Ask any law enforcment officer about keeping your hands visible when they know your armed, and each one will tell you, in their own way, why this is important. They all have been trained to be aware of hands. However, in real life, some have experienced actual situations where a person has tried to hurt them in some way with a blade, gun, or something else. These officers are more concerned about a persons hands than other officers.
In the states where CCW training is required, most states point this area out to CCW students. Some remember what they were taught, and some don't. Some Legally Armed Citizens say " I keep my CCW License or Permit in my wallet". I tell the officer that I am Legally Armed, and when asked, I produce my CCW License / Permit from my wallet." To get their CCW License / Permit, they had to dig into their pants or purse to get it. Lets consider that this officer has just come from a homicide scene, or where a shooting has taken place. The officer is not in the same mood as he was when he left his home. His level of stress is higher than usual. He wants to make it home tonight. In the moning if he had to pull his gun on the job, he probably had his finger on the outside of the frame. Now, after seeing the homicide or the victims of the shooting, his finger might be inside the trigger guard. He is most concerned about his safety. Some will disagree with these statements, however in real life situations, this is what happens.
As a Legally Armed Citizen, you should make sure that in every situation, you are as safe as possible when your armed. This is especially true if you have been involved in a shooting incident, or where you had to draw your pistol for some reason. Lets face it, when the law arrives on the scene, they already know there is a gun or multiple guns present at the scene. Their stress level is high. They do not know who is the good guy or bad guy.
