    I generally carry 2 spare magazines, a Surefire flashlight, and Blackberry in appropriate holsters on my belt. Sometimes I have a pouch on the belt for the hands free Bluetooth earpiece for the cell phone. Wife says I look like batman or something. Even when open carrying, I keep this stuff concealed. Wearing all that openly just calls more attention that I'd prefer to avoid.

    Why don't you get a "Concealed-Carry" Badge to go with that cute outfit? If you're not a cop, why do you want to look like one?

    I like a silver spoon, at least two chilled miniature seedless water melons, a half quart of Spumoni ice cream, and a batch of hot meat sauce - but that's just me.

    Oh, and traditional Lays - a potato chip

    Johnny, the general public will slowly back away from you - as if your pants were full of @#$%.

    But, Johnny, you sound stupid. Didn't your mother tell you, don't be a cop, and don't come to town? Are you required to be stupid?

    Trying hard, to not sound stupid, but the more I listen, I sound like me ..

    Stupid, yes, stupid, I insult people I don't know, yes, stupid, it's just stupid ... but that's what I do. And that's me ... stupid, that's me



    And then the Orca grabbed the Great White by the throat - and drowned him.

    Killer whale love, killer whale love ...bite your throat and turn you upside down ... killer whale love, I will eat you

    Or is your entire family stupid?

    I saw that film of the Orca killing the Great White ......

    Way too harsh, for sure. Sorry, Johnny .

    My best wishes for your Thanksgiving holiday - I need to reduce my alcohol intake and be more sensitive to others.

    LOL!

    On my Dixieline pistol/utility belt, I have my keys/Fox40 whistle/Micra on a Lucky Secure-A-Key, knockoff multi-tool, cellphone, nitrile glove pouch, and a Nite Ize pouch holding ID wallet, notepad, space pen, cuffs well-concealed, watch, allergy pill, Streamlight TL-2, and Buck 889 SBMF.

    If it were harassment-free and legal to LOC in 99% of CA, I'd have a hell of a time carrying all that, plus my USP45 and double mag pouch.

    I don't know if this term is used similarly elsewhere but in ham radio we would call you a whacker if you dress yourself up and/or your car to look like it is public safety/law enforcement and boast about it.

    I am not trying to call you a whacker but there are some people (I see this a lot in the radio world) that like to buy Crown-Vics and similar vehicles, dress them up with antennas and radios and drive like maniacs. Some people do this because these vehicles make practical radio platforms as there are accessories out the ying-yang for them but some people are a little too boastful and do nothing for public safety, so they tend to be called whackers.

    Buying 5.11 BDU's, tactical boots, duty belts, and accessories, especially a gun, to wear will definitely get you called either a possible rent-a-cop or a whacker if a badge is not visible.

    Walking around in public looking like that can get you in trouble if trouble does start and people think you are a cop.

    Handcuffs? Get an extra large zip tie. Works great, doesn't attract attention and is a lot lighter. Mace? sure, but bear spray is better. Duty Belt, flashlight??? not needed. What about extra ammo mags or speed loaders? Can never carry too much ammo.

    If I am Open Carrying I have my gun in holster on the right, my double spare mag holder on the left. I have a Mini Maglite just behind the spare mags, and a horizontal folding knife sheath in front of the gun. My cell phone is in my shirt pocket.

    If I am not carrying, I have my Mini MagLite on the right side, cell phone case in front of that, and knife sheath in front of that.

    Presume you mean ASP baton, rather than ASB which is a rather unsatisfactory material for a baton.

    What is your take on the legality of non-LEO carrying a concealed baton? Such does not appear to be covered under the listed exceptions of Title 25, Chapter 25 (25 M.R.S.A. 2001A) of Maine statutes.

    I ought to get as an attachment for my handgun a doublesided red button. One side will read "Easy" and the other side will read "Liberal." When you press the liberal button while in say a Wild Oats grocery store filled with gun haters who are unhappy with your OCing, you will hear an electronic voice, "Warning, liberal in close proximity." The other button is reserved for when you have to deal with a mugger, robber, axe murderer, burgular, gangbanger, or other assailant in a lethal manner. Here is an example:

    Robber: "Give me everything you have on you...wallet, keys, phone."

    Gun-toter: BANG!

    [presses "Easy" button]

    Electronic voice from gun: "THAT WAS EASY!"

    yeah i meant ASP haha having a big typo day today. and my baton is my non-leathal method of self defense. used in situations where self defense is warranted by lethal force is not. It was actually given to me by an LEO when i was 18. Never have come across a LEO that has a problem with it. guess they figure a BG with a broken wrist is better than a BG with a large crator in his forhead.

    This and it is felony if they charge you with impersonating a cop. As for the law for ohio
    It can get you into a mess of problems even if your not intending too. It is the same for many other states. If you do use the belt do not be surprised if you get hassled for it.

    http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/2921.51
    (E) No person shall commit a felony while impersonating a peace officer, a private police officer, a federal law enforcement officer, an officer, agent, or employee of the state, or investigator of the bureau of criminal identification and investigation.
    (F) It is an affirmative defense to a charge under division (B) of this section that the impersonation of the peace officer, private police officer, or investigator of the bureau of criminal identification and investigation was for a lawful purpose.
    (G) Whoever violates division (B) of this section is guilty of a misdemeanor of the fourth degree. Whoever violates division (C) or (D) of this section is guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree. If the purpose of a violation of division (D) of this section is to commit or facilitate the commission of a felony, a violation of division (D) is a felony of the fourth degree. Whoever violates division (E) of this section is guilty of a felony of the third degree.

    -I come in peace, I didn't bring artillery. But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes: If you screw with me, I'll kill you all.
    -Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    Given to you when you were USMC - nice.

    Still the question of whether baton is legal in Maine. Can you provide answer/cite?
