I got pulled over by one of those black and white blazers, the DPS officers who deal primarily with commercial vehicles.
We'd actually been talking for a while, and he was looking over my truck, when he got around to asking for my driver's license and medical card. (Commercial drivers have to have a DOT physical every two years and are required to carry a card showing that you're up to date.) I handed him my DL and CHL and by the time I found my medical card, he handed the CHL back to me. He never asked if I was armed and I never said. The subject just never came up. Totally irrelevant to our business at the moment, I guess. As it should be.
A good stop.
(Especially considering that he could have given me a ticket for any number of things wrong with my piece-o-junk truck but instead only gave me a warning for several minor issues. )
