    I would bet I get pulled over more by 'freeway' LEO's just to check I was good and legit, not 1 drink, and every tail-light good, and all the items on my DL and POI checked 3-5 times, makes for long trips. :58:
    Your plates tell the cops U may be a carrying or at least the owner has a CCW permit, something all non-LEO's can't run! :58:
    I see that decal as trouble, the whole concept of CONCEALED is not to advertise you are carrying, this [IMHO] blows that right to bits when U get in your wheels, & may lead to you losing your CCW-permit or even your piece (car too!). :icon_question:
    If I were an armed BG and wanted to rumble with owner of that car (say road rage) I would prolly shoot 1st and not take chance I could just settle things with less agro.
    I can think of a decal about as much trouble: "Proud owner of a $5K ROLEX watch I wear it ALL the time!" :58:

    I can't agree more. The best idea is to fly under the Bad Guys RADAR so to speak. Do not stand out. Do not advertise. Always be sensible. You can't always be with your stuff. You gotta work sometime to eak out a living. Get an alarm and a dog. Bad guys hate both.

    I don't do anything to advertise because the only thing that sucks worse than getting shot is getting shot with your own gun.

    I tend to agree with the being incognito as far as my gun carry. I don't want to call attention to myself and I like the element of surprise to be on my side.

    Yep, it's concealed carry for a reason. I personally don't want the BGs to know who is carrying and who is not. Makes us all safer.

    Remember, those law abiding who carry are making all safer, and doing a serivce to society.

If I am pulled over, I will wait for the officer to ask for ID and then he/she will know that I am armed..thats just me
    In Ohio they know once they run your plate in computer. So when I inform them upon their coming to my window i'm just fufilling the letter of the law.

    Attention BG's...their might be a gun in the car.

    I could also see someone being spiteful with you and seeing that sticker they could call the police and lie saying " I think I saw them with a gun." It's a long shot, but there are peace loving sheep that would love to force us to give up are guns and be thrown in jail because we are just one step above the criminals." NO ONE SHOULD BE ARMED...except the police...and even then not all of them....just the one I call toe come to my house."
    Kinda like the PETA memebers that will tar and feather your suv.

    I'm probably way out in left field on this one...or is it right field....i'm confused.

    None of the vehicles I drive are registered in my name.
    I carry a gun because I can't carry a cop!

    Like I said in the other thread; No stickers, no badges, noting on my home or vehicle to tell the BG that I'm armed. I'm going to let them find out the hard way!

    In some states, such as Arkansas, your CHL is tacked onto your drivers license and not your car tags. I can see if it were by car tags, and my wife, who is NOT licensed, gets pulled over, the cop goes on alert if he ran the tag and it came back to possible gun in car..things "could" be tense..where by drivers license, no reason to be alert to gun in car, he runs her info, no permit pops up, everyone is calm, for the gist is, some states tag your permit to your drivers license, not your car tags.

    Washington State is one of those States. There in no picture on the Washington CWP. However, your drivers license number is indicated on the CWP, and the two must be carried together.

    I agree with what has been said. I don't advertise nothin'--no stickers ,badges,tatoos. Not even an NRA sticker.
    One other thing too--if you have the decal and some BG wants your car--he will just walk up and shoot you because you've indicated that you're armed.

    I am really very interested in hearing the detailed reasons behind all of your opinions on this, would any of you share?
    Probably because it eliminates the very tactical advantage that you gain from having a concealed weapon in the first place. Some LEOs may also find it annoying. If you go somewhere where uninformed officials might think people should not have guns in their cars, you'll probably end up being singled out.

    Sun Tzu says...if you are strong, appear weak. If you are weak, appear strong. My car has car alarm stickers (these are from a real installation on someone else's car) because I do not have a car alarm. My house has ADT stickers because I do not have ADT. If I had any of these things, I would not have stickers advertising it.

    Thus, it stands to reason that if one has a firearm, one would want to be as low-profile as possible about it.
