Actually after the stop the trooper did want to see my Springfield 45. He'd never seen one before. He was a gun enthusiast too. Reminds me of the joke about the rancher getting stopped. He told the trooper he had a shotgun an AR a 22 rifle a 357 in the glove box and a 45 on his hip. The trooper said, "Wow, so many guns, what are you afraid of?" Rancher, "Nothin."
