For anyone who has friends who are police officers, ASK THEM how they and their fellow officers prefer you to behave when you get pulled over.
Having a LEO as a father, his advice (from decades ago) was to get out of the car, walk to the rear fender, and stand quietly with your hands where the officer can see them; especially if you are the only one in the car.

This may be partly hijacking the thread, but why would a person who is carrying legally not go ahead and inform the officer that he was?
Are you a bad guy going to shoot a cop? Why then introduce an extra fear for the cop when it is totally unnecessary?
"I believe that people have a right to decide their own destinies; people own themselves. I also believe that, in a democracy, government exists because (and only so long as) individual citizens give it a 'temporary license to exist'—in exchange for a promise that it will behave itself. In a democracy, you own the government—it doesn't own you."- Frank Zappa
