    While I had no obligation to inform I didn't need some kiddie cop getting flustered at the sight of my fiveSeven.
    YMMV

    Excellent! That is a perfect example where using common sense works.

    YOU WERE UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO COMPLY: This guy violated your 4th amendment rights big time. He should have known better, and probably did. But when allowed to get away
    with this sort of illegal search it only makes it harder for the next guy. But I know where your'e coming from, sometimes it's just not worth the hassle/

    Unlike some of the others, I don't mind starting debates. Why should inform the officer if I'm not required to by law? It's jut an invitation for him to confiscate the weapon for the remainder of the stop and mistreat it or even endanger me. I've seen a video where a cop took a revolver off a CCWer and then proceeded to wave it all over the place, including pointing it directly at the owner, trying to figure out how to unload it. He had never touched a revolver before. Eventually he had to give it back to the CCWer and have HIM UNLOAD IT. Now, if you feel threatened to point having to secure the weapon from the CCWer, why the hell would you hand him back a loaded weapon? Obviously it just made the cop feel macho to exert his authority over the CCWer and he never actually felt threatened. I have no desire to have to put up with that crap.

    Cool! Your Government Permission Slip to be ALLOWED to carry must look sooooo neat!

    When I get pulled over and the officer asks me if I have any weapons on me, I always reply with "why? What do you need).
    Ah, good times, good times for all!

    I believe this is the reason so many of our Rights have died away. There should never be a time our Right's are not worth the hassle, ever. Saddening you know?

    That little piece of tin on your shirt don't buy you no free lunch with me.
    Just because you wear that tin on your shirt doesn't earn you automatic respect from me either.
    Respect has to be earned, never given freely.
    Respect given freely, without being earned is called fear.

    Very cool, just wondering what the cop says when you don't have one of the government permission slips that states you are allowed to drive a car? (Sarcasm on!)

    Similar experience. Pulled over on my way home from a board meeting. 10:30 on a Monday night. Stopped for a brake light. LEO asks if I have any guns, drugs or nukes in the car. Advised him I had a licensed, registered, loaded handgun on my right hip. He asked for my CCW permit, looked at it and tossed it back to me. Advised me to fix the light so someone doesn't rear-end me and left.

    Hey wait, this is NYS. I'm supposed to be arrested right?

    Don't notify unless required by law or if specifically asked. Never volunteer information as you might talk your way right into those handcuffs.
