Joe, remember a few days ago he posted that he went to DPS (or someplace) and after he left got pulled over and arrested for unlawful carry or something similar? I don't remember all the details....hopefully he'll come back and refresh our memories.

The old thread was probably deleted because it was an ongoing legal issue.

Yes, the old thread was removed at the OP's request. I will allow the OP to respond to the issue.

Excuse me gentlemen. I have lost a lot of sleep this week. Here’s what happened. I was taking care of some business at a nearby government office. There was no 30.06 sign so I went on in. Even though my hand gun was holstered IWB with a long shirt covering it was somehow identified. The next thing I knew there were eight handguns and a shotgun staring me in the face. Since the law was not broken the county attorney’s office declined to prosecute the case. :smash: Keith B and others were looking out for me and pulled the original post.

Congrats on getting cleared...but what was the reason that you were arrested? For UCW, right? What did the arresting officer(s) articulate as the reason for arrest? I'm just curious as to how it all went down after the cops had their guns pointed at you. Any way you could post a pic of what you were wearing that day (with your gun/holster on too)? Sorry for all the questions but inquiring minds want to know...

The charge was unlawful carry of a hand gun by a lic. holder. According to the law the gun would have had to been exposed intentionally, knowingly or recklessly. Since that was not the case it was thrown out. The LEO told me that I had taken the class and there was no excuse. :bigmouth This was my first run in with the law as adult (I'm 40+) other than a minor traffic ticket. I was suprised at how ignorant of the law they were. When the dust settled the judge agreed with me, not the LEO.

WOWSERS...I'd really like to see a pic of your outfit/set-up that day...was the gun actually exposed or was it printing? Thank you for responding...this is seriously disturbing.

Interested to know what jurisdiction it was in, sounds like the LEO needs a refresh on CHL statutes and the County Attorney deserves another term.
