    5 Years and 8 months

    I haven't been stopped for at least 5 years, and then it was because I had a headlight out. I have been CC for about 8 months now and was stopped today.

    I did a bonehead move, and pulled out from a yield sign in front of a SO Deputy. Then as I turned a short block later forgot to signal. So as i parked he pulled up behind me with lights flashing.

    I took my CCL and DL out of my breast pocket, rolled down both front windows, shut off the van and placed the keys on the dash. I then kept my hands on wheel. When he approached me i told him i was a CCL holder and was armed. (No Duty to inform in KS, I just did out of courtesy, LEO jobs are hard enough) Told him where the firearm was and he thought for a minute, and just said to leave it there. He looked over both my licenses and basically just said i would just get a warning. He then asked what i thought about the constitutional carry law and we had a short visit about it. I couldn't really tell what he thought about. He then handed my CCL back and went to finish.

    I had my kids in the back seat and was picking my wife up downtown. Just had the entire downtown gawking at us It was a very positive encounter given the circumstances.

    Just thought I would share my encounter with the LEO kind.

    You did everything the right way. So did the LEO. Good encounter for all I'd say.

    I think as more and more people are getting their permits as they are in Missouri, police are finding it more of a routine encounter.

    It is good to see, the increasing comfort level. I'm sure LEO's are generally highly on-guard with any encounter, given the general prevalence. But it's not as though the increasing number of GG's carrying has fundamentally altered the number of BG's in possession.

    Kudos to the LEO in question, and the department's training.

    Hopefully all such encounters can be as smooth and "BP-free" as this one turned out to be.

    You did good, Be polite and admit when you make a mistake. The kids will remember that. For a long time. Of course they'd remember daddy being tased even longer.

    I had the same thing happen twice once in Fairport NY and Once in East Rochester Ny on my way to work. In E. Rochester I was doing 45 in a 35 in Fairport I had a head light out...both times I kept my hands at 10 and 2 told the officer I was armed showed em my pistol permit and was let go...hell in Fairport the officers were admiring my pistol wanting to know where they can get one... I was let go without a ticket.

    Got to say that I have never been pulled over. Can you believe that lol - watch tomorrow I'll get pulled over. Anyway, with everyone in KS allowed to carry now, I can only assume that every LEO would assume you are carrying, so I doubt I would say anything about being armed unless asked directly. But that's me - I have no problem with the law - at all - but I live with an attorney, and she would be capital A Angry if I volunteered anything other than that I was asked lol. It's a curse lol.


    Isn't it the law to keep your hands up or on the wheel when you are pulled over in KS now? Or is it only in Topeka??

    You should take your family and friends and sit down in the middle of the busiest intersection in your city and then challenge and swear at the LEO's when they respond...

    If its a law its one of many I had no idea about.

    Good to hear it worked out and you didn't get a ticket. I let them know I have a CCW and the location. I would rather be upfront with them and put all the cards on the table. If they don't know before they walk up to the window, I'm sure they will find out when they run the DL.

    We were taught (by LEO) in our permit class to keep our hands on the wheel at 10 and 2 so the officer can SEE THEM and we do not look threatening. And of course, have the driver's license (and carry permit possibly), registration and insurance card in the hand closest to the window.... Law or not, I think it's a good idea.

    That was my thought considering it is the same number.
