    I usually wait until he asks " Do you know why I stopped you tonight"? I reply with "Because you are afraid to fight real crime"?

    Then I yell "I'VE GOT A GUN"!!!!!!



    You may now carry on with your absurd non-directional bantering.

    I live in Minnesota, have a Utah CCW (as well as a MN CCW with no reciprocity in Texas) and get stopped in Texas. Will the officer know that I'm legal? Or don't they check or care?

    Sorry, maybe I should know this, but why not say gun, firearm, weapon????? That's what it is!

    It is to eliminate possible confusion. Firearm or weapon would probably be ok. "Gun" is often a trip word between officers.

    Hmmm.....Ok Thanks, I didn't know that! Nobody ever covered that at any of my safty classes. I,m pretty sure I wouldn't be yelling "GUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN" at the officer I was going to inform, but I guess if they don't like that word I can find another one that will work.

    I don't personally volunteer any information that's not required by law. Here in Florida we are not required by law to inform of our CWP holder status.,therefore I do not.

    I won't lie if the LEO asks me about having a weapon,at that point I'll produce my permit. However I won't volunteer it just because and this is one the advice of my attorney.

    I don't know if you've since found out for sure, but Arkansas is a "Shall inform" state. From all I've read, it's been that way since at least the first of the year, if not longer.

    never notified with any of my traffic stops. I did get in an accident one time and asked the officer if he would retrieve my gun for me before i went to the hospital. Didn't want my gun leaving with my smashed up car!

    Well, the first time I was carrying and I didn't have a CHP. I didn't say anything about it and he didn't ask.

    The next two times I handed over my CHP with my D/L. It was probably sort of silly since one time the gun was on the seat in plain view, and the second time was after a motorcycle accident and the gun was now being open carried since I had taken my jacket off. Both times they just haned the CHP back without comment.

    The other couple times were "routine license checks." I handed over my D/L and never mentioned the CHP or the gun. They handed my D/L back and said "Thank you" and I went on about my business. They did too I guess.

    I don't live in a must notify state. I have had two LEO interactions.

    1) I was rear ended at a red light once. Didn't see how my carrying was relevant. Never mentioned it, never came up.

    2) My wife was pulled over for speeding while I was in the passenger seat. She does not have a permit to carry. I did not mention anything (in fact I didn't open my mouth at all, not even after to criticize her driving: I may be dumb, but I'm not an idiot) and the stop proceeded without issue. I still can't figure out how she got the minivan 10 mph over the speed limit going uphill from a red light in 1/4 mile though.

    I'm not required to inform, but I am friends with a number of PSP and local officers and in discussions, their position has been stated as "a good idea" to inform.

    However, having a CC license has made me a safer, more cautious driver that is far less likely to throw the finger or curse some moron out, who desperately needs it, just to avoid the issue entirely.

    "Officer, I have an Ohio concealed handgun license and am carrying my firearm."

    Ohio requires it. I wouldn't notify if it wasn't.

    I had some possible vandalism to my car in Virginia - a need-not-notify state. My CHP is from NC as are my DL and tags. When the officer responding took my DL, I informed him of my status and told him I was not armed at the time. (I had come out to speak to the LEO, and decided to take off my ccw since I was there with a cop.)

    I said, "When you run my license, you'll see I have a CHP. I am not currently armed." He waved it off, saying, "Thanks - no problem".

    That was it. Nice. Professional. Matter-of-fact.
