The police are not supposed to be stopping you without at least RAS per Terry v Ohio. What you do based on this is up to you and your decisions (as always) need to be based on a sufficient legal education. Your decisions will have consequences and you need to be prepared for this.-If a LEO stops me and asks to see my Carry Permit, I've read that unless I've been suspected of commiting a crime I don't have to show them? Is that true?
You can do whatever you want to do.-Can I choose to oblige to their request and show them my permit, is there any downside to this?
http://forum.opencarry.org/forums/sh...a-traffic-stop-This one is more a personal preference, but If you get pulled over for a traffic violation, do you guys inform the officer once he comes up to your window that you just want to let them know you have a CT state carry permit, and have a loaded firearm on your person? From what I've been told this is up to your judgement, though one guy told me I will get arrested and go to jail if I tell a state trooper that.....Last I checked the idea was to make the officer as comfortable as you can so he might go easier on you and let you off with a warning
That 'one guy', never listen to him again.
No. There is no law or magic piece of paper that makes carrying unconcealed anymore legal that it already is.-Finally, a lot of times my firearm is exposed because the clothing I wear isn't very baggy, and sometimes my shirt rides up and gets caught behind my holster. As to avoid any issues with LEO's, is there something I should print out and carry with my? Like a section of the state statute?
