Like Tangle, I have great concerns over mis-identification and the possibility of a spoof police visit... or a no-knock. Highly unlikely but never possible to regard as IMpossible ever.

I figure on the dreaded police scenario, they're going to see me with a gun and shoot regardless in all honesty. I'm going to do the same, as I'm not going to likely be stopping to check credentials and neither are they.
We're all in for a world of hurt at that point.

Can you imiagine what would be going through your mind! No one wants to shoot a police officer but no one wants to surrender to a cop impersonator. I think my default is if they don't announce, I shoot; I may die, but like rfurtkamp said, "...they're going to see me with a gun and shoot regardless...". But then what if they do announce? Anybody can claim to be the police to get the upper hand.
Well, I'm in a cold sweat just thinking about it, I'm going to a happier thread!

I'm aware of the No Knock but they still will anounce sure it'll be crash police. However it will be a whole crowd of em. With the Bg it'll be 1-3 top's and they will very likely not look the part. But a few years back there was a Bg wearing a cop outfit stopping young ladies and then it got nasty, the tip off was his car it was an old de-comishioned squad beat all to heck that was the give away.
