    Advertising firearms ownership?

    I have some NRA logoed hats and some from the Pikes Peak Gun Club but I find that I never wear them unless I am going to a gun show or to the range. The last time I wore the NRA hat elsewhere was to church and the pastor acted like hed hit a brick wall when he saw it. (Not sure why, he knows I carry in church)

    DW says shed rather I not wear the hats out in public w/ her as well. She also says I might as well wear a CCW sash as one of those hats when I go out.

    So my question and the topic of this thread is who else here forgoes the wearing of firearms related clothing because of the negative attention it sometimes brings?

    Whatever suits me on a given day I see folks all the time with NRA, FBI, Police hats so I dress however I wish.

    Just because you wear a NRA hat doesn't mean you're carrying, any more than wearing a camouflage hat means you're got a deer rifle with you.

    It just shows that you're pro-Second Amendment.

    The heck with the sash, wear your CCW badge.

    NRA Hats

    When I was a younger man my Policy was No NRA hat when I was Carrying. Yes NRA hat when I wasn't. I did it this way because I didn't want to advertise when I was carrying and wanted to bluff when I wasn't.

    Now: I'm not sure if there was any advantage to this Policy. Let me know what you think.

    Now: I always wear the NRA hat except when I'm wearing my "Infidel" hat. Again: I'm not sure if there's any advantage or disadvantage to doing it this way.

    Let me know what you think.

    To be honest I wear what I want and don't give much thought to it. Sometimes that include a NRA t-shirt or hat, or it might be the aforementioned camouflage cap. I also have pro-NRA, TSRA (Texas State Rifle Association) and pro-hunting stickers on my pickup. It doesn't mean I am always armed (most of the time I am), it's just my way of expressing my passion for my hobbies of shooting, hunting, fishing, and other outdoor pursuits.

    No gun related hats or t-shirts and no gun related stickers on my vehicles. Just don't want to advertise that my house, unoccupied a lot when I am traveling, might be a good place to steal guns. I support the 2nd Amendment in other ways.

    I also have seen hats with all different kinds of logos. My favorite one now simply has the U.S. Border Patrol emblem on it. People can draw whatever conclusion they want but it gets lots of stares from the large migrant worker population here. My wife thinks that is like wearing a target but, what the heck, if they can't take a joke, go back home!

    I generally do NOT wear gun related wear..
    Until recently I had NO gun related bumper stickers..
    I got really sick of seeing all the Coexist stickers, when I saw the gun converted one, I just had to have it..
    Do get me wrong, I think all religions SHOULD get along.. However, as much of a nice thought that might be.. I have no illusion that it will EVER happen..

    Wonder if there are any actual occurrences of this happening...or is it another one of those "open carry will get you shot first" old wives tales?

    That being said...I have the following magnets on my tailgate:
