    Here in Colo, I know of some counties where you would get your CCW revoked for such a blatant disregard of the speed limit.
    I agree with you Ken about the first part...... 75 in a 55 zone is flying, as for as getting a ticket is concerned.

    I've never heard to the second part...... Which Colorado counties would revoked your license for speeding? Pls PM me if you wish.... Thanks....

    I do not expect any "courtesy" when I show my creds, nor should you. If it is given, that's a choice the officer makes, but should never be expected, nor IMO, asked for.
    I agree absolutely. I would prefer that the officer, if he/she is so inclined to give me a break, does so because he/she felt as though I deserved it or simply because he/she was feeling generous ... not because I had a concealed carry permit. It's favoritism of the worst kind.

    I heard about this from a Boulder county LEO.

    The Sheriffs in three different counties, Boulder, Weld & Larimer, have revoked the CHLs of motorists for really excessive speed limit violations (20 mph or more). The worst example was a guy in Boulder county doing 65 in a 25; it was a school zone too. The sheriff, a pro 2A, pro CCW LEO, felt that such a blatant violation showed that the motorist had no regard for the the law & hence was not mature enough to carry a concealed handgun. I don't know whether the motorist challenged the sheriff's decision.

    There is no state law regarding speeding & CHLs; I just think it was the particular sheriff's own judgment.

    In my experence the LEO will have me keep my hands on the wheel or dash while he is talking to me. Well, this only happened once since I try not to speed. It was just for his safty and I dont have a problem with it. He did ask where my gun was and I told him it was on my hip. He probably just did that cause I am a scarry looking fellow or something...

    Some of the comments from LEOs make me chuckle. Around here they are some of the worst offenders for not stopping, not using turn signals, yapping on their cell phones and yes speeding. I really don't care if they do it, just don't be a hypocrite and give me a ticket for doing the same thing. The laws apply to you too.

    And 20mph over in many instances is perfectly safe, most of the speed limits are ridiculously low and arbitrary; written 40 years ago before better roads, stability control, ABS, HID/halogen headlights, airbags and dozens of other advances.

    I haven't been pulled over since getting the permit -- hope I have an experience like your's when the inevitable comes...
    It is utterly illogical to believe that passing laws to reduce gun violence will be successful when those who are commiting the gun violence do not obey the law.

    I informed him that I had a permit and that my handgun was in the driver's side door map pocket (not the best place, but I hadn't gotten a real carry rig yet). I can't stand driving distance with my wallet in my pocket... it makes my butt fall asleep... so it was on the floor by the door. I told him that and opened the door to get my wallet and showed him where my Kahr was stashed. He took my license and CCP and returned a bit later with the ticket. The handgun was never an issue. Very polite and professional
    Was that UHP? There are some great hills on I-15 in Central Utah aren't there.

    That's funny. My wife used to work in the ER and as long as she was wearing her hospital ID she NEVER got a ticket. Maybe I need a new career in healthcare?

    I've never given anyone grief about having a legal firearm. Well, I might rib 'em for having it in the console or glove compartment and not where they can get to it quickly. That usually freaked them out.

    A friend o'mine used to run a gunshop locally. He was a class 3 dealer so he had all the good toys. I agreed to ride with him one day to meet with a suppressor designer he wanted to distribute for. We were also going to drop by a gun-show in ... Montgomery, I think? Anyway, Mr. Leadfoot gets us pulled over by an AL State Trooper. Trooper does the passenger-side approach. My friend's truck had big magnetic signs on both front doors of his truck with his gunshop name and all. I was in the passenger seat, right ankle propped on left knee. I knew what the trooper was going to ask and dreaded the response.
    Trooper asks "Are there any weapons in this vehicle?"
    My friend responds, with a glace at me and a heavy sigh: "I have a .40 Glock on my right hip and a .32 in my pocket; there are three M16s in the back, two with suppressors."
    I chime in: "I have a .45 on my left hip, a 9mm Glock on my right ankle ... oh, and there's a suppressed Beretta 9mm in a case by my foot.
    The trooper sneered and was actually mouthing "Smart A--es" when his light hit upon the case by my foot (partially opened, butt of the pistol visible), the three M16s in the back seat ...
    I quickly added, "I'm law enforcement," as I opened my badge wallet I'd taken out when he got behind us, anticipating this moment. I pointed to Mr. Leadfoot and said, "He's NOT!"
    Leadfoot: "Gee, THANKS! [mutter, mutter]" He had his paperwork with him, of course, so he was able to show all was legal.
    We all had a good laugh about it. The trooper wrote him a warning. Seems our little run-in, as amusing as it was, removed any complacency he might have had.

    Don't let the RN behind my name fool you.

    Yes, I followed a gal in to Nursing Class trying to get a date. I left with a degree and a wife too. However, you may want to reassess what I do for a living, as I don't do much nursing.

    I carry creds and a gun and have arrest powers. The RN behind my name is real and I even sat for the NCLEX. It's just that sometimes what one does for a living isn't what they went to school for.

    I'm still mystified about what the "RN" means in your "forum name".

    I carry creds and a gun and have arrest powers.
    This brought up some issues I've always been unclear about: exactly what is the difference between "citizen's arrest" and the "arrest power" possessed by a sworn LEO?

    I suspect that the difference is primarily about the criteria that make the two types of arrests lawfully justified. And I also suspect that what the law says about citizen's arrest probably varies from state to state.

    Anyone know anything about these issues?

    I wish. I know many of the UHP that patrol the central region. This was a Beaver County deputy... he pulled me over just a few miles north of Beaver.

    Ain't that so!

    I'm a LEO AND a respiratory therapist. When I'm working in the hospital I carry my ID and a gun, when I'm on patrol I'll occasionally offer health and smoking cessation advice to my "customers".
