    I was cought up in a disturbance :rolleyes:, and my gun and knife were confiscated as standard procedure. I get to pick them up tomorrow though. What struck me as funny was the sight of 12 cops huddled around my PPS for like 15 minutes. finally they come over to me with it and ask, "where is the mag release???" they couldn't take the mag out. lolz. i had to tell them it was a latch on the underside of my trigger guard. i told them i think its a german ambidextrous system, and he said, cool thanks. shuts the cruiser and i hear him say, hey guy's it's a walther! Not sure why they didn't pick up on that before but that was some funny stuff. cuffed in the back of a cruiser, not so funny. :eek:

    ps i didnt do anything wrong. well, not much anyway.

    OMG!

    Talk about a double edged sword!
    Hope everything turns out OK...

    I watched an episode of a cops-like show and had to shut it off after the third time the officer referred to a SKS as a "dangerous automatic AK"

    Wow...
    I was talking to an officer one day about the rifles I've owned. I mentioned an sks and he asked what that was. After I told him he looked horrified and asked, "Why would you need that!?"

    Hope everything turns out okay. At least you impressed them with your "exotic" firearm.

    Why do people assume that all cops are gun people? Are all gun people cops?

    "Why do people assume that all cops are gun people? Are all gun people cops?"

    That's a good point. My father is a retired LEO and he is definitely NOT a gun guy. He loved the two duty guns he carried during his career, but he no longer has anything to do with guns except for a shotgun I gave him for home defense. On the other hand, I know several local LEO's who are gun guys. Some will talk guns with anyone. Some like guns but don't seem comfortable talking about them with non-LEO's.

    yeh he asked me why i carry all this over and over. i just said to exercise my second amendment rights. his response was "oh, you're one of those guys, huh?

    But all in all the cops were fair with me. restored a little respect for law enforcement, despite taking my piece, cold steel safe maker II, sheaths, mags, and bullets. But I get them back tomorrow. doubt ill see the bullets though. just a preminition.

    I hope to someday "get the business" from the current crop of cops. As noted, not many are into guns, and many regard CC people with disdain. If I'm ever asked, "Why do you need to carry a gun?" by a cop, I'm going to reply, "Because most cops can't shoot for spit, I can outshoot most cops, and I feel better protecting myself", with hopes that someday I'll meet the the one cop that DOES shoot, and he's up for a little friendly competition. All the others will probably just think I'm the smartass that I am, but wonder and worry if I'm telling the truth..........

    I carry because my LCP is lighter than a police officer.

    I'm a gun nut yet I assume NOTHING about anyone else's knowledge of firearms.
    Assumption is the mother of all foul ups.

    That being said, I would think that anyone with even the most basic of firearms training should know the design of firearms actions and how they work. I firmly believe that police officers should have more training in how to "make safe" any type of firearm they might encounter. I recall the LEO who was recovering a shotgun as evidence and decided to pick up said firearm with one finger in the muzzle and the other in the trigger guard. There's a video of how that turned out that will make anybody cringe.

    The officer I refer to in my previous post seemed to have gotten her information about firearms directly from Hollywood.

    It was an SKS but it had the detachable bananna mag and because it fires the same ammo as an AK, I think she may have just gotten things confused.
    Still, after the third time she called what has NEVER been a full auto weapon by the name of a full auto design, and continued to assume that what she had in her hands was a fully automatic AK-47, I just needed to shut it off before I started yelling :cuss: at the TV:evil:

    The fact that the last thread that you started on the topic was closed was A CLUE that the story is not on topic for THR.
