    So I was pulled over last night a little after midnight. The officer asked me if I knew why she pulled me over(i was texting and swerved a little bit), I told her I was OCing. She said, "Ok, give me your DL and blue card." I reply that its in my back right pocket behind gun. She asks me to step out of my car and walk to squad car. I place my hands on "buddy bar," she removes my wallet from my back pocket(with my permission). Asks me why I(a KID) feel the need to carry a gun. I explain cuz you guys aren't always around. She tells me her first gun was my model Beretta but .45 instead of .40. Leaves my gun in my holster on me, runs my info and let's me go with a warning(failure to maintain lane), because I was cooperative and informed her about my gun right off the bat. When I first saw the lights in my rear-view mirror I was positive I was gonna be harassed, thankfully there are good cops out there.

    Very first mistake and a serious one at that... TEXTING WHILE DRIVING! In the last 60 days here in Idaho, local to me, several deaths. One in particular a 17 year old high school student that ran his pickup head on into a school bus while his parents were in the car directly behind him. I cannot even imagine the devastation in their lives.

    Good encounter with the LEO. Perhaps she was more impressed with your "weapon" more than you realized!
    Chuck Norris/Ted Nugent That's the ticket for 2016!

    Very true. I work insurance, and they're telling us now that "TWD" is more dangerous (and deadly) than DWI/DUI. Don't believe me? Every second you look down at your phone is a second you have taken your eyes off the road.There is nodifference between looking down and just closing your eyes. So next time you're driving, close your eyes long enough to send or read that text and see how you feel/react. (I will admit I text at red lights. I'd rather someone honk than end up under my tires).



    Back to topic, that is a AWESOME story. Officer observed measure for her safety without disarming a citizen, and let him go without being harassed about the gun. :celebrate

    My only question for people who text behind the wheel, what is so important that you have to get/send the message right now, you just can't wait to pull over or reach your destination?

    The phone companies and the youth culture have done a good job of drilling and selling into peoples minds that you can't live without a cell phone and that you have to use it constantly even if by using in you are putting other safety in danger.


    Freedom is a bit like sex, when your getting it you take it for granted, when you're not you want it bad, other people get mad at you for having it and others want to take it away from you so only they have it.

    Guns don't kill people, drivers talking/texting on cell phones do.
