The current WA County Sheriffs Office Newsletter has the following article. I know some have different opinion on this so I am only sharing the article. Disclosing Your Concealed Weapon During a Traffic Stop During a traffic stop, how would deputies like a CHL holder to advise them they are carrying a weapon? When the deputy approaches your vehicle, simply introduce yourself and tell them that you are a concealed handgun license holder and that you have your weapon with you. (You can also present your CHL with your identification.) It is helpful to tell the deputy where the gun is, but do not to pull the weapon out unless you are asked or directed to do so. While none of this is a legal requirement, this is how our deputies would like motorists to respond to avoid surprises and to ensure the safety of everyone involved.
