    So I got to thinking about this. Do you think people are making fake CHLs like they make fake DLs? I understand that if verified through DPS a fake may be caught or maybe used at an FFL. But I'm wondering in this day and age of identify theft, ID fraud, credit card fraud, do you think there are fake CHLs out there? Anyone heard any stories of LEOs confiscating any? There even a benefit to a fake CHL?

    I'm sure there are some dummies out there doing it. The thing is, a fake CHL would be discovered immediately upon presentation to an officer of the law. Then you get the unlawful carrying charge, plus the forgery charge.

    IME, a quality fake ID goes completely undetected.

    I have a VA/CHL, it does not even have a photo, it looks like a voter ID card. No security features at all.

    Why would one present a fake ID to an LEO?

    well, way back in the day I was going to a club with this really hot girl I had just met (turns out she was 19, I was 21). Anyway, bouncer spotted her fake ID, gave it to the cop....instant buzzkill.

    Back on topic:

    I guess somebody could make a fake CHL to try and purchase a firearm and circumvent the background check....risky move, but not all criminals are brilliant.

    I doubt it.

    Why go through all the trouble when you could just by the badge.

    Lol

    Yeah thinking through this some more that seems like it might be the only way a fake CHL might be attempted to be used. Does the FFL give a quick call in to verify that the CHL is legit?
