For full disclosure, officer, I've got a gun

Most CHL/LEO contacts are positive, how about yours? Bloopers are fun, but no names please, if it will cause a LEO problems!

In this case, the OP is facing a potentially dangerous situation and there is a (small) possibility that he might actually need to use his weapon. Given that possibility, if it was me, I would definitely want to make sure the officer was not shocked by the sight of my gun.


I think that this is pretty close to where I would land as well. If we're all in this thing together, I can envision times like this when I would be happy to communicate to the officers that I am a piece of the equation they are working, but not a piece to surprise them later. While I think that LEO is an arm of the government to be regulated and kept in check, I also don't think it is healthy to see them as only adversarial. Paraphrasing you, three good guys fixing to enter a shed where there is a slight chance it could go south (hence the request for help), plenty of communication is a good thing for all involved.
