Default thoughts on conceal carry badge

I've seen these badges and have considered getting one. Here are my thoughts. #1 If I'm in a store and bend over to get somthing and my shirt rides up exposing the grip of my pistol some people will panick posably call 911 or get manager of store. If you had the badge concealed next to firearm it may reduce reaction. #2 I know probably will never happen but if your at a store,movie theater, any where in public and you have to engage a bad guy the badge could help identify you to other ccw holders or Leo as a good guy reducing the chances of being fired on. Please give me your thoughts or any pro's or

Bad idea.

You dont need a flashy badge to "show off" your cch/cpl.

CONCEALED carry means nobody needs to know its there.

You don't need a LOOK AT ME.

I could make a list of a bunch of guns i have, or "have", or wish I had. Why would one feel compelled to provide that infornation freely? Do you feel the need to show off? Is it some immature game of oneupsmanship?

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

The badge isn't going to convince anyone you are safe. If you expose your concealed carry people are going to react...the badge won't mean squat. If you flash it LE may arrest you for impersonating an officer. Keep your concealed carry concealed...printing or brandishing is a crime in some states so be careful.

It's legal to open carry in Nebraska, but in the city of Omaha you have to register any handgun to do it. Conceal carry you only register your self.

This was covered in another thread long ago. At first I argued, "why not? If someone decides they want one, fine"

I was convinced later that it's a bad idea. I can't remember why, but I still feel that way.
