    Tell her, "I have weapons ... find them!"
    Gotta say though, I don't see any reason for her to have disarmed you either. The idea of someone else fumbling with a loaded weapon that's strapped to my body makes me REALLY nervous. How cute would she have seemed if she'd caused an ND and wounded you? I would've written that letter a bit differently.

    I'm incredibly ticklish and probably would have received a face-plant when I jumped or preformed an involuntary elbow strike.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    I don't understand. You say that she had no right to disarm you but you called her superior and praised her for her professionalism. Your lucky she didn't shoot you by accident. If she is that afraid then she has no business being a leo.

    I have one question. If she were ugly would you still feel the same?

    I agree. I certainly do not think she handled it professionally, and her actions were more worthy of a complaint than a compliment. I would very much resent being disarmed in that situation. You showed her your permit, so she should realize you were carrying legally in your vehicle. For her to disarm you is an insult.

    For you guys getting bothered by the disarming thing;

    somebody needs retrained and it isnt the LEO. Personally, I wouldnt unless there is someother circumstance, but generally speaking, that is policy and well within legal guidelines.

    In Arizona, we're not even required to notify police we're armed unless asked.

    I've Had it done twice(disarm and unload) One time he put it in my toolbox in the bed of my truck, the other time I was having a bad day and almost went to jail. He run the numbers and give it back to me and handed me a hand full of bullets and said don't reload it. I told him I had broken no law and would wait till he got in his car to reload my weapon.
    He told me I had 15 sec to get off the side of the road or he was taken me to jail, so I pulled into a parking lot about 20 yards from where we were and started to load my pistol, he was still siting where he stopped me, I finished loading it and stuck it in between the seat and my leg, buckled up and pulled out. As soon as I hit the road he pulled up behind me and hit his lights, I pulled over and he slowed down to give me a stare down and kept going. Every other time I haven't had a problem.Don't make sense to me!

    That is very dangerous SOP. I would have complained to command.

    While not the best practice to unload a unfamiliar firearm , it is within their right to do so during a stop.

    Some interesting back and forth with police and non-LEO in this thread Disarming CCW carriers. - Police Forums & Law Enforcement Forums @ Officer.com regarding holding the guns of licensed carriers.

    I guess I can understand removing the gun, but a psycho could do just as much harm to the officer with a vehicle.

    That is some scary reading there!!

    The arrogance of some of the officers is unbelievable and inexcusable.

    I have heard the whole "for officer safety" line and I don't buy it. If I have a permit, have gone to the trouble and expense to get the training and bring myself to the attention of law enforcement, given them my finger prints and background checks to get that permit, why is it necessary for the officer to feel unsafe around me? The odds are very good that I know my weapon better and handle it in a safer manner than the officer knows his/her or handles his/hers.
