If you were speaking to me, I was carrying an LCP Custom. I also have a Walther PPKS, but the LCP is so handy I can carry it "unprinted" on my person at all times.

I carry off body in a carryall bag that contains everything I need to take with me, including my permit and my wallet with driver's license. I have rehearsed what I will say if I am ever stopped and plan to say,
I have a concealed carry permit and my pistol and my driver's license are in my carryall bag under my right leg. The pistol is loaded. I didn't want to touch anything until telling you this.
Then wait for his instructions. I suspect the vast majority of LEOs would appreciate being given this info and would treat me with respect rather than as some kind of threat.

I think he handled it right. Thats what Id have done because my wallet and sidearm are on the same side. But last time I was pulled over for an expired inspection sticker last fall, I had my wallet in my hand BEFORE he got to the car,, so the sidearm was not brought up. But I did intentionally have my CCW permit available for him to see while he was looking at my drivers license, I just left my wallet open. Im certain he seen it. But he didnt ask.

And years ago I learned a lesson. My sidearm and vehicle registration were BOTH in the console together. So I did inform him of that, and he was very calm, and said thats ok, go ahead and get the registration. never ask to see the gun or the CCW permit. Since then, I keep the vehicle registration seperate.

Both times, they were very respectful as I was, and let me go. Might as well be honest , your doing nothing wrong carrying,, so theres nothing to be scared or nervous about. And if they did get ya on a ticket, you screwed up, they gotcha, respectfully take the ticket and call it a day. If you dont feel you deserved the ticket,, stay calm and respectful and take the ticket and the jerk to court.

I think exterior circumstances can play a part too. I think about here in Atlanta going to the Zoo/Turner Field area is OK now, but not many years ago those neighborhoods were a little shady. And you still could take a wrong turn and wind up where you don't want to be. My reaction in those kinds of areas are going to be different than when I'm on my "home turf".

Also, how the officers approach the car will affect my reaction too. If they come up fast because the reason they stopped me is they're looking for a BG driving a red Explorer, I think you'll probably know something's hinky and be very verbal about the gun.

And let's face it, as an exclusively white group on here (I assume but I bet I'm right) we're probably going to have a different experience with the police. But that's not 100%, especially if they're looking for somebody.

What I'm all about is avoiding having police standing outside my car reaching for their guns yelling "Gun! Gun!". That seems like it never ends well.

You may want to rethink that. The officer who lets you put your hand into the bag where you just said has a gun in it must have a death wish. Unless of course his gun is in your ear when you go into the bag.

While visiting in CA a few years ago, I had been warned by my wife, a former CA resident, that the white line is absolute in that "do not stop past the white line". I brushed it off, but, days later, a motorcycle cop pulled along side me and verbally warned me about the "white line" infraction. He said he saw my out-of state plates and wouldn't write me a ticket.

In Ohio your permit is tied to your license. running plates automatically runs the listed owner of the plate. If that is you then your ccw permit info shows up. If the plate is not yours then we don't know. I prefer it if you tell me upfront you are armed.

Think about it. How many criminals will tell a cop upfront they are armed?

Sadly most of the people I pull over with permits are not carrying. I usually admonish them and ask them why they got it in the first place. A permit does you no good if you aren't carrying. I understand if you can't because of work or something but carry your gun. It can save your life.

I ride a Gold Wing motorcycle and also have a concealed carry permit. I do not carry because I don't know where to hide it so it does not print on me. I am rather 'slender' compared to some of my fellow riders. If I was to carry some how, what would be a good way to conceal it?? I do have the belt carrier that came with it, but it is rather obvious hanging off my side. I have a XDM40. I also have not been stopped in so long I can barely remember the last one.

I carry my (thin) wallet in my front pocket. Doesn't cause me back problems (like it used to do) and doesn't interfere with my concealed pistol.

And to the point of another forum member, yes indeed, that cop must've been pretty bored to pull you over for such a BS 'infraction'.

I've been stopped several times and I always put my hands on the wheel. When the LEO gets to my window, I tell him I have a permit and am carrying, and ask how he would like me to proceed. Almost always, he tells me "Thanks" for telling him and we proceed from there.
