    Got pulled over by a rookie today

    I got pulled over by an officer in training today.
    I drive a bright red crew cab one ton duelly pickup (read cop magnet), I overtook her going 45 in a 40, no big deal until I hit a old construction area where they had not taken down the signs yet (35). On went the lights, by the time she had made it to my door I had my DL and permit in my left hand and both hands on the wheel. She asked me if I was armed and where it was and I told her yes on my right hip @ 4:00. It was about this time I noticed that she was really pretty!! She asked me to keep my right hand on the dash and unbuckle and open the door with my left, I did so, stepped out of the truck, then she pulled my holster and pistol from it's residence. I noticed another officer in the car as she was taking the pistol back to her car, he seemed unconcerned.
    She wrote me a ticket for failure to obey a traffic sign, which was a lot better than a ticket for 10 over. She had unloaded the mag and put it and the bullets in a small baggie, replaced the pistol, action open in it's holster on the back seat of the truck, and told me I was free to go, but to not reload the gun until I was clear of the scene.
    I was very impressed at the professionalism and her cool head during the stop, so impressed that I called her commander and complimented her on the way she handled the situation, he thanked me and told me he would note it in her file, and let her know she was doing a good job. I'm glad to see that thier training is working regarding legal citizens carrying a gun, as the number is growing every dayI kinda hope I see her again offduty!!

    Hmmm...

    I cant remember the last time I even heard of an officer at any agency around here wanting to disarm a CHL holder.

    At least she didnt spaz out. Thats a good thing.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    All of the stories I see posted follow the theme of "...I showed my permit, told them I was armed, and got a warning because I was so upfront..." What, they give tickets even when you are legally armed and tell them?!

    I think if the truth be known, when a ticket is due, it's written whether the driver is "upfront" about carry or not.

    Sorry you got the ticket, flag, but at least it was tendered by officer foxxy.

    It's great that she didn't panic but I see no need in disarming someone. It's not like you were waving it around. Oh well, not a big deal. At least it turned out OK in the end.

    She had no valid reason to disarm you.

    I wonder if that was her FTOs approach (to disarm a guy with a permit)...personally, I believe it [edited for clarification--leaving the weapon in the holster, NOT handled by the owner or LEO] reduces the possibility of an ND, especially if it is a weapon officers are not familiar with (a la, 1911, HK P7) or any other weapon that is not the officer's duty weapon.

    As far as reloading...that's why I carry a spare mag....

    I still say that any stop by the police where they disarm a card carrying good guy is not a good stop or interaction with the police.

    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.

    I agree: no valid reason to disarm you. Need retraining.

    I'd think exactly the opposite. Much like aircraft problems largely occurring during takeoff and landing, it is during load/reload situations where weapons are mishandled. ND's do NOT occur with CHL carriers where the weapon remains intact. Given that a CHL carrier has been identified, I can't imagine one possible reason for a disarming to occur. Doesn't make sense to me. I mean, we're speaking of the top 1% of all law-abiding people, with proof that backround check and clean record has been achieved. It's not as though there's a real risk, here.

    I agree that she had no reason to disarm me, I however will not argue with LEO over something like that. I am a legally armed citizen, no more, no less.
