  1. Got pulled over yesterday; first time while carrying.

    That's a good point about probable cause. I'm going to ask a couple of cop friends and see what they say. It's never been an issue for me but I drive a newer vehicle, look like one of them, do the other things you're supposed to do. My wallet is on the console so all I'd be doing in front of...
  2. carry ammo

    Every 3 mos or so. I also rarely if ever unload my EDC so setback isn't an issue. I have two identical carry guns that I swap out whenever I shoot off my carry ammo so when I leave the range it's with new carry ammo in a clean gun. I will make trips to the range w/ my "off" EDC in between and...

    Next time they have a gun defense rotation at Krav you should come as my guest, it's fun.
  4. Got pulled over yesterday; first time while carrying.

    I would imagine he thinks you're getting your license/reg, particularly if you have them out when he reaches the window and you have the window open, lights on and two hands on the wheel?
  5. Got pulled over yesterday; first time while carrying.

    If you actually practice that move it looks nothing like that, lol.
  6. Got pulled over yesterday; first time while carrying.

    Exactly, not sure why you'd wait for the cop to get to your window before getting license & reg out. Pull over, get your stuff out, turn dome light on if dark, both hands on the wheel.
  7. Looking for a good small revolver

    I shot a friend's SW AirWeight a few weeks ago, never felt a gun bite my hand like that. I have a Ruger LCRx in 38+P, I'm not a huge fan of DAO small revolvers w/ shrouded hammers but I understand why they make them. This is my office back up gun, staged when I'm in the office alone (my EDC is...

    Most self-defense instructors will tell you that you have a better chance w/ gun defense than knife defense. It takes zero skill to repeatedly stab/slash someone and even if you do knife defense 100% correctly you're likely to get stabbed/slashed several times. Gun defense is a little...
  9. Got pulled over yesterday; first time while carrying.

    Anyone who's trained in disarms knows that knife disarms will most likely get you sliced/stabbed even when you do everything 100% correctly. The old saying goes that the loser in a knife fight dies at the scene, the winner dies in the ambulance. You do everything possible to avoid dealing w/ a...

    There isn't a lawyer anywhere who will tell you to disclose anything you're not required to disclose at a traffic stop. It's that simple.
  11. Got pulled over yesterday; first time while carrying.

    That is old skool! I don't think I have put a key in the ignition in ten years.
  12. Got pulled over yesterday; first time while carrying.

    Wallets are usually fatter than phones so not overly comfortable for me. Who said anything about fannypacks & man purses? If I'm wearing a jacket, wallet & keys are in jacket pocket, if I'm not wearing a jacket they're in the console.
  13. Got pulled over yesterday; first time while carrying.

    Don't you guys get uncomfortable driving with your wallet in your pants pockets? I never have my keys or wallet in my pants pocket when driving.
  14. Got pulled over yesterday; first time while carrying.

    I have been pulled over twice while carrying, never mentioned it neither did the cop. Not sure what you get out of mentioning it although if there's a probability that they'll see your gun when you reach for your wallet it's probably not a bad idea. My wallet is never in my pants pocket so not...
