She asked me to exit the truck and I asked her how to proceed. I slowly unbuckled my seatbelt and disconnected my bag and told her one of my guns were inside. She did a bad pat down next to the truck and sent me to the back of my truck and in front of her explorer.So she knew you had on on you, but turned her back to you to check your console? That kinda doesn't make sense. Or you took it out of the holster and laid it on the seat?
Most officers would keep a person in the vehicle where there's better control.
If I was carrying on my ankle or appendix she wouldn't have detected the weapon.
She moved my bag off the console and then retrieved my registration. I know she didn't look around because I have it all on my own camera. She didn't handle any guns or open my bag.
Other guns were in plain view as well.
She complimented my truck and bed cover as she walked back to her explorer.
It took her a while to run my info while I stood in between the vehicles. She was on her cell for a short time so I'm assuming she called the gun center about my MD permit.
She didn't seem to be worried about me and gave me the impression she was just going through motions. Maybe because of the stop being recorded on her end? I don't know.
She gave me a warning and told me to put my plate back on when I returned home. The plate was off because I was fitting a winch a few days earlier and forgot to put it back on.
