    The "Secret" Handshake.

    We need a secret handshake. The Mason's and Shriners got them. Some other elements of society too. A secret shake could be used to ferret out the legitimate Carriers, and a social break the ice thing too. Maybe we can teach it to the cops, so instead of dancing us, they can "shake", and go on, satisfied that they have had the priviledge of meeting a supporter, and fellow law abiding citizen. I leave it up to all of you what type of shake we arrive at.

    I already have a secret handshake, but I can't tell you what it is. It's a secret.

    Jumping hi-five, spin, and a moonwalk! Make sure you have a good retention holster!

    i suppose we should make it a left handed maneuver. We like each other, but not that damn much. Keeps the gun hand free. now to teach it to the cops.

    the whole idea of the handshake was to show that there was no weapon in the right hand (strong hand). An empty hand was thrust forward...

    If you give someone your left hand in America, they'll wonder what you are planning. Left handed was also called sinister since when two armies met each other to discuss a truce, one officer would stab the other with his left hand as they shook with the right.

    well,,,

    i like this idea!

    strong hand shake,, participants approach then place their weak hand
    gently toward their fire arm,
    reach out and grasp the fore arm of the BAD guy.
    yea, that could work!

    Unfortunately, that's not why left handed is called sinister. Left handed is called sinister, because in Latin sinistera means left handed, just like dextram means right handed.

    HaHAHA! love it! I taught my little brother whenever someone offers you their fist for the "dap" you are are supposed to punch it as hard as you can. Funny, especially as he's now 26 and still does it!

    +1000 Boy Scouts is where I learned my things. And I hope to learn much more in participation as an adult.

    I second the tap, rack, and shake. Just don't have your gun in your hand when you do it!

    Remember, touching an officer in ANY way results in an 'assaulting an officer' charge, which is a felony. As far as the trust issue goes, if cops don't trust law abiding armed citizens, too bad. That is their problem, and it is not on us to pander to their insecurities/issues. Cops are not your friend, your counselor or your priest. Do not speak to them and whatever you do, DO NOT TOUCH A COP.

    +1 on the Boy Scouts, though. I am an Eagle Scout, class of '92. Scouts made me the skilled camper and adventurous person I am. Scouts also introduced me to firearms.

    I forgot to add the Eagle Scout part of mine too. I forgot about the whole assault thing...Some cops are ok with it though. But do you risk it? Individual preference I guess.
