    I don't tell. One officer asked if I was carrying a firearm after he ran my DL and found out that I had a ccw. I asked him "On my person?" He said yes, so I told him no. He never asked if it was in my car and I never told him it was in the console of my truck. He did tell me that the Colorado State Troopers would prefer me to tell them I am a permit holder insted of them finding out over the radio.

    Good Advice, Chief:

    Some words, like "Gun" elicit an automatic response which is undesirable or worse. We never know if the last stop made by the cover officer got him excitable or not.

    different per state ?

    I suspect we could beat this thing to death , but in the state of Michigan you "must" tell the office you have a cpl and if you are armed .. So I guess maybe you should find out before traveling ..
    other than that , being stopped in KY before I had my cpl each time I could see the officer approaching cautiously(must have been the MI plates ) so I made sure both my hands could be seen , the officer really appriciated that ....

    I handle over my DL and CHP and tell the LEO that I am carrying a firearm.

    NY doesn't require so I tend not to disclose unless asked though I will have my permit ready for inspection if required. I understand in some areas LEOs will be advised of a CCW holder by their computer when running the license. I don't know if that has ever been the case during my traffic stops but neither officer mentioned it.
    I will never forget that I am an American, responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which made my country free. I will trust in my God and in the United States of America.

    In Michigan, I hand over Drivers License & Concealed Pistol License together.
    Keep my hands in sight, on the wheel.

    Do NOT NOT NOT use the word "gun"

    Personally, I find the fact that I have a CPL mildly "vets" me.

    got to texas DPS web site. it's under concealed handgun tab.

    When stopped by a law enforcement officer, DPS recommends that you:

    Keep your hands in plain sight
    Cooperate fully with the police officer
    If you have a gun with you, tell the officer as soon as possible
    Don't make any quick movements, especially toward the weapon
    At night, turn on your vehicle's dome light

    VA is not a must notify and I haven't been in a situation to notify yet, but if stopped I would as a professional courtesy. No surprises. I'd just hand them my CCW and tell them what I had and where.

    The last time I got stopped was in Tampa, and I handed the officer my Michigan DL, North Carolina ID and CPL, military ID, reg, and insurance then told her that I had a pistol on my hip. She had a question about resprosity with my permit in FL as she was a reserve officer and wasn't up on all that. I gladly informed her of the information and gave her a print out of the info from teh FL atty gens page. She got the info and was cool with it. After that I IDed her as being single (IE no ring on the finger) and asked her if she was dating anyone. She said no and I asked her to dinner, which she gladly accepted. :D

    I actually had to notify twice yesterday. I've shortened my spiel these days. Now it's "Before we get started, I need to inform you that I have a concealed weapons permit, and I am carrying".

    Both times, both officers smiled and nodded/thanked, and we continued with our business.

    I think a lot has to do with how you present yourself. People tell me that I look like a cop. I'm sure it's not intended as a compliment, but I take it as such.

    I see you're in Florida. In this state the law requires informing the LEO if you are armed when they pull you over. If you don't inform and they find out you're armed you'll be a boatload of trouble, starting with being forcibly thrown to the ground, disarmed, and handcuffed.
