    Yeah, I think you're right. It just seems like some folks need their thinking pushed a little to get them going!

    Look at me, loooook at MEEEE. I have a permit to carry a GUN!

    Sheesh some people, like this woman, need to grow up.

    People who see my CPL:
    LE if stopped
    LE when registering my pistol
    my gun dealer when doing paperwork

    The one time I showed it to someone not on the list was yesterday when I needed two forms of picture ID for a civil service exam. I lost my school ID, so I had to use my CPL or I couldn't take the exam. I hated doing that but the woman was cool about it, even said her and her husband have one too.

    Unless he really wanted a new gun. It he doesn't know you have a gun he may just say stick'em up. If he does know he may shoot first then say thanks for the new gun.

    I used mine as secondary ID at a posted no-guns certification testing center. The next time I went, it wasn't posted.

    Here in Missouri we have the choice of having our endorsement on an ID or our drivers license. Like many of you I prefer to keep my carry status as discreet as possible. So I had the endorsement put an ID and it stays tucked away from view.

    I had to use my Texas CHL at a bank once to cash a check as they needed 2 forms of picture ID.

    I worked at sears and had an tiny old lady use hers to show ID when filling out a credit ap. I thought it was hilarious, never saw it coming.

    When I was working retail, I had people use both their police ID and CHLs. At the returns desk, a DL# is required so anything besides a state ID or DL wasn't valid.

    Never thought it was a great idea to use a CHL as your ID though.

    While it's possible that could happen, it's highly unlikely, guns don't make much money on the street and if the skell has a working gun, it's doubtful they will risk a murder charge (or attempted murder charge) for what may score them nothing more then a jennings or hipoint.
