Telling a cop about my CPL/gun or telling a desk clerk about my CPL/gun is more likely than not going to delay the achievement of that goal.
    Why would you not inform a cop while getting a traffic ticket? In the academy, cops watch video after video of other cops walking up to vehicles and being shot in the face. They walk up to your car with their hand on their gun for a reason...they have NO IDEA if your crazy or what. You really wanna find out what happens if you reach for your wallet and they catch a glimpse of a gun on your waistband. Your return home might be a little more than "delayed". My life is more important to me than making it home 10 min earlier. Then again, in SC you're legally obligated to inform.
    I don't inform because of officers you just described, crazy ones.

    I am seriously confused. Are you for or against informing police when not required to by law during routine situations such as traffic stops?

  5. Absolutley not why would I. The guy/gal at the front desk doesn't need to be fear me so, why would I start a panic.

    I must be paranoid. I have had two traffic stops (one speeding, one expired plate. I know, i know...) and both times i stated my CCW status and they could each not care less. One Omaha cop and one county sheriff. We have "notify" law here in NE and I'm paranoid I'll get popped for not telling. In working 911 dispatch for a short time, i know that cop knows if you have a permit to carry before he/he gets out of thier vehicle whether or not you divulge. Not that it would come up every time, but I'm waiting for the precidence to be set by a cop asking if the driver is carrying, say's "no" and the cop feels probable cause to search and...

    Why the hell would you??? I travel (road warrior) often and always make sure they have an in-room safe, so I can store my handgun in a safe place, while I hit the pool.

    The thought has never even cross my mind. If I wanted every one to know I would just open carry.

  10. I agree with tin can, I wouldn't tell anyone, it stays concealed until the need arises!
