Thread: got pulled over today

  1. got pulled over today

    So I was pulled over by a small town cop today on my way home from a weekend camping trip.

    As he walked up to my Range Rover I turned it off and kept my hands on the wheel.

    The Cop told me he was pulling me over as a courteous stop. He told me my tail light was burned out. I knew this because my rover tells me anytime something isn't working. It had just burnt out on the way home and didn't have a spare. And I told him thanks

    I then told him I was carrying a concealed weapon and had a permit as well.

    He said okay. No problem can I see your license and insurance. He checked me out and never once asked for my permit. He sent me on my way.

    Nice guy. I must say I was a little nervous as he pulled me over.

    The one time I got pulled over I told the officer "I feel it is my duty to inform you that I am armed". The officer said that he appreciated that & asked where it was & I told him. He let me go with no problem whatsoever.

    Why did you "feel that it was your duty"?

    I was pulled over for making an illegal u-turn. The officer told me the reason for pulling me over and I then informed him I was carrying and that I had my permit. His reply was "well don't shoot me and we wont have any problems." As soon as I told him, his whole demeanor changed and never asked to see my permit, drivers license or anything. Gotta love being legally armed!

  7. Having a CHP is like a "certified good guy permit" We have jumped several hoops to get one... I think LEOs should thank us for not having to rely on them for our personal security...

    Sometimes it depends on the LEO and sometimes the person. We all have days wherein either of us woke up on the wrong side of the bed. You are both lucky. Congratulations for being level headed.

  9. Traffic Stop

    I was pulled over with my wife in the car after some jerk that was passing me on the Interstate spotted the Trooper coming down an on ramp and suddenly pulled right in front of me slowing down. So I get the lic &reg stuff. I now inform him of my CCW. He asked where then went back to his car & wrote a ticket for following to close. I went to court as I'm a former cop too. I won my case because this dips;(t couldn't tell a straight story under cross examination. But, he never once mentioned the gun. Beats me?

    I got stopped for speeding while I was in an unknown small town looking for a park. I was going 42 in a 25. I did my usual and had my out-of-state driver's license in my hand and military ID card which is required to validate my out-of-state driver's license, the glovebox open and the folder with my registration and insurance in my lap.

    I gave him all the required paperwork, he went back to his car, came back, gave me all my stuff and asked me to exit the vehicle. He walked back to between his car and mine, and I got out and followed him. He said he didn't want to "lecture" me in front of my family, but wanted to tell me to slow down and he was going to let me go with a warning.

    I didn't say anything about my openly carried firearm in the holster on my belt, and he didn't say anything about it either. I've never disclosed the presence of my firearm during a traffic stop, and it has *gasp* never been an issue.

    I usually do the same sir(congratulations by the way), but not to validate an out of state driver's license. Drivers licenses are required to be recognized across state lines by federal law. The exception for military memebers is that an most states consider an expired driver's license issued from a service member's home of record valid if presented with a Military ID for a period of time after the date of expiration. This period of extended validity varies from state to state and depends upon the state where the original license originated. This is to allow service members to renew their licenses while on leave.
