    Train yourself(habit forming) to not take your wallet/keys/whatever out of your pants pockets when you get home for the day. When it's time to crash for the night switch the gear to the new set of pants for the next day.

    This is a good habit to form and can extend it further to learn to keep that pre-prepped set of clothes along with shoes etc... ready to go in the same place(like at the corner of the bed or a stand at the end or something) in your room each night. This allows you to hop right out of bed in the middle of the night and be ready to roll on a moments notice.

    I am still finding it hard to wrap my head around any man over the age of eighteen who could leave his abode with his wallet.

    I must admit, it did happen to me one time in the last decade or so. I noticed it within two blocks of the house, turned around and went to retrieve it.

    Same here.

    You've got to have a checklist as if you were a pilot about to fly a airplane.

    Except for the bra part. I don't need it.

    I like the basket idea, gun, holster, wallet, keys. Of course I went and made it harder on myself I guess, I still use my fbi style folder case for my CPL and DL/Proof of Ins etc. Plus a fat wallet which I am determined to UNfat!

    How about something as simple as a sticky note or colored rubber band on the gun when you put it to bed at nite? Or do you carry several different guns? You can still put colored rubber bands on the grips of any as you put them away.

    I have trained myself...dilligently, to now take my purse all the way back to the bedroom when I come home, rather than tossing it on the table in the dining area. Not only is it a visible temptation to an intruder there, it has my (one and only) gun. And I can be cut off from it there.

    So now it immediately gets taken all the way back to the bedroom and the gun is removed and placed on the nightstand shelf where it lives at all times when I am home....in my saferoom/bedroom....ready if needed.

    I like this idea, or the drawer. As I mentioned, I now 'unload' in my bedroom, on a vanity that I use specifically for that purpose and keep everything together....so that when I switch purses, all the stuff is in one place and easily transferred.

    No, not attached to the gun/holster, but rather beside where it is stored for the night. That way it is right there when arming, it can be pocketed at the same time.

    I have my CCW, Wallet, Badge/ID, keys, all next to each other on the night stand. I pick one up they are all right there. Then I do a pat down....wallet one pocket, ID other pocket, gun in holster, watch on wrist, knife clipped to front pocket. Makes it simple.

    PA -
    You are required to have your license with you AKA "on your person" whenever you are carrying concealed in PA.

    If you forget your PA LTCC you could just uncover your firearm and carry it OPEN.

    The very best thing to do though is to just not forget your wallet.

    I have a coworker who is my gym partner, and she told me that one day she was coming back out of the locker room and as she was changing back to her work clothes, she put her shoes and her socks on and was walking away from her locker when she realized she wasn't wearing any pants.
