OC for Tactical Advantage

It doesn't mean I always will, and it is not necessarily the brave thing to do. LCDR's point, and it is a valid one, is that we shouldn't have to inform, and we shouldn't assume that just because someone has a badge that they have the authority to force us to.
I will not tell him unless I believe its in MY best interest. Not sure you understood my standpoint. This officer is a stranger to me, I will treat them as a stranger, just like I treat taxi drivers as strangers. Neither get to know about my sidearm unless its pertinent to MY safety.
So, everyone be honest here..do you tell officers for their safety or because you feel you have less of a chance of being shot by a canton *aka psycho* officer?
