    Heavily edited to protect the identity of both myself and the trooper.

    I should have bolded the word right.

    I'm surprised you even got a ticket. Did he knock some miles off?

    he looked at me like i was going to shoot him for a second there ( he gave me a 60 in a 45 ticket)

    My friend got nailed for 118 in a 65 zone. He had the cruise set at 140 but nailed the brakes when he saw the popo. Yea, he went to jail for that one.

    I had a decent experience with the police whenever I got pulled over. Story time...





    So I'm the president of my Fraternity. Well it was rush week, and I was moving the pledges from dorms to the house for the party. They were blindfolded (luckily not handcuffed or ducttaped). It was taking a while for the other members to get the pledges, so I had my lights turned off, and only parking lights on. Well I drive a jeep grand cherokee so the lights are normally auto on, and auto off. It was also in town, and the street lighting was good enough that I couldn't tell that my lights were off. So I load up the pledges and take off. The point of this exercise is to get them lost, so they don't know where they're going, which leads me to start driving erractily (unknowingly with my lights off, but parking lamps on). Well I come around the corner a little fast, and a cop turned his lights, so I pulled over into a parking lot, instead of on the street(they usually appreciate that). I had the presense of mind to tell the pledges to remove their hoods, and then to act cool. Cop comes up to the window... I explain what i'm doing and when I go to give him my CCW permit(it's on a non-driver's license here in Missouri, but we're not required to notify the officer) he thinks i'm giving him another license, then I have to point out that it's my CCW. They pull one of the pledges out and ask him what's going on. He has no clue. When they did that, one of the officers from the 2nd, yes 2nd squad car, asks where's my firearm, to which i reply, "on my person". He says, ok, just keep your hands on where they're visible. They get me out of the car, and then a different officer asks where it is, yada yada, and then HE pulls it out, and it's my Kel-tec p3at in my front pocket, so that was kinda awkward. They ask if it's loaded, to which I reply yes. They then just run the numbers, and I get a nice little 5 min. lecture about not to mix guns and alcohol at the party, yada yada. They were respectful, and understanding on why exactly my lights were off. They gave me the gun back, all the while it was loaded, and I went on my way.

    Here is where you are wrong. The last thing you want a person doing that you stopped/detained as a leo is touching their weapon. As we all know a holstered firearm is of no danger to anyone. Any movement made twards your weapon weather it be in a threatening manner or not is going to cause alot of uneccessary stress for both you and the officer. I'm sure a few of the leos on the forum will chime in and agree.
