Re: o/t cops...me too...long.
I had a similar experience a few years back.
I'm a State Hunter Safety Instuctor, and was teaching a course one Saturday. After the course, my brother-in-law asked me to check out a .30-06 he wanted to buy. So we headed down to the next town to look at it, and he decided to buy it. We left a few hours later, and were puller over by a State Trooper. He came up on us with his hand on his gun, the light in our eyes, and said we had a light out and would we step out of the truck. Once I saw his face, I said, "Hi Dale, what's going on?". He then relaxed when he saw me and started laughing.
He said there was just a robbery, with a rifle, by 2 people in a beat up light blue 2wd pickup, which we were in. One of them was wearing camo (which I was from the course) and brandishing a rifle, the other guy was smaller (which my brother is). We fit the descriptions perfectly. If we'd been stopped by anyone else, we'd have gone to jail, no doubt about it.
He told us we didn't have a light out, he just needed a reason to stop and investigate us, fine with me.
