    Of course you could always go for the warning, assuming you don't get that nervous rookie who's prone to panic atfacks.

    I've heard it's a Bad Idea to use the word "gun" in these situations. Supposedly there's a hopefully small minority of LEOs who might freak out when they hear the "g" word.
    Hours and hours of CQB training with the trigger phrase "gun! gun! gun!" to indicate the perp has a gun, builds some reflexes (which is the whole point of the training)

    The better trained can tune it up or down situationally, some are perpetually riding a bit to too close to the edge because of inexperience or not coping well with years of it etc

    I think that is a pragmatic assessment. If LEO ain't gonna know, LEO don't need to know. But...if LEO is going to see it, it's probably best that he hears about it first.
    This. If I am going to be reaching for my wallet and might show my gun, I am going to tell him before hand. Remember, you want the guy/gal to feel comfortable not go into mag dump mode when they see the gun.
