First time getting pulled over while carrying
Well I like to drive fast and I knew it was only a matter of time and today it happened. Got pulled over going 76 in a 65 by a state trooper on the highway today while carrying. He said he was going to give me a warning straight away as I handed him my license and CC permit. He immediately casually asked if I had a firearm in my possession which of course I said yes, on my right hip. He told me to make sure I don't reach for it so we don't have any "misunderstanding" and told me he would be right back. Coming back to the car I noticed him unlatch his strap on his holster and walk back hand on pistol till he could once again see my hands. He gave me the warning and leaned in my passenger window to tell me that I wouldn't believe how many people when asked if they had a weapon immediately reach for it. I said that is one mistake I was never willing to make. He then told me to "be safe" and reached in and shook my hand.
I have never had a police officer shake my hand after pulling me over (yes it happens often). The tone of his voice and his gesture while he didn't say it I could tell was in relation to my carrying. Overall a good experience and the officer was extremely professional. While in Wisconsin you are not required to notify police while carrying I feel that it is a matter of courtesy to the officer. Had he asked me to get out of the car for any reason it would have only complected things if I needed to tell him at a later point that I was carrying.
