I was pulled over by a UHP several years ago. It was during the hunting season so for me that means the shotgun is with me all the time. That was the first thing he noticed in the extra cab in a soft case. He asked me if it was loaded while I was producing my license and my CFP. I told him it was legally loaded and handed him my CFP. He asked if there were other firearms so I declared my 9 MM in my waistband. He asked if it was loaded and I said yes. He asked if there was one in the chamber and I said yes. Poor kid was really freaked out at this point and walked back to his cruiser where he spent several minutes. When he returned he proceeded to tell me that only a LEO could carry a fully loaded firearm and he was letting me off the hook. It was all I could do not to laugh and I really wanted to clue him in but my judgement led me to say thank you and let him figure it out on his own.

On the other hand, every other time I have been pulled over I felt that my permit had a positive effect on the situation.

Perhaps we should get some money together and do a "public service announcement" regarding carrying (open and concealed). :lol:

Like I keep reiterating, it sure is sad that there are LEOs out there with obvious misperceptions of the laws they are trying to enforce. And, I sure am grateful that there are some LEOs (especially the ones on this site) that DO know the law (especially regarding firearms). Granted I don't expect a LEO to be an expert on the law, but basic understanding sure would be nice :D Oh, and restraint from telling citizens wrong information :ROFL:

Hopefully this young buck will see the light :copcar:

Nice story. Hopefully its not anyone I know lol. This is why I always love to give an open/concealed carry presentation in my criminal justice classes. Thanks for sharing and I'm glad it turned out ok.

I am not a teacher. I am a criminal justice student at UVU. Many of my classes require a presentation and generally we get to pic the topic. So I chose my favorite one and the one I know most about. Makes presenting easier.

What type of marketing? In my business, I do quite a bit of it myself, and take great interest in effective marketing methods. Can I help out in this regard? I would love to be a part of educating a large body of people, even one that included LEO's. I believe strongly that any business or practice is benefited by education of the target market. In this case, we want as many people as possible to know the safety and laws of firearm ownership. I see it as a great chance to educate the public, (as many of you are already doing).

Again, consider this my hat being thrown in the ring.
