    I took my first Suarez course many years ago. The things I learned were so awesome and enlightening that they were as powerful, influential and memorable as the first time I got my ass whupped. I learned about the WT truism "you don't know what you don't know".

    The guy with the ad for the "hand badge" is a guy just trying to make a buck. He's trying to make a sale to the one's who "don't know what they don't know".

    I think it's 50/50 that the badge gets screened out by the brain and the focus on the danger of the drawn gun will be what gets seen. We all know of stories where ON DUTY cops get shot because of mistaken identity.

    I never really carried a badge off duty, and if something happened where I had to do bad things to worse people off duty, I wasn't going to ID myself in the process until the end, so this wouldn't have worked for me.

    I don't think a real bad guy will be impressed with his badge, and would bet that the first uniform that he pointed his gun at would be too busy shooting him to the ground to notice it.

    This is a case of overthinking a problem and attributing magical properties to a symbol that will, in the heat of the moment, be ignored by everyone but the Wizard wielding it.
