    I'm sorry for the confusion. My point was that by not telling them that I was carrying I wasn't treated any differently than those who don't carry. The officers didn't feel they had to disarm me for their safety or subject me to any extra scrutiny which can, in some cases be very uncomfortable as well as inconvenient.

    You know, it was kind of well written and I thought it was funny. However, I never knew I was smart enough to create "nuanced sarcasm". The truck stopped with a jerk and I got out!

    Here in Ioway, LE is being trained to ask now... Are you armed today sir/ma'am?

    In the event I'm asked by LE, I will inform. In fact, if they are asking for DL, Reg, and POI, I will be handing them the PCW as well.

    We'll see how that goes... I anticipate no difficulties.. but you never know.

    Glad it all went well for you, Ratman...
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    Well, I gotta give kuddos to my local PD. I was involved in an accident while I was carrying, a weird one as I was front-ended by a teen who decided to back out of an intersection when the light changed. Only problem was I was there and had cars behind me.

    Anyway, the local PD rolls up and I provide them with my DL, registration, insurance card and CHL with the CHL on top. Ohio is a must notify state. Cop looks at the CHL, asks if I am carrying and I informed him I was at 4:00. He hands the CHL back and proceeds about his business with the accident. That was it, no big deal. He assessed the risk as minimal, which it was, and carried on. I took the time to e-mail the Chief to let him know about the event and that I was pleased with how it was handled.

    :Snip:
    Wait a durn minute here! You're telling me that not notifying the officer you are in legal possession of a weapon does not put him in grave danger? That not notifying doesn't make you more likely to suddenly open fire on the officer and everyone else in the area?
    Hogwash I say!

    Glad everything turned out ok with the accident.

    Here in Florida there is no obligation to inform. Basically because the LEO will know you have a lisence as soon as he runs your tag through his/her computer.
