Read some of the posts made after you said that and see if you can come up with the correct answer! [smilie=cheers1.gif]

See my prior post.

Your 7 posts, 5 of which are in this thread, don't give you the leeway to make certain types of comments to any of the members here. Use discretion.
I'm glad you've got it clearded up.

I don't know how many post you need before you've got leeway..., I'm just meeting force with force...

FYI... I orignaly posted this thread under the topic Pistol & Revolvers and it was moved here. This thread was intended to for people to post their encounters with LEOs while carrying but turned into a heated debate. I hoped that others would post some stories shocking, funny or otherwise. I even would like to hear what some of the LEOs encountered. I thought the topic might be fruitfull and I hope you or someboby else will repost the same question again soon.

Now, let's smoke the peace pipe and move on..., what do you say? [smilie=cheers1.gif]

As long as it isn't one of those funny looking pipes, Moe will take a toke. NC on the other hand actually prefers the funny looking ones. [smilie=pdt_xtremez_23.gif]

I had no idea they were still using my cast impression to make those pipes. They owe me some royalties damnit.

I commonly carry 'under my leg' while driving and only carrying my Kel-Tec (can't get into my pocket while sitting). Just make sure if you are asked to get out of your vehicle you let the officer know. Once you get up, you are no longer concealed #-o.

Oh, and grats to Moe on this one. He was incorrect and admited it when he was corrected. I guess that means I have to pick up the next round :ber [smilie=011.gif].

I was wondering about that ! So there is a note popping up when they run your tag ??
The last 4 times I got pulled over 3 of the LEO's asked me if I have a firearm in the car. The one that didn't ask was a rooky I believe, she was very young and had an older LEO sitting in as passenger. I did not feel the need to tell her.
