    If you know you lost it at WalMart (where else?) - I'd ask at customer service. It has your name on it. If it isn't there, give it a day and ask again. If it still hasn't been turned in, call the sheriff's office and ask for a replacement.

    Did you lose your entire wallet as well? What was it doing outside your wallet?

    I'd be concerned, not worried. Call your issuing agency and ask how to obtain a replacement. You probably are not entitled to carry beyond your home until you have a replacement, but make sure because laws are so variable from state to state.

    I would be most worried about not being able to carry until I had a replacement. Replacements are easy to get here. But anyway, I would report the loss of the CHP to the sheriff right away.

    I would be contacting someone to get it canceled or just to let them know what happened. If for some crazy reason the person who found it was to get caught committing a crime and he had your license on him it might open up a keg of worms that you don't need. Unlikely but who knows.

    It would make you feel foolish but I would definitely get in touch with the police and get it on record that it occurred. Always CYA.

    Actually I have 2 copies of my CHP one I keep in my car and the other in my wallet. I was cleaning my car out and put the copy in my pocket. I noticed it was missing after I came home from walmart. My concern is that my info is on it. I think no one can use it?

    Have you checked everywhere in the car to make sure you didn't put it somewhere else temporarily, such as the door pockets or on the dashboard? It would be hard for it to just fall out of your pocket. Also check your wallet in case you put it in there without remembering.

    I would make some type of official Leo report. Depending on your state it may be an incident report to CY backside

    I imagine it would be the same thing as a lost driver's license. Can someone else "use" it? Sure. That doesn't make it legal, nor you responsible. IANAL.

    On the other hand, if you already have the original, I'd just make another copy and press on.

    I'd still check with customer service at Wally World, however.

    I am not sure about VA, but in NC, my CHP is the same number as my driver's license. Hence, they are related documents. There is no photo or anti-conterfeiting technology on my CHP. Basically, my CHP is not valid unless supported by my state DL.

    In fact, the only reason I think they make it a separate document instead of just another certification on the driver's license itself is so you don't have to disclose your status when you need to use your DL as ID to pay with a check, or other such purpose.

    Hope that you somehow manage to get it back.
    I'd really be concerned if I lost mine because it has my S.S.# on it.

    Just talked to the Local LEO and they said not to worry about it because it must be carried with proper photo ID. Thats cool and all, but, Im still concerned about my info on it. It doesn't have my SS# on it. It just has my name and address on it.

    Update: I was able to make a report. Thanks agian for your help fellas:)

    I'm just glad you lost your physical chp card.

    When I read the thread title, I thought you had done something stupid to loose your right to conceal carry.

    So does a phone book or a city directory.

    I wouldn't worry about it.
