I lost my right to carry last week - for about a day.
As I left my office I called in an order of Chinese food. When I went into the restaurant to pay for it - I felt an empty pocket. I had lost my wallet. Immediately I wasn't thinking about the food, or my ID - I was thinking "I have a weapon on me - without my CHL".
I walked back to my car - and locked my glock in my lock box. I went back into the restaurant and called my wife and she gave them a CC# over the phone.
As I was driving home I started thinking about all the places I had been that day without my license to carry. What if something happened? What if I was pulled over for speeding?
I have never misplaced or lost my wallet. This was a first and a sobering reminder that a concealed gun without a license is a crime - even for a person who has a license (somewhere).
The next day I found my wallet on the floor of my office - under my chair.
1. Check the wallet often.
2. Make sure that I always have a lock box - sometimes you have to stow your gun.
3. Don't buy food from a restaurant that will take a CC number without an ID.
