes another rant...... feel free to disagree or even to take issue with it...

I started to read this whole thread and.. just like all the other dumb ass "ccw badge" threads I just couldn't get past the 3rd page...

Look.. it's really quite simple...

If you want to try to impress people with how bad ass you are.. dress like Rambo in camo...

If you want to try to impress people with how "just like the cops" you are... carry a ccw badge...

But if y'all decide to dress like Rambo or to pretend to be a cop with a badge... just ignore all the people on the sidelines who are laughing their asses off at both the wannabe Rambo.. and the wannabe cop.. because it will hurt your poor widdo "feelings".

Jumpin' Jeepers.... I can't believe people actually think carrying a gun makes them some kind of special "wet work operator" or "cop".... or anointed by God Himself to be a "sheepdog" entrusted to protect the "sheeple".

Grow up people! You do NOT carry that gun to impress people or to pretend to be something you aren't....... you carry that gun for one purpose only... to save your ass from a bad guy. Stop trying to aggrandize that simple fact.

Rant over..... please resume mentally masturbating the whole dumb ass idea of CCW badges.

Since the badge has no authority or force of law backing it, I strongly doubt you would have to show anything other than your money to purchase one. Frankly, to me they are nothing more than a toy for children. Or maybe a target if someone was dumb enough to try to use one to apprehend a criminal.

You can get them mail order form a catalog too I've never seen a requirement to prove you were anything more than a dumbass (buying the badge does that)

i for one wouldn't waste money on it unless i was required to have one rather than the permit the state gives which i applied for and that cost about 120 usd in florida plus postage for sending it return receipt certified mail
another way to rob the tax payers by charging them for a permit the constitution already says we had permission to have in the first place

Any one carry one? I here that it could cause more trouble than it might solve. Any LEO's have an opinion?

I volunteer as a reserve sheriff in my county. My advice to you, if you ever happen to find yourself in the aftermath of a justified shooting and you want the LEO's to pause and realize that you are not the threatening party, is to have your ID in your hand and your hands up when they arrive. If I see an actor place his firearm on the ground put his hands up with picture ID, I'm going to deal with him differently than someone else. You show me a badge, it better be one that was issued to you and not something you bought from the Sportsman's Guide or elsewhere.

I find that people who carry those badges are trying to put on some sort of "airs" that they are someone that they are not. If you are a concealed carry permit holder in your state, except for a few states, you will have an ID card that says so.

What he said... Sportsman guide sells them, nothing but your money is required to buy.....

I would much rather have my state issued cc license on a lanyard. Maybe one of those cool retractable ID clips!! Don't need no stinkin' badges :))

Perhaps someone will soon market "I have a concealed carry Permit" T shirts.

There are many laws, but there is no legal limit to stupidity.
