Cops don't like surprises and some don't think civilians have a right to carry so you never know which one you'll get. Just be honest and do what they say and respect shall be given. What ever you do don't go on a rant about the 2nd amendment or the cops gonna get really pissed off.

Keep your cool inform them immediately an you will be fine.

B: Yes you must have your card on you any time you carry consealed.

YES, you a required by law!!!!!! To inform them you have a loaded forearm. It doesn't matter where you are, when you are stopped by law enforcement, for the time being, you are under arrest, until they say you are free to go!!!! No if and or buts!!!!!

I recently saw a video on YouTube by Massad Ayoob on how to handle a traffic stop while carrying. One thing that made sense to me, is he said do not say the word gun. Simply hand the card and say "I'm carrying ". His rational is that if there is another officer coming up on the passenger side, it may not be good if they hear the word gun. Makes sense to me.

REDMIST89, I have a few questions for you or any other PA resident who can answer. What proof (if any) do you need to show that the firearm was obtained legally? I received my Glock as a gift from my father, which I believe is an exception to the FFL transfer laws. Is that correct? What did your local sheriff charge you? Do you have to take the firearm with you (unloaded or course)?

BTW I am also a member over @ PAFOA. Thanks!

This varies by county, which I find odd. I obtained my permit in Philadelphia, my wife got hers in Montgomery county. I never had to prove ownership of any firearms but, she had to give the Montgomery county sheriff's office a photo and serial number of hers. I am guessing that every county has laws and restrictions of their own.

That is strange. Considering Philly's stance on firearms you would think you would have to jump through hoops. What's your favorite gun shop in the area? I'm in Philly quite often.

I am from Philadelphia and some of my favorite shops and ranges are right out of the city. French Creek Outfitters, targetmasters, and millers sporting goods!

Millers is fav mom and pop shop and French Creek has a great 10 lane range.

Weather its the law or not if I'm pulled over I'm telling the officer I'm carrying lol
