Check wants and warrants on the driver and car. Verify that he is still employed. Ask him if he has any patches to trade.

citizens can carry concealed in our state, and we have reciprocity with so many other states that I can't keep track of which states CHL holders can carry legally here. State law is seemingly clear that out-of-stae officers can't carry, but the state AG is kind of vague. Besides, anyone who is "travelling" in our state, which is defined by case law and your County Atorney, can carry. Let him go, and it would not be cutting him any kind of special break, either.

Run driver, tag, and verify his ID. Tell him to have a nice day. Same goes for an out of state citizen who has a CCW in his state.

Unlikely, I rarely do car stops and generally avoid stopping out of state vehicles.
You come to find out that the person in side is a fellow LEO, but he is also carry a conceled pistol on him.

Even if he told me he was a cop that doesnt mean i would find out about the gun. I avoid asking question I dont want to hear the answers to.
What would you do, let it slide or take the person into custody?

In my state illegal CCW is a misdemeanor, we cite and release in the field. I regularly warn people about misdemeanors rather than arrest/cite. I would warn him.

Check for wants/warrants. Get ID from department, call department to verify employment, have a nice day, I'm clear.

This is a no brainer. In the South, we EXPECT LEO's to carry all the time and be ready to protect our loved ones. From out of State? SO WHAT , he is still a Citizen and a Brother Officer.

What Sukebe said, except I get his card, name and badge, whatever, so that I am ever in his neck of the woods, he can return the courtesy. Cops can "network" too.

Same answer as everyone else. Texas has so many concealed carry compacts with other states it would be a full time study to keep up with it all. However, I'd like to point out, that since becoming a cop here (1988) I have yet to pull over an officer. Officer's kids are a different story. I have charged them with UCW before with dad's blessing.

Para069 hit it right on the head.

Ditto. Be safe brother.

Another vote for Para069. And if he's not carrying, offer him one of mine while he's in town.

A buddy of mine is a Reserve for a So Cal PD. He was in the Central Florida on the Gulf Coast, helping a local PD with some police motorcycle issues. They gave him a Glock, ammo, spare mags and a holster when they found out he had left his carry gun at home. The question? I gave 'em directions to Disneyland. [:D]
