I live in WV. Our permit is literally a certificate with a little gold seal. For wallet carry you get a reduced photocopy of this, laminated. Now, in PA I know the permits look more like a driver's license; they have a photo on the card. The WV permit just says that you have to carry state issued photo ID with the permit. Now, normally this doesn't bother me at all. In a few months I'll be going on vacation in NC. So long as I stay out of Maryland my permit is valid for the whole trip.
Now, my concern is that the further I get away from WV, the more of a chance that a LEO will look at my permit and think I just photoshopped at my desk. Anyone else ever wonder about this or have any experiences? I don't know what any other permits look like outside of WV and PA, so maybe a lot of places don't have driver's license-like permits with photos.
