    Would you show that you're a THR Member (or lurker) by wearing a patch, clothing, or other identifiable insignia?

    Maybe a sticker on the car or bike....or a graphic on a shirt?

    How many do you think you'd see?

    Take care,

    There have been stickers, hats and shirts sold from here before.

    I would, in a heartbeat! :)

    I have a sneaking suspicion I'd see one or two other stickers around here (Augusta, GA) :scrutiny:

    I've worn one of Corriea's 'Molon Labe' hats for years now, both for general work and specifically for range use.. I've had one person notice it and comment.

    I was recently in Applebee's and saw a fella wearing a OFF (Oregon Firearms Federation) sweatshirt. Didn't get a chance to chat though.

    I'd wear one, assuming it was tasteful. I saw some photos of the THR apparel and thought they were nice, but I joined after they were sold.

    Double points if it can be considered a "cover garment". :)

    Not only no but "Hell No"!

    Molon Labe is one thing but having to explain THR is another.

    The only shirts I wear that advertise anything are free shirts that are given to me.

    To be honest, I probably wouldn't.

    But it would be interesting to know how many of the people you run into at a competition, the range, or the gun store were registered on THR. I don't expect it would be very many, maybe 2 or 3 percent?

    No, I don't advertise to anyone that I own firearms. No patches, no stickers on my vehicles and no hats that are firearm related.

    I would probably use a decal like the NRA decal on my pickup. I do not adveritize that I own guns other then the NRA decal which is next to my "Support Your Local Sheriff" decal. Especially that I might be carrying concealed.

    The only time I have on any apparel that might indicate that I own firearms is when I'm hunting. I wear a Browning bright hunter orange ball cap.

    I would. I've never understood the whole concept of hiding that you are part of the gun community. It is my opinion, the more folks see gun related stuff, the less folks will fear it. Just my opinion, and everyine is entitled to one......

    I would put a sticker on my guitar case.

    There's advertising and then there's advertising. Slogans like "The High Road" and "Molon Labe" are much less likely to be known by outsiders.

    No, the only logo I wear is on my work uniform. I do not wear T shirts with any color but white and it will not have any figure or lettering but the manufacturers label and no pockets on tee shirts. I do wear ball caps with logos if I am a user of the product and I approve of the company that owns the logo. No politics and no stickers on bumpers or anywhere else. Just my own personal ideosyncrasy, and anyone is welcome to it!!!!!!!!!!!

    No need for explanations beyond "I choose to take the high road."

    Anyone who's a member here or recognizes the emblem as a link to here will surely not need it explained.

    That's what I was wondering.

    I bet the number would be low since there are so many variables: how many have THR-logo stuff, how many are wearing it / displaying it on any given day, and what's the likelihood of running into someone just out and about?

    I think we don't see a lot of NRA or (firearms) manufacturers logos in the general public since they're so identifiable.

    THR, on the other hand, would most likely be known by members and lurkers only.

    Take care,

    A logo like ar15.com's BFL? If THR had a local forum for people to post in I'm sure it'd be better as members would be interacting far more than they are now. But since a lot of people think one of the major criticisms of ARFcom is that there are too many forums I doubt THR would expand to have state by state Hometown Forums.

    I'm not a logo guy I have an NRA decal on my car(that initself is big doins for me) and a Jesus Fish and that's about as much advertising as I do. That, and my NRA hat that I think I've worn twice. I'm just not into putting my business out there for the world to see I generally wear a Cabella's hat but people don't associate them w/ firearms

    No NRA or gun related stickers on my truck for me.

    The Crack-heads will break in a vehicle just to steal the car wash quarters out of the ash tray.

    No sense at all advertising you have guns to steal too!

    I would have something like Molon Labe, or the AR15.com BFL-- something most would not recognize.

    As I figure it, if you don't know what it means, I am not talking to you. :)

    rcmodel...I put a NRA sticker (decal) on my wife's '78 Corvette rear window next to the passenger door. I watched two people approach the car and start to try the door and stop in their tracks when they say the decal, look around and leave...So maybe a NRA decal has a detering effect on car thieves...

    I have Molon Labe on the back of my VW, and my son's speech therapist asked me what it meant. I told her it was a gun thing.

    Maybe a t-shirt or cap, but definitely not a vehicle sticker. Advertising that you're a hunter or shooter makes your vehicle a target of small-time crooks, crackheads, and teenagers, whom will hope to find guns inside.
