    example ofsituation....

    you are concealing your pistol and it is noticed by a passing officer, jacket blows open for brief enough show. he then comes to you and talks about the pistol he saw.

    How far can he or she go? can they ask for your pistol?



    I have talked to officers in past and they asked if i had any concealed weapons, because i like to be honest to officers i said yes and a CPL. all issues were very easy going and they never asked to see it. some sparked up long conversations about pistol preferences. the above question is to get knowledge from others and to be better prepared for posible issues. legal points wanted just as much as peoples 2 cents.thanks for answering

    It's all a grey area....

    Just remember to cover your ass and as long as you are not doing anything illegal you will have a case...


    Been harassed by the police? Yelled at by the anti-gun neighbors? Mother doesn't approve?

    Unless they have RAS, only if you tell them they can.

    That's my understanding.
    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." -John Stuart Mill

    From what I've heard 95% of LEO's are pretty respectful about the subject.

    Whats the time/place of this meet and greet you speak of? I'm from Bellingham, don't know what I'm doing on the 5th but it might not be too far for me to consider.

    Bob's Burger and Brew off of I-5 one exit north of Burlington. Saturday, June 5, 1:00 pm.
    I have OC'ed there a few times and at other Bob's too. Great Bleu cheese burger and nice refillable steak fries.
