another Leo experience
On Sunday mornings I usualy go to to the local waffle house for breakfast before going on to church.This past sunday was no different except that there 4 leo cars out front,no lights on or anything.They were just having breakfast too.The wind was blowing pretty hard and it must have blown my shirt up a little,so it evidently exposed my pistol for a second.When I got inside one of them said:I saw your shirt raise up some and I saw you were carrying,I assume you have a permit.I said yes sir,would you like to see it?He said:no I noticed you have some nice leather,a perp doesn't usualy spend money on a holster,so stay safe.I answered back:you all stay safe also.Nice bunch of guys.sj

What, they didn't all cuff and stuff you while they ran your info? No disarming of the MWAG? They must be off-duty.....................lol. Seriously though, sounds like he was just trying to compliment your holster honestly, what were you carrying and what holster were you using?

That was the funny thing.I was carrying a glock 19 in a Don Hume 721 open top.Nothing fancy at all.It was just a plain old cheap holster

I rather be safe then sorry.
It's better to have it when you need it then need it and dont have it.

Most LEO's are fair and reasonable, but the few that screw it all up get most of the attention, and the rest of us are thrown right into the barrel with them!

Yes, but the Don Hume 721 looks pretty slick for the few bucks it actually costs. A nice, fitted holster; not like the truly "plain old cheap" one-size-fits-none rigs.

True about the Don Hume 721. I have a brown one for my Kahr CW9. Couldn't find a black one anywhere, everybody was out of stock. Don Hume J.I.T. slide holsters are nice too.

Nice to know he's looking. There are some well trained LEOs out there. Could be your neighbor or your brother doing the job they are paid to do. Good on them.

I totally agree with you. However, it happens not only with LEO's; you will find bad apples wherever you look.

Nice story. Makes me want to invest in a nice holster.

Sir, I'm certain I agree with you that most LEO's are 'fair and reasonable' according to their standard, but the rest of you will always be lumped to the same bad-apple barrel due to your chosen silence when the rotten ones screw up quite regularly.
