    You were out of your house for how long without it and people flamed you? I'm curious as to which site this was...

    I'm sorry but if you honestly feel that you can't go out in your own yard for 30 minutes without HAVING TO BE ARMED, you need help. Don't get me wrong I'm all for carrying every minute you can, but every now and then it's OK to step out in your backyard without a gun.

    Or was it the fact that you agreed to be disarmed (and by this I mean asked politely to disarm) by such fascist crazies that would dare to even ask!
    In answers to your questions, the website I got flamed at, is no longer up as for the reason they flamed me was that I allowed myself to be disarmed. As for carrying in my yard, no I didn't need to, I had just gotten home from work, been carrying all day, hadn't taken the rig off, just that simple. I don't need help, I don't think
    If you want a battle of the wit's, please come armed.

    You did OK and didn't get an attitude. As mentioned, now he knows you are "one of the good guys". Might have been different if you had gotten an attitude with him.

    I see no problem with your disarming. In all probability you had another firearm on the property anyway.

    YOU DID WHAT?

    He he... just kidding!

    I too find it hard to imagine the mentality that would flame you for your response. My mama used to say "you catch more flys with honey than vinegar"!
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    judgement to keep himself out of situations that would require a display of his

    I too am surprised you got flamed elsewhere - it was your decision to comply and probably made everything go much smoother.

    No flames from me

    Not knocking you, knocking the one's who flamed you,

    ...I carry to take out the trash in my apartment complex.

    Heck, I've carried while cooking!

    ENSANE1970:

    the site that you got flamed on is no longer up for good reason. But we'll let that go since we have this site and it's serving a much broader intellect than the other site.

    I think the concesus here is that you chose to disarm and it may very well pay off for you in the future. As some have said, your now one of the reasonable and intellectual good guy's.

    I would have done the same. Good work.

    Cool

    You did the right thing, you kept a non-issue from escalating into an issue IMHO.

    I agree that an officers' job is tough enough, and if I can help him focus on what he should be, then I will unless I feel an immediate threat. In your case If I felt that the kid might be some sort of threat, I just would've gone inside and locked up tight.

    I guess i would have just went inside and covered-up. Then after all is over go about my business. What would happen if that kid they went to talk to shot the cop and was getting ready to fire more shots. Are you required to remain disarmed?? What did disarmed mean anyway?? You could have just went inside and be watching from the window with your AR15, or whatever weapon (sniper rifle, tactical shotgun).

    Flamed? Where's my matches!! he he.

    Just kidding,,, Sounds like you did good and the police officer was very professional. You probably really surprised him carrying on your own property.

    I'm glad that everything worked out ok.

    ps. We are not here to flame but to support.
