    I'm looking for opinions.
    Would this shirt be funny to wear while carrying or a bad idea?

    Although the bubbas would probably like it a lot, I would say, mostly, almost entirely it is a bad idea. It would generally be uncivil, especially if one is carrying a gun.

    The joke would be most funny in a situation where there is no possibility of a gun being present (which ain't too many places, nowadays) or with someone whoseems incapable of actually having a gun (like a 98 year old grandmother or a 1 year old toddler).

    Free country, though. 1A and all that...I would defend to the death one's right to wear it.

    Kinda tasteless, and definitely not while carrying, wouldn't look good in a crowd of fear mongers, or a traffic stop of any substance concerning the suspicion of a recently committed crime in a specific locale..

    I might wear a shirt like that to an informal shooting range setting, or maybe I'd wear it in a CC only state where I had a point to make. Other than that, I don't think I could personally see a reason to wear that shirt.
    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    Reminds me ofthe old bumper sticker "So Many Pedestrians, So Little Time". Not smart to have on your car as it was anti social and tasteless. Further, if one ever hit a pedestrian it would not look too good in court. Even if one wasn't charged for a traffic event, the victim could sue in civil court and a jury would not view that sort of thing favorably.

    I would never wear that shirt.

    I generally like tasteless t-shirts, but that one just isn't terribly funny. Legba gives it a thumbs down.

    Thumbs down for several reasons:

    Black T-Shirts are for thugs

    Picture of Glock on it instead of a real gun

    Bad Font on the writing makesw it hard to read

    T-Shirts make my belly stick out even more

    Someone will probably take is seriously

    If a LEO stops you for any reason he may not have a sense of humor

    Oveall BAD taste :what:

    It must be cold in hell, cause I actually agree with a post from HankT. :shock:

    I would never wear one myself, but I would defend one's right to do so if they chose.

    i think that the whole point of conceal carry is to conceal right? or did i miss a memo?



    people will try to sell anything.

    Only way to make that one work is if you are wearing a Zap Brannigan length kilt with the back accidentally tucked into your panty hose.



    Soldier: “Why is this godforsaken planet worth dying for?”
    Brannigan: “Don’t ask me, you’re the one who is going to be dying.”

    Funny, but only for a private setting. Wearing such a t-shirt while OCing is bad taste, and potentially considered threatening (words + immediate ability to carry out words). Bad press for OCers.

    I wouldn't want to have it on when I had to smoke a bad guy. It wouldn't look to good for me in court. It would look like I was wanting to shoot someone. However, I think it's funny as hell and I would have worn it when I was younger.

    I have to agree wth the others. Might be funny at a back yard cookout with friends, but no way I'd wear it out in public.

    It's amusing, but a bit over the top to wear while OCing.

    and the selling point if you read the descriptionis to say essentially:

    "hey ya'll I'm conceal carrying!"

    people really confuse me.

    Yea, presents the wrong image. Not something I would wear while OCing.
    The 1911 pistol remains the service pistol of choice in the eyes of those who understand the problem. Back when we audited the FBI academy in 1947, I was told that I ought not to use my pistol in their training program because it was not fair. Maybe the first thing one should demand of his sidearm is that it be unfair. Col. Jeff Cooper, GUNS & AMMO, January 2002

    pfffft! ...girls. Somebody pony up 25 bucks, and I'll rock the thing proudly. :P

    I'm far to cheap to pay for it. Besides, the $25 would cover my co-pay after a cop curb stomps my assfor wearing it.
