    My first (Positive) LEO encounter

    I'll keep it quick because I know alot of these encounters get posted. But I was leaving the hospital this morning to get some breakfast for myself. (My wife just had our first baby last night, beautiful little girl) I was driving my wife's car and was not aware that the inspection was out by 2 months! (That, is completely my fault...dropped that ball on that one) The Officers were taking advantage of some construction that had the road down to 1 lane. He waved me into the parking lot and approached. He asked for my license and told him it was in my right rear pocket and asked if I could get it. After I gave him both my drivers and my carry license I asked to get the reg. out of the glove compartment and he said yes. He nicely asked me IF I was armed, what I was carrying, and where. I said nervously said "Yes, Glock 19, about 4:00"
    He handed me everything back and politely said to get the inspection taken care of and I affirmed that I would.

    Awesome, professional stop.

    very good

    When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

    Congrats on all accounts: the baby, getting off with a warning, and the postive reaction with the LEO.

    My only "bad" encounters with a LEO were with a certain NCHP officer who declared himself the new sheriff in town and decided to clean up my area by taking on all the "wild and reckless teenagers and their muscle cars," if that dates me. After he stopped me twice (hard to keep a '64 GTO in check), I avoided him like the plague. When he managed to become a judge with a mission, I took the opportunity to avoid becoming a "teen gone bad" and to join the service and head for other places. Since then any stops by officers were merited, both parties showed respect, and I, too, often received a warning instead of a fine.

    Attitude is everything with LEOs. Some people never seem to grasp that concept.

    Well you get two Congrats, and one Oops.
    Congrats on the new daughter, believe me she will probably have you wrapped around her little finger in no time.
    Also congrats on not getting a ticket for the expired inspection ticket, which brings us to the oops!

    Those are some very aware eyes there! What are you thinking, proficient with a rifle with scope, plus a killer shot with a .45?

    Gratz on the baby man, she's adorable.
