Friday Fundamentals – Scam artists in the firearms community (part 3)

A long, long time ago, a sagacious and scholarly fellow who understood the application of violence by virtue of various tools wrote a series of articles called Friday Fundamentals. It was a great series, but alas this Perspicacious Professor stopped writing them after a while. We’re reprinting them here, with permission, and to be honest we’re hoping to woo him into picking the series back up. Here on our site, of course. Read on, if you wish to learn. Stop here if you’re a hippie, sissy, anyone who thinks capri length skinny jeans are manly, or someone who needs a safe space. You’re reading the wrong online magazine. Mad Duo

Scam artists in the firearms community

As seen on Tactical Professor.

Please don’t do this. There are a lot of newcomers to the world of weapons carry and there are no shortage of hucksters who are doing their best to take advantage of the newbies.

Tactical Professor- Dont' Use this CCW Sticker

I’m not going to dignify the ad by posting the link. It’s for a $25 holster that has no value whatsoever, despite being advertised as a $99 value. If you see this foolishness, you know that ad in particular and the company in general are just scams. Don’t patronize them.

Support Breach-Bang-Clear. Click on the ad below and visit a sponsor. Help us pay our execrable minions the paltry sum they so obviously don’t deserve.

    I always think of the “concealed carry badges” I see in the back of some gun magazines. They give me the creeps! I always associate these with child molesters. I can’t imagine what LEO’s must think when they find someone wearing or carrying a badge during a stop.

    So, you are talking about the picture of the holster on the steering column…right?

    What about the picture of the bumpersticker that “warns” the police officer that you might have a weapon with you in the car? Do you consider that as another example of a scam product, or do you think it is a good idea? I’m not being a smart ass about the sticker, it is a serious question because I can see it working both ways.

      It’s a good idea if you love having your car broken in to because you choose to advertise to God and everyone that there could be a gun in there…. A little common sense goes a lot farther than some sticker on your bumper.

      When I walk up to someone’s car, I’m paying more attention to the people and their hands than I am to what is stuck to their bumper. People and their body language / movements take priority because I really don’t have to worry about being attacked by a sticker. If someone tells me they have a gun in the car, fine – I appreciate them trying to let me know they have good intentions; however, I don’t expect them to volunteer that information.
