    And you wonder why the public has little respect for the police.

    I've talked to a few cops and their attitude is "I don't want to know" - 'course they assume everyone is armed anyway.

    Inform

    Here in Florida, if you are in a boat and are pulled over my a waterborn LEO, they will ask you "Is there anything you want to tell me?" The CG will actually ask if you have firearms aboard, and take custody during the stop.
    Now, Inform? Yes. The Barney Fifes' aside, that LEO has a tough job, and he wants to go home at night. So, lets take a situation. You get stopped, and don't inform. You start reaching for you wallet or whatever, and he sees the outline of a gun or the gun itself. At that point, his hand is on his gun. A wrong move and he MAY draw and fire. Then he takes out your gun from its holster and puts it in your bloody lap and claims self defense.

    I will inform and do it in a professional sounding manor. Like said above, cab light on, hand on wheel, drivers window open, then ask him what he wants me to do. Hey, I want to go home at night, too......

    G&M-
    I said the troopers stopped in regularly, they were coffee drinking regulars at the station and friends, it was said as a friend would kid around as a friend. Not in a smart @ arrogant manor.

    Ha, did you say "Play it by ear" after the above? It cracked me up.
    Yes I did

    I have to notify in TX. Being a retired LEO, I would notify anyway out of professional courtesy. I'm not paranoid about LEO's, but that's me...

    I live in FL and have had a CCW Permit for almost 16 years. Over that time frame I have been pulled over numerous times. I use the interstate to get back and forth to work - the speed limit is sort of a "guide line" down here, I guess.

    One is not required to acknowledge. However, I have quizzed several of my LEO friends for advice and they all basically said the same thing: a LEO is trained to take control of the encounter. Keep your hands in plain sight, be respectful and wait for them to ask the question "are there any weapons in your car, sir?"

    You must be truthful and it is a felony otherwise. Typically I point out that a hand gun is in the bag inthe passenger seat. Some have asked me to hand them the bag very slowly, others have opened the passenger door themselves to retrieve it. They ask if I have a permit then retreat to their vehicle to run a check. After we conclude our business, they generally tell me to retrieve my gun from the bed of my pick up after they drive away. It's always been emptied with the magazine removed. I've even had a few compliment me on my carry piece.

    Hope that helps.
