    Stupid and hilarious Concealed Carry Badge video

    So apparently, according to this video, if you have one of these, it gives you the right to aim the muzzle of your gun at a police officer and get away with it.

    We had that happen once at a range... remember when you're out shooting with newbies to make sure that they keep pointed down range....

    A year or so ago, when I was at a range, there was some guy outside twirling his .357's around like he was Dirty Harry.

    I don't recall Clint Eastwoods character twirling anything around... besides, he carried a S&W .44 mag. Hardly a twirl gun. So what's that got to do with some gomer pointing a gun at a cop in a sales pitch for phoney CCW badges?

    From Sportsmans Guide a while ago (Im on their emailer list).. I seen a sale on a "CCW Wallet" that came with a badge inside.. At first, the feeling is. Hey, thats kinda official looking.. Kinda cool.

    Then you realize.. Wait.. That may not be the greatest idea.. "Impersonating a police officer" comes to mind.. Even if you aren't or don't intend too, just having a silly badge might be enough for them to pick on you even further..

    Then I see these silly videos. /facepalm indeed.

    I saw the same thing in my last issue of the SG catalog. It's a wanna-be gimmick. They sell 'em on e-Bay too. My AzCWP is behind my drivers license in my wallet. 'Only time I show it is when I buy another gun.

    I wonder why?
    Aside from the fact that it's a commercial?

    Here's how it would actually go down:

    Victim: "Honey, call 911. Tell them I am armed and am detaining the suspect of an attempted knife attack. Describe what I look like."

    LEO to Victim: "Put your weapon down and step back towards my voice." (Victin complies)

    LEO's partner to knife attacker: "Lay down on the ground, hands on top of your head."

    After both are cuffed, they'll sort things out then. Whatever you do, never take your firearm off the perp except to lay it on the ground under the direction of the law enforcement officer. If he's super cool, he may tell you to holster it, but don't count on it - even if you're his next-door neighbor.

    What I want to know is at WHAT point would this badge thingie work? Was there another half to the commercial (that they couldn't afford to include) that the assault victim whips it out at the attacker for when the police arrive? Or while he was swinging his gun toward the officer, he also reaches for his pocket for a "badge"? Oh, yeah. Because that makes it so much less likely you'll get shot.

    What I WOULD buy is a flip ID/Permit wallet so you could show your DL and CHP easily. I'd keep my Insurance card in there as well!

    I like how he holds the 1911 finger-on-trigger, thumb-under-safety, safety-up and takes his eyes off the attacker.
