It's in my wallet.
As for a BG asking for my wallet, my wallet is right here...on my strong side. Let me get that for you.
"Historical examination of the right to bear arms, from English antecedents to the drafting of the Second Amendment, bears proof that the right to bear arms has consistently been, and should still be, construed as an individual right." -- U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings, Re: U.S. vs Emerson (1999)

Four "if"s and a "might" are a bit beyond my range of speculation. I see lots of other folks are having fun with it, tho.
As far as where my permit is, I've got a slim, double-sided credit card wallet (I can't stand bulky wallets in my pockets, especially if I'm wearing a suit). My credit/debit cards are staggered on one side, and my DL, auto insurance card, and CC permit are on the other side, one behind the other in that order. If I ever get pulled over, all three are right there and get handed over to the LEO. And if just need to pull my DL at the store or something, I can do so without leaving my CC permit exposed because I've still got the auto insurance card in front of it. Hasn't caused me a problem yet.
As for the holdup situation being discussed, in my mind the idea is to take my wallet out and lob it to the BG. While his eyes and hands are focused on catching his bounty it buys me a couple clean seconds to draw and get my rounds off. I imagine this would be safer for me than turning it into a Western quick-draw style duel while his eyes are focused on my person.

I'm an old guy and tired of all the dirtbag stuff going on all around us.
My first inclination is to be sure to strengthen the SA, and stay away from 'iffy' situations, if possible.
That said, I don't need no stinkin' trick wallet. If you catch me off guard and get my wallet, good for you. If you get my wallet, and shoot me, you win...that's life!
If I shoot your arse (several times) good for me. You'll be one less dirtbag in the world, and I will go home that night and enjoy my wife, a sandwich, a cold beer with some hot tub time, and a movie...that's life, too!
I'm going to stay armed, trust no one, stay in yellow when out in public, and avoid obvious places and times that may spell trouble. My head is always on a swivel.
I think that I have the correct mindset for survival in this complicated world..."It is what it is, I do what I do, and let the pieces fall where they may."
Proverbs 27:12 says: “The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.”

I would hope they would take time for a closer look at the contents of my wallet thus giving me the advantage and a opportunity to draw and fire on them. But i think most crooks like to grab and run..Later on he may find your ccw id and maybe count his blessings he survived. But here its the law to present your ccw id when asked by an LEO so in the wallet it stays..
I agree with gasmitty. There are too many thread authors who are overthinking an awful lot of things. Yes it is good to be prepared, but if I took a great many of the suggestions or concerns to heart, it would be hours before I ever got out of my house, if that. It is nice to be prepared but you have to live your life everyday without being totally paranoid about every little thing that you can dream up. I am sure that many of these threads are the result of fertile minds and they are helpful to read and take into account but it does get to the point that you need a checklist before you walk out the door. Preparation is important but yada yada yada.
