I've been hearing of some of your great LEO experiences, so I wanted to share my great experience yesterday.
I was driving down NE 8th Street in Bellevue, WA, legally armed with my SW1911PD in a C5 Montana XLT holster in the 4-oclock position. A Bellevue police car was driving in the opposite direction. I was going the speed limit and I wasn't breaking traffic laws. The police officer didn't even notice me and continued driving. I arrived at my destination without incident.
I have been having these great experiences with LEOs for over 20 years.
A traffic ticket is formal recognition of a lapse in situational awareness.

That's about as lucky as you can get. Not even a warning.

That's the same kind of story I tell my co-workers when they all complain about speed traps!
Thanks, I needed a good laugh.
If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!
Train hard, live easy.
That was so low under the Radar not even a blip show up.
Sounds like the Bellevue cops are slipping up...

Wrong,Wrong,Wrong, they were on to you, I heard them on the police scanner, problem was they had a code red call they were heading to, but trust me, YOU ARE ON THEIR RADAR.
Watch your self.

Don't kid yourself...they saw you...they just didn't let on that they saw you. You can bet even now as you read this, the details of this incident are being placed in your file at headquarters.
Consider yourself lucky this time...PM me if you need a safe place far...far away to send your gun for safekeeping until the heat is off.
