    Why would you? Seriously, why would one cop ask another for his gun on a traffic stop. We are all on the same team people.

    I'm kinda curious why one would as well also. I can see a felony stop for whatever reason but I'm referring to a basic traffic stop for something minor

    No way; not based on the scenario as presented. I wouldn't disarm another officer except for serious, bad stuff. For that matter, I wouldn't surrender my weapon on a traffic stop; I'd request a supervisor.

    Had it happen to a coworker in the DC area. Officer wanted the weapon secured in his patrol vehicle for the stop (after he checked the guy's creds)

    I'm sorry but I'm not giving my weapon to anyone. Plus, if I stop a guy and he says he is in the job I say, "ok brother have a nice day"

    I wouldn't disarm another officer for a minor traffic matter.

    Nope, never have. Then again, I don't often takes guns from CCW holders who ID themselves before I ask either. However taking a cops gun is lame, and generally a bad way of building agency friendships. I know of a cop that asked my Chief to go disarm himself after flagging down an officer in another town to report a crime.

    When I stop an off duty, I disarm them, handcuff them and then hogtie their ***. Cops are crazy. They can't be trusted.

    One time I had this off duty troop stopped and he was like, " hey brother, I'm off duty- stay safe out there". I was like, " oh hell no I'm not your brother and no one tells me what to do". The guy was complete nut job.

    Off duty cops are only pretending to be cops. The uniform makes the cop, not the person.

    I have heard stories here locally about officers being asked to disarm during traffic stops for just routine violations (ie. speeding, red lights, etc). The ones that refused to nothing happened other than a supervisor responding to the scene to mediate. The only time I seen a gun asked for was just right before field sobriety tests was being started and there was no problem from either side.

    On a previous department I worked for a coworker was disarmed at gun point. It is tough to be a minority and a cop.

    I know a sergeant from another agency who stopped at a liquor store, off duty, to buy a 7-Up and apparently the clerk saw the bulge under his jacket and next thing he knew he was getting 'felony stopped' in the rain.

    Roger that, my first thought would be "crooked cop" and does he think I am doing a case on him.

    I have had academy classmates and co-workers go to prison. Some still in, some got out. Some bizarre stories that would make good movies.

    Che not to highjack this thread, when you mentioned a bulge under his jacket, it brought back a memory of a young still living at home just out of college wannabe applicant showing up for his oral board CCW. When asked if he’s was carrying he proudly displayed a Glock 17 in a Safariland shoulder rig. He wanted to be a cop so bad he literally “jump the gun”. My gut feeling was if I did not arrest him and confiscate his weapon I‘d be working for that SOB some day.

    I allow em to keep their gun, but I tell em that I'll have to conduct a Texas DPS-style cavity search before I can release them. Only one pair of gloves will be used if other officers are riding in the car.

    I trust you will do exceptionally well under “cost consciousness” on your next evaluation.
