    Really interesting OC/LEO encounter at Subway...

    We had a doctor appointment this morning for our son at Riley's Children's Hospital in Indianapolis. After we were done we were headed home and my wife and son and I all were a little hungry and we decided to stop at our son's favorite place to eat, Subway. We stopped at one in Plainfield Indiana.

    As we pulled into the lot, I noticed what I thought to be a larger number, 6 or more, of police cars in the lot and figured the Plainfield PD must be having lunch the same time we were.

    As we walked in, I saw 3 uniformed police officers and a whole bunch of cadets from the local police academy there all having lunch. I had on jeans and a mustard colored T-shirt, with my Glock 23 on OC on my right hip in a Blackhawk SERPA with a spare mag on my left hip. It was VERY apparent that all of them saw my openly carried gun as we walked in so I wasn't sure what to expect.

    As we walked through the place to get to the end of the line, one of the uniformed officers, kind of young guy, asked me if I thought I really needed that in there obviously eluding to the fact that it was like a cop convention in there at the moment. I simply asked him if he and his friends were going to hang around until we were done eating and then escort us to our car to make sure were were safe. His two fellow officers kind of laughed at that and the guy who asked the question just told me to lighten up that he was just kidding and that it was pretty apparent that I was one of the good guys.

    In addition to the cadets, a couple of the instructors were there with them. One was armed with a Glock 22 in a SERPA just like mine and he came over as were sitting down and complimented me on my choice of holster and gun and pointed it out to the cadets and said to take note and to remember this because they would come into contact with armed civilians in their time on the street. He then told me thanks for the teaching opportunity.

    All in all a very good experience with one of the local PD's.

    Sounds like a good encounter with savvy cops.

    Nicely done and let's hope that is a class of cadets that will now be comfortable with this type of encounter. No reason to be alarmed just because of OC. A crazy would never do such a thing anyhow.

    It's not a problem til they make it one!

    I encounter local LEO, ranging from veterans to rookies, every morning at the neighborhood WAWA store. I'm always OC'ing and the only comment I've every had was to be asked what make 1911 I was carrying. When I told him a Dan Wesson CBOB his comment was "damn I wish I could afford one of those!"

    The Philly cops could take a lesson from these fine officers.

    I'm hoping that after I get my LTCH, whenever I choose to OC (will mostly CC) I won't have too hard of a time with cops. Hope I'll have encounters like that

    I think it may be the fact that you are always pointing out how where you live isn't as good as Tennessee,but you actually found a positive experience to write about.We all know how much you miss Tennessee

    Smartass!


    Good encounter, at least you didn't say "Yeah I need this because all you guys would probably miss the BG"

    No offense to our LEO members who likely spend a little more time practicing than the average LEO.
