Assuming, of course, that the WalMart attendant even knows what a CCW permit looks like and what it is and just because you are carrying a permit does not necessarily mean you are currently carrying a gun.how many people do you hold your wallet open for?...do you want the cashier at walmart to know you are carrying a gun concealed?...i cant think of a good reason to display the license unless you are required to....
i think that is obvious...my actual point is why display it regardless of who knows what it is or not...you dont display your gun and should not advertise that you "may" be carrying one either...a valid form of id?...sure...but it wouldnt be the first thing you would show someone i'm sure....Assuming, of course, that the WalMart attendant even knows what a CCW permit looks like and what it is and just because you are carrying a permit does not necessarily mean you are currently carrying a gun.
Currently there are two different CCW permits in my wallet and I am not carrying a gun at this moment. The presence of a permit does not verify the presence of a gun.
I have actually used my permit for photo identification when I misplaced my DL and the official looking at it had to stare and read it for three minutes before it dawned on them that it was a permit to carry a concealed firearm. They didn't ask if I was currently armed.
Wow, everyone these days seems to want ID for something or other. I'm surprised you aren't being asked more frequently. They change tellers and staff at my bank so frequently, I need ID there about once in 6 weeks.Right behind my DL, an ID always comes out of the wallet when asked for. I never show them my whole wallet with pictures of kids, other certs/licenses in it, and financial info.
How often do you actually get asked for ID outside of a traffic stop? I've only been asked once in the last few months at WW.
