Fake guns to deter crime...?

I honestly don't know if this is a joke or someone trying to make a buck off of morons. I have a feeling it's fake, but you never know these days.

Perceived Carry Decoys

Quote:What are Perceived Carry Decoys? We're glad you asked! Perceived Carry Decoys is a veteran owned entity that offers the worlds first and only way to exercise your 2nd amendment right, without the stigma or concerns associated with owning a gun.

PCD understands that not everyone is comfortable with owning an actual firearm. But why should those feelings affect your personal safety?
Now they no longer have to. With the launch of Perceived Carry Decoys, you may now give off the appearance that you are toting serious heat, while in actuality you have nothing more than a one piece device attached to your hip that is as harmless as a cell phone.

You no longer have to worry about young children finding a loaded weapon. This all-in-one piece construction does not come apart. At a fraction of the price of a real firearm, you too may enjoy the benefits of carrying a weapon, without having to shell out hundreds(sometimes $1000's) of dollars for something that statistics show probably will not and/or should not be used.

A PCD device is meant to be a means of crime deterrent, rather than a means of self defense. After all, who's going to run up on a person with a gun?

While these are not actual firearms, their extreme resemblance to real guns tucked neatly in a holster may be enough to give you the jump on anyone who may wish to do you or your family harm.

The whole purpose of open carry is to give off the "don't mess with me" persona. The whole purpose of Perceived Carry Decoys is to give off the appearance that you too are ready for anyone, anywhere.

No waiting for background checks, no fees for classes, permits, or ammunition, protect yours today!

Disclaimer: Perceived Carry Devices are not intended to be used in emergencies. If you find yourself in a life threatening situation, first seek safety, then dial 911 as you should when carrying a real firearm.

PERCEPTION IS REALITY!!

I'm sure they'll prevent just as many crimes as fake surveillance cameras do.

Well if simply the act of open carrying deters crime (as is the claim by some who cite it as a major point for doing it) then why wouldn't it?

Trust me, I have NOTHING against OC'ing at all or those who choose to do it, but IMHO if you're going to risk getting jacked up by a cop who received a "man with a gun call" by some hysterical mother demanding action I want it to be for a real gun.

But as we learnt in Tremors 3, you don't want to be caught with a fake gun when the graboids come.

Carrying a "replica" firearm should give no one a sense of security when in fact it will most likely draw more threat than it deters.

I foresee this causing an increase in "gun violence", think flashing this thing in a robbery, and accidental shootings by police when the MWAG call comes in.

Their FB page is almost a dead giveaway that it's a joke. They re-post anti-gun videos and say that their products are the solution... I think I found a picture of the owner:

Who knows if this is real or not, it's probably fake. Still, I can definitely see some people being interested in it and there being a market for it. Personally, I think it's a horrible idea. I was always trained that when weapons come into play, it can definitely escalate a situation. The mentality of a person who just intended to rob you, may turn into someone feeling like they are fighting for their life. If they have a weapon and you have something that looks like a weapon (and zero training most likely), I know who's gonna win that one. If it was real, I don't think it's a good idea. If it is real, we'll probably see some more natural selection.

Just another way to embolden those conducting the crimes. What absolute nonsense.

Maybe fake guns can be used to stop fictitious crimes? Shrug

Interesting. I might pick one up if it were legitimate and not too expensive, simply to further I social experiment.

I believe a significant factor in "uneventful" OC is that most of the masses are simply oblivious to those around them. They never even notice a displayed firearm, and thus there is *no* reaction, rather than a neutral or positive one.

I've often wondered about OCing down in MD. Somewhere far less urban than Baltimore, for example. Of course, doing so with my actual "OC gear" would be a really bad gamble in the name of "science". Big Grin
