    Love the mountains (good LEO contact)

    We had a fugitive loose in our county last week, and the place was crawling with State Police (I think I saw 40 units in the parking lot of the command post, no telling how many out and about). Around 1 AM my wife and I left the farm to take dear daughter to the airport.

    Pulled over to see if I was spiriting the bad guy out of the area, I handed the officer my driver's license and Concealed Permit. Hands on the steering wheel, I said, "Sir, I have a concealed carry permit, and I am carrying tonight; my wife has a permit and she's carrying as well."

    His response was "Everyone is, these days. Where is it?"

    I said "Inside my waistband, right side. My wife's is in her fanny pack."

    We then exchanged pleasantries about the search, and he bid me a good evening.

    I love living in the hills.

    When you have a good experience with an LEO make sure his dept knows, this will help younger officers see the example.

    Excellent! And I love the Shenandoah's. But I have learned to love the high plains desert.

    I say you call their super and thank them for the friendly contact and professionalism. JMHO, though.
