    Agreed! Better to have a Batman outfit on! At least the LEO would be able to discerne the BGs from the wackos. LOL!

    We don't need no stinkin' badges, sashes, spandex outfits (Unless on "hot" starlets) or character testimonials/references. The "what to do" has been well gone over in these threads, ad infinitum. Leave it at that.

No, you certainly wouldn't. No more than you would wear adult diapers on top of your pants. People that want to mock an item should at least know what it is and how it works.
    Ok, fill us in here. (I believe this is the guy that initially brought up this product) What don't I know about what it is and how it works? It is a sash you deploy after a shooting to prevent a blue on blue or blue on ccw incident. Incidents that apparently occur apparently on average every 18 months. What did I miss? If you are going to call me out please provide more insight.

    How bout this.... A hat... With a light.... Post shooting the hat lights up like a lighthouse and shoots fireworks into the sky... blue for police and orange for ccw and pink for Miss America. At the same time a strategically placed siren in the seat of your pants starts playing the Star Wars theme song. THAT will save lives. No one try to patent that before I do.

    Ah come on GG, making fun of Sheepdogs and CCW Badges is kinda like a sport on these forums.

    True, but I would rather a forum of informational value rather than entertainment value.... if I had my druthers.

    Pinning a CCW Badge on Daisey would be a very bad idea, IMHO.

  8. I'm not trying to put down this product. It's an attempt reduce risk, but doesn't necessarily mean it will lower risk.

    Short of another police officer requesting assistance on the radio, in uniform, and near a marked police vehicle - everyone will have to comply with lawful orders until the area is safe. Simply having a sash, or CCW badge, or a police badge in plainclothes for that matter, won't give you protection or make the officer think you're one of the good guys.

    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.
    The sashes and badges do seem very wanna be - mall ninja-ish. However, I do know of one case quite a few years ago, where the cops walked(were called) into a situation with several BG's and several fatalities. a GG had the final BG down at gunpoint when the (very wired) cops arrived and the GG ID'd as a GG with one of those POS dime store badges. The cops chewed his butt about it, but it kept him safe until the cops took everybody into custody. No officer involved accidental shootings that day.
    War to the Knife, Knife to the hilt.
    If we don't want to live in a trashy area, we all have to be willing to help pick up the trash.
