i had only been carrying for about 4 days and i get pulled over so i was kinda nervous about having a gun on me.
we were going to my parents wednesday night driving my wifes car.
we get to the little town for the turn off to go to my parents fixing to exit the highway when this cop comes flying up behind us for some reason. i wasn't speeding or anything so i was confused when he turns on his lights to pull me over.
i get stopped and get my drivers license, handgun permit, and insurance card out to hand them to him when he gets to the window. he asked for my info and i hand him my info and he looks at all 3 for a few seconds each. he looked at me and told me that my insurance card had expired the day before but it was ok just get me a new one. my wife then tells him she has the new one she had just giving him the old one.
while she was looking for the new one he informed me he had pulled me over because her license plate light was out. she handed him the new one, he looked it over for a second, handed me back all of my cards and told me to have a nice night and get my light fixed. i said thank you and we would get it fixed. he turned around and went back to his car and drove off.
he never mentioned anything about my permit, if i had a handgun or where it was. just told me to have a nice night and was gone. i was very happy that it was so uneventful.
i would like to think that the CHL made him think that i was a responsable person that did have insurance but just didn't have the new card with me that's why he was going to let me off with (kinda of) a warning.
