I just got a call from a friend who has the tag, H&K MP5. He tells me he is on a sales call (a major alarm company), a long drive, a couple hours away from his normal area. Within one mile of his destination, he gets pulled over. He had gotten a call from the office but for some reason his call didn't go through his car's bluetooth, so he answered his handset...that was what got him pulled over. He gets a $130+ ticket...then the officer asks him if he has an MP5. The officer wants to be all friendly and talk guns. My friend tells me, the cop pulls him over, gives him an expensive ticket, then wants to be all buddy-buddy and talk guns, for the next five minutes. He's telling me all he is thinking is, "give me a warning and he could talk all day about guns, but give me a ticket, just go on your way."
I could tell you a similar story that happened to my good friend and SOT at AZ Armory (I was the passenger in the vehicle) last year as we were on our way to do some riding at the cinders outside of Flagstaff about a AZ Highway Patrol officer named Tucker....who's name coincidentally name rhymes with mother f#$%er.
