    "We don't need no stinking badges!!!" Sorry, couldn't resist.
    Anyway, I was looking around on GB auction site, and Came across a "Texas Concealed Handgun" badge.
    I am curious if anyone on here carries one? Also, is it just a novelty? Any LEO out there with input on them?

    Novelty.
    Not worth the electroplating it carries.

    They're a joke, you see them sometimes for sale at gun shows; but no self-respecting CHL holder would carry one.

    If anything, depending on circumstances flashing one could be construed as impersonating a public servant, a third degree felony under section ยง37.11 of the state Penal Code.

    Yep. That about sums up that silly question! I can see where it can be misconstrued as impersonating a law officer. Just had news, and a worse idea. Thanks for the confirmation!

    I wear mine on a chain around my neck. Get me lots of free meals and coffee.
