Anyone know anybody with a "Concealed Carry Weapon" badge like you see advertised in gun magazines that say "someday may save your life". Or you can buy at gunshows without even proof of a CCW. I know of one guy who likes to flash it with his permit in his special wallet, like he's on Law and Order. I just wander if it would fit better up their ass parallel with the crack or perpendicular to it when they show it to the wrong guy(s) (COP ?) trying to be a cop wannabe and they shove it up his ass.

There was a member here that lost his CCL for flashing his fake badge in a bar.

I think they're very good to have, and it makes people respect you more. It's a better idea to have it on a chain around your neck, so you can whip it out faster.

The best one I heard of was, a "City Council" badge one of the young Councilmen in San Antonio, Texas had made.  He used it to get into the tittie bars for free until the press got wind of it.

well like the poster said, most of the guys who use the badges give others a bad name. They use them like trophies and flash them around as if we should be impressed.

Here in SC it is illegal to have or "flash" a CCW badge. I can understand a situation where the badge may save your life, but the law here specifically prohibits it. Flashing a CCW badge is kind of like saying "look at my penis, isn't it big!"

As long as he didn't have the weapon ON him in the bar he shouldn't have lost the CCL. In texas you get a 30 day suspension for first offenses. 2nd offense is 1-3 years. 3rd offense they revoke.

What state and what was the reasoning behind having it revoked? (other than being an idiot for having a CCL badge)

"You know those "Concealed Handgun License" Badges?" Archive Thread (sorry, non-Team Members)

3/6/2006. Classic.

Here's the way it starts out:

Well I had one.

And in doing so got arrested for a C Felony "impersonation of a police officer."

I am 31 and had had my CHL for about two years. I got my CHL because I live in rural Deschutes County Oregon and I take my Keltec P3AT fishing and hiking and I was trying to do the smart thing.

Anyways, this is what happened. I went out partying one night with some friends in late April.

I was having a smoke out front of a club when a plain clothed county deputy taps me on the shoulder. Apparently his girlfriend saw the badge when I had my wallet out at some point (still not sure how that happened) and pointed me out to this guy. He was a new cop, must have been 21 or 22 max. He asks me if I am a cop, and of course I reply "no I am not". He then asks about the badge. I explain to him what it was and inquire to as how the hell he knew I had it. He asks if I am carrying and I of course am not at this time and assure him that that is the case.

He and I talk for about 15 minutes about this, he was actually very nice.(he is off duty by the way.). He leavies me with my silly a** shield and takes my CHL card. He says he is going to hold onto it for the time being.

Three days later two sheriff deputies show up at my work. They ask to see the badge. I don't have it I tell them. They ask if would come show it to them the next evening. I agree.
I still had no idea of the charge I was about to get slapped with.

I show up at the Sheriffs office and show the one cop my badge. I explain again why I thought it might be a good idea.

He tells me he has to "process me". No Miranda, no citation. Just booked and released with a May 8 court date. I of course now am freaking out. I did nothing wrong besides have the badge in my possession (which is not a crime. It matched what I was licensed for precisely. No words like police, officer, sheriff, agent or otherwise implied LEO.)

I of course call my attorney and my friend at the DA’s office. She assures me that there is no cause for alarm and that they would never be able to convict on the evidence they have. (Did I mention she is a good friend?)

May 8 comes and goes, no charges, no indictment. The only thing that has happened is that two weeks ago I got a letter from the sheriff’s office stating they have revoked my CHL.

So here I sit, bewildered, bummed, confused, and the sincere feeling of being ripped off.
I am not a bad guy, I was not posing. I sincerely thought that all the stupid stuff the badge was marketed under. I even knew better because I have read all the negative stuff about exactly what I got myself into.

As soon as my attorney advises me that this matter is officially closed how the hell do I go about getting my CHL back? I think I may be scr*w’d.

I hope anyone who is in possession of one of those stupid shields throws it directly into the trash without passing go.

Thanks for listening.

I can't think of any situation that would be helped by someone flashing a toy badge.

I can think of many scenarios where having one would create problems for the owner.

The simple fact is that, in this country, badges are seen by the majority as symbols of authority. Most non-LEOs who are issued badges(like paramedics and firefighters) don't carry them when off duty.

Wearing or showing a badge is going to make most people think that you are an LEO. I suspect that in many cases, this is exactly the reason that CCW badges are carried.

Eh a hunk of flashing tin has no legal weight behind it. Your permit does however.
Personally I see no reason for one.
As someone else said the only way one of these is going to save your life is by deflecting a bullet.

The whole ad campaign of "THIS BADGE MIGHT SAVE YOUR LIFE!!!" is BS. If a BG has a gun "up", he probably won't hesitate seeing a badge (WTH, he's going down for it anyway) and too many cops shoot real cops who point a gun at them by accident.

The only possible thing I can think of is that some sheeple, upon seeing a CCW with a badge are less likely to freak, thinking that the CCW'er is an LEO.

Of course, that sword (dare I call it "semi-impersination"?) cuts both ways, depending on the way your state codes are phrased and the zeal of your local DA/PA, as we saw from our associate in OR.

I still think that the guy in Or could have fought the charge, as long as he didn't specifically identify himself as a police officer, however I'm not familiar enough with OR statutes to even be an Interweb expert.

Honestly I can not understand this. The only way someone is going to see my weapon is if A) I dont cover it effectivly, or B) if I have to draw down on someone. In the case of A, a badge isnt going to help me. In the case of be, I think the sheeple would already be upset, due to the crisis that required me to draw.
