    The firefighters badge is only worn on the dress uniform. We don't need no stinkin' badges to be america's heroes.

    Yes, I too see people wearing the instructor shirts at local ranges. And I know they aren't instructors. I think the only time it's appropriate to wear the patch is while actually instructing. I for sure don't think anyone should be wearing a badge unless they are a LEO or other recognized public official.

Its what all bad asses wear, I don't know why but a sheriff's deputy told me it was the correct uniform.

    Great, Thanks... Now you made ME spill coffee down the front of myself also... :-)

    Agreed. I wear my NRA Instructor (or Training Counselor) anytime I'm doing any type of training (formal or informal). If I'm shooting by myself or with a group of other instructors/Training Counselors, I will either remove the patch (got Velcro on my instructor shirts) or simply wear different clothing.

    In Oregon, more and more departments, fire and paramedic, volunteer and paid, are moving to full uniform with a badge and name tag (we like to blame the east coast for this ridiculous movement)....I personally like the emt pants with a t shirt, I don't need no stinking badge either

    This is why I value this forum. I am a Cubmaster for my sons' local Cub Scouts Pack and the velcro option for the multiple roles and patches is convenient, but I *never* thought about that for my instructor shirts/weather gear. Being able to rip off the patches after a training session, or affix the patch once I leave a local range en-route to a class I am giving is an excellent idea! Thanks!

    I guess I'll have to e-bay/craigslist my CCW badge collection to pay for a few feet of velcro...

    Just as long as you don't sell your CCW Instructor's Badge.

    Wal-Mart sells Velcro in a variety of colors at a reasonable price. If you have access to a military clothing sales store, prices are a lot less.

    This guy would hang out in the corner store, shooting the b.s. w/ local coffee drinkers. Don't recall mirrored shades, but he wore those SWAT style cargo pants & paramilitary boots. I guess his hobby was law & order, patch collecting and scanner listening. He moved away long ago, never to be seen in these parts again...
