Yeah I'll second that, I even let officers know when i'm not carrying, It just seems to establish a good rapport. In michigan, if we ARE carrying, Disclosure must be the first thing out of our mouths, and must be immdiate. The only responses I've gotten from LEO's when carrying are: "Thanks for letting me know, just don't go playing with it and we'll be fine." and "Oh yeah? what do you carry?" My response: "Sig 226 in .40 and a Ruger sp101 .357 snubbie." His: "That's better than my duty gun!" He had a Glock 17. I'm waiting for the day that an officer wants to take temporary custody of my firearm, because he'll probably have a feild day looking through all the stuff in my 5.11 Push pack. It's all legal, but I just think he'll really get a kick out of it. Technically, without my consent, he can't search it. But it is where I carry the Sig, so I assume he'll probably look through it without asking, and it's actually sort of a legal grey area.
