    That's a big statement, and I respectfully disagree. There is one man everyone here has heard of, that can proudly wear that badge.

    but...

    I'm just here to learn about wallets...

    Same thing with my wife. I've spent over $1500 on her 3 coach purses that she just "had to have". She has used them all for a combined total of about a month and she has had them at least 5 years. Now she uses these $50 purses she likes. Maybe I should throw them on ebay and go buy myself something nice.

    well 4 years later I use a rodeo wallet now and won’t use anything else, helps keep the cards from rubbing and everything is just easier to access.

    I carry a chain drive wallet for the common stuff. Aint no one taking that from me without a fight.

    However there is a concealed system that goes inside the pants but over the undergarments in a particular way. The really good stuff is in there. Sometimes the Colt Railgun and few magazines, sometimes a banking checkbook backing the amount of cash withdrawn that day and so on. It's not often. But various other systems have been used as well. One time when I gained sufficent weight years ago during a really difficult time (Never again) it became possible to use a fat roll to bury a little of this and that. But it is not ideal. I had to lose the weight and fast and so it was done.

    Sometimes the magazines empty are used to carry important documents. Bad guy gets close enough and I happen to pull a corner or allow enough of the steel to show to fill bad guys eyes with the concept that there are very bad things in holsters on me and they take off. I am not prey even though I may behave as one because of the stupid medicines I have to take.

    People calm down pretty quickly when they see a vehicle registration or something innocent come out of a deliberately empty magazine he he.

    The wallet doesn’t matter. Put it in the #### cubby hole above your head and drive.

    I never take my wallet out of my pocket except when I have it in my hand. hand or pocket. Best way I know of to lose it or not have it standing at a POS counter is to learn that habit. However I kept every single item otherwise in my briefcase. I took cash most times I had anywhere from $1000 to $2500 in that briefcase. Checkbook, extra EFS blanks and my extra logbooks. I would sometimes stick my permit book in there when I was at our home terminal so i could get any updated. Back to that wallet. I used a rather large wallet and kept very few items in it. My fuel card, Debit/credit cards, FF Cards, CDL and medical card along with some cash. Everything else stayed in my briefcase. I have seen people with wallets 2 inches thick. That is something I will never understand. it is like a lady with a purse the size of a large suitcase or duffle bag.

    edited to correct something. By large I mean large and flat. I never had a bulging wallet.
