    Is it a violation?

    If I go for a walk around the block and have my gun on me is it a violation if I forgot my wallet that contains my permit? I believe if you carry you must have the permit on your person. Is this correct?

    Thanks in advance.

    It varies by State, some yes, some no.

    I never carry without my permit(s) on me.

    I don’t know about Florida but here in North Carolina it would be a violation since the law states that the permit and photo ID must be carried while armed.

    You should check your state laws, but I believe in Florida it is a violation. IIRC you can get like a $25 ticket. But you definitely want confirmation from the state. Internet legal advice is worth what you pay for it.

    I never carry without my permit. If I need proof, then I have it on me.

    In Florida, you must have your permit on your person if you are carrying. However, failing to have the permit is a noncriminal offense carrying a $25 fine.

    The licensee must carry the license, together with valid identification, at all times in which the licensee is in actual possession of a concealed weapon or firearm and must display both the license and proper identification upon demand by a law enforcement officer. Violations of the provisions of this subsection shall constitute a noncriminal violation with a penalty of $25, payable to the clerk of the court.

    However, the probability is that the officer will take possession of the gun until you retrieve and present the permit. He or she might decide to take possession of you until that time as well.

    If I've forgotten my wallet I've forgotten my gun.

    It's never the other way around. It's been a daily habit to have my wallet in my pocket.


    ....but to answer your question, just don't do it. Carry both or carry none.

    In FL you do need to have your permit on your person, but depending upon the reason for the conversation with LE, you may not even be asked for your permit...I'm just sayin'...

    Stay armed...Don't leave home without your permit or gun...Stay safe!

    I always wondered why no one ever thought of putting a place on your holster to hold you CC liscense... "If you got the holster you have the gun"... I know some have mutiple set ups but it seems like it would be a nice option... Might be alittle difficult if you had to display your liscense, but I would think it's realistic...

    License on holster

    I would think that keeping your license in your holster might not be a good idea. Law enforcement might want to see your license but might NOT want you to mess around with your gun before they've had a chance to run it all.

    Just my thoughts though.

    I guess I don't understand the thinking with questions like this. How is it that you think you can remember to carry a pistol, but can't remember to carry your wallet?
