See?...I was thinking along the same lines...but how is THAT handled?...lol
No one can say for sure what the "right" way is, as right will be in the opinion of the officer you have not been pulled over by yet.
Basically it's a bad idea for reasons already posted as well as... draw from a concealed rig on body while seated and belted in a vehicle is not optimal.
But if one were determined to do it anyway...
i'd guess, wait till officer approaches car, hand on wheel, window down, radio off, interior light on if dark outside.
Wait for him to start the conversation....at any point he asks you to get out... you answer Yes sir, how would you like me to handle my firearm? .. Not gun, not weapon, and don't start it out with concealed anything. the LEO will of course ask you where it's at.. Sir, in accordance with the law, it is concealed, ... under my (insert where it's at)
At that point, you'll get calm directions what to do, or something else from an officer that does not agree that MPA allows you to conceal said weapon on your person.
And none of that address what happens if your not able to speak,, hurt, scared, or have several weapons and shouting officers giving you direct and perhaps conflicting directions( who knows, maybe you match the description of a guy that just shot a gas station attendant, or Sheriff. )
To each his own, do what works for you.. Me?? I can draw my vehicle firearm from it's place of concealment inside either of my Mustangs or truck faster than i ever could in my on body carry rigs.
