What kind of AR-10? I mean make and model... That's the rifle I want over all others. I want one I don't have to modify after I buy. A lot of people find the stock triggers terrible and have to replace them, I don't like to spend a lot of time modifying the gun I just want to throw a scope on it and be done. So if you don't mind spending a moment providing advice on an AR-10, I would appreciate it.
I didn't know about #3, but I always try to pull off in a safe place as soon as possible. And I am always nice, because I don't want to go to jail.
The incidences where I didn't have a, uh, good experience was always when the cop was in some sort of temper tantrum. The time a cop pulled a gun on me, it was immediate. Once we stopped, I was getting my license, reg and insurance out of my wallet when I heard him screaming "Get out with your hands up, now!". When I looked, he was perched behind his door with his gun and head visible over the window sill both pointed at me. He scared the shit out of me.
He then slammed me against my own car (not cool, I took a lot of pride in my car and didn't want to scratch or dent it.) and hand-cuffed me, tightly, very tightly...left marks on my wrists.
It was apparently a case of mistaken identity, though he never explained what or who he was looked for. After he questioned me a bit he calmed way down and uncuffed me.
Then he gave me a ticket for 'too fast for conditions' because he didn't know how fast I was going. Which I thought was unfair. If you wrongly, scare the shit out of, ruff up a little, and cuff someone really tightly and he wasn't a criminal, I think the experience should negate the ticket. I was just a poor college student who worked full time, I wasn't loaded. But it could have been worse. He could have hauled my ass in before he figured out I am not the guy he was looking for.
I did not resist, I was not uncooperative in anyway. I was too scared to be aggressive. I couldn't figure out why he was mad, 'cause I was driving a little fast? That can't make a cop that mad? I don't even remember the questions he asked because my head was spinning. I didn't understand what was happening or why.
