    Handling your gun from an unusual position at an awkward/tense moment sounds like a recipe for trouble.

    In Oregon, you do not have to notify regardless if you're carrying or not. Listen to this little tidbit mp3 on the Oregon OFF website where an officer simply didn't know this law, and called in to see if he could revoke the permit.

    As far as fidgeting beforehand, yikes! What if the officer came to your window rather quickly and you simply didn't have time to finish, or perhaps the officer is sitting in his patrol car watching you rapidly trying to do something...perhaps he would suspect you were trying to hide or cover something up quickly.
    It is utterly illogical to believe that passing laws to reduce gun violence will be successful when those who are commiting the gun violence do not obey the law.

    During a traffic stop, Ky police will be advised that you have a CC license when entering your info in their on-board computer. I imagine this is the same in many or all states. I've not been stopped since having my CC license, but I expect the cop to be quite careful upon re-approaching my vehicle. I have thought about it and would probably advance the info that I have the license and am armed as soon as he stops me. Common courtesy I suppose.

    Any thoughts on this?
    Oh hel* NO!! Never fidget and move around....let alone WITH a weapon!! Your just asking to die of lead poisoning!! It's funny that would even come to someones mind!!

    Taking my pistol away and then unloading it and putting it in my trunk just displays for me the in experience and unprofessionalism of the officer...this is a bunch of 'toro feces'...IMHO

    no, at least in most states I know of. You don't have to tell him or her if you are carrying in FL either. I would volunteer the information and let the officer decide the best action to take. The officer can tell from the computer system probably anyway.

    Finally got pulled over...

    ...and I say it's about time too! I've heard how you drive!

    Seriously, there are as many schools of thought regarding "securing the weapon" as their are police officers. Some departments leave it to the officer's discretion and some (though not too many) have a policy.

    Bottom line, the officer is responsible for his own safety in that situation and he should do what he sincerely believes is the safest because his number one priority is to make it home at the end of his shift! Not saying he'll make the right decision though.

    I carry a 1911 and I have serious concerns about a police officer who is not familiar with my weapon, taking it out of my holster and unloading it but... about all I can do is cooperate and maybe offer a little advise and or dive for cover.
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    judgement to keep himself out of situations that would require a display of his
