I dont worry about the revealing of my permit. It's behind my driver's license, nowhere near the credit cards or cash and if they bother to look, that's all they'll be interested in.
I made copies of mine and laminated them too, but I believe my state law says I must carry the original only.
So I made one into a CC badge and sewed the others onto my CC sash
Fortune favors the bold.
Freedom doesn't mean safe, it means free.
The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)
Perhaps another option is to carry a 2nd wallet, which is a decoy wallet in the back pocket. It contains only phony documents and about $3 in chump change. Your CC/CH permit, you can leave it either in a wallet or somewhere in your own person.
If he's got a gun on me I give him the wallet. If he pulls a knife he's the one in trouble now.
I started carrying all my ID in a moneyclip/wallet that I carry in my weak side front pocket. My reasoning is that in Michigan we have to notify and show our CPL if stopped by leo's. I don't want to have to reach past my strong side carry weapon to retrieve my wallet for a nervious rookie LEO. I would rather tell them have a CPL, I am carrying on my right hip, and am now reaching into my left front pocket for my ID.
The up side of this type of wallet is it forces you to carry less junk, and it's better on your back then sitting on a 2 inch thick wallet all day. Ask any chiroprator how many back problems are caused by a thick wallet.
