    A solution to a problem which doesn't exist, imo.

If for some reason lets say you bent over and part of your weapon was exposed, the badge would be right next to it and people "shouldn't" get startled, seeing the weapon and CCW badge next to each other. Just playing devils advocate there, it's not really a bad idea given that particular use. Anyway, not trying to get off topic.
    Ok, this is the first logical use for a ccw badge I have heard. I can see where this could prevent trouble if your piece is mistakenly seen.

    If you really would like a badge, you can patronize this fool:

    Florida Firearms Training - Wallets and Badges


    He tries to masquerade as an advanced Firearms instructor, he advocates against badges and yet he sells them. I think they call that a hypocrite!

    Amazing how many times this idiocy gets re-hashed.

    Mall-Ninja wants to pretend he is like a cop because he has a CCW. He buys these badge things to show everyone he packs.

    Maybe we need some of these guys caught at a traffic stop, badge discovered and charged with impersonation. It will be all over the news.

    Badge sale business takes a turn for the worse.

    I agree with 1 thing said so far, if youre CC and you happen to lean over for what ever reason, and someone sees your gun, if they see a badge with it, maybe they wont freak out as much, without it, they may be concerned. Then again, Im against the use of a badge unless youre an LEO, FRA [fugitive recovery agent] or a security guard. No use other than those...Just opens more problems.

    I could see this being mistaken as a weapon when light hits it at night....Think it is a bad idea to carry a badge. You could find yourself spending lot's of cash to defend yourself in court! I'd rather spend the cash for a new weapon or ammo!

    Nope, that's not how it works, Doc! ANY media coverage has guys sitting in their La-Z-Boys going, "Wow! I didn't realize they made badges for CCW holders! I gotta get me one of these!" and they shoot straight for Google before the report about how dangerous they are is even over. It would increase badge sales ten-fold! Media coverage always increases interest and sales...always.

    I agree with those who feel it's another gimmick to help satisfy those who are looking for some lil' way or another to show people how awesome they feel they are 'cause they have a gun. Kinda titillating for some to, you know, let the gun "accidentally" be seen at Walmart... Same thing here regarding the item being discussed as far as I'm concerned. Those that have the quiet confidence to CCW don't need to show anyone anything in that regard. IMHO the badge alternative or anything related to a badge is nothing more than someones attempt to go into business and make a buck from those who want to "look the part" or whatever ya wanna call it.
