    Yep. If I'm not working, I'm barefoot or in sandals. Preferable barefoot.

    You don't wear those weird toe shoes do ya? If so, do they make a tactical version? I see them as being being handy for gripping limbs and such...

    Thanks. But I forgot ruckus. Just need to be careful when combining fracus and ruckus.

    Now THAT is funny....REALLY funny....:rotflmao:

    Well, seeing as how we have no history of threads anymore since they've been zapped numerous times, guess nobodies charity will benefit.

    Ain't that the truth. A lot of pertinent information lost.

    I'm not a big believer in the "Shoot Me First" attire concept. I believe it's just theory as well. But, I still think the Magnum PI shirts and the Photographer/511 vests are just too gay.

    I have no clue who did this PhotoChop but ...

    When I was an LEO, it was common to refer to the colour of our uniforms as 'Pick Me' blue. Reason was that whenever the crap hit the fan, everything was directed at the guy/gal in the blue shirt. It was even referred to in training when discussing responding to armed threats, fights etc as the BG would regard you as more of a threat than some panick stricken civilian.....

    I don't wear shirts with "stuff" on it unless it's free or funny as hell to get me to buy one. I don't really care for all the advertising so I'll pass on a lot of the shirts and hats BUT I the heat of commiting a crime do you really think the low lifes are able to read and recognize much more than it's a red shirt, black shirt or such. Now if it has a badge on the chest YES they will likely see that but after that ... if they do they are professionals and you better sit still, shut up and don't do anything stupid.

    The one thing I think could really say "shoot me first" is OPEN CARRY ...

    Nope. While modern weapons are very safe, I still don't like the idea of a Roscoe pointed at my Jimmy.

    :uhm: Why would that be an issue for ya? Jimmy would have to be tall enough to tangle with Roscoe, or that's a non-issue... right? :guns: (J/K)

    Your offer is well-intentioned but frivolous, since you are obviously aware that the boards where we had those discussions no longer exist...

    I'm with BPS on this. When I ran through the woods barefoot, we shot squirrels by aiming at their eyeballs. Now, I wear shoes and I can't even see a squirrel. Shoes have ruined my eyesight!!

    Barefoot, hmmmm , one little thorn is all it takes, no thanks, barefoot is how My sister ended up in a hospital after stepping on a buried in the sand broken bottle, 20 or more stitches, again, no thanks.

    Heck, I grew up in the city; my tender little tootsies get sore just going to the mailbox barefoot...

    Smells like a Grateful Dead concert around here lately.:silly::roll2:

    Hey, I went to a Grateful Dead concert back in 74, they did a fantastic rendition of "Sugar Magnolia" .......................I'm still a fan (been one since the 60s) and often listen to their music. Listen to American Beauty and Workingman's Dead albums..............................BTW, about the only two of their many albums that had any mainstream commercial success. You just gotta learn to appreciate their music.

    I empathize with your Sis, I stepped on a potato rake partially burried in the ground and covered by leaves.
    I did have snake boots, but, a tine went through the sole and a inch or more into my foot.
    I fell down in the process and there I was on the forest floor with one foot nailed to the ground.

    What I find a little ironic about this thread is that a few of the folks that scoff at the thought of a "shoot me first" garment calling it urban legend are also the same ones that advocate carrying several weapons and large amounts of ammunition while running down to the corner store to get a loaf of bread. Their reasoning for all the armament is a "just in case" scenario, better safe than sorry, but yet the concept of dressing in a manner of not attracting attention "just in case" is dismissed.

    Good point, sir. On those lines, I usually try to keep my clothing in mind in case I have to call in during or after a defensive encounter. I tend to dress in solid colors, nothing that stands out to draw attention yet easily describable. I would feel much more comfortable telling a 911 dispatcher that I'm the one wearing a tan T-shirt and black jeans rather than a camo jacket and a "Kill 'em all, let God sort 'em out" T-shirt.

    But then that's just me.

    Chief, I like their music. I just find Deadheads amusing.

    You forgot "In the Dark" which included their biggest commercial hit "Touch of Gray"

    True, true... how many a thread has gone awry for much simpler reasons? We shudder to think on it. But do we see such warnings in the Forum Rules? We do not. For the want of a nail...

    I was going to start a similar thread. Not asking what it is, but if it had ever resulted in a shooting,fracus, brewhaha, melee, a tangle, throwdown, fisticuffs, etc.

    Because I don't think it has. For the average Joe.

    Good list of fight calls, cp!

    I've worn "shoot me" shirts for ages and the only thing that has ever resulted was that old drunk guy last year. I have however experienced a few angry bar patrons due to my pool shooting. But I used to shoot a pretty mean stick back in the day, which would 'splain it.

    Fun post, thanks. Thinking about the "kill 'em all" quote, wasn't that originally some bishop or whomever during the Crusades who said that first?

    But yeah, if you're "in the biz" and can get a call, makes sense to normally dress neutral.

    I've heard that song, Jerry Garcia doing vocals? I can go online and hit play on te computer and one site will play hours of free GD songs/videos.

    Hey, another good album is ACE, by Bob Weir.

    Good news! They make something so you CAN just wear your boxers and still carry the Glock. It's called a belly band. :cool:

    But then you have to wear the belly band...

    New proof of my "shoot me first" shirt and cap attire -- assuming you've got issues with either James Joyce or the Houston Texans. Girlfriend and yours truly (now @ 171 lbs w. diet Coke) but still enjoying an early warm spring evening:
