Keeping your license to carry next to your carry gun.

    Not quite as bad as the writer makes it out to be. I believe many states allow the officer to see from DL and registration records that you have a CHP. VA does for certain. During a stop, you do not have to show your actual CHP document. Duty to notify varies, but it is courteous to notify the officer that you have a weapon under any circumstance. Yes, I have been stopped and had the conversation. No, I did not do it with a Glock 22 in my ear.

    The answer to the last part of the article is a brain suppository.

    Yabbut you didn’t show your weapon and reach for it. Whether you get a gun pushed in your face or not, that would be a pretty tense situation I’d prefer to avoid.

    You can’t assume that a cop is always going to have a patrol car nearby where they can check DMV records. Sometimes they need to see the CHP on the spot.

    Smells too much like mall ninja. Almost as bad as those concealed carry badges.

    1. Familiarize yourself with your State’s “duty to notify” law. That should have been briefed in your CCW classroom.

    2. Carry only the actual license/permit, no other paperwork. If you are stopped, and asked for any “papers”, always make your actions in retrieving them slow and deliberate, and it’s not a bad idea to make a remark to the officer, “I’m getting out my wallet now” while you do so.

    3. Be polite at all times, no matter what you think of LEOs. You can yell, curse, etc after he has left.

    4. If you are polite, and the officer ISN’T, you have a case for Internal Affairs to review. If you take the impolite officer’s lead and sling some crap back at him/her, you have just given up all hope of getting any justice.

    Rivrdog speaks truth.

    I pay the extra $10 to get the ID card that’s offered here in AL but they also give you simple paper copy. That lets me keep the ID card in my wallet and still keep the paper copy secured to the back of my holster just in case.

    That and I carry IWB and know the “duty to notify” laws for wherever I’m going. Unless there’s a duty to notify or they ask, I keep my mouth shut.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
