I pull up to the gas pump at a Kwik Trip... Officer Bill Bob is on the other side jaw jacking with some citizen. I exit truck, pull case out. Pull my stainless 1911 out of case put case back in truck [ this is the dumbest state in the union] and pop mag into 1911. Rack the slide, Holster sidearm and proceed to pump gas. All this in full view of Barny Fife and his buddy. Buddy's eyes go wide. Not more than a minute later, this Keystone Cop walks up to me and says "Sir: Were you wearing that gun in the truck? OMG... Talk about a WTF moment.

I give him that; "You're the dumbest dumb person I have seen all day" look and tell him; "Nope, I know the law. I've been open carrying for a long time. "See my open case on the front seat of my truck?" He says; "OK, just have to check." Me; "Have a good day deputy".

Nice job Hardballer.
I bet deputy duh spent the rest of the shift talking about the really cool guy he met at Kwik Trip...

With the big, shiny gun... Yup, that be me...

As cool as I am and I am a cool guy, I suspect the conversation wasn't about my coolness. Not very well like in these here parts.

Just have to check? Really? He doesn't have to do anything. He's not even legally liable if something happens.

While a funny read, I do not see the non-consensual nature of the encounter in the report.

Well Citizen, the non-consensual part comes in with me not wanting to -Chit - Chat- with a cop about anything. He didn't observe me wearing a gun in the truck.

He didn't like my racking the slide on my big shiny 1911 where he could see it and hear it. I reckon he wanted to be a big guy. None of which I appreciated.

Finally, I did not invite him over, I'm not his best buddy or his brother, I am his complete freak'n stranger. All contact for me with a cop is non-consensual if I am not waving him down or calling 911. Period.

Ya, I know. Weird huh. Guy just needed a reason to come over and check me out up close is all I can figure.

Hopefully officer was just putting on a show for his friend, and not being so unobservant as to miss the whole load 'em and rack it routine.....

He is supposed to be keeping a eye on things after all

Ya, I could not believe he didn't see or hear me holstering the gun. I suspect it was more a meet and greet than anything. He had his gruff cop look on and wanted me to know he was official and all... I can't wait for Constitutional Carry...
