    I wonder how hard it is for that guy to pull someone over from a Segway...

    Interesting perspective the officer has on concealed carry. It goes against basic firearms safety rules to handle it the way he does though.

    And in the 16 years I've legally carried here in Texas I've been pulled over at least 10 times and never once has the cop asked to even see the handgun.

    There are still LEO out there that don't like the public carrying. Only they are professional enough.

    Author is in the wrong profession.

    He is obviously too scared to be a cop. That's a dangerous mix.

    I think that the guy is entitled to his opinion. We all have them. But to allow your opinion to effect how you apply the law, policy, and basic safety practices is the concerning issue to me.

    Although I live in Mass, I've never been pulled over while carrying here. It has happened twice in Vermont, however. Both times the trooper asked if I was carrying. When I said I was, they asked what and where. Once it was IWB, and the other time in my truck's console. Neither trooper ever asked to see it; they simply asked that I leave it where it was for the remainder of the stop. They both handled it like total professionals.

    Exactly. A guy that is determined to shoot is going to shoot regardless. Maybe this individual wants to give the officer a false sense of security by making them believe they are unarmed, when in fact they have a BUG. I could see that being an even bigger problem than if the officer was on high alert the entire time, like they should be.

    In my career I have had contact with many who were carrying and the only times I took the gun is if we were dealing with more than a traffic stop. Off the top of my head I can recall a few DUI's, a few domestics and a couple of hit and runs. I normally just tell them to leave it where it is.

    A holstered gun doesn't go bang.

    An unholstered gun, being unloaded and loaded, can go bang during that process.

    "Officer safety" now that's oxyMORONic.

    Never inform unless required by law.

    TBO seldom gives opinions.

    It's his rhetorical tool to help stir up controversy while trying to remain 'blameless' for the fall out of his posts.

    Not sure why you would EVER post something like that. He has always posted from a position of absolute sincerity, guilelessness and frank discourse.

    No subterfuge, it was one man's opinion.

    Opinions are like.... Everybody got one...

    If that's not enough, I believe that persons blurb was more than a bit over the top.

    I've been around here more than long enough for the regs to know my thoughts on these type of ever repeating subjects.

    It's the reg haters that try to make an issue of things I do, or don't say.
    Haters gonna hate :tbo:

    This is my rifle
    This is my gun
    One is for killing
    The others for fun

    The idea of a cop freaking out over a CHLer's gun during a traffic stop is irrisputably ubsurd.

    I took the liberty of speaking from his perspective, for him. Iz I allowed to do that?

    Me? I could be agreeing with you one minit, the next, I might be schooling you on the meaning of desecration. :whistling: :tbo: :whistling:
