I recently saw an episode on Best Defense about how to handle a traffic stop while carrying concealed. I was pulled over a couple of weeks ago and followed the instructions I had seen on the program to the letter. When the officer approached my truck I had my window open and both hands on the steering wheel. She asked me how I was doing and I politely stated..."Before we go any further, I want to inform you that I have a concealed carry permit and I have two loaded weapons in the truck...how would you like to proceed." The officer asked me where the guns were located and I told her. I forfeited my guns to the officer and we proceeded with the traffic stop. When all was said and done she returned my firearms to me and thanked me for handling the situation the way I did. Was I nervous? Yes. But I felt much more at ease about the whole situation by bringing my pistols to her attention right up front.
