    This may have been posted already but I saw this on another forum. Your Thoughts? I think the driver was in the wrong.

    Don't you need to inform the officer that you are carrying before you say anything? Those should have been the first words out of the guys mouth IMO?

    Either way the cop definitely has an attitude and a big ego. Charging the guy because when the cop made him bend over his gun outline poked out? Really..

    The driver is definitely in the wrong. Although I would have informed the deputy that I was carrying and licensed before getting out of the vehicle, he cannot expose his weapon either intentionally or accidentally. That is what he was charged with.

    Wow! So if your shirt happens to lift too high and someone accidentally sees your weapon for a split second that's considered a crime?

    Do you have to inform the officer in Florida? if not, screw the deputy. ******* threatens to shoot him in the back?? nah, he lost my respect right there. I don't say another word from there on in. Now you earn the arrest and overtime.

    Hey JS. The 790 says "The licensee must carry the license, together with valid identification, at all times in which the licensee is in actual possession of a concealed weapon or firearm and must display both the license and proper identification upon demand by a law enforcement officer"

    On the one hand, I have always thought anywhere that makes accidental exposure a crime is just stupid.

    On the other, if I am dealing with an officer while carrying, I would be the first to let him know long before he catches a glimpse. I don't care if the law says I have to or not. What if he had spotted it while the guy was reaching for his wallet, and assumed he was drawing the gun?

    As the instructor (and local LEO) of a recent class I went to put it, if its in the glove compartment I don't need to know about it, if it and your registration are in the glove compartment, things go much smoother if I know about it before you open that door.

    I agree, if you get pulled over and you have a weapon in the vehicle the first words should be, "before we go any further officer, I do want let you know that I m legally carrying a weapos, it located in my xxxxx" that's pretty much how my part of the conversation would go.
