I went by a range I hadn't visited yet to check it out...and to see what all they offered (6 indoor 50 yard tunnels, gunsmith, store, 5 inhouse instructors, a nice place when they finish it). A few Border Patrol guys were there to requalify (they do quarterly) and an OD LEO as well. I was packing and let them know during the conversation, even tho technically I didn't need to I later found out. Seems I am obligated to only when approached in an official LE capacity...but they all thanked me and that they appreciated me letting them know. :)

To be honest there's no need to go around testing your "cop fu". They don't care and you come across as some hair trigger "special rainbow six operator":rolleyes:

Duh you're at a pistol range so you might have a CHL permit. I don't act any different around cops when I carry. They don't need to know unless it's an official capacity.

All our local cops know that I carry, but not one of them has ever mentioned that fact to me. I live in a gun-friendly environment. I can pull an M4 out of the trunk of my car, on the courthouse square, and nobody bats an eye. :)

We are not required to notify the police even if pulled over but I've never had to worry about that. I did walk into a police station for buisiness once and told them I was carrying. The officer was rather unconcerned and didn't seem to care.

Nice of you to tell them, I guess. I just don't understand why you felt the need to though. The scenario is: guy at a gun range; bag full of guns/ammo/stuff; one could assume that many, if not most, of the patrons are carrying.

When I go to my local range and pull out my concealed weapon, I never give it a thought despite the fact that cops are often there.

Pride, maybe? Or giddyness? I can't figure out why either.
