I briefly search on this topic and didn't see it, sorry if it has already been discussed on this forum.
I was recently debating with a friend on whether to declare that you're "legally in possesion of a load firearm" imediately when pulled over for a routine trafic stop, or whether to not say anything unless asked or told to step out of the car by the officer.
On one hand declaring might delay the traffic stop, and get the officers blood pumping for no reason.
On the other hand the LEO's that I have talked to say they would rather know upfront, than find it later. They might appreciate you acknowledgment for their safety any give you a warning on for speeding.
We both carry, but neither of us have been pulled over while carrying.
What is the general consensus for getting pulled over: immediately declaring, or only if asked?
