    Now that I have attended a few meeting, get together and gun giveaways. I am wondering if you all would be interested in some sort of name tags. I am thinking ether a simple little pin on or lanyard style. It should be able to be hidden or removed quickly I think for times you don’t want to show how you are. The basic idea I had was some thing like this.



    First name “Handle” Last name

    City or county

    Optional info you want to provide I.E. member, permit holder, or some other status



    I know there are many different options and am open to suggestions. This should be for when we are together at a meeting or dinner and want to be able to know who each other is without the “who are you?” that we do. It would take some research and probably funding to do but I am willing to do the work if you would be interested.



    Please give me your opinion.

    Thanks Chef

    VCDL meetings, yes. OCDO suppers, maybe. I'm not sure I'd want my name displayed to all viewers in a public setting.


    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    I'd use it for the purpose intended. I carry business cards with my name & handle adn some other info for these meetings.

    I was there at the VCDL meeting on the 17th, wearing a maroon Virginia Tech polo and black slacks, my Keltec P11 carried openly in my IWB holster, and "Hi my name is KLE from OCDO" written on a stick-on name-tag on my shirt. I met roscoe13 that way, and we saw BobCav (who doesn't look a thing like his avatar).

    I would definitely be in support of some sort of ID tag, so we can link our faceless names to our nameless faces.

    Let me get this straight. You want me to actually tell people who I am. ARE YOU NUTS!!! Half of these people are just waiting for the opportunity to get me in their sights.:what:

    Not really a bad idea. I could go for just the forum Handle, and let folks provide their name in person. (But only if BabCav is covering my back)

    No Can Do on the handle. LEO229 might be there to check my serial number.

    I was thinking about that recently.

    I like the idea of lanyard-style -- they can be tucked in quickly, or turned over.

    Something like


    @handle
    Real name

    but no gun identifying info, was what I was thinking. Just an @ sign, handle, and maybe just first name.

    I think handle only is the way to go...

    Edit to add: Remember we have had a serious incident happen at a meetup, and for some keeping confidentiallity is a priority.

    There has been a serious incident at a meetup before? Care to elaborate?

    I personally would rather people know me by my online handle until I feel comfortable enough to give my name.

    I just like to keep and retain any privacy I can in this, the age of information and identity theft.

    I think this is where I came in.
