    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    I don't carry yet, but last year I forgot my wallet for the first time and as my luck would have it, it was the same day I was going to interview for a position at the nuke plant and they needed my DL to verify that I was on the list of approved visitors

    No Vote Here....

    Third option: Neither. Both are ingrained habit and one goes with the other.

    Varies by state what you are required to have on you as has been mentioned. With that said, my wallet.

    Couldn't see the selection for neither so I didn't vote.

    Well, I'm not likely to forget either but definitely not my wallet, like my keys, it never leaves my pocket.

    I'm not sure... I'll have to check into it. I'll at least get a copy of my CC permit and keep it in all of my vehicles.

    In the past 3yrs, I have forgotten to bring my wallet twice, and my firearm once. So, at least for me, I'm twice as likely to forget my wallet as my firearm. Part of that is due to the simple fact that I don't regularly disarm throughout the day.

    .

    My wallet, and it only happened once. We had gone out for breakfast, CC'g of course, I reached in my back pocket for my wallet, and Oh Crap. I almost had a heart attack right there on the spot. Left the restaurant quickly got in the truck and raced home. My wallet was in the pocket of the jacket I had worn the night before.
    Since then it hasn't happened and likely won't. I've learned to pat myself down before leaving the house.
    Head, yep glasses are there, right rear pocket, yep, wallet where it belongs, left rear pocket, knife and spare lighter, left front jacket pocket, smokes and lighter, right front jacket pocket, keys,left waistband, cell phone, right waistband, firearm.
    If anything isn't where it should be I make sure it is before I walk out the door.
    After that wake-up call I don't ever want to do that again!

    Neither.

    My gun is with me to protect me. My wallet is with me to hold my permit so my gun can legally protect me.

    Of course most on the forum are going to say neither! However, if you were to forget one which is more likely?

    Wallet. And it's happened one time. And I freaked out and headed home quickly to get it!

    I put on my Revolver one day & left the house forgetting my 2 speed loaders with the extra rounds, but when I got into the car I noticed it & went back in to get them, even though I have 5 in the cylinder, you never know if you will ever need the xtra rounds if things go down bad. I make sure that this never happend again, so I re check myself before going out every time now.

    I've never forgotten my handgun when I was going someplace where I could take it. I forgot my wallet ONCE. I remembered, drove to the end of the block (divided street) came back and got it.

    The mass murder in the Tinley Park, IL Lane Bryant is all I need to keep me from forgetting to carry.

    The last time I forgot one or the other, it was my wallet!
