    going up to Maryland from South Carolina.

    Have a CCW from South Carolina and non-Res. Florida.

    I know I'm valid in both NC and VA and I have to put it away, empty, in the back of the SUV when I get to MD.

    But, what I don't know, if stopped in either NC or VA, do I need to tell the officer that I'm carrying and where the gun is on me and produce my CCW permits?

    I know I have to do that in South Carolina, but not sure of NC or VA.

    Any help? I've been to http://www.handgunlaw.us/
    but it's just not clear when stopped.

    Thanks.

    Not a requirement in VA to tell the officers. But I give my CHP with my DL when stopped. Both times they thanked me for letting them know.

    NC: If you have official interaction with a police officer, you must immediately notify them you have a CHP and have a concealed firearm. You do not need to produce your CHP unless asked.

    ok, I found NC's MUST Inform:

    Must Inform Officer
    From the NC Dept. of Justice Firearms Website
    To possess a concealed handgun in North Carolina, you must:
     Carry your permit and a valid form of identification with you at all times.
     Disclose the fact that you have a valid concealed handgun permit when you are approached or
    addressed by any law enforcement officer in North Carolina.
