...LEOs working license and light checkpoints still like to ask what I am scared of because I carry my minimag or .38 derringer as a shirt pocket back up to my pocket holstered weapon. Tonight I saw a check point ahead so I laid my I.D. holder with DL and CCW in view on my dash and rolled down my window so I could keep my hands at 10 and 2 as I was interviewed and told the officer that yes I had two firearms on my person and where they were. As he wasn't a deputy who knew me , he had me exit my vehicle and while allowing me to use my door frame to steady myself, removed both weapons for hot gun check and even after breaching and unloading my .38 couldn't find the S/N and I had to tell him it was on the cylinder hinge and recite it to him to help him verify it. Of course as he was checking my weapon S/Ns, while waiting for a return from dispatch, he asked me what I was scared of to be carrying two firearms and I responded with the expected "nothing" instead of asking him why he wore an ankle back up and risk an Asp across my teeth. After he let me get back in my Tahoe and did his light walk around and returned my revolver, derringer and I.Ds and told me Thank You, I said "Deputy, I know it's a standard joke about carrying two weapons but for me it really is a safety factor in this wild west sort of environment we now live in , especially in areas prone to car jackings or invasions even if the doors are locked because of our seat belt law. He looked at me quizzically and asked me why that made my shirt stashed derringer necessary and I explained that if I noticed someone coming at my vehicle to possibly knock out a window without a means of easy escape by giving it the gas, I knew I could easily draw two rounds from my shirt pocket for a close quarter double tap instead of possibly getting tangled in my pocket and seat belt and performing a self castration. I also mentioned that by having my firearms on my person instead of simply stowed in my vehicle, I better ensured possession control of them regardless of any passengers. As I left the checkpoint I noticed the deputy smiling and tilting his head at my vehicle as I returned home. Maybe I gave him something to keep in mind about range trained law compliant firearm owners that many of us as the generally moonlighting LEO range masters we train under, try to keep a plan B back up available and aren't "just scared of something".
