Last night my daughter and I were doing a little shopping in WW and on the way home we were talking and laughing, when I looked down and saw I was going about 50 mph in a 40mph zone with that verbal Oh Dang! As I was slowing down I looked in the rear-view and the blue lights were flashing(Idaho Falls finest). So because of this forum I decided to hand him my Lic. & CWL even though it's not required in Idaho. Then he ask for my registration and insurance which I provided, he handed them back with my CWL and said let me run this(Lic.) and I'll be right back. He came back and handed me my Lic. and said drive careful, I said thank you and that was it. Never once did he ask me about my gun and I didn't get a ticket. Reminds me of when I was with an LEO friend and he flashed his badge and got out of a speeding ticket. What a great way to end the year.:bier:

Sounds like an uneventful stop. Obviously we all know that the CCW is not a "get out of ticket free card," but I am glad that he just checked you out and bid you adieu.
Yeah I know, humm........maybe my good looks. :rofl:

Sounds like you did the right thing, ... except for watching your speed in the first place!

That sounds like a more than reasonable traffic stop. He's out there, looking for a chance to run people, and when he find's out that you're an all around good guy (and not the droids he was looking for), he tells you to drive a bit more carefully, and sends you on your way. I'm sure you will. It's almost like a win/win.

p.s. Around here, 10 over in a 40 m.p.h. zone probably won't be used to initiate a traffic stop.

Good stop. Now use that traffic ticket money that you saved to buy more ammo:)

A ticket is neither good or bad...if we deserve, so be it. I just dislike hearing about the cop who has to get the gun...unload it (for your safety and his :bs2:), and then put it in your trunk.
This guy was confident and realistic...glad you didn't get the ticket, too!:hand10:

Good deal, congrats on doing things right. I paid off for you.

I made about 20 traffic stops tonight, and ran into 3 permits holders. I got to say that the permit holders were all much more in tune with what needed to be done and why I was doing what I was doing. That just makes my job a lot easier, and I'll typically respond positively to that, but not simply the fact you have a permit.
