It's been awhile, but since I was back in the state last week I remembered seeing an ASP Trooper in blue BDUs on a traffic stop. Just curious if this is something recent that's been approved. Looks like hell.

I don't know the protocols about when they can wear them, but ive seen them irregularly for years. Oddly, ive never worked with any troopers wearing them.

They probably go hand in hand with their bullshit intimidation tactics they use over the phone to try to sell ads in their magazine/newsletter. Turn them down enough, you'll get a personal visit by the "scary" guy in BDUs.

It was a clear day, I believe.

Oh well. I just hope it doesn't become the norm. The boots and smokey covers look great. BDUs?

The guys that call about the ads are paid solicitors. I give them a quick FU, I am on the Federal "Do not call" list and I am reporting them.

If they persist, I have a referee whistle sitting by my phone.

I could be wrong but...they used to wear them on the evening/ night shift...then they went back to their Class "A" all the time but that was a couple years ago when I still worked "the Street"....

That would make sense; it was a couple years ago when I saw it. Thanks for clearing up this sleep-sapping quandry, guys!

No shit? A Tazer in a shoulder holster...was he real skinny? I ask because being thin myself I barely got my keepers on with all that stuff that had to go on my Batman belt....

Older guy, kinda big. He had very little on his bat belt. I figure he was trying to save the remains of his spine.
