Somewhat embarrassing stop by LEO
A couple of years ago I was hurrying back home after picking up my brother & SIL from the Austin airport. Had just dropped them off at their house in Balcones Village after midnight, and was going about 10mph "over" on Lake Creek Parkway to 620 on the way back to my Brushy Creek neighborhood.
Two APD cruisers pulled me over in the gas station (now closed) on 620. The LEO who approached my car was very courteous and asked the usual questions (I admitted I was probably going too fast, but explained why the hurry - it was waaay past my bedtime after the late night airport run), while I kept my hands in plain sight on the steering wheel with both IDs (DL & CHL) ready.
While examining the cards, he asked me if I was armed... to which I said yes, but that weapon was in the car console. He did not ask to see it, but did inquire as to what kind it was. When I told him "A Keltec .32", he just kind of looked at me...and I swear his eyes teared up a bit & his lips were quivering like he was gonna bust out laughing. I felt about as small as a .22 short. :redface:
He just gave me a verbal warning & sent me on my way.
Not long after that, I bought a Kahr PM9.
