Heading home from visiting family (and ending up watching the USC game last night), my wife and I ran into a license check on hwy 34 @ I-77. I turning on the interior light, put my hands where they were easily visible and looked the officer in the eye "I have to inform you that I have a CWP and have a weapon on me."
<Blink> "...Where is it in the vehicle?"
"One on my right hip, and two in luggage in the back of the car."
<Blinkblink> "Well, I figure since you tole me about it, you don't plan on hurting me, go ahead and get your ID."
I told him that my ID was in my back right pocket, retrieved it slowly and everything went smoothly. I wish I'd thought to get the officer's name so I could call and tell his supervisor that he was very professional and courteous, but I didn't.
Just wanted to share that I had a good encounter with a SC State Trooper, even regarding my CWP. See, there are 'good cops' out there.
