    Lightbulb A hypothetical situation

    If a LEO stops me for an alleged traffic infraction and I am carrying my gun, but I forgot my wallet with my driver’s license and CCW permit at home (or I lost it), can he run me and see that I really have CCW permit? What should you do in a situation like this?

    In Oregon, if you don't have your driver's license, you can prove you have one in court. If you don't have your CHP, you are in deep, deep doo doo.

    If you lost it, don't carry until you get a replacement, plain and simple, same with your drivers license.

    I agree with you; I would never carry until I get a replacement. But what should happen if I forgot my wallet at home or lost it, and I was not aware of it until the LEO stops me?

    Ok, I will echo what they said before me. If you lost it dont carry till you find it or replace it.

    Now if you just forgot it. I know here in CT it will cost you $150.00. plus the court fees. (no I have not had to deal with this)

    In TX, the LEO can run you and the CHL would show up. However, in TX anyone can carry in their vehicle, as long as they can legally own a handgun...

    So, you'd get 2 citations...traffic violation + no DL

    Let me tell you that this situation scares the life out of me, but it could happen to any of us.

    Honesty = BEST policy, always.
    Speak softly, and carry a big stick.

    I think that too; however, I should say “Honesty and Courtesy = BEST policy, always.”

    It may not be worth the paper but I keep a copy of my DL, State ID, CHL, and Passport cover page in a little brief case that goes everywhere with me.

    I also have copies of these documents stored on my iPhone.

    If nothing else it is a starting point for showing my true identity, and that except for the lost wallet or forgotten wallet I'd be fully legal.

    All of that said, it has been my "nightmare" scenario that while shopping in "the city" 100 miles from home, my wallet got lifted and there I was needing to drive home without DL or CHL.

    In PA you need your LTC on your person to carry concealed but, you could always just uncover and carry open without your LTC.

    That sure would be a problem if you were pocket carrying though.
    I guess you would just have to stuff your firearm into your waistband and keep it exposed.

    I do a mental checklist before leaving the house...my wife double that list by asking me again, it's our routine.
    On the rare occasion that I THOUGHT I had my license, I still (physically) touch the things I need as I'm driving away. If I've forgotten anything, I'm back before I'm a 1/2 mile away.

    Stay armed...make yourself a list...stay safe!
