what is a C.P.L? Is it a concealed carry license?

I think it is someone trying to feel special about owning a gun and having a permit...People who buy these items are the people that open carry to show off their shiny gun in public and purposely leave the gun in view of cops so they can pull it out and feel privileged. I think they are gay and childish. But nothing against you of course. Just answering the question.

ccw badge

In this swamp the LEO look unkindly on anyone that wears a badge and it is not a valid government agency issue. The ccw badge is fine in your wallet and out of sight. Pin it to your vest and impersonating an officer charge is very likely. The law does not prevent you from wearing a ccw badge or a star Trek badge for that matter, but common sense does.

It sucks to face the action end of a barrel and be out of bullets.

A nice shiny badge would make a nice target

It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.- Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)

and I spend almost all of my time out of the house interacting with LEO's in some shape of form.

I see it as being pretty much the same as walking around with a first responder hat on and your not one.

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!

I think

the purpose of those shiny badges is:if you do shoot someone,when the cop arrives,you are standing there waving your shiny badge,so the cop does not shoot your ass,i don't know if that shiny badge is going to help you or not,but i do know that once you shoot,you better be prepared to have a police officer draw down on you when he shows up,and you better NOT be holding a gun in your hand.

Big hat, no cattle. I sure hope if you have a carry license that you humble yourself and pray each day you don't have to use it. (Don't get me wrong; I carry, I know how to shoot and I have shot before. I just hope I don't ever have to again). Hope everyone is careful and safe.

All hat, no cattle

Is the way I always heard it.
I reckon it gets the point across either way.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

Hey Vaquero my friend

I am sure you are correct. Although born in Texas, I was raised in another state. Only been back the last 15+. But you are correct about getting the point across. Thanks for letting me know the correct expression.
