Very cool!I remembered all of the things I learned on the forum about how to handle the situation and started down the list by pulling over in a good spot and far enough off the road so that it would not be hazardous for the officer. I turned off the car and turned on the interior lights on my mirror and rolled down the window about an inch or so and then put my hands on the steering wheel with my palms down but with my hands spread open.
IMO- i beleive the above captioned was one of the MAIN reasons this encounter went so well. It wasn't too long ago that someone made a post about the LEO that threw a fit when the guy didn't let LEO know he was CFP carrier, even though he wasn't carrying.
It sounds like you made this stop very "Easy" on the officer, and he rewarded you thusly. Very sMart move on your part.
Kudos bro! You get a dancing monkey!
+1Having a good experience like this also helps me gain more respect for LEOs and helps quell my fears that they might abuse their authority against the law-abiding public.
