    LE Story from Texas

    I knew this was bound to happen and yesterday, it did.

    Based on many recommendations on this forum (thanks, again!) I now carry a Kimber 1911 4" and now that it is summer in Houston, I switched from the IWB to an El Paso Sky Six holster.

    I was doing some shopping at Central Market in Houston and ran into an HPD officer who roams the parking lot as off duty security. I have seen this lady many times but never had a word with her. As I was getting out of my car, I felt my shirt rise up on my right side so I quickly pulled it down, never exposing the gun.

    Just then, she walked up to me and I knew what it was about. The pucker factor was raised a little when she asked "Hey, whatcha carrin'?". Oblivious to her pleasant manner, I quickly become defensive and said "I have a permit". She laughed, and again said "well I figured that. I saw the outline. But what are you carrying?". I told her and we went back and forth about if she should buy one, that her b/f has one, she loves to fire it, etc. She then asked halfhearted "may as well see your CHL at this point". I showed her and that was that. She thanked me for the info on the Kimber and I was on my way.

    Very pleasant experience and kudos to the HPD!

    The way it should be!!

    The way it usually is around here, if they even ask to see the permit.

    Umm ... how do I put this as to not offend ...

    For a lady cop, she was more attractive than the standard.

    Get my drift?

    That's what we like to here and that fact that she was "better than standard" made it all the more enjoyable.

    "A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013

    You didn't require her to 'frisk' you?
