    LEO moving in

    Not in my apartment, but in my complex.

    It is a small complex with sixto-eight units. He may even move in to the unit next door to mine as it has recently become vacant. My question is whether I should inform him of my carry status as I will likely run into him periodically when he is both in uniform and regular clothes.

    No, he is your neighbor. If you want to go for it, but there is no need too.

    I wouldn't. He is still just your neighbor. I would introduce myself and let him know that if he needs anything he could knock on my door. But I wouldn't disclose the fact that I carry.

    No, I'm sure he doesn't care.
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    I wouldn't; besides, AZ does not require "informing" when contacted by a LEO.

    Personally, I wouldn't see a need in informing him of anything. If you want to strike up a conversation with him, how's about saying 'hello, I'm your neighbor'? Some LEO's look at citizens who carry as a possible backup when the chips are down---others may look at us as crackpots or militia wannabe's. Follow me?

    I would do that, and I might mention after knowning him for some time if he would like to go target practicing. But try not to come off as, "We are going to go target practicing, would you like to be the target?" lol

    Always offer help to your neighbors when you can and when it's a smart thing to do. Do something for your neighbors like baking a cake to helping them move in, all the way to giving them shelter if their house burned down. Because neighbors make really good friends or really bad enemies. I think this proved true with Katrina, among other natural disasters.

    Don't unless you become friends or some issue requires it.

    You might tell him in passing after you've known him for awhile but then again, maybe not. The guy may turn out to be an All-American a.h.

    I like the going to the range with him, after you have known him for a while. You may wait a little while and find out you really have nothing in common, or he's a real jerk. Don't give up information too early when you don't know the situation well.

    Just treat him like any other neighbor and see if you have any common interest.

    Here in Nc you are only required to notify LEO of your ccw if they are interacting with you in an official capacity. Whether in uniform or not, that doesn't matter. Personally, I would keep it to myself, the fewer who know the better. Until you know this officer better you are probably better off keeping it to yourself. You have no way of knowing how he feels about ccwers.
