Are you better off not carrying your permit?

I have renewed my permit because of the abilities if gives you to carry in other states. However, if you are in Oklahoma, is there any advantage to carrying your permit (the card) with you now that we have permitless carry? What got me thinking about this is that my wife's permit is for revolvers but not semi-autos. So if she wanted to carry a semi-auto or say that the semi-auto I left in the car with her while I ran into the liquor store, was hers, it seems she would be better off without the permit on her. Does the permit give you any advantages over permitless carry while in Oklahoma? Also, does the fact that you have a permit, even if it isn't on your person, restrict you to the rules for carry permits? I hope this hasn't already been covered.

One point here, why would you lie to a cop that can easily check the ID for qualifications and get your permit revoked?

Well, one of the benefits of the permit is that you can enter an establishment that serves alcohol where as you can not do that without the permit. With the permit, you can enter as long as they don't exceed 51% of revenue from alcohol sales. Without a permit, no entry if ANY alcohol served.

I wasn't aware of this... of course, I'm not going to any restaurants these days, so it's a fairly moot point for a little while.

Apparently my license lapsed in July, I think, and money is extremely tight right now, so I haven't renewed. I plan on renewing sometime, if things get better, but we're just struggling to pay the bills at this point.

I always have mine. I guess since I paid to get one, dang it, I'm gonna carry it.

Danny @tRidiot, when you get ready for another Patriot burger, let me know! My turn to buy this time!

In Texas if you don't renew within 12 months of your permit expiration, you have to go through the whole thing again.

I guess I don't understand why she would have a problem with a semi automatic whether she has a permit or not if a permit is not required in the first place.
