When to show your permit

I have had this discussion with many of my "Carry" friends and all seem to have a different answer.
If we get pulled over for anything by a LEO, are we required to tell them that we have a loaded firearm{never say gun} and a permit to carry?
I personally think I should but part of me thinks it's none of their business..

Your feedback please..

The same rule applies in Illinois, we have to state that we have a firearm. You may feel it's none of their business but if it's state law and you don't follow it ................... you lose.

Our instructor when we took our class told us that Missouri doesn't require it but on the other hand I wouldn't want to piss a LEO off by not telling him.

I would like to hear from some of the current/retired LEO's on the forum on this.

Not required in Florida, and I never do. I don't tell them I have a wallet either, or sunglasses, or anything else.

It is different in each state though, so know the laws of the state you are in.

OK, is this the Vodka or Johnny Walker talking, you state in your first post that "your required to tell them" and in the second "it doesn't require it?"

I would find out exactly what the law states and follow it.

I got stopped by the Ohio State Patrol about a year ago. Ohio law requires you to tell them immediately that you are carrying (agree never say weapon). I was on my way to the range and was armed more heavily then the Trooper. He never asked for my permit. He just said thank you, looked at all my gun cases and asked where I was going. I told him the range. He handed me back my drivers license and told me to watch my speed, and to have fun. No ticket and a pleasant experience with an LEO.

As a common courtesy I will tell them.I know that having been an officer I appreciated being told if someone was armed.It's just a courtesy,nothing more.

Then you've answered your own question, follow the law. This from a guy that broke the law for 35 years in the most anti gun city in the union.

Took my class about a month ago now...

Instructor was... meh.

One thing he was very clear on though was... if you are stopped, and have a gun "On or about your person" or "Concealed in the vehicle" you MUST notify the officer and show your permit.
