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)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.
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.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.
