Ok, say for some reason someone gets arrested or otherwise have an encounter with police, not doing anything wrong or at least nothing violent. What should they do concerning their CCW? If you don't say anything and they pat you down and find it, I'm afraid they'd become unneccessarily violent. But if you announce that you have a gun, they could see that as a threat. Can you expect that if you're being compliant they'll listen as you explain that you're legally carrying? After they presumably take it from you, and then you're found to have done nothing wrong, how do you get it back? I for one would be unhappy about my multi-hundred dollar custom pistol being tossed around and stored in poor conditions.
