At home while reloading... My neighborhood has had a few break ins lately, and around 2315 a neighbors car alarm started going off. I called it in to the non-emergency number, grabbed my S&W 6906 out of the safe, and went back to the garage to load a few rounds for it. I did not request to make contact with the officer, but after he drove through the area looking for a few, he popped in anyway. I introduced myself, shook hands, talked about the alarm and break ins, and he then noticed my reloading bench. I invited him in to check it out and loaded a round while he watched since he mentioned his interest. Before he left I extended another invitation to stop in anytime the garage door was open as I was probably out there loading ammo. Never occurred to me to notify him I was carrying concealed, but we're not required so no law broken. I had figured I would on an official contact as a courtesy, but didn't. Still don't know the cause of the alarm or who has been breaking in to houses / cars / sheds up here, but we've at least got a little more face time with the police dept up here (we live on top of a hill, one way in / one way out).
