    Hi all. I have my CHP but just started OCing because its getting warmer and don't need a coat anymore.

    Anyhoo I was taking my kid home today and neede to stop for gas, I was going east on I70 atPeoria, I got off and went to the Circle K right off the highway. I was almost done putting gas in and a Denver cop pulls in, He is driving right by me and looks over, sees my gun and stops, gets out and then I relise I'm in Denver!

    He walks up and says"you know you can't carry that in Denver right?"

    I said "I thought I was in Saudi Aurora already" He just chuckles and tells me to get a map with the city limits on it and put in my glove box if I need to get out of the car in Denver.

    After that he says "have a nice day" Really nice guy.

    That's a cool cop. I wish all LEO's would handle themselves as professionally.

    No problem. I got it from another member, but I can't for the life of me remember who.

    Wow! From what I've heard about DPD, that was remarkable.

    I think your Saudi Aurora comment saved you hide! It gave me a good chuckle!

    I haven't heard that term since I lived in Littleton. Had to drive throught that pit to get to Buckley AFB.

    I think it could have been close to shift change or that I was about a block from city lines. Or he was just a genuinely nice person.

    I'd say it's the latter two.

    Out of curiosity, what are the potential consequences of stumbling into Denver while OCing? I ask as my employer could conceivably relocate me to the Denver area office.

    From what I hear, it can get pretty ugly if you rrun into the wrong cop. Jail, confiscation, fines. I got damn lucky, if I see him again, I'll buy him a doughnut!

    ...all the more reason to keep it covered up when you come "down the hill."

    I agree with the others in that you were lucky to encounter a pro-firearm policeman. While most are more than likely in support of armed law-abiding citizens it's not worth the risk of losing your CHP by crossing the wrong street in Denver. I'm glad your situation turned out as it did.
