Last week I got pulled over 100 feet from my job. I pulled into a parking spot, rolled down my windows and pulled out my registration and insurance. I knew why I was pulled over, my tags expired in September.
My new registration was still sealed in the envelope. When the officer approached, I handed him my registration before he could say anything. He said, "Ah, that's what I was going to ask you for. Can I see your license too?"
"Yes sir," I said and handed it to him.
He asked me why I hadn't put the new sticker on yet and I told him that it's been too cold and the sticker won't adhere properly at these temperatures and I was waiting for warmer weather but forgot about it when it was warm enough.
He asked me where I was headed and I told him "To work, right there," as I pointed to my job.
He said, ok and that he was just going to verify the registration and to sit tight. He came back about a minute later and said it was good and asked if I could just make sure to put the sticker on when I pulled into work so I wouldn't get stopped again. I told him I would and then he says, "I notice you have a CCW permit, are you currently armed?" (Colorado does not require officer notification)
I replied that I was. He then asked me, "How's that working out for you? Ever had to use it?"
I replied, "Thankfully no." He then said, "Well, it's a nice thing to have. You have a good day."
I told him to do the same, thanked him and drove the last 100 feet to my work and promptly applied the sticker. He hung back to make sure I put it on. LOL.
The entire time, the officer was polite, courteous, and professional.
That's the way it's supposed to go!

Absolutely outstanding! That's how they all should go. No fuss, no muss. In fact, you should call his superior and give him a commendation for handling it in a professional manner and not going nuts. They usually hear the bad reports, not the good ones.

Good job on both sides.

WHAT?!? He didn't put his hand on his grip, ask you step out slowly, with your hands visible, turn you around and bend you over the hood of the car while he disarmed you for his own safety!?! This guy was just asking for it!!
Seriously, if you had a great encounter you should call it in and give some praise. Well done!

You are not paranoid if They are actually out to get you, however, They probably are not and you probably are.
Sounds like a good stop to me. I'm guessing this wasn't in the Denver area

That happened to my sister on the way to her CHL class LOL
She had the sticker in the car of course, but it had been raining for a week straight so she hadn't put it on in the rain (we have no garage or anything like that) -- the officer was understanding about that and didn't get upset about the gun either.
I kinda like that mine expires in May, usually decent weather then.
It's nice when your local LEO have good attitudes. Afterall, you might see him again some day.

Yep. That's the way it's supposed to go.

There are three kinds of people, sheep, sheepdogs, and wolves. If you don't understand this, you're a sheep.
Are you a turtle?
Definitely call it and give a commendation. It's good to hear about encounters with LEOs that go well.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards
