    I called the police a little while ago in reference to a suspicious vehicle here in my neighborhood. I needed to go outside a little while later, and ran into said Police Officer. he'd already checked out the vehicle and was updating the CAD.

    While I was having a conversation with him, I asked him how the night was going. He showed me on the CAD that there were 6 Officers out on a gun call. I asked if it was an OCer, and he said no, it was a domestic.

    He then brought up the fact that OC was catching on, and there was a MWAG call at the mall some weeks ago. The person who was stopped was polite, knowledgeable and spoke well to the Officers. He's a good example, as he was our first stop.

    I said "That was me", and he said, "I guess I should have known...nice gun." He did not e-check me. We finished our conversation, and I went home.

    This seems to be getting better and better.

    Another great story. And another reason not to stand down UOC'ing, just follow OPS Marine's lead.

    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    Just trying to do my part to place a positive face on this. There are so many who will depict us as being out of our minds, when the truth is quite the opposite. I may be the only person in my area to be OCing, and that's just fine with me. The more Police that even have a thought to contact me seem to have heard of me. All with good reviews. Can't shake a stick at that.

    I will continue to be set forth a good example...well, at least I hope to.
