only if im asked to exit the vehicle will i divulge that info. ( or if there is a good chance my gun could be exposed while fiddling in the glove box.)
Of the several troopers I know personally, most of them say they don't trust most civilians with guns. (Its alittle too easy to get a ccw here.) I can imagine it causing stress when it is unnessesary. The officer now knows you are armed and will be watching every move you make. Plus, does he know how to handle a con 1 1911?
Also there is something about having to pull my gun out in front of an officer that makes me nervous.
If a leo pulls me over, I want a ticket or a warning. We both go on our way no prob.
But this is wa, your life and rationality may vary
