I went grocery shopping late last night (early this morning), and with it being a holiday weekend, the police were everywhere! Driving through Euclid, OH on my way home, there was a DUI Check Zone. Euclid doesn't just do this around holidays. They do it at random times throughout the year, and I think it's a good practice. Anyway, I pulled between the last pair of officers standing in line. They stand across from one another, so they can both shine their lights in either side of your car. The officer on the driver's side asked me how I was doing, where I was going/coming from. I answered everything and said, "I also need to advise I have a permit to carry concealed, and I'm doing so right now on my passenger seat." He then smiled and said, "That's awesome! I like to see people exercising their rights! Have a safe weekend!"
It was my first time being in a LEO's presence while armed! I was nervous, for some reason, so I forgot to keep my hands on the wheel. They were folded in my lap, but he didn't say anything! Oops! Otherwise, I think it went well!
