    I think they'd make a fantastic gift for the self-important firearm carriers on your holiday shopping list.

    ok my honest opinion whould be that I do not see myself using one. Or recommending one to somebody.

    So my question is this now....Since it looks like a beauty queen banner. Should you or the person deploying it answer the world hunger question??? and then smile and wave for the camera?

    Sorry had to make the joke.

    Why does it take so long for someone to post common sense. There is absolutely no way to know if a person wearing a police sash is a LEO or a maniac.

    For use AFTER a shooting.

    Having not been in a shooting, I am not sure how I would react. I have been in a few altercations at adult beverage establishments though, and I know how the adrenalin was after those incidents. So.... finding my card that basically says I will give a statement after talking to my attorney and remembering to get my sash out of the car might be little hard to do. I don't think I would waste the money. YMMV

    Now, for those who have been involved in numerous zombie attacks, had several occasions to draw your weapon, carry a CCW tiara badge, or are bonefied sheep doggies, (No offense intended for the real puppy above.) you should buy one. Perhaps two, you might need a back up in case the first one gets ripped.

    Fair enough. But - this is a new product, and it's being marketed to plainclothes police, security, etc, and just might catch on.

    Also, the idea of a "revealable" patch identifying who the good guys are isn't exactly new. FBI, ATF, US Marshalls, and various sheriff departments have had something similar for a while, in the form of "tear away" panels on jackets and vests and stuff.

    If nothing else, it's an interesting idea, that bears some serious consideration.

Come on, now, REALLY?

    What's to keep the criminal from making one of these in their garage or buying one off ebay?

    Oh, wait, I know! Let's make fake CCW banners illegal to possess! Yeah, that's it! :-)
    Yeah yeah NavyLCDR. With you, the only correct answer is "OPEN CARRY!" :p

    The website where you can purchase these does require proof that you are licensed to carry concealed.

    They do take custom orders. Website says to call for details.

    So a quick review. The arguments against this product (from those who actually read about the product and understand its purpose and use) are:

    1) It looks silly.

    2) Law enforcement may not take it seriously / it may not matter if you wear it.

    3) Bad guys could possibly catch on and make or buy one for themselves.

    4) It takes up more space on the belt.

    Arguments FOR the use of the product:

    1) After a defensive shooting, it is one more step you can take to clearly identify yourself to law enforcement in advance of their arrival. "Hello, 911? There has been a shooting. Bad guy is down. Good guy is holding him at gunpoint, wearing jeans, a tee shirt, and a safety-yellow colored reflective banner."

    2) Law enforcement MAY take it seriously, especially if an officer runs up on the scene after hearing shots, before you are able to make the call to 911.

    3) While bad guys COULD make one for themselves...not as likely, at least not for a while.

    4) It does't take up THAT much space on the belt. And if worn on the weak side with the magazine carrier, could actually help to balance out the firearm.

    Again...something to think about.
