    If you have displayed a firearm legally you have nothing to fear from the police, so best to call and CYA. That's why we carry isn't it? To cover our

    The difference in the scenario (i.e. gun/knife visible) is if you could clearly see a weapon then a 911 call would be to report aggravated assault in addition to your drawing your weapon. If you cannot clearly identify a weapon then it would simply be a report of suspicious people and drawing your weapon.

    I completely agree that drawing the weapon is unquestionably justified (in AZ.) The contentious point is whether to report it after nothing illegal transpired.
    I'm sorry, I misunderstood the question.
    I think that yes, I would call, because I don't want a description of me, my car, my license plate, to be phoned in by someone who tells the police that he was just coming up to ask for a smoke and I pointed a gun at him. And there's me, who didn't say boo about it to anyone. Makes me look mighty guilty; whereas calling first makes me look like I was just defending myself.
