Default Progressive insurance rocks!

OK. Wow. I wrecked my pick up on Friday. I have a check in my hand today! They totalled it out and cut me a check for just over $8,000. I am a customer for life.

That cheque must have lessened the pain a lil, Rick Glad to hear you're OK...can't imagine what driving on icy roads would be like.


What a truly professional LEO dealt with you too; and good on you for letting his superiors know that. Well done!

Still a bit mind-boggling how you were able to be involved in a crash and they not automatically take your weapons, as would happen here (at least until it was proved nothing was your fault; the breath-testing came back negative etc etc).

Just how the other half of the world lives, i guess.

I was pulled over for speeding today (he let me go ... thanks LEO's!) and all I could think of was the thread here about notifying/not notifying LEO's about a weapon in the vehicle. In my case, I decided to wait until he asked, but he didn't, so I didn't tell. I knew enough to have my hands planted firmly on the steering wheel and in plain view if he would have, though.

Cops around here are really cool. I have shown my permit 3 times now. Each time it ends up in a conversation about who shoots what. 45 vs. 40 stuff like that. Those phone books really got his attention.

In America, we have a concept of "Innocent until proven Guilty". Most officers believe this (the bad apples are out there). Concealed carry permit holders have undergone at least some training and a pretty extensive background check. I presume a CHL holder to be a cut above the "sheep" that wander the streets aimlessly and the wolves the prowl about looking for sheep.

Now that IS cool! But then I guess most US LEOs would be gun owners privately which is absolutely not the case here.

I wish our cops weren't so suspicious about gun owners/licence holders. Every time you have any type of contact with the police for whatever reason here a massive red flag [WARNING!!FIREARMS!!WARNING!!] jumps up on their screens
