I would be concerned that could be considered brandishing a weapon. However, I have done that same thing. I was walking my dogs and stopped to talk to a friend and he wanted to see the gun. We were on his property, but in plain sight and I pulled it out to let him see it. He only looked at it for about 30 seconds. Of course be sure about the kind of person you are showing your gun to before you disarm and hand over your gun.
