    I wont mention the town/department but I had a pleasant experience with a smallish, somewhat rural city police officer this morning. I have a slightly tinted license plate cover on the rear that I just havent taken the 60 seconds to remove it (counts as an obstruction even though the plate is clearly visible). That was PC for the stop.

    I gave the officer my DL and CHL to which he asked if I was carrying. I said yes, concealed in the car but not on my person. He asked me to step out (no problem), did a quick pat down and gave me a warning all the while shooting the perverbial stinky stuff for a minute.

    Just another satisfied customer LOL

    I don't know how I would feel about another dude patting me down. You should have requested a female officer. Preferably a hot one.

    ALL of my experiences with police officers (over a period of 55 years of driving) have been positive. Maybe I grew up in nice places or maybe I just said the right things, not sure. I never got a traffic citation I didn't deserve and got "let off" several times when I did deserve one. Last one was at least 24 yrs. ago.

    Damn, you are old. Also, ditto on all counts in the quote for me as well.

    The pat down part was stupid... You are a CHL holder (one of the most law abiding groups in the state) and you already stated you had a firearm with you. There was no reason for that.
