    This was a little weird...

    So I just ran to Kroger to get a couple of things (pop, ice cream, typical 1am stuff) and, on my way back into my apartment complex, I saw the IMPD red and blues going behind me. I stopped and turned my vehicle off. The officer walked up to my window as I was thumbing through my wallet to get my license. I handed him my DL and he proceeded to ask me if there were any guns in the car. I told him that I did have one and that it was on my right hip.

    This is where it gets weird. He didn't want me to get out of the Jeep; just told me to keep my hands on the wheel. He said that he saw my LTCH under my DL and figured that I had one on me. Anyways, he proceeds to reach through my rolled-down window, across my body, and through my outstretched arms to disarm me. I carry a PF-9 with a belt clip IWB and I drive a Cherokee with almost five inches of lift, so it wasn't the easiest thing to retrieve. I was a little sketched since there was one in the pipe (told him so), but he acted like he does it forty times a day. It was awkward.

    So he got my pistol and went back to his car for a while. Upon return, he handed me the cleared round and put my Kel-Tec in the back seat. He then said I was free to go. That was all. Didn't even tell me why he pulled me over. Is this normal protocol?

    He was a nice enough guy, but I kind of feel owed an explanation. I guess I'll never know...

    You probably won't know since you didn't ask. I'm glad he didn't accidentally shoot you, but maybe your PF-9 has one of those safeties on it.

    Whats with the back seat routine? That is strange.
    The unarmed man is not only defenseless - he is also contemptible.

    You mean you haven't seen that new-fangled multi-safe Kel-Tec?
    I was a dummy for not asking. That's what I get for being in a hurry.

    It is apparently the cool thing to do these days. A co-worker of mine got pulled over the other day and it was the same deal. Gun to the back seat.

    You and your coworker should quit telling them you have firearms if you don't like them taken away, cleared and put in the back seat.

    You can just ask, "why am I being detained?"

    It saves time and ensures a safer encounter for everyone.

    Stop being so silly...Why would he ask the officer when he could just ask people on the internet well after the fact?

    I'm getting the pole and tackle out of the truck at Lake Lemon. Second time in a week I've been checked by CO's. Small talk about spinning reels as I drag out the wallet, (from the weak side.)

    CO doesn't really act too concerned as I fumble for my fishing license. Nicely enough, he says "if you can't find it, just let me have your driver's license." I didn't get it, but I gave him my drivers license.

    As I find the fishing license, I wave it to him after calling in my DL. As he is reading my lifetime hunting and fishing license the call comes back clear on his walkie about my clean driving record. Don't get it on why the check??? He says thanks and proceeds on to others fishing.

    BTW - Hard to believe he did not see the "pink paper," seemingly designed to stick out beyond the others in your wallet. The whole ordeal happened face to face while I "hid" a 1911, two mags and two front pocket Emersons under a Tshirt.
