    Did a ride along

    Well, I found a local PD that was willing on short notice to let me do a ride along with one of their officers (who most of you know), it seemed like it should be fun. Unfortunately it was a slow night around Cincinnati with not too much going on. However there was a Krispy Kreme truck that had it's tail light out, so they got a warning about that, and a brand now driver running stop signs who used the old water works trick. But overall I had a good time, got to learn a lot about how police officers act while on the road and stuff.

    Ride alongs are fun sometimes, entertaining most of the time, scary more often than they should be, uneventful a lot, but educational ALL the time.

    Glad it was a good night overall.


    did they let you carry or did you ask?

    I was allowed to carry everywhere that I am legally allowed to, so government buildings and such are out. But the officer is extremely pro-gun, so he was cool with carrying.

    People can throw his name out there if they figure it out, I don't think he will mind, I just didn't want to see him laughed off the site for stoppin the krispy kreme truck.

    I don't think his PD had the rank of Lord, but maybe.

    Only the classified parts, don't worry the beam on his hi-point is way off, and it always jams.

    You know, I actually heard a guy ask for a "beam" the other day at the local store.

    I think that's a clue that it's time to move.
