If you're pulled over when carrying legally in that state, of course, here are some tips from a police officer.

Only volunteer that information if your state requires it.

A guy was pulled over & he told the cop he had a CCL & was carrying. When he reached for his wallet the cop shot him because he thought he was reaching for his gun. Dead. I believe this was last year & his girlfriend was a witness. When you tell a cop "I have a gun" how will they interpret that? "Back off or I'll shoot?" I'm not required to mention my CCL in my state & my instructor said don't mention it unless you're asked. It's no more relevant than saying "Officer I think you should know that I just ate a Big Mac & I shop at Sears." Has nothing to do with why you're pulled over.

@Skibum4106: And with that attitude, 1 you are a child mentality, and 2, if you are of age to have a firearm, you won't have it long. You are surely part of the problem and not the solution so I would take heed of this video as if not you will be a prime example of what NOT to do...

A traffic stop is a very dangerous interaction , listen and respond accordingly to make a happy ending a Harm's Way interaction is a life-and-death situation that can go south but sheer suspicion

Unless being pulled over for a gun-related violation (e.g. you just shot up your ex'es house), WHY would you even mention you were carrying? If you're in a state that requires notification, turn it over...otherwise STFU!

Was at the beach leaving a club one night, was not carrying, was pulled, didn't give any info. She came back with a warning ticket and asked if l was carrying. Of course l responded 'no'... and that was the end of it.. This was in Atlantic beach, NC, notorious for cops pulling you and giving tickets for everything under the sun.. l believe me having a ccw prompted her to just give me a warning.. that and she was digging my beard.. lol..

Looks like many who are here hate rights. So willing to give them up for nothing but trouble in return.

I have let cops know, using the same method...just hand them the license...several times. I was not ticketed and was thanked for my honesty. Unlike another commentor here, I'm not paranoid the cops are going to steal from me or cause other problems because I carry. I have notified cops in PA, FL and WI....without a single problem.

Fucking cops don't even know how to operate their firearms. Give them a different model and they'll likely shoot you in the head with it. Remember...smart people cannot be cops.

@ErSwnn: Like cops ! Always committing crimes. Read the news lately? Zero good can come out of you telling a cop that you're armed. Zero good.

How does she know that she is not a prohibited person? She doesn't. Perhaps you were convicted of a felony w/o your knowing. Girl is an idiot. See my firearm? Right. If they could just ask and steal your gun that would be a hoot. Follow this instruction: only give a government official/employee bullets.

Well....speaking of stupid...you're top notch there! She's know because...duh...she has her PA LTCF. That would be her first indication to herself of her non-prohibited status. Didn't know she was convicted of a felony??? Wow, you really are stupid. I can only guess you have this notion from personal experience. And if she were convicted of a felony without her awareness to this felony then she made it real easy for the cops to nab her before she does something else stupid. Again, I have a feeling you're well aware of how that goes.

@ErSwnn: I'm smarter than you. Got a ticket, did not say shit. Court time? Could not prove shit because I gave them no evidence to convict me. You probably just confess. Confession, good for soul you think.

@ErSwnn: Why not just deliver your guns to the police now....quit wasting time. You are not useful to America with that attitude.

@phpmer: ErSwnn in your words is 'not useful to America with that attitude', but YOU are DANGEROUS to America with yours, and do NOT represent legal, law abiding gun owners in a postive light at all. If you are a gun owner, I'm not sure you should be, in all honesty. You don't have a good temperament at all. Good day

Perhaps if stopped someone could use the sneaky pete holster since it would not appear be threatening to hand over the handgun that fully enclosed in the sneaky pete like it would to unholster a pistol from a regular holster.

Someone may fear for the officer's safety if they see someone unholstering and they may not know that the citizen is complying with the orders of the officer which is why it may be safer for the officer to disarm preferably holstered the entire time to guard against an negligent discharge (ND). Also unloading the firearm as suggested increases the risk of ND exponentially which threatens everyones safety due to risk injury to self or others including from a ricochet. If the person has an ND while unloading for the officer he or she could potentially be mistakenly shot for simply complying with order.

Agreed. A gun left alone will not have any potential to fire. It's best left right were it is. I have heard of traffic stops in which police have emptied the gun "for safety". This isn't done anymore because it's less safe than leaving the gun in a holster.

Nice job and good advice. I was given very similar advice by a couple of officers I know. Keep up the good work!

I understand the advice, but what about addressing a violation of the 4th amendment if an officer takes possession of your property w/o probable cause.

4th Amendment is unreasonable searches and siezures. If the officer requests you hand him your firearm for his saftey and others during the interaction, he is NOT seizing, he is SECURING. Difference being, after the interaction, if you are not a prohibited person, you will get your gun back. He also takes your ID, Registration, and insurance back to his car. Are those NOT 'your property' as well?? LE can secure any item you have on your person. He can use the "..a 40sw was used in a robbery last week, therefore I have 'probable cause' to secure your firearm"... take to his car, run the serial number, then return it to ya. My opinion, it's those that get an attitutde with a cop when they are carrying WILL lose, and bigley!.
