    I’ve only recently purchased a handgun, so I want to get more proficient shooting before I take the class and apply for the license. But I may go ahead and just take the class now and get my fingerprints and application filed because I got delayed (again) purchasing an AR lower today. I know it won’t do nothing for me now, but I’m hoping it will make it a lot less complicated in the future. The last time I got delayed, they called me the next morning and it was already approved. It’s not a huge thing, but as soon as they say you’re delayed, my mind starts running away with thoughts of someone with my name being wanted and ATF showing up at my door!

    Texas does not have a CCL permit.


    It was called a CHL since 1997 until the OC option , then it became simply a LTC

    It is nice to bypass NICs checks

    I’ve had mine since the year the law came into effect.. I think 1996 or 1997

    You could opt to put your social in the 4473 and you won’t be delayed anymore

    The law was passed in 1995 and went into effect in 1996. In 93 our then Governor Ann Richard's vetoed the bill. George Bush was elected and the bli was presented to him in 95. He signed it right away.

    ^^^This.

    I was regularly delayed on almost every transfer for a year or two a few years back. SSN didn't stop it from happening. For some reason the delays just seem to stop after a while. No visits from da man. :)

    I remember I had my class and everything done and I got my permit mailed to me and it had a big orange sticker on it that you had to peel off and it said something to the effect that you cant carry until a certain date.
    Not sure if that was Sept 1st but I think it was Sept or Jan

    Did they give any explanation as to why you had to wait? Seems unusual that they sent you a permit and then said wait. What for? You either passed of you didn't!

    Maybe because you had to wait for the law to go into effect???? Kinda like preregistering for something you get later.
