Thread: Carrying a copy of your Concealed Carry Permit?

  1. Carrying a copy of your Concealed Carry Permit?

    Is it "OK" to carry a copy of your handgun permit .. or do you have to have the original on your possession? I want to keep my original in a safe.
    Can i copy it and carry the copy? I have an Indiana hand gun permit.

    I was told you must carry the real mccoy when carrying in my state. But they(police department) never could show me a law stating I had to carry the real thing and not a copy.

    In Florida it has to be the real thing. Any LEO would know if it was a copy as ours is a plastic card the size of a DL.
    Per Fla statutes 790.06:
    The licensee must carry the license, together with valid identification, at all times in which the licensee is in actual possession of a concealed weapon or firearm and must display both the license and proper identification upon demand by a law enforcement officer.

    Try carrying a copy of your Drivers License and see how that works.

    Due to new state DMV laws when you renew your DL that is just what you get from the DMV. They send you a photo copy of your DL and then after comfriming all the information the real one follows. Takes about three weeks (60 days max). Our resident permit is nothing more then a piece of printer paper issued by your local PD. That in it's self is a joke because it has to last you four years.

    I have a good friend who is a detective. I asked him what happens if I forget my wallet at home, he said "keep a photo copy of your DL and CCW in your glove box that way if you forget, its proof you have one. Not sure about other states but that's what he said for AZ.

    Our drivers licenses are permanent and don't expire until we turn 65, like mine expires in 2035. We do have to go in for new pic's every 10 or 15 years, not sure, I've had mine for 9 years.

  11. IC 35-47-2-1
    Carrying a handgun without a license or by person convicted of domestic battery
    Sec. 1. (a) Except as provided in subsection (b) and section 2 of this chapter, a person shall not carry a handgun in any vehicle or on or about the person's body, except in the person's dwelling, on the person's property or fixed place of business, without a license issued under this chapter being in the person's possession.
    This is your Indiana statute. If you have a copy of a license in your possession, was that copy issued to you? No. The only thing having a copy available MIGHT do for you is the cop may let you go with a citation to appear before a judge to show him your real license without your gun being confiscated. But, I would bet you still would be found in violation of the above statute.
