    LEO Interaction...

    So...Today I pull into a convenience store in Alma just as the Chief of Police pulls his nice black shiny new Dodge Charger RT into a parking spot near by. I pull out my shiny full size 1911 out of the case in plain view of said officer, load a mag, rack the slide and holster it. He looks over at me, smiles and waves, says; "your lights are on." Continues on into the store.

    I liked that.

    Crazy to think that your actions there would have you zip tied and treated like a terrorist in another corner of the country.

    You are lucky I missed my keyboard. I was expecting something bad. I started laughing so hard.

    I know what that's like in my county, but I don't know if I would expect that YOUR county. Yah, it's YOUR county.

    That's pretty much the way it should go.
    You're not doing anything wrong, the Nice Officer is friendly & helpful.

    After the burglary, I sent a nice letter to Chief Flynn commending the officer who came to my house for his calm almost non-reaction to my being armed.

    Wink Lights...

    If you have a new(er) Charger then the lights shouldn't matter. They should have Auto-Off...

    Was there something else going on..??

    Oh, dear! Don't drive anything that could possibly be mistaken for a police car.
    Joseph can tell us all about that...

    So, you don't know about the incedent that sparked the large Open Carry Protest at State Patrol Headquarters in Waukesha County?

    I am sure some could dig up that thread if it's not on the old website.

    I drive whatever I can afford and will do to it what I please. This is America is it not? Last I check, we live free no matter how much they want to infringe upon our lives, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.
