I live on the Harbor and never had a problem with oc and I do ride alongs a lot and oc to the police dept. They just lock my gun up until I go home. But I have never been on a ride with the SD
Who cares if he would advise against doing it. I understand they all need to know and sounds like they do but you will always have a few who tell you this.
Sorry I did not answer what you ask just wanted to vent on this.
