    Tennessee law does not require that you announce.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    You should check each state's law on the subject to be sure. Handgunlaw.US probably has decent information but I always check each state's state police web site to verify that the information that I have is up to date. I assume that you already have verified that your permit (or permits) is/are valid in each state. While at the state police web site, also review the restrictions placed on carrying, to make sure that you know each state's law regarding carrying in a bar, etc. It pays to be sure!

    I never looked at it this way, but depending upon circumstances and the company you keep, when an LEO runs a drivers license check it shows if your a ccw permit holder. So warning a state officer would be a courtesy.
    BTW.... In ALABAMA, you have to announce.

    Missouri does not require you to notify LEO of your permit but I probably would out of courtesy depending on the situation.

    Being a resident of Alabama, you do not have to announce if stopped.

    Alabama Law

    § 13A-11-75. License to carry pistol in vehicle or concealed on person --
    Issuance; term; form; fee; revocation.
    The sheriff of a county, upon the application of any person residing in that county, may
    issue a qualified or unlimited license to such person to carry a pistol in a vehicle or
    concealed on or about his person within this state for not more than one year from date of
    issue, if it appears that the applicant has good reason to fear injury to his person or
    property or has any other proper reason for carrying a pistol, and that he is a suitable
    person to be so licensed. The license shall be in triplicate, in form to be prescribed by the
    Secretary of State, and shall bear the name, address, description, and signature of the
    licensee and the reason given for desiring a license. The original thereof shall be
    delivered to the licensee, the duplicate shall, within seven days, be sent by registered or
    certified mail to the Director of Public Safety, and the triplicate shall be preserved for six
    years by the authority issuing the same. The fee for issuing such license shall be one
    dollar ($1) which shall be paid into the county treasury unless otherwise provided by
    local law. Prior to issuance of a license, the sheriff shall contact available local, state, and
    federal criminal history data banks to determine whether possession of a firearm by an
    applicant would be a violation of state or federal law. The sheriff may revoke a license
    upon proof that the licensee is not a proper person to be licensed.

    It is nice to get word of mouth so to speak, best to look it up yourself.

    I always tell politely and relaxed that I have a CCW and that my side-arm is ... and ask them what they want me to do.
    Even here in Florida where you do not have to tell, I know some LEOs who believe you have to.
    So I play it safe, and never regretted it; it was always a non-event; I might have avoided a ticket or two ... courtesy goes a long way.

    in my experience, i always tell LEO's i am carrying in my truck, where i dont need a license....louisiana states you have to notify and allow them to disarm you if deemed neccesary. i had trouble with an arkansas sheriff on the way to missouri where he stated the gun cannot be within reach of the driver unless you have a permit, but he was being an dork.

    my philosophy, ALWAYS ANNOUNCE, if you are doing something to be stopped the courtesy might just keep you out of a ticket!

    I'm getting ready to go through Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Arkansas and will inform each of them should I get stopped as a courtesy to the officer. I don't, however, plan on getting stopped....
