    Drivers License Checkpoint

    This afternoon I got ready to go deer hunting. Got all camo'd out, rifle on the backseat of the truck and concealed weapon on my hip in its supertuck. I left the house and drove about 3/4 mile, rounded the curve and at the stop sign were two highway patrolmen. I pulled up to the one in the middle of the road handed him my DL & CWP. He asked if I had my weapon on me and I replied yes sir. He told me to have a nice day. I then told him that I would buckle my seat belt and he said thanks. I don't know why he didn't ask me about the seat belt...maybe too stunned about me handing him my CWP. Overall a good outcome.

    sounds pretty straight forward. profesional and quick my guess is he wasn't going to waste time writing you a ticket since that's probably not what he's looking for at that checkpoint.

    Good outcome, around here we refer to them as “Revenue Enhancement Stops”.

    I am wondering what would the outcome would have been by a New York State trooper! I posted a thread yesterday if anyone had any stories of being pulled over by NY LEOs.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    Or maybe glad to meet a driver with his stuff together who doesn't give him a load of Barbara Streisand.
    The views expressed above are the opinion of the poster and may or may not be total bunk.
    Viewer discretion is advised.

    Nope I didn't see anything except a couple squirrels. One guy out of 4 of us saw a buck but wasn't able to get a shot off. Maybe better luck next week.

    Good luck. I hate it when I hear something walking on leaves and it ends up being squirrel or chipmink.

    I then told him that I would buckle my seat belt
    You carry a pistol for personal protection, but don't buckle your seat belt?

    Just sayin...

    I agree with an 'above' poster...if you got by the LEO so well, and IF you bagged your deer...go buy a lottery ticket, because it's your lucky day.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    I dont know if I would call having to go thru a "papers, please" checkpoint a "good outcome" but I'm weird that way.

    SCOTUS has upheld the legality of driver license checkpoints along with sobriety checkpoints and immigration checkpoints. I understand the reasoning for the sobriety and immigration checkpoints, but still have trouble understanding how driver license checkpoints are legal.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.
