    Traffic Stop...

    So Sunday afternoon I am cruising along a back country road and realize I am speeding and LEO is coming in the other direction. Tap the breaks but it's too late , he turns around and lights me up. I pull over and the following exchange takes place.

    LEO: I pulled you over for doing 75 in a 55mph zone.
    Me: Yes sir (as I hand him my DL and CCP. I don't have to in AL but did as a courtesy).
    LEO: Do you have proof of insurance?
    Me: Yes sir. (as I search for and hand him my insurance card)
    LEO: Sit tight (as he hands me my insurance card and CCP)

    The LEO fills out my ticket, returns to the car, hands me my license and explains procedure for paying/contesting ticket.

    LEO: Slow it down ok.
    Me: Yes sir.

    He never batted an eyelash or asked about the CCP. In my opinion that's the way it should be. He was very professional and no-nonsense.

    Kinda pissed that I got a ticket, but that's my fault not his.

    Glad you had a good experience.

    The same thing happened to me last summer. I gave to LEO my CHL and my other required documents, and he even started asking me about what type of pistol do I carry. For a second I thought I was going to get out of the ticket because of our great conversation, but he came back with a ticket anyways.

    I was hoping my offering up the CCP would help get me out of the tix also, but to no avail! haha

    For those of you that have a Concealed Weapons Permit, or whatever it's called in your area, it's not a "Get Out of Jail Free" Card.

    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. The only reason I show my creds is because I'm also carrying firearms, and I don't want any officer to be alarmed that I have a gun or three on me.

    This stop went the way they should all go, IMHO. Now slow it down and obey the laws of the road.

    sometimes it works, but going 20 mph over speed limit will always get a ticket from me.

    75 in a 55; that's not accidental.

    Here in Colo, I know of some counties where you would get your CCW revoked for such a blatant disregard of the speed limit.

    At 20 over......I'd write the citation too, even if I was interested enough to ask what you carry.

    In Missouri, we are not required to declare, but............


    Last December, I was pulled over for 38 in a 25 mph zone. I gave the LEO my license, but not the MO ID with the CCW endorsement ( it still shows up when he runs my drivers license ). He came back with the statement "You're not the kind of person we are after". Did the CCW endorsement cause that? I'd like to think so. He let me off with a warning, and let me go on my way. All told, it was a pleasant experience, and he was very professional. Just the way it should be.

    I'm sorry you ended up with a ticket, but it sure seems like most LEO's are getting more and more supportive of us.

    Good interaction. I don't think too many folks will look the other way on 20 over.

    Good to hear the experience was positive, other than the speeding violation.

    You did the courteous thing by presenting your permit and he responded the right way. Unfortunately, not all officers are going to do that. The only course of action is to comply with the officer's wishes at all times.

    I got pulled over recently for the first time in years, and the first time since getting my CCP. I had my foot into it a little going up a long hill and really didn't notice when I crested the hill and started down. I rarely ever go more than ~9 over, but I got clocked at +14 (79 in a 65).

    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

    Although I am NOT an RN, nor do I play one on TV, I just assumed that RN's always avoided a ticket once they produced their hospital ID to the officer.


    Professional courtesty, and the fear that one day the officer just might meet that RN while injured.

    Glad to hear that CCW'er was treated fairly.
