So, how do you guys do it? I'm mostly thinking of on a traffic stop. Do you come straight out with 'I'm a cop', do you try to slide you ID with your license, try something coy like 'my insurance is in the glove box, but my off duty firearm is in there, too', or something else.
Most of the time I've stopped other cops, I either knew them, or they made sure I saw their badge when they were getting their license (and they came across as jerks). I'm going on a road trip and, if I get stopped, basically want to know how to say it without coming across as a d---, haha. I'm not going to be driving crazy or anything, but as we all know, sometimes you just don't pay attention to those weird signs with numbers on them.
