I was carrying and there were no postings to tell me that they didn't allow weapons onsite. As I was performing my work the LEO came up to me and was talking to me about what I was doing and asked me some questions about his home computer. After we talked I left and never said a word to him about the fact that I was a CCW holder and that I was carrying my firearm.

Would you have notified the LEO in that situation or one like it?

The answer is simply NO. Two men facing each other talking about kindred subject of interest. Leave it at that.

I would do what a state law dictates. But if stoped or in a check point in any state i will show it as it should come up on the computer.

In Texas, your CHL is tied to your driver's license, not your vehicle tags. We are required to inform LEO if they approach us in an official capcity, but the state dropped the penalty for not doing so. Just striking up a conversation would not be considered an official capacity.

NO!!!

I'm not sure where you live but the law in Arkansas states, §5-73-315. Possession of license — Identification of licensee.
(a) Any licensee possessing a valid license issued pursuant to this subchapter may carry a concealed handgun.
(b) The licensee shall:
(1) Carry the license, together with valid identification, at any time when the licensee is carrying a concealed handgun; and
(2) Display both the license and proper identification upon demand by a law enforcement officer.
Otherwise the idea of CCWP is to keep it concealed to the extent that no knowledge (beyond your own) of a weapon exists even to LEO. Once again, your state/local statutes/ordinances dictate the protocol.

No. If it's an enforcement situation and asked for ID, then I'll present. Otherwise, all it would do is increase stress.

No I would not have mentioned it. And I am sure you being a computer technician even if he would have detected it being CCW. The conversation would have probably been more likely on the brand and caliber than a permit. I am sure that he would probably have assumed you had a permit due to your occupation and your travels. Not all of us were ego trippin AH's throughout our carrier. And I think they (AH's) are still in the minority in our profession and especialy after you get by the Rookie syndrome! Common sense with the citizens is the key! The moral of the story, treat people how you would expect to be treated! But there was not need to advise you had a CCW unless there was a conversation to that effect.
