spacecoast, ak103k, et al... do what you want. As you say, it's your option.
As far as the "big boy" thing goes, give me a break.
My CCW instructor for my first license, in Florida, recommended presenting the officer with DL and CCW, even though it isn't "required" in Florida.
LEO friends of mine have recommended the same.
Massad Ayoob recommends the same. (Told me so in person, in his class.)
So, while there may be some out there who are getting their big boy jollies, I'm just following the advice given me by people whose opinions I respect. So far, it has worked quite well, in my experience and in the experiences of those I know.
YMMV. But cut the BS psychological evaluations, thanks.
