I have a super thin bi-fold leather money clip...money in the clip and only four other items...driver's license, firearm's license, one credit card, and my BC/BS card...that's all...like I said, very thin!
Stay armed...use a thin wallet...stay safe!

I carry an all-ett wallet. They are VERY Thin but I still carry my CDL & CHL in an ID Badge Holder and Lanyard around my neck under my shirt , you can get at Office Max. I carry an extra wallet with a couple of bucks and just junk to fill it up as a throw down wallet. My good wallet I carry in another pocket. In case that wallet is stolen, I STILL have my CDL and CHL .

In a tactical ID case that is also bullet proof and can be expanded to cover my vital areas. I keep the whole thing on my belt right next to my CCW badge. That way the LEO knows right off that I am a good guy. It also aides me when I have to make citizens arrests of jay walkers and the like!
Seriously though, it is in my wallet, right behind my DL. No big deal. The one time I have had any interaction with the police, I did not inform him as TN is not a state that it is required. So, it went fine.

Carry permit is in my wallet under my departmental id. Depending on where I am going and the states policy on informing a leo, I will hand it to the officer with my dl.
One more step and it's on!

When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.

Those open carrying, which I believe in, are going to be targeted right away. Unfortunately, a lot of what happens to these guys depends on how they act to LEOs. If they cop an attitude, it's automatic that they'll be arrested. Gotta be cool at all times. There's LEOs in here reading our posts. I want them to know that obeying their instructions is first and foremost. If people would just do that, it would, not only make their jobs easier, but it would save a lot of lives.

If we get stopped here in Texas and the officer ask for your DL you are required to hand him your CHL(CCL) as well. So, I keep them together in my wallet at all times. I have been pulled over for a tail light out and I gave the officer both forms of indentification and I had no problems. He came back to the truck and sent me on my way.

Great thread; I now have a "ramp pass" setup in my wallet thanks to an earlier suggestion. (I also keep my insurance/ veh. registration in the passenger-side sun visor now so there will never be a "digging around in the glovebox" moment.)

I haven't had any LE experiences either way and aim to keep it that way. I always carry my GFL behind my DL. In GA, you have to have your GFL with you at all times. You'd be charged with unlawful carrying a firearm as a license holder if you were caught without it.

In my wallet behind my drivers license.

In my wallet, but not near my driver's license. If I have to give ID to a cop, I dont want them to spot the LTC.... Of course I *could* show it at my discresion, but I'll reserve that decision - and option

Wallet, covered up behind my drivers license. I've had maybe.. geez.. half a dozen encounters with LEO's either about my carry or just in general. 3 or 4 were just officers shootin' the breeze in Quizno's with myself and friends. Other times were traffic stops or answering questions. Not a one seemed to make a deal out of my carrying. One guy seemed like he couldn't care less (answering questions as a witness). Most of them ask me why I carry.. which I have no problem with either. All of them were very polite and professional - but then again I don't think I've had a bad run-in with LEO's. Knock on wood.
