    What do you when you are pulled over in a neighboring state with your home state CHP? Are you required to tell the officer about your CHP? Note that in your home state you are not required to by law. Where can I get some authoritive info on this topic?

    Pretty sure you're never required to tell them just to answer if they ask..

    I was wondering why in the world the California Highway Patrol would be pulling somoeone over in another state, then realized what you meant by CHP. :uh:

    But if your CCW isn't honored in a state where you've been pulled over you don't need to say anything about your CCW?

    Then you'd be illegally carrying a concealed firearm.

    Dumb question, but if your weapon is in the back of your car, that's just consider transporting it, not concealing it, correct?

    Clarification, you don't have a firearm on you. You just have a CCW permit from your home state. Notify or don't notify?

    Any examples? :hs: Just curious, but I do sometimes go over into Colorado and Nevada on some off road trips. Don't feel like getting in trouble with the law if I have a rifle or handun with me.

    It says ON YOU. I was under the impression he is just transporting it..like if I'm going on vacation to Florida I'd drive through several states. I CAN have the gun locked up separate from ammo and it's fine. I CAN NOT have it on me because my permit isn't valid in all the states on the way there.

    If you're carrying you must follow that states laws, not your home state's laws. If you're not carrying, why would you say anything?

    Common sense, let them know, they will be cool with it if you are not otherwise a tard.

    some states vary, if it's the back of a car and you can get to it from the cabin, it's still 'on you '

    .

    This is how reciprocity works. You follow the laws of the state you're in.. including any restrictions on transport and weapon condition code if you're in a state that does not honor your permit.

    so you're supposed to call each state you are travelling through and ask them what all their relevant laws are? :hsugh: we need some federal laws on this to simplify it

    Because if a state requires you to notify an officer, it doesn't matter if you are carrying or not. You must notify him that you have a CHP and whether you are currently carrying or not.

    I got pulled over just before reading this thread. I believe my CHL, and handing to the officer with my DL, has a lot to do with how many warnings I get.

    Got a warning last tuesday night from a highway patrol also....

    Wouldn't they know as soon as they call in your info anyways?
