Me: In my back pocket.
Officer: Well, just let it stay there (hands me the speeding ticket).
That's exactly what I have done in the past and it has been a non issue. Just be sure you don't say " I have a gun" first instead of "I have a concealed carry permit". A friend of mine found that out the hard way .
