Long story short, I have my pistol back. They tried to get me for concealed weapon. But here's the funny...Initial stop; inform the officer I have a gun and to retrieve it, it's on the floor of the drivers side...UNLOADED, charged me with concealed weapon....Picked it up yesterday...They put it in a bag, gun, mag, and bullets...Sent me on my merry way....Now that's concealed:wallbash:

All dismissed except waiting on court date for speeding, which is all this would have been if the state of Vt. hadn't had me suspended on there computer on a Paid fine for expired inspection sticker. That was a fun day....cuffed and stuffed. I applied for my license to C&C, but was told by Washington County, and the Town Clerks, and the gun club, it wasn't necessary, as you can carry, as long as it's not loaded, concealed. As far as I am concerned, I still did the right thing. Once I realized I was gonna be arrested, and they were going to tow my vehicle, I informed the officer to retrieve my gun....He just thought he had a BINGO. Now for my hearing with Vt. over there mistake, that cost me....

I'll tell you what, the day of the incident, I was told, had I been wearing it, there would have been no problem. Which normally for this particular piece, I usually do, but it's a long ride, and had taken it off it had it on the floor. When I questioned the judge, officer, and the guy who sets bail, not one gave the same answer, and said it was a matter of interpertation. Yet town clerk, sherriff, and gun club, all stated, it was unnecessary to apply to C&C, as long as it's not concealed, or loaded, while transporting firearms.

Gun wasn't loaded, but I had bullets with me, actually the mag was loaded. And my house just got broken into in Maine for the 3rd time, that's why I was headed up, never mind, for protection, should I need it. Traveling that distance by myself, you bet your bottom dollar, I am gonna have something with me. Thanks Bruce, for the info, lets see what they have to say.
