    Get well soon, and hope you learned a lesson, rearending a car at 35 to 40 could have caused considerable damage not only to you but to the car you hit. Be thankfull for the courtesy shown to you by both police and emt's, wondering, did they send another ambulance or did the one you refused to stop for help you out ?
    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American GI. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    I asked my stock broker the other day, what I should be investing in ....his reply, canned goods n ammo !!!

    Sorry for your misfortune. Sounds like everyone handled the situtation appropiatley. I was a paramedic for 10 years and never picked up anyone carrying other than law enforcement. That was almost 10 years ago. We would have done the same as your responders did under our protocall.

    No, I normally tuck the seatbelt behind the gun so it is accessible. In fact when I exited the car, I noticed my shirt had
    rode up over it so it was somewhat visible. In fact I think the other driver saw it (but I was not completely clear on that at the moment). I did pull the shirt down to cover it. I believe the guy I hit told the cops I had a gun, but not in an
    "emergency" way, so they were cool about it. (I wasn't sure how else they knew I had one!)
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    No, 2 miles north of that : 15th and Broadway (164th and Broadway in OKC terms).

    No,she doesn't have one. The cops did not make a big deal out of it. Me, I was pretty out of it, and I think that is why?

    Does OK have a "gun license"? I know they have carry permits, but really licenses for guns?

    It isn't illegal for your daughter to have a handgun even if she wasn't 21 yet, she just can't purchase one. Unloaded for transportation is perfectly fine without a permit, even in OK, so I don't see what the big deal was.

    And yes, when you see an emergency vehicle with lights and siren you should slow down, not speed up and try to beat it. Get well, rethink your driving habits while you're recovering for your and everyone else's safety.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Been through that one a bazillion or two times.

    Glad you're OK. Tough deal.

    No, Oklahoma has a "Self Defense Act", which is our CCW law, gives those that qualify a license to carry concealed.

    Hope you enjoy a full recovery - that was a bone head move but everyone who hasn't had one is just waiting for one! Like most stupid mistakes - we can only hope we learn something from them. You seem like the type that will! Good luck!
    Great privilege comes with great responsibility.

    Glad the gun aspect was handled smoothly for you. One less thing to worry about!

    For some odd reason, my right foot also sustained injury. (??) But I hope that your overall soreness goes away quickly.
    Fortune favors the bold.

    Freedom doesn't mean safe, it means free.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)
