    The only time I have ever been asked to hand over my firearm was during a traffic stop in West Virginia about 2 years ago. I was pulled over for doing 7 over the posted limit and the officer asked me to exit my vehicle. I complied and informed him I was carrying (VA permit is good in WV), and he didn't freak out, but asked where it was (SOB) and then removed it and unloaded it. I was carrying my custom Glock 32 and he spent the next 10 minutes telling me how much better mine was than his! :D He then gave me just a warning and I was on my way.

    Interesting note, as he handed my Glock back to me, I slid the mag home, racked the slide and reholstered. He then proceeded to tell me that he was "pretty sure that you are not supposed to carry it loaded." I told him that I was positive you should always carry loaded and that if you didn't then it would be defeating the purpose.

    Just goes to show that not all cops know everythin about everything.....even if they think they do.

  5. Usually they want to run the serial number through NCIC to see if its stolen. The courts are always going to side with the police on this issue. They always say that the officer has a right to temporarily disarm you while conducting the traffic stop for his own safety. I'm an LEO I love to see law abiding citizens carrying.
    Every week I encounter armed career criminals so I can assure you that criminals are carrying, are you prepared?

    In other news, this cop has been walking around with an unloaded sidearm all this time. I feel safer already.

    something I should probably know.. if you are a passenger in a car carrying and the car gets pulled over, are you supposed to still inform the cop that you are carrying? or keep your mouth shut as they usually focus on the driver?
    You can have my freedom as soon as I'm done with it!!!

    It would depend on the situation. If it's something like a simple speeding ticket, where the driver is going only a few miles over the limit, then I would say "no". If the officer addressed me directly, and requested my identification, I would provide my carry license along with the I.D. It's a "gray" area. Different states have different laws. Most states talk about if the license holder has contact with LEO. If the cop pulled over the driver for something he/she did, then the "contact" would be between the officer and the driver, not between the officer and myself.

    Hope that made sense.
