I went in (CC) to purchase some range ammo for a late afternoon session (a Father's Day gift)...and the thought crossed my mind about a majority of people getting on board with carrying, either CC or OC...I wondered (with my indoor voice) if that would ever happen???
Because I don't want to go through "the eye" from anyone, that's why I CC (unless I have to OC by law)...

Should have started using the conduit as a "spyglass" and talking in your "pirate" voice.
or follow the advice the police give, if you think someone is following you, make 4 right turns and if they're still behind you call 911.
Seriously though cops are people and they are curious and you were the one who stood out in the crowd and added a little variety to their day. The fact is they didn't make contact with you so they know the law and followed it. Although you probably got your tags ran to make sure your truck wasn't stolen.

What I would like to do is walk up to him in his vehicle and kindly ask him to tell me why he is following me in such a suspicious manner, and suggest that he go look for some real criminals. However, I don't think this is a good thing to do either, because if he already thinks I'm suspicious then he might be "threatened" by a man approach him OC'ing a gun and yell at me to put my hands up and point a gun at me or something, and that wouldn't be very pleasant for me.
But what you could do is simply pull out your cell phone and call the police. Tell them you are scared because there is a police car following you around very suspiciously and you are scared because you didn't do anything and you wanted to check that it was a real cop. Hahaha
