Whatever happens EVENTUALLY, here is what is LIKELY to happen "in the moment".

Weapon prints unintentionally. Officer Friendly observes.

Excuse me- I need to speak with you for a minute- would you step over here? I see you appear to have a concealed weapon. Are you an LEO or CCW license holder?"

Well, yes, I have a CCW- but I left my wallet in the car.

I see. Would you please turn around, face the other way, and place your hands behind your back....

You are going to be detained. AKA "cuffed and stuffed". Whether you are charged later, what charge, what penalty- will vary state to state. But you ARE going to spend time sitting to one side wearing some new jewelry. Mommy- look at the funny man wearing bracelets.....

Obviously, this should not apply in states that do not require a CCW license.

Me? Wallet is my filing system. Only have 2 credit cards (one me, one my company) but I have O.L., FFL copy, Explosives license, CCW, Library card, Lodge card, medical and dental card, permission to take grandkids to the range, permission to seek medical care for grandkids, challenge coin, military ID, hunting license, boat license, business cards- and $3 in cash money.

Come to think of it, my wallet could double as a trauma plate for body armor....

State law doesn't seen to offer any answers
If you're in a mall or grocery store, many cops would probably simply escort you to your car to retrieve it (while they're in control of your firearm), give you a scolding and a good firm lecture.

Still, there are some (probably just as many as in the first scenario) who will go ahead and cuff you and let you relax in the back of their nice car while they get everything sorted out.

And, your could get charged, here's why:
Some states require you to have your permit on you while carrying. Just like many require that your have proof of insurance in your car. If you have your gun on you, without your permit also being on your body, that may be a crime itself, depending on where you live, regardless of if you've been issued one or not.

Best bet, as some others have already mentioned, just keep your wallet on you. I wouldn't even use two different wallets, that would leave an open opportunity for confusion and mistakes. Just put it in your pocket and leave it there.

When you apply for your CCW you know the rules. If you can remember to load your handgun you should remember your permit.

The three dollars cash money is a bit excessive, don't you think? Lol

They make cell phone cases that are designed to hold credit cards and your ccl can be slipped between the phone and case. That is if your good about having your phone with you...

ALfiremedic.the fact is either absolutely nothing would happen or the local LEO could make as big a deal out of it as they want.so it kindof depends on what town or county you are in that day.I live in calhoun county and our local LEO's are pretty good about stuff like that but i do alot of business in etowah and jefferson counties and their LEO's are well known for being heartless bastards.you might consider one of those CCW holsters or cred cases that have the CCW badge on them both also have a slot for your actual CCW so if you say use the holster like this you are never without your permit

I tried a money clip for a while. The steel one from them damn infomercials. It was so compact that i kept losing it. I have a prefer a wallet with a chain on it. Ive never lost it!

But i admit having a chain hanging from your belt isnt for everyone...

Not much to say to a dumby that can't keep his wallet on him. leave it in the car!! At some point you will have your car broke in to and some bum will clear out your accounts OR a leo will end up cuffing and stuffing you over have a concealed weapon on you. I don't see a problem here. Ether way the problem will be taken care of naturaly. Shack out the un-need junk from the wallet and learn to carry ,or don't . It a personal problem. hehehehe Maybe a ccw badge with your ccw paper work on the back side!!

Just for kicks and giggles, I just counted the stuff in my billfold. There were 16 items, besides a small amount of cash, and including two spare keys. There is no way to organize that stuff in a money clip. Also when I pull out my billfold, the casual bystander can't see whether, or how much cash is in there.

I can't imagine how I would ever keep up with my billfold, or for that matter, my pocket knife, keys, etc. if they weren't always either in my pocket, or on my dresser. Using this system, I have never lost a billfold, and I really can't recall ever losing a pocket knife; at least in the last 50 years. I have, however, had my car broken into, three times, resulting in stuff being cabbaged.

The glove compartment of a car is a hot-spot for thieves anyway. It is much easier for them to get my stuff there than from my back pocket.

In my state, it is required that the permit be with the gun, and I try to not give law enforcement any reason to interact with me.
