Crossing the Narrows bridge today, I was stopped for speeding (claimed 70 in a 55 but that's another matter:bluelaugh:.) There were two Troopers, unusual but one was a rookie so I guess training. As they approached the passenger side window, I rolled it down and kept my hands on the wheel because I had a loaded pistol in the center console with my insurance card. I have a CCW and all is in order. When the Trooper asks for my info, I notify him that I have a gun, it's loaded and secure. This is where he asks me to surrender the pistol. Never been asked to do that before. When I ask why, I get the answer, "It's for our safety." I then ask "What is the regulation that allows you to do this?" and he replies, "I'm not going to argue with you, it's because I told you to." I was in a hurry and I knew I'd get it back (they unloaded it first) so I didn't want to make a scene. So my question is: Does an RCW exist that allows them to do this for a non-criminal stop? Thoughts on this?
