The Brownells company has faithfully served gun owners for decades. Furthermore, the People of the Gun appreciate companies that don’t bend to the whims of social justice warriors. And Brownells has lots of good products as well as a few oddball offerings to accommodate virtually any gun owner, including the “CCW Sash”.
At first I thought this CCW sash just as silly as a concealed carry badge – or turn signal fluid. However, after reading the reviews, I have to reconsider my earlier skepticism. And maybe you should too.
While a CCW badge might get you arrested for impersonating an officer, a CCW sash could help render you safe without risk of arrest. Several reviewers pointed out that the sash serves to announce your armed status to the world even better than open carry.
Take Ed the Hunk from Chicago’s product review, titled, “My only regret is not buying this sooner”:
My hat is off to whoever came up with this sash! Until I found this I was forced to tie a balloon to my belt with the words “CCW Permit Holder – Here to help” written in permanent marker. Trouble is that the balloon would sometimes pop which would force me to get in my defensive stance and draw my primary, backup and flare guns. Most of the time I’d drop at least one of the guns and embarrass myself. Also, those kids from the trailer park would sometimes wait for me in the bushes and throw darts at me to try to pop my balloon. On several occasions I tried explaining to them that it’s not easy to write things evenly on a balloon and that they should show me some respect because I’m one of the good guys. Anyway, ever since I bought this sash I no longer have to worry about the balloon popping problems. Now everyone knows I’m concealed carrying and is that what it’s really all about? P.S. this makes a great holiday gift. The material is a fine quality and the color easily coordinates with most outfits.
Likewise, Gary the Protector from Milwaukee shows that he’s always looking out for his fellow man.
If you are serious about self defense and the Second Amendment then this item is a must, period. I carry all day, every day, waiting for danger to strike at any time. I am a Sheepdog through and through, and since it’s my responsibility to ensure the safety of those around me this sash lets them know that if trouble were to arise that they have nothing to fear with me there. I actually carry two of these, in case one malfunctions or if I have to sash a fellow sheepdog as well. One is none, Two is one. I also carry my official CCW badge, something all professionals must also carry. I sent multiple emails to Brownells to start selling both items together as a pack, as you need both anyway. My only complaint is that the sash is made a little small; I wear a size XXXXL and it’s a little hard to deploy at a moments notice. I’ve sent multiple emails about this as well. That aside, every single Professional CCW badge carrying Sheepdog needs this, buy two immediately.
Meanwhile Stonecold from Oden, Arkansas likes the Brownell’s sash for use with his girlfriend(s).
This is simply the greatest idea since sliced bread. I have two and wear one or the other constantly. What is the use of carrying concealed if no one knows? I wear one in my daily activities outside the home and believe me it gets the girls to focus on my tactical ability. I wear the other around the house, usually nude, so my girlfriend(s) can see that I am carrying a deadly weapon even when my 45 auto is in the gun safe. Thank you for this product. I may buy another one this week.
While Stonecold wants to impress his girl(s), Ivor-Bigun from Nampa, ID cares about his civic responsibility:
I received this item as a Xmas present from our Guardian Angel’s Chapter Leader. Just when I think it could get any better we had a weekend Tacticool Defense Training weekend camp at the local YMCA where we learned the following mind blowing uses: 1. Knife Attack Disarm – Krav Maga technique Ala Steven Seagal. 2. Life saving tourniquet with the help of my bic-pen – Ala Macgyver 3. Emergency Restraint System – ala TJ Hooker All in all I have to say this item is a win win for those who take their civic responsibility seriously. If you want to go to the next level then feel free to add the CCW Helmet we roll with as well!!
At the same time, Reggie from Freedomland suggests improvements, including blinking LED lights for night-time use.
I love my CCW sash. The worst part about carrying a gun concealed is everyone around you not knowing you are armed. The sash is much more visible than a handgun in a holster. This way everyone knows I have a gun and not to mess with me. If someone looks at me funny all I have to do is blade at 45* and they back off every time. I wish they made it in different colors so I could color coordinate with my outfits. Blinking LED lights would also be nice for nighttime wear.
