truebeliever,
as a licenced law abiding firearm owner, roadside encounters with the constabulary (typically not RBT) are a joy. For expediency, my details are recorded on the same database as convicted peadophiles.

When they radio through the rego plate, they get a response "may be armed", twice they've come towards the car holsters unclipped, and asked if they can search the vehicle ( I declined both cases), and both times got booked for a speeding offence that I didn't commit.

My father had an interesting stand-off on the way home from the squash courts one evening. His wallet was in the boot of his car, and the oriface (I mean officer) was demanding to see I.D., and wanting it now, but wouldn't let him open the boot of the car.
