Thanks for your service.I was on the streets for 10+ years and always appreciated it when someone said they were carrying. I was recently pulled over in Kansas doing 9 mph over by a deputy. I kept my hands on the wheel and informed him that I was carrying and he said no problem, thanks for letting me know. The adage of it is better to beg for forgiveness than to ask for permission doesn't work if you're stopped and they find a firearm on you or in the vehicle. Do the smart thing and tell them up front.
