Considering that CCW/CHL/LTC holders are statistically much more law abiding than most the courtesy -- professional or otherwise -- is justified IMO.  OTOH, there are also cops like this one:

She might wear the uniform, but she's no LEO in my opinion  :coffee.

Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.

    Agreed.  Mr. Suprynowicz is on target - as always.

    An odd thing I noticed over the years is that having a CHL and mentioning it calmly and intelligently during a traffic stop seems to result in an unusually high percentage of verbal or written warnings vs actual citations. The interactions also seem to be much more congenial that that those reported by most non-CHL holders.
    Almost as if LEOs were extending a bit more benefit of the doubt and perhaps a touch of what would otherwise be called professional courtesy?

    Being courteous to an officer in any situation will get you a lot of leeway in most situations.

    No doubt.
    Just that I noticed a slightly....I don't know....warmer(?) response in interactions with LEOs after I obtained a CHL. 
    I hadn't really had any poor encounters prior to that, just that things seemed a bit friendlier after getting the CHL.
