    I put my DL and CHP in a plastic holder (for lack of a better term) that I can keep in my front pocket. Since I carry on the same hip that my wallet would reside, I feel that if it is in the front pocket, a mistake in what I am going after is less likely to happen. I have that and a debit card in that pocket, and carry no wallet.

    I wouldn't carry any LEO style ID/badge carrier of any sort to avoid confusion from BG's and GG's.

    I keep my concealed weapons permit concealed, in my wallet.

    I carry my permit in a leather business card holder in a different pocket than my wallet. I think carrying in your wallet is a bad idea due to the following scenario:

    Business you are in gets held up. Crooks collect the wallets of customers:

    1. If I'm carrying at the time, why tip them off if they look in the wallet? If I need to "go to war" I want to do so at a time that gives me the most tactical advantage, not being forced into it by "use it or lose it". There's also the possiblity that the situation wouldn't escalate into a need to engage them, that they'd grab the money and run, except that they panic if they find they have an armed "victim" to deal with.

    2. If I'm not carrying at the time, I don't want to highlight myself for "special attention".

    In either case, if they leave without my needing/being able to engage them, if they have my permit (along with other ID data), and decide to target me later, they're more likely to shoot first if they know I'm likely to be armed.

    Thanks all

    I appreciate all the feedback.
    This is a great, and active site.
    Just what I was looking for.
    Not get off target here, but one more question.
    Anyone have a particular favorite brand/model of holster for concealed carry which fits a 4 inch barrell semi auto? In this case I
    have a HK USP .45. Currently have a Fobus paddle style.

    perhaps a new thread asking what HK USP owners wear?

    I wouldn't get one that fits a 4'' bbld semi-auto, I'd get one specifically for your USP. Great holster makers are: Garrity gunleather, Milt Sparks, Gary Brommeland, Mitch Rosen and more, search around this site for others. Beleive me, you will not be happy if you get a mass produced holster...

    Trust me, if a cop wants to verify that you are legally carrying, you'll need to produce the actual permit, so the tin on your belt is useless for that purpose. unfortunately, it would serve as a cheesy billboard saying "I'm Carrying". Forget the CCW badge idea.

    Yes, the beginning of the holster discussion signals the need for a new thread for that topic...hopefully this one will then slip out of sight...

    I think it is best to keep it in your wallet, then you won't have 2 things to remember to carry with you. Wallet, permit, id; OH, that three already.

    if you put more garbage on your belt, you might as well paint a bullseye on your chest..."please Mr. BG, shoot me first"

    Oh yeah, just to make sure the dead horse is well beaten, lose the badge idea too. Only security guards, mall marines and rookies do this. A CCW should never. Most smarter LEO's wont carry a badge off duty due to the point I made above.

    I tape my DL and CCP back to back and keep them in my wallet. If you live where you are required to tell, the permit is already in their hands. I'm LEO and I appreciate knowing immediately when I stop someone. The application process should rule out the bad guys so I'm glad to see the permits out there myself. When a person tells me, I usually ask what they are carrying, how it shoots, how they like it, what kind of leather they use,etc..
    If it is concealed as it should be, you are the only person who knows it is there. If you are being stopped, what were you doing to make them stop you? Don't do it again. Don't give them a reason to stop you. Let them go after the bad guys instead of being delayed by you.

    What do you do in situations where you need to show ID? I don't think I'd want to flash a CCW permit while cashing a check or going through airline security.
