    My first time pulled over with CWP...Good experience!

    Well, let me first say I haven't been pulled over since 1997 (given a warning), so it's been a good 14 years between stops So today, I am on my way home from school (final semester of nursing school). On my way home I stopped at a sporting goods store to pick up a new soccer ball for my daughter, and I took the opportunity to re-arm since I had left campus. (SC law allows CWP holders to leave their firearm in the glove compartment of a locked vehicle on school campus). On my way home, about 3 miles from my house, I had the radio turned up, listening intently to Rush Limbaugh, and then I noticed a LEO (State Trooper) headed my direction. I looked down and I was going about 12 over the limit I tried to slow down quickly, but I knew he was going to light up. Sure enough, I saw his blinker turn on as I drove past him so I slowed down and pulled off into a business parking lot as he came behind me with his lights on.

    I keep my truck paperwork in the middle console under my stereo just in case of such a scenario, therefore not having to dig around in my glove box. I rolled down my window and I pulled my wallet out, fished out my drivers license (while may wrists rested on the top of the steering wheel). I didn't get my CWP out before he got to my door.

    Me: "Good afternoon officer."
    Officer: "Good afternoon. Can I see your license and registration please?"
    Me: "Yes sir." (Handing him my license, and then working on pulling out my CWP.) "I am a licensed concealed weapon permit holder."
    Officer: "Okay. You don't have to take that out, it's okay."
    Me: "Thanks. I do want to let you know that I have my firearm on me, right side 2 o'clock."
    Officer: "That's okay."
    Officer: "I pulled you over for speeding back there."
    Me: "Yes sir. I was listening to Rush Limbaugh and got carried away. When I saw you I checked my speed and realized I was speeding."
    Officer: "I'll be right back."
    Me: "Yes sir."
    Maybe three minutes passed by. Officer hands me a piece of paper.
    Officer: "I am giving you a warning. Please just slow it down."
    Me: "Yes sir!"

    That my friends is the perfect stop. Oh, and had he given me a ticket, I would say the same thing (I did deserve it!).

    Are you required to inform in your state?
    "I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
    You are not paranoid if They are actually out to get you, however, They probably are not and you probably are.

    Nothing wrong with that stop, and no ticket.

    This is the way every traffic stop should go. But, sadly, they don't. And while it isn't always the LEO who 'cops' a bad attitude, they have the power of the badge behind them.

    I recently discussed this issue with a veteran T.H.P.D. training officer while packing up my gear after enjoying a practice session. He stated with disgust that there were three patrol officers in his department that he tried to get suspended due to their aggressive behavior, but to no avail because of their connections. He just shook his head and informed me their cocky attitudes exceeded the embarrassing level, and would eventually cost the city a lot of bad press and money after they seriously injured a private citizen during an otherwise routine traffic stop.

    SC CWP Rules

    I just received my SC CWP yesterday and I would like to know if I am stopped by the police, do I have to produce my CWP if I do not have a weapon on or in the car. I read somewhere that I am required to procuce the cwp with or without a weapon in my possession.

    This is what I found for SC

    Section 23-31-215. Issuance of Permits.
    (K)
    A permit holder must have his permit identification card in his possession whenever he carries a concealable weapon. When carrying a concealable weapon pursuant to Article 4 of Chapter 31 of Title 23, a permit holder must inform a law enforcement officer of the fact that he is a permit holder and present the permit identification card when an officer (1) identifies himself as a law enforcement officer and (2) requests identification or a driver’s license from a permit holder. A permit holder immediately must report the loss or theft of a permit identification card to SLED headquarters. A person who violates the provisions of this subsection is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, must be fined twenty five dollars.
    The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. ~Burke, Edmund

    This is one of those "honesty is the best policy but if there's nothing to be honest about in the first place, don't bother" things...

    If I were somewhere NOT carrying and was pulled over, I wouldn't say anything about it (why would I?). Now if the officer ran my plates and feels the need to ask if I'm carrying or transporting a weapon, I would probably say "I do have a permit, but I'm not carrying at the moment" or something along those lines.
