    If a LEO damages your weapon while disarming you...

    Hey guys, I was hoping to pick your brains for a minute. Let's say you get pulled over and you inform the LEO that you are carrying a concealed weapon. For his safety he disarms you but in doing so he accidently drops your pistol on the pavement or gravel and it now has a few noticeable scratches in it. What is the correct course of action to take? I love my firearms almost as much as my wife and son lol, and it would really bother me to have one needlessly damaged. Is there anything you could do about it?

    If the dufus just drops it and bangs it up on his or her own? Here with dash cams showing the clumsy cop dropping a firearm they took for safetys sake if you pushed Id say the dept will replace or have repaired your firearm rather than have their officer drug all over the news pulling a boner like that. JMO

    Personally Im not that into what my guns look like. So if officer fumble fingers didnt jump up and down on it when they dropped it, or shoot themselve or me by dropping it, had not been a arrogant butt head during the stop and my gun only had a scratch or two with nothing broken Id likely just wait to hear an apology from the officer as he or she handed it back and let it go at that. But thats just me

    Ghost you know as well as I do the dash cam pictures would disappear or get lost.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    Probably so lol. Depends a lot of the individual officer. Some I know personally make sure it was taken care of. Some of em wouldnt. Not willingly anyway.

    I've never understood that, to be disarmed for officer safety? Its much safer leaving the firearm where it is than to hand it to someone else IMO. Do guns get jumpy around officers or something? I'm still new to guns.

    I'd be upset if a cop with butterfingers dropped my gun. I hope they would replace it. I don't mind regular wear but damage caused by someone else should be fixed by the person responsible.

    I have a lot of things I worry about some manufactured and some pretty important. I can honestly say I have not worried about an officer damaging my gun or dropping it.

    If it was a concern that deeply bothered me, I would carry an inexpensive, reliable fire arm. I would go with a Ruger LC9 or a Shield. Might look at a used gun. What ever it takes to give you peace of mind. If the likely hood of a LEO dropping my gun still bothered me I would then carry a Glock. Already ugly.

    The agencies local government would quickly shill out a few dollars to make good. Every city, county government has a legal department that deals with this stuff, and would not want something so minor cause problems.

    If something like that happens, I'd say you bought a cheap gun and he actually did you a favor. Not trying to be sarcastic there just being honest. If you witness him or her damaging it on deliberately then they should pay for it and be reprimanded by their superiors.

    Drop my Ed Brown, it goes back to Ed for refinish and parts replacement on anything damaged [ sights, gouges to slide/frame/grips, etc ]. Drop the glock, I'm probably going to laugh about it and expect I've just made a friend for life and no ticket issued.

    Wow, chill out dude. It was obviously a joke. But I do care about my guns. If YOU don't then why do you own them? To everyone else thanks for the responses. I'm not really worried about it. But the question did cross my mind and I figured this would be a good place to ask.
