    That's about the same time it became taboo to breastfeed in public. I realy don't see OC or public breastfeeding to be that weird.

    Why even ask? Nobody's been able to provide an example yet. People are still going to believe the theory anyway, though.

    Is there a badge for that?
    Anyone who says, "I support the 2nd amendment, BUT"... doesn't. Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman.

    NavyLT, We don't need no stinkin badges!!!

  5. Id say yes to open carry is just a deterrent, kinda like a warning. If a criminal happens to see your weapon then he knows you have it and is more likely to proceed in two ways: #1. Leave you alone. #2. attack in a stealthy mode as to get the jump on you. I live in the Detroit area and to have a gun here is like wearing a gold neckless unfortunately. (if is worn in a way it can be seen) Here instead of being afraid they will be more likely to try and rob you for your pistol. Concealed weapons are a better way to have the upper tactical advantage (just my thoughts) not to mention it takes you out of the lime light and makes you an everyday person. People that have a pistol hanging out become a stand out of the crowd issue. Not to mention some people are afraid of guns. I personally don't want to scare anyone but I do like the idea of being able to protect my self if need be.

    Lightbulb Breastfeeding Badge?

    OK, Let's examine this whole breastfeeding badge concept.

    Is the woman in question supposed to?

    A- Keep the badge pinned on her shirt, meaning that in will invariably be taken off to breastfeed. Thus defeating the purpose.
    B- Use one of those Belt-clip CCW Badge holder thingies and wear the breastfeeding badge in a location where the baby could inadvertantly conceal the badge.
    C- Use one of those neck-chain CCW Badge holder thingies and wear the badge hanging around her neck. I see this option as problematic because the baby could get caught in the neck chain and you might end up throwing out the baby with the badge holder.
    D- Use a version of the CCW sash that was described on another thread. This option would unfortunately cover up one breast, thus reducing the options for the mother and baby. This is especially problematic for the mothers of twins (or other multiple births), polygamists, or women with the last name Duggar as it removes the option of breast feeding two babies at the same time.
    E- Not worry about a stinkin badge, and thus potentially run afoul with the tactical breastfeeding cops, AKA sheepdogs.

    This is such a tuff delemma.

    She has to wear it on her "holsters" so that, when she brandishes, the badge is still visible.

  9. I was grocery shopping with my wife once, and always try to keep a high level of awareness of my surroundings. In the vegetable area, where there are sundry small islands of produce, and many paths to anywhere else, I noticed someone bug-eyewing my piece. I took a few steps to make it less visible. So did he, to a better vantage point. After 2-3 of these chess moves, he had approached as near as I wanted him to get. I turned weak side to and said, what are you doing?
    He said he was interested in my Glock, and wanted to know what barrel was on it. (I had a stainless bbl with a 2 port comp on it)
    I told him it'd be better if he announced his interest, rather than make me go condition orange to find out.
    He apologized for the intrusion. I carried the conversation by telling him about how the Glock was modded. As we parted he agreed it'd be best not to "stalk" an OCer.

    He's nervous cause he's not well-trained enough to approach and greet and find out the demeanor of the OCer. If he did that, he'd soon welcome those who could come to his aid. Sheeple- proof that Darwin was WRONG

    Anyways, that's the first time I did that and this was a confession. Idk if I got any weird looks.
    Thats not wierd at all ... You never know when a cantalope may go ballistic on you! Why do you think all the Youtube "gun reviews" shoot at melons? Think about it!
    We ALL shall see the Lord one day .... please don't make me set up the meeting.
