The difference is actually seeing the permit as opposed to wondering whether you're telling the truth. Criminals will often say anything during a traffic stop.
Personally, I'd rather deal with a calm officer than a nervous one.
I've been stopped once while carrying......headed north on McArthur early one chilly Sat. morning at dark thirty just past the river bridge doing about 10 over the limit.
Saw lights come on in the rear view mirror and I knew I was justifiably had.....rolled down the window and put both hands on the wheel in plain sight and waited for her to get to me.
Right, wrong or indifferent it was my habit to put my wallet and carry gun in my lunchbox and have it sitting on the passenger seat when going to work....when she told me that she wanted to see my license and registration I told her that I had a license to carry and that my carry license, drivers license and gun were all in my lunchbox and not wanting for her to see my gun and get nervous when opening my lunchbox I ask her how she wanted to proceed.
With one hand now on her holstered Glock she ask me to hand her my closed lunchbox through the window and unlock the rear doors if they weren't already I did......she took my lunchbox, stepped to the rear passenger door and opened it, sat it on the seat, opened it, took out my wallet, closed the lunchbox, left it in the backseat and closed the door then handed me my wallet and ask me to get my carry and drivers license out and then ask me to get out and walk to the rear of the vehicle while she called in my tag.
When she finished calling in she handed me back my licenses and let me off with just a warning and said, "thank you for informing me that you had a firearm."
I can only imagine how things might have gone if I'd have just unthinkingly opened my lunchbox and reached in for my wallet and she'd have seen my handgun without me informing her.
If ever stopped again the first thing I will tell the officer, as I did that time, is that there is a firearm in the vehicle.
No, the new carry law has nothing to do with it.So what are you trying to say? Now that since we went permit-less, that every cop in Oklahoma is going to all the sudden be all freaked out wondering whether the person they have pulled over has a gun or not...lol?
KS MO and AR are all OK reciprocity states. all the green is.
