I give the leo my ccw permit when I hand over my license and insurance. They'll usually see a third card and ask what it is, I tell them its a conceal carry permit. They then ask where the weapon is located, I tell them. They then usually let me keep it on me or one time he asked me to hand it to him and he set it on the roof of my truck. When that happened I handed it to him in the holster and told him to be careful because there is one in the chamber. Most of the time I have found that if you're carrying legally, tell the officer you have a gun on you and be honest and respectful he doesn't even worry about it. I do have my cc permit from a different state so local cops don't know I have it when they run my tags or license. I tell them anyway because unless you get some young hotheaded cop who thinks he's better than you because he has a badge they treat you with the same respect you give them. In turn I give them the same amount of respect they give me.

I think many people assume that because LEOs carry a weapon as part of their job that they are automatically pro gun or "gun" people" but in my personal experience not so much. You stand at least a good a chance of encountering an officer who might be a bit paranoid or nervous why take the chance? Be courteous give him exactly what he asked for and be on your way. I CC always and never leave a firearm on the seat or console IMO its don't ask don't tell. I have never been searched or even asked to get out of the vehicle so why would there be a problem?

I don't like looking at the business end of a loaded firearm. Especially with some jumpy police officer holding it. You don't know what has happened to that officer that was never reported that might cause him to pull the trigger a little quicker. It's better to defuse the situation in the best way you can.

Another thing that happens that really didn't come to my mind, especially in rural areas. The officer follows you. He is trying to run your tag and find out who you are. The system is delayed or he is getting a poor signal. The officer is approaching you blind.

I was standing in front of the sheriffs office. A deputy was trying to pull up information. I finished a cigarette and was ready to settle in for a nap before the information came up. If that happens in the parking lot at the sheriffs department, you know the system is dead quite often out in the field.
In ohio We're not allowed to have a gun out in the open, not laying on the seat and will definitely loose our CCW if we were to put it on the dash. my husbands CCW instructor told a story of one of his ex-students did this and got his CCW revoked.

I need to invest in a car holster. The biggest reason I lay the gun on the seat is I can't draw the weapon from a holster. It's real hard to prevent a car jacking when you can't get your gun until you are out of the vehicle. Before I got my concealed carry permit I rode around with a 30/30 on the dash. I hated that rifle until I saw how well it rode on the dash.
