    Just do what he says to do. Doing anything less would be to ask for trouble.

    Most states have provisions for that. It is one of their dutys should they decide to do so.

    Absolutely agreed with all the above posts. After you've told the officer you are legally carrying, comply exactly with any instructions he/she gives you.

    Do what you are told - if you don't you may find yourself in a very ugly situation very quickly.

    I sure hope he/she knows how to handle the weapon...that's meant to be a serious statement.

    I am not in law enforcement, if I was I don't think I would ever ask for someone to "hand" me the weapon. I would tell them that I was going to take it from them. The last thing I would want is their hand on the gun. I would have them turn around and I would remove it myself. If I were ever stopped and a LEO asked me for my gun I would prefer they take it. I would not want a passer by to think I was about to shoot a cop.

    No one has mentioned it but if an officer wants it, you will not be handing it over to him. He will relieve you of it.

    I would wait for his instructions and comply.
    That said , if it ever happens I hope its by an officer that is accustomed to handeling a cocked 1911 style pistol. I have come across some younger folks who are freaked out by that.

    That's the best advice there is.

    I seriously doubt this will ever happen. Once the LEO knows you have a weapon, you'll be asked out of the vehicle away from it, or asked to keep your hands away from it and make no sudden moves. The LEO will be taking the weapon from you without you handling it. No need to worry about "transferring" anything.
