posted this on GON since I was headed hunting figured I'd throw it over here too. Well headed to KS last week...got to love a speed trap right into IL from Kentucky....I was still going 80 and it dropped to a 65 "speedamainia 65" is what he called it I didn't argue but onto the firearms... Him- "You going hunting" Me- "yes" H- "shotguns, locked unloaded?" M-"yes under back seat" (we were in a truck guns in soft case I never mentioned they weren't in hardcase with locks) H- "you don't have any handguns or rifles do you?" M- "we'll mater fact I do have a hand gun here" H- "you know IL is a no CCW state blah blah" H- "where is it at" M- "in the console here I have my GWL and just passing through IL" H-"let me see it (gun), you have a carry license in GA, let me see it too" M- ( I was a little nervous here he was asking me to pull it out) "ok just take it easy I joked" I handed it to him he pulled and racked the slide. (luckily I stopped for gas right before the line and unloaded and put the mag in the dash being in a truck its not like i could lock it in the truck so I was hopping this would suffice if something like this happend; and I'm glad I did if I had left it hot he might thrown a conniption fit. He sees the mag is gone and its unloaded, he ask for the mag and wants to see it...then talks a little more I tell him I'm just passing through and can carry everywhere else on my way he hands it back goes and runs my DL...gives me my ticket and lets me go on. Glad it went as well as it did and he didn't try and run the SN or anything like that.... I just can't see how anyone can live in such and anti firearm state like IL big deer or not its truly an anti liberty state and i made sure to not spend a dime driving through it. although they will get my $120 ticket (they also had about 3 pulled over after i topped the hill and pulled 2 more over while i was sitting there....motorcycle cop shooting laser and the cars pulling people over down the road).
