This can be avoided by keeping your wallet in your front pants pocket, or by wrapping the wallet with a thick rubberband if it's in your back pocket.



Best to ignore the back pocket completely. Years ago I broke myself of doing that when I learned how easy the back pocket is to pick. Pros call it "the sucker's hole." Takes some getting used to having it in the front, but feels much more secure now.

My wife fInally found me a small leather sleeve to hold my DL and a card or 2...attached to that is a money clip to secure the bills I carry.

It's also less bulky and more secure.

This is a big improvement over the "wallet" which I think has become a dated accessory for most men(IMHO).

Anyone representing the city should be catering to us-their bread and butter. Instead they see us all as chumps who can easily be replaced.


Any jurisdiction, or for that matter casino, that continually treats its visitors like chumps will soon be feeling the effects of that stupidity as people with half a mind gravitate to more friendly venues. That is what happens in Atlantic City, downtown Las Vegas and similar places.

I bought one just like that prior to my last visit to LV. It made me more conscious of it, because I was missing the familiar weight & bulk where I was used to it. I don't use it all the time, just on vacations.

Ernest Hemingway was pickpocketed in Paris in the 50's. He had a Chinese tailor make him a tweed jacket that had a secret inside breast pocket for his wallet, and he wore it when he traveled for the rest of his life.

Reminds me of the brush off I got when my iPad was stolen. The LVPD seem to not care much about non-violent crime.



And when it comes to violent crime, they're normally the ones committing the crime! Metro is the most corrupt police force in the country.

Ive been carrying my important cards and cash in my front pocket for years.



I'm like you. I always keep my wallet in my front pocket. I never was able to get used to having it behind me.

I haven't had a wallet for years. I carry my necessities in a front pocket or an inside jacket pocket. Usually, that's a driver's license, one credit card or bank card, and the cash that I need. Everything else resides in the hotel safe. Yes, I've dropped a visa card, or a bank card, over the years. But compare that to the loss of an entire wallet and the pain it takes to replace everything that you have, and I like the benefits.

Oddly I thought Metro would have found someone to shoot.
I have a bewitched egg that I use to play VP with and I have net over 900k with it.
