    I had to tell a LEO I was carrying for the first time!

    My car decided it had run its last mile the other day and left me stranded in the middle of nowhere in the 100+ degree heat. As I waited for the tow truck (AAA finally pays for itself) a deputy pulled up and got out and approached me on the side of the road. He asked if I had help on the way, I said yes then informed him of my permit and that I was currently carrying. He thanked me for informing him and didn't ask to see the gun or the permit. (NC law says you have to tell them).
    We chatted a couple of minutes then the tow truck arrived. He watched it get loaded and I thanked him for stopping and he was on his way.
    My hat is off to the Wilson County Deputy.

    Sucks about the car, but sounds like everything else went ok. So, was the deputy's reaction what you expected?

    Now that is what one would expect in a low key contact...

    I thought he might ask to see the permit or something, I was very impressed with him.

    Sorta deputy who wants to make sure you are OK and not needing further assistance. One of the very many guys just doing a job and looking to help out if needed.

    I doubt he saw a shadow of threat and so was probably hardly too interested in the CCW angle.

    These are the guys we should hear more about - they keep the wheels nicely oiled.

    If you remember the name of the deputy, you might want to send a nice thank you letter to the Sheriff's Department appreciating that the deputy took his time and effort to make sure you were safe. They usually place those letters in the deputy's folder as reference and in turn they get to say "Gee, that guy with CCW sure is nice."

    +1 on the note of appreciation.

    +1 on the note of appreciation and it sounds as if your interaction with the Deputy went just as it should have.

    You should write an ataboy. Most people are quick to sound off when they are upset but seem to forget the nice things.
