There are badges out there for sale that say things like: Armed Citizen Concealed Handgun Permit Etc. I have never bought one because I thought it seemed like someone would look like they were impersonating an officer or just seemed like overkill with an actual license in hand. Not strong opinions. It just wasn't for me. Recently I learned that one of my coworkers had such a badge. He told me that he carries it so if he is ever forced into using his gun he can hold it up in the air because police coming on the scene don't shoot people with badges held in the air. secondly, so the public who cant read his badge at distance won't confuse him for a bad guy. Any thoughts? His argument seems to make sense.
