    Question Notification to Police Officer During Traffic Stop

    In Texas, during a routine traffic stop, does a holder of a valid CHL (EVEN THOUGH NOT CARRYING AT THE TIME OF THE TRAFFIC STOP) have an obligation to advise the officer that the driver has a CHL and is currently not carrying ? THANKS.

    No....but when they run you, they're gonna KNOW you've got one, so why not let 'em know an' make the stress levels lower for everyone? I ALWAYS advise that I've got one, and whether I'm carryin' or not. They DO appreciate it - as YOU would if the roles were reversed.

    Thanks Texas Redneck. I am a former peace officer and that was my thought, but thought I'd ask.

    I don't think that is required any longer. It once was but since lawful, concealed carrying of a handgun in your automobile, if you are of age, not prohibited from firearm ownership was passed, I believe revealing such was dropped. And concealed in the car meaning out of sight, in the console, glove compartment or covered with something. I don't know but if it's concealed on your body and you get out of the car, perhaps that is illegal unless you possess a CHL ?

    If you don't have a CHL and have a gun on your person and step out of the car, you ARE guilty of carrying without a license. Even if you're carrying without a license (which, as noted, is no longer required), it's simply courtesy. Required? Nope - absolutely not. But I tell 'em. We all leave happier.

    I am always carrying on a non Res out of state license and have only been stopped once. He didn't ask and I didn't tell. He wanted to know where I was coming and going and what I was doing. I politely told him it was none of his business and please write me a ticket. If not I'd like to be on my way.

    Also keep your hands on the steering wheel and not in your pockets or you lap. I am told that Police offices like it when they can see where your hands are when they walk up a car.
