I think its a courtesy/common sense thing, surprises during a traffic stop are something to be avoided. Back before the CHL days we knew folks were carrying but in most cases if they weren't causing problems we didn't want to know about it. I knew several upstanding citizens who carried on a regular basis. Last I heard the travelling provision was a defense to prosecution and a poor excuse for not getting a license. I got my CHL while still a peace officer and learned more about carry laws in CHL class than most cops did @ the time.
