    Just got in from my hour jog around town. I always go armed, and in rocky warmth gear to boot. I carry a glock 21t in a serpa lvl3 at 3'o clock side.

    About halfway through my jog, a local city police car drove by my strong side from behind and passed, not slowing at all. "i of course thought he didn't even notice" this apprehension was alleviated as he soon made another pass towards me, again not slowing and making no notion i was committing a crime or suspicious.

    He then stopped and went stationary in the open lot in the middle of my jogging area "which is in the middle of town on sidewalks."

    At no time was I stopped or questioned or even looked at in a suspicious manner. and I finished my jog and went right past him no more than 18ft away on the side walk across his stationary position.

    I was pleased.


    I even placed a call on my cool down walk back to my residence to complement the shift sergeant.

    CALL as Spoken

    DEPT. Bluefield City police department.

    ME. Non emergency call, id like to place a compliment to one of your on duty officers.

    DEPT. One moment ill transfer you to shift sergeant.

    SGT. Sgt ***** how can i help you.

    Me. This is ******* id like to compliment one of your officers sir

    SGT. Ok who was it.

    ME. Well Sgt, are you familiar with open carry?

    Sgt. Yes open carry

    ME. Id like to complement your officer, I was a jogger that was open carrying and he showed allot of respect to us, and we appreciate that.

    SGT. Yeah he radioed me about that.

    ME. Alright, well i sincerely do appreciate it, and its a great sign of respect to law abiding citizens, while remaining alert this time of year as well.

    SGT. Thank you.

    ME. thank you, bye

    END


    So even though the officer on duty was not aware of the legality, he radioed in to confirm. This doesnt particularly suprise me, but It is better than getting his feet wet just to have to let me go, and be embarassed.

    The process they followed in this situation got a compliment instead of a complaint.

    The Sgt didnt seem to care about OC in the sence he appreciated it. But acceptance is a fantastic step.

    It's not up to him to "accept".

    However, your "non" experience (in that there was no LEO-initiated contact) serves to show that not ALL of the minions of the state are completely without some sense of character and reason.

    I've been trying to find an effective way to carry while jogging. I can't carry with my Serpa @ 3:00 like I normally would, there's just too much bouncing around. I usually go running around midnight, so I'd like to find something that works so I don't have to go out unarmed like I've been doing.

    I'm not familiar with the G21t, can you explain???
    Just busting your chops.


    Also, it is usually just stated as 3 o'clock, no need to add side as there is only one 3 o'clock the opposite or left side would be9 o'clock.

    3o'clock would be at/near the seam of the pants (center line).


    Non event encounters with LEO's are agood thing.

    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    This is why I've had so many "good" encounters with you, Grape. :P
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
