My first LEO encounter while packing
Well today, me and a buddy of mine were cruising around in his car since it was such a nice day. We're making our way through an intersection and we had the green light, next thing I know, I hear my buddy yell "WHOAH" and I feel my face hitting the passenger side airbag, and, then I look up, and I see us facing cross traffic. I look around to see what happened, and I got out and looked at his car, and it was pretty much totaled. The front end was all smashed in, and his left quarter panel was messed up. Everyone was ok, including the kid (he was 18), and apparently he ran the red light and ended up hitting us.
Anyway, cops come, and I tell a fairly good looking blonde female officer that I was carrying, and she asked me why and what I was packing , and I told her for protection, and that it was a .45. She just told me to keep my hands out of my pockets, which I did the whole time we were talking to her, up until the time we left.
So everyone was ok, but my buddy's car is totaled.

Thank GOD everyone was OK.
What kind of tone did she have when she asked why you were carrying?

Amen, thank God nobody was seriously injured or killed. But that's one heck of a way to meet a cop!
I guess being a good looking blonde took the edge off a little? Ha Ha!

Glad everything worked out OK & nobody hurt.

You didn't get her phone # and you didn't tell her about CombatCarry.com did you?
You must have still been a little bit dazed by the sudden impact.

must have been a really BAD hit to the head to NOT get a number from a good looking blonde =O).....

The smart ones hand out a business card and say "my number is 911". Funny to see someone's face when that happens.

So was the .45 in your pocket, or were you just happy to meet her?

Why would you tell her that you were carrying?

Why tell a police officer one is carrying, in a situation? Courtesy. Legal requirement to do so. Preservation, given that an officer might well be surprised if found out soon after. Check your laws in AZ, as you might well be required (I don't know).

+1. I'd tell them out of common courtesy. Job aside, they're just humans who want to go home at the end of the day. Anything I can tell them up front to make them understand the situation and not be surprised later is worth the effort in my book.

The law notwithstanding, we appreciate the courtesy of being notified.

Glad airbags saved the day!!
As we so often debate - whether to tell or not unless obliged to. I still will always be in the ''courtesy camp'' - I only have to imagine the potential stress of a traffic stop and putting myself in a cop's shoes - then yes, I sure as heck would prefer to know.

You can consider this the "dumb question of the day"
OKay guys, here's my 2 cents worth on this, and no offense to any LEOs out there, I love you guys.
If I have a gun in my car/on my person, why do I have to tell the LEO about it? Especially if it has no bearing on, say, if they pull me over for going a little too fast. What's the sedgeway there?
"Sir, did you know how fast you were going?"
"No, but, um, I GOT A GUN, OFFICER! JUST THOUGHT YOU SHOULD KNOW!..."
If I have a right to carry a weapon in my car, why is it the LEO's business as long as I'm legal??
