    I was pulled over for the first time today since I received my concealed carry licence. The DPS officer was very professional, no issue what so ever about me carrying. Two thing that I will change after this encounter, one is to make sure that my inspection sticker is up to date. The second thing is to take my wallet out of my pocket before I get in my car. It was a little unnerving to have a grown man digging in my front pocket to fish out my wallet.

    Wow. Never had that happen. I am on my 5th straight warning after they find out I had a CHL. Usually they seem at ease when I tell them I'm a CHL holder.

    You carry your wallet in your front pocket? Why wouldn't he let you retrieve the wallet? Anyway, glad it worked out for you.

    Wallet in my front pocket for years. Keeps you from having back issues.

    That is excessive. Not sure why he felt the need to drag you out of the car and pat down or whatever.

    With no more information than provided, you can tell it was excessive? Hiw do you know he was "drug out of the car"? How do you know the OP didn't step out on his own? Either is possible, isn't it?

    Old dudes know not to keep wallets in the back pocket. I kept mine in my back pocket until my early 30's. Then I started to get numbness in my toe. Moving the wallet to the front pocket solved the issue a year later.
