It depends entirely on the jurisdiction. Some countries such as the USA allow concealed carry wherever an officer goes, subject to normal restrictions on carry (no bars, some venues, no aircraft cabins, etc.). Others do not allow "free carry" for any person, and this is applied to officers of the law as well as civilians. Of course, if your vacation is to a different country, it is almost certain you will not be allowed to carry the weapon at all without many documents to the effect.

every officer is to have an on duty and off duty gun, the officer is allowed to take his off duty gun on vacation, but is only allowed to use it if he/she or someone else is in life treating danger.

It depends on the circumstances, but normally say, "I have a permit, and I have a legally concealed weapon" or something very close to that. At that point, the officer will usually tell you what to do at that point. Around here, officers usually say something like, "Ok, no problem." If the concealed weapon is a gun, don't use the term "gun."

All weapons must be reported to the flight crew through the proper persons.
