    Good experience with a LEO today

    About 11:30 today I got a call that Dad had been involved in car accident today about a mile from home. So I get in the car and rush to the scene. When I get there it didn't look good one car on it's lid and my Dads car in the middle of a tree. The ambulance was already there getting ready to take him out along with the
    police. I ran up to his car to see if he was alright, he was just a little banged up, he's the only one who didn't walk away from the wreck. Everything finally calmed down and I was helping the police out with my dads insurance and info. At that time I notified the LEO that I was carrying and had my CWL. His reaction was funny, he said "really, as long as you don't pull yours I wont pull mine." he didn't ask to see my CWL. All I can say at least everyone walked away alive.

    Wow, scary about your dad! I'm glad he's not too badly injured though. Hope the bruises heal quickly.

    Love the LEO's response! :)

    Priorities were in the right place, with a dash of humor.
    My best to your Dad, that had to be scary!!

    First, I'm glad your dad's ok, but why did you volunteer that you were armed? Unless, OK is a must notify state (and I have no idea if it is or not), I think most would agree that not saying anything about it would be better.

    Again, sorry if OK is a must notify state, I honestly have no idea if it is or not.

    Even if you don't have to, courtesy is always a good reason, especially when leaning in and out of cars and whatnot. Easy situation to inadvertently expose your piece in. Why not preempt any issues?

    Of course there's plenty here that will say you should never say a thing to the cops. God forbid you should tip your hand in case he goes rogue on you.

    Once I called the cops for what I thought was a break-in at a storage box on a nearby undeveloped property. Right or wrong I went with the cop; as we were driving I said, "Um - just so we don't have any surprises, I have a permit and I'm carrying at the moment." He thanked me for the courtesy and that was that. 'Course, we ARE in the country. False alarm, too.

    First hope all is well with your dad.

    As to the LEO experience, that's how they all should go!

    Hope your Dad makes a speedy recovery.

    Sounds like a great LEO interaction. If only they all went that well.

    So ten and a half hours later my Dad is out of the emergency room and everything is fine. He's just a little soar. There was some question about notifing, we have to notify a LEO if we are in contact with a LEO on official business. I want to thank everyone for well wishes.

    Oklahoma is a must notify state if in official contact with a LEO.
