We live in the country, at the end of a quarter mile driveway shared by another home, both behind a locked gate. After a trip to town grocery shopping, we arrived to find the gate wide open and a strange car visible. Upon drawing even to the neighbor's house several more vehicles came into view, marked Sheriff's cars and a half dozen armed men. Since the driveway was blocked and also because one of the officers indicated we should stop, I complied. When I exited the car I identified myself and told the deputy I was legally carrying a concealed weapon. He asked me to "assume the position" on the side of one of the cars, asked where the weapon was, and then disarmed me. He unloaded the gun, and put it on the hood of the car. He identified himself and told me his crew was serving a search warrant on the neighbor's home. He asked for our id's and asked some questions about our neighbors. When he had the information he wanted, he returned the bullets, then the empty revolver, and asked if I would not load the gun until I was back at my home. The officer was polite and respectful the whole time and we were not offended or treated rudely. They even closed the gate after they left. Looking back at the whole thing, I guess it is not very newsworthy, except to illustrate that it was not a hostile confrontation, and that they did their job professionally and courteously.
