She ought to have it in her hands shortly before Christmas. Just in time for the pistol I'll be getting her for Christmas.
Went with her to the courthouse today. As I emptied my pockets to go through the metal detectors I realized I'd left a speedstrip in my back pocket. I looked at her & quietly said I'd need to run back to the car real quick as one of the officers looked at me and asked, "What do you have?"
To which I replied, "Sorry sir, I have my CPL and I'm unarmed, but I have a reload in my pocket."
He held out his hand and said, "No problem, you can leave it with me and pick it up on your way out." Handed me a retrieval card. I expected more questions than that. I smiled and said thanks to the concerned looking young rookie cop standing nearby. As I walked through I heard them examining and admiring my Hornady Critical Defense amongst each other.
Stupid mistake on my part. An explanation and resolution than never should have been necessary. Lesson learned. All's well that ends well..
