So we have plenty of "LEO Encounter" threads on the forum, I figured I'll put a twist on it.
I was working my regular shift and responded to a minor traffic collision in the parking lot of one of our local big name out door box stores. One pickup had been backing into a parking stall, and in the stall right next to it a truck had been backing out. I asked the two drivers if any one was hurt, and then for license and insurance. Driver A handed me his license, insurance and CCW permit. He stated that he was carrying at the time. Driver A was probably 40-50 6' 220# or so, (im not so big...:-) )I asked him what he was carrying, and he stated that it was a 1911. After the other driver was issued his citation and Driver A got his paper work back I asked him what kind of 1911, he told me it was a Colt, but was extensively modified... I had to restrain myself from asking ot take a look at it! At any rate, I thanked him for letting me know he was carrying, and told him I wish more people took thier safety as seriously as he did. He said thanks and went on his way. He was even nice enough to tell me that it didn't look like my trunk was shut all the way (I have an old beat up patrol car... sometimes it takes a little extra force to close it!)
I love Alaska!
