Bob is legally carrying his handgun. He walks into a bar (leaves his gun in his car), has a couple, and leaves (reholstering his gun). A cop pulls him over and has him blow. He blows a .04 and shows no signs of impairment. Should he be arrested?

You need to specify the state and jurisdiction this occurred in. Laws vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

Of course not, as he hasn't harmed anyone.

Of course if the officer is a young kid on the force who hasn't learned that borderline situations typically result in more paperwork and court time, he will probably be a prick and arrest him.

Does current law anywhere say yes?

In Texas, it's officer's discretion. You can blow a .01, show no signs of impairment, and be arrested for carrying while intoxicated. The reason is "intoxicated" is not defined anywhere in the statute.

Really? The fact that they didn't define "intoxicated" is really stupid.

I agree. They may not have intended it that way, but laws like this become the kind of stuff that cops use to put away people that piss them off.

I think it should be the legal limit for driving.

Absolutely not. If you're not drunk, you're not drunk.
