Good job on the OP's part.
In many jurisdictions the police are uninformed with respect to CC/OC laws and PC, RAS, and search in the context of weapons carry. The result is that the public must inform through voluntary encounters, or the department must institute a training program. The latter usually only happens after a citizen sues (or raises a persistent stink) over a civil rights violation.
I don't OC (I prefer to go unnoticed by other citizens), but it is for these reasons that I am strongly opposed to the view that one should "keep it covered" so as to avoid inevitable police encounters when OC is legal. It's akin to "keeping your mouth shut" or "staying home on election day" to "stay out of trouble."
I've not gotten into the BUG thing. Not a bad idea. Socially its hard enough explaining one gun to friends that know I carry. And I really don't want all the extra stuff. I only carry an extra Mag when I carry my P238.
