I store all of my licenses right behind my motor ...

+1 on that! I don't bend over much in public without a jacket on, but I have been known to reach up for stuff. Since I carry in a Tucker Tx Heritage, and tuck it in, I don't show overtly, though a print might briefly be there. I worry more about the guy behind me in line seeing my firearms permit when I remove my DL than I do printing or being made.

As long as I leave the hosue with the billfold I have the permit. Now, I have left the house for work without the billfold on more than one occation --- nice thing (in this case) I can not carry at work so . . .
Kansas requires that I have ID and permit on my person if I have a concealed handgun on my person.

He should always have his permit, but some states don't allow for a gun to be shown at all. So I think he's just grateful that it's ok if his does show by mistake because his state allows open carry.

I think the officer did right (and I hope he showed an ID ;-) ). All it came down to was a nice reminder to be more careful. And well, if it results in some guys getting arrested for carrying without license: even better.
In Florida, you have to have your permit on you when you carry. Forgetting your permit at home carries only a minor fine (I think $50. it is just a tricket not even a misdemeanor). However, you are typically arrested until this is sorted out.

Arrested or merely detained pending investigation (aka calling in for a lookup)? Detained seems more likely.

I always have it. My driver's license, my handicap parking permit and my concealed carry permit are in a little clear card holder that the American Legion sent to me.

I live in a small town, worked with the Sheriff Department for about a year, so I knew who he was anyway.
after seeing my name on the permit and DL he realized that he knew me. He said he didn't recognize me at first. (it's been a while and I but on some weight)

I sure hope you asked to see his credentials? And not just a badge. A badge don't mean kaka without credentials.

Question is...what has the deputy been doing with the guns he's taken from folks without their CHL? If there's some place I can find them cheap, I want to know! Personally, I think the deputy should be able to keep them as his own property. Concealed should be the eleventh commandment if you ask me. Everyone makes mistakes, but when mistakes are made, it's usually due to those who make them not being aware. Live, eat, sleep, breathe, act concealed if it's what you do. Never let your position be compromised by yourself or others no matter what. It's not a goal to work toward, it's part of your life!

At the bottom
I don't worry about that as my driver's license is behind my retired military id. The CHL (concealed handgun license, as it is called in Michigan even tho a lot of people, police also refer to it as CCW) is at the bottom of the stack.
