It has been a while since I took the class so I am unsure if there is a law that requires telling if I am carrying to an LEO. I know whenever they have run me, and I was not carrying, the first question they asked when they came back is if I was armed. Then mentioned that my CHL showed up when they ran me. I was not carrying so I did not volenteer the info at the time. The cop also asked why in the world I was not carrying when I have a liscense to do so.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.
