I just traveled through Iowa, Kansas, and Nebraska on my way to and from a week in Texas. I was traveling alone late at night and since I have a permit to carry here in South Dakota thought about bringing my 9 mm along. I was disappointed to find that those states do not honor my permit, but my state honors theirs. I left my gun at home. I would have felt a lot more comfortable walking into public bathrooms at 2 am if I was packing.

Though I have several bigger caliber pistols in my truck and thoughout my house, I love carrying my semi-auto Walther P22. Small, dependable and very accurate. Though the company is owned by Smith & Wesson, Walthers are still made in Germany.
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

The one time I didn't it was a very courteous traffic stop afterwords. Better just to notify them, and to me it shows you have a background check, are somewhat a good citizen and you are not hiding the fact that you have a gun.

Actually, I talked to someone more in the know than me today and it is law to make the officer aware of you CWP. The first time you don't tell them, you get a slap on the wrist. The second time, you go to court and the third time your permit gets yanked and you can never get it back.
As for PA, nothing was conveyed to me through two CWP renewals that you MUST bare all when pulled over. If they ask, I will answer honestly. But I do not volunteer information. I also carry medical devices that require a phyisicans' supervision. I don't yell out I'm a doctor, show him my license, and start pulling out controlled substances from my bag. They don't really care.
By the way, a dear friend who is now a 30 yr retired officer used to crack us up by classifying everyone as a cop, a floater, or a sinker. I was honored to be in the "floater" category. You don't want to be a sinker!
