    The strict six month residency requirement has been gone for years in Texas, but some instructors still teach it. I think it was the 2001 or 2003 legislature that repealed it. You need not even be a TX resident to get a TX CHL, as long as you have a Texas ID card and you take the class in Texas from a Texas Instructor. I have a few New Mexico resident students. If you are a Texas resident, but not for six months, you may need to show proof of intent to stay, like a lease contract on a home or apartment, contract to buy a home, or other documentation. I'm not positive that even that is still required; hasn't come up in a class recently.

    To clarify one other matter: Carrying on an out of state permit, from a reciprocal state, is legal, but does not put the holder under the exception to the 1000 foot "Gun Free School Zone Act." Only a permit issued by Texas provides that protection in Texas.

    Just to clarify regarding Arizona permits, "Arizona issues one permit and does not differentiate between resident and non-resident. Non- residents may apply for a permit upon completion of the initial 8 hour class. Training must take place in Arizona." (handgunlaw.us). AZ license once issued is valid for either residents or non-residents.

    As I've been reading this thread, here is the one reason one might want to get the TX permit...I'm just sayin'...
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    140 bucks is less than the cost that an attorney would charge you to "interpret" the law, it's less than what you're time is worth in the off chance you ran into an officer who "wasn't sure", or had to detain you in order to call it in.

    And most importantly, as previously noted, it does have the name of the Greatest State in the Union on it.
