My Dad, Grandpa and I are headed back from the East after picking up Grandpa’s ‘60 Ford Starliner parts car. So far we’ve seen a somewhat disappointing NASCAR Hall of Fame, the AWESOME Michael Waltrip Racing facility, a gun manufacturer, and we’ve been stopped by the Law.
On the way to North Carolina from Utah, an Arkansas highway patrolman (supposedly) noticed that we were drifting a bit in our lane and pulled us over. More likely is that we matched a profile (big van hauling a trailer with a bunch of tires chained down on it), but I’ll let commenter Kevin confirm or deny that.
We weren’t speeding, so we got off without a ticket, but the officer got a little indignant when my Dad “failed to present his Carry Permit upon being stopped” after he asked if we had any guns in the car (he noticed the stack of gunsmithing books I picked up on Craigslist Oklahoma City). Apparently there’s a new law in Arkansas that requires all Concealed Carry Permit holders to present the officer with their CCW upon being stopped. He lightened up when he realized we were from out of state.
Side Note: he was packing the newish Gen 4 Glock 22.
