Excuse my ignorance, but you don't get a card where you live? Just a piece of paper?

I made copies of mine put one in my wallet one in car glove box and keep orignal at home that way u can make more copies as needed yes have it with u at all times
My Arkansas CCL is the same size as my DL's and it's a hard copy. If I'm carrying and don't have my CCL, it's a big NO-NO. An online class for a CCL, apparently there wasn't no test to see if you read anything and trying to be cheap with something this serious.

shrink it and have the smaller version notarized and laminated.
check if that is legal 1st
Be aware, be deliberate in your actions and be accurate.
Why do those elected to positions of power than work so hard
to deny those same opportunities to the same people who empowered them
The permit number is just the number of your NICS check so upon renewal (5years) it will change anyway.
Additional copies as noted above is a good idea.
There's been talk of people making a reduced copy and laminating that, but that may or may not be kosher in the eyes of the law.
As stated, I keep mine folded up in a plastic sleeve in my wallet, it's well over a year old and holding up well, I still have my pre-2011 permit in there as well and it's still in pretty good shape.
Your mileage may vary.
The NRA Basic Pistol Course which is the "default" expected training across most of the country doesn't touch on the law at all so I don't think we can legitimately give grief on the content of an on-line "safety" course that may or may not have been Iowa specific.

Here in Plymouth county, we get the paper that JD showed, but for an extra five bucks, we also get a hard, driver's license size card complete with picture. Not a bad deal. It will survive a trip through the washer and dryer. I'm pretty sure we are supposed to have the permit on us when we carry. Not positive and don't care, as it is in the wallet and ALWAYS is with me, law or not.
Webster County gives the same size paper and the sheriff's department told me that I could go to office max and have it reduced and laminated so it will last longer. I will also scan it to my pc to keep a copy and I have a small laminating machine that I figured I could try making extra with just so I can keep them in several places.
