    Talking How-to: Disarming a Deputy Sheriff with a Glock

    11:41 PM... I just noticed I'm outta beer, and the cut-off time is midnite in my backwards little county, so I gotta get down the road if I'm gonna have a cold one tonite. So I head to the gas station, and in the parking lot are 5 Sheriff's cruisers... 2 Deputies are talking outside their cars, 3 are in their cars.

    I go into the store and surprise, Icehouse longnecks are on sale, cheaper than Bud! I grab two 12-packs and head quickly for the counter. The clerk rings me up, and I absently stuck my debit card in my shirt pocket. I take my beer out to the car, stick it on the passenger seat, and think, "put your card back in your wallet..." I glance over at the cops and at least one of them is eyeballing me, so I just tossed my wallet on the seat next to the beer and go get in the driver's side.

    I pull out (after a full stop and signal) and my wallet slides off the seat. This is a very irritating feature of my wife's car; when you take a left turn, wallets, cell phones, sunglasses, MP3 players, and other such items tend to slide off the seat, fall between the door and the seat, and end up deep under it. And you just CAN'T reach whatever it is from the driver's side; I've tried a hundred times. You have to pull over, get out, and get it from the passenger side.

    So I am heading down the road, watching my rear view, and yep... here he comes... no lights on and flying after me. He gets about 5 car lengths behind me and hits the rollers (I guess they are LED strobes nowadays)... I pull into a Ponderosa parking lot, and a second Deputy pulls in behind us. I fish my wife's registration out of the glove box, roll down the window, kill the motor, turn on the flashers, then put my hands on the wheel to wait for him.

    Both officers approach the car, the second Deputy staying back behind the car. Deputy #1 asks for my license, registration, and insurance. I hand him my wife's registration and tell him that my wallet is under the passenger seat, and I will have to get out of the car to get it. He shines his MagLite on the case of beer on my seat and says, "Have ya been drinking tonight?" I answer honestly and cheerfully, "No, not yet". He tells me to go ahead and step out.

    Deputy #1 has his gun side turned away from me, but I can see Deputy #2's pistol... definitely a Glock. I'm carrying my Taurus 745 in my SmartCarry outside my pants, but they didn't ask, so I didn't tell.

    I go over to the passenger door, and these Deputies seem tense... they are both in their late 20's/early 30's, and both really big and burly... they look like they spend 2 hours a day in the gym. So I intentionally move really slowly... I'm sure a cop is wary about anything that comes from under a car seat. Deputy #1's right shoulder is a little hunched as he watches me, and his hand is hovering near his gun in that "relaxed but ready to draw" pose that you always see right before a Dodge City gunfight in a western movie. Deputy #2 is watching me very closely, too. I make a point of saying "here it is" and make sure they see my wallet in my hand in the car before I turn around... like I said, they seemed really tense.

    I fish my license out and Deputy #1 says, "Gimme just a minute, OK?" I say, "No problem, Sir... take your time..." and start to go back to the driver's side. He says, "No, how about you stand back here behind the car for me...?"

    To which I reply, "No problem, Officer... whatever you like. Just want to help everybody relax.... I am way too old to out-run or out-wrestle you two guys..."

    It must have been the delivery, because Deputy #2 busts out laughing. I didn't think it was all that funny, but Deputy #1 is laughing too, and everybody seems to relax... I say, "Hey... I've seen that COPS show on TV... I know how that goes every time. You can kill that dash cam and save your video tape, cuz this is gonna be one boring-ass traffic stop... "

    Deputy #2 is laughing his butt off... he seems to think this is the funniest stand-up act he's seen in a long time. Deputy #1 heads back to his cruiser to run my papers.

    Remember when you were a kid and Bobby made you have a laughing fit that you just can't control, and you know that if you so much as look at him, you will bust out laughing again? That's exactly what I did to this cop. Every time he looks at me, he starts cracking up again... he composes himself and looks away from me. I coulda suckerpunched him in the ear and he would never see it coming... he looks at me again, and immediately, he loses it again... he's on the verge of tears and wiping the corners of his eyes. And because he's laughing, I can't help but laugh right along with him.

    He inhales deeply and composes himself with a long "Whooooooooo..." We both get about a 30 second break from our laughter.

    He looks at me and I slowly raise my hands to shoulder level and say, "Don't taze me, bro..."

    That's it. Any composure Deputy #2 might have mustered has now been completely obliterated... he is laughing like a stoner seeing Cheech and Chong for the first time, and not even bothering to try to maintain any professional decorum. A minute or two later, Deputy #1 returns with my license and he's grinning at Deputy #2, who now might as well punch out and go home, because he's been completely disarmed and neutralized.

    No problems with my papers or my beer; the issue was that one of my tail lights was out, and after popping the trunk and wiggling the connection, it came back on. Deputy #1, who initially seemed quite tense is now smiling, and he wishes me a good night... Deputy #2 actually extends his hand to shake mine and says "Thanks...", then walks back to his car, still laughing...

    All in all, a good LEO interaction, I would say...
    "Who is to say that I am not an instrument of karma? Indeed, who is to say that I am not the very hand of God himself, dispatched by the Almighty to smite the Philistines and hypocrites, to lay low the dishonest and corrupt, and to bust the jawbone of some jackass that so desperately deserves it?"

    Absolutely priceless. Glad it all went well. Not sure I'm looking forward to my next traffic stop, but if and when it does happen, I'd hope it to go down like yours did.

    You know, I don't know if it is me or if it's the LEOs here in my area, but ALL of the ones I have had to deal with, which haven't been may, have all been really courteous and friendly here. I know people that say otherwise, but every experience I have had has been great, even helpful.

    I had to take my youngest to the ER for stomach pain at 10 pm and I had to drive my Suburban which had a headlight out and expired reg, prolly at least a few months. Of course I got stopped but the Highway Patrolman, after listening to me and quickly running my paperwork, told me to fix the light and get the truck reg'd. He then asked if I needed an escort and when I said I didn't he told me he would call ahead to the hospital and also radioed in to the local pd and highway patrol about my truck and that I was okay to go.

    I dunno, but all of the PD/HP I have talked with or dealt with have been a bunch of great guys! I have had a couple of situations in California that were blown out of proportion, but even down there I have had very little bad.

    I find it to be much more fun and rewarding to be friendly than to bust ba**s.

    As an aside, a LEO's on duty hyper-vigilance should never be considered as a fault.

    They never knew of your weapon?

    Retsupt sez...

    They never knew of your weapon?

    Ya know, as I think about this experience last night and today, 2 things really spring to mind... first, I was wearing red shorts, a tan Hawaiian print shirt with brown palm trees on it, and flip-flops. I was wearing my SmartCarry outside the pants, mostly covered by my untucked shirt. This particular shirt is a little shorter than others I have, and it left about 2 inches of the SmartCarry exposed. The dark blue denim stands out pretty clearly against the red and tan... the parking lot was lit, the headlites and rollers on their cars were on, and they both had flashlights on me, so they HAD to see it...

    That leaves two possibilities; either they saw the SmartCarry, recognized it as a holster, and didn't care, or they saw the SmartCarry and assumed it was some sorta fanny-pack/pouch. In either case, I believe that this encounter demonstrates that this method of carry passes the "concealed means concealed" test...

    The second thing that came to me was even though I was joshing in the title about "disarming" a Deputy, the fact is that I made him completely drop his guard. Like I said, he actually turned his head away from me to try to stop laughing... If I were a dirtbag like Hank Carr (remember that animal, Ret?), I completely had the drop on this officer. If I were a criminal inclined to do violence to an officer, that Taurus coulda been pulled really fast... both of these officers would be dead and there would be a state-wide BOLO for me today...

    I dunno... maybe when you have been a cop for a while, you get good at reading people and they decided (correctly) that I was not a threat, and they let their guard down...

    LEOs are like the rest of us. They're just regular guys doing a difficult, sometimes tedious, often dangerous job. There are very few circumstances in ALL our lives when happening upon a cool head with a sense of humor isn't a welcome & refreshing change of pace. True, a smart, socially-skilled psychopath can/will use that knowledge as a highly effective distraction. But if you're dealing with a truly smart, truly skilled psychopath...you're WAYYY behind the curve already. Nice story, well done, well told.

    Good story PnC. But I'm afraid to tell you that they were more than likely laughing at your outfit than your comments

    What? Isn't that the universally-approved uniform for beer drinking? Well, it is for me!
