Do I have to unload it?
Can he take the gun from my holster?
Can I just say no sir, i'm not doing anything wrong?
What if he says I have to conceal it or put it away.
What am I supposed to do! I don't wanna give my gun to a cop. I'm Allowed to carry. Is there a law saying for a cops safety he can take it from you during questioning.
Do I have to show ID? Do I have to let him run the gun serial number? Can I just say i'm in a hurry right now sorry I don't have time.

Basically, my response is simple: DO NOT in any circumstance treat an encounter with LEO as a Deadly Force Threat. If you have to, argue with the judge with a Lawyer at your side, NOT with the cop with your Firearm at your side (or worse, drawn). You WILL lose, even if it turns out later that you were in the right. I'd rather tell my wife I have to sue the police than have the police tell my wife I am dead cause I was stupid enough to resist a duly appointed officer of the law over my gun.
I have NO interest in giving up my gun to ANYONE, ANYTIME, but even if I am not breaking any law, and the LEO is, I know better than to start a gunfight with a cop.
