Anyone have recent numbers or know where to find them for the number of Current CHL licenses issued in Texas?? This is more curiosity as anything. I know plenty of hardcore hunters and am continually surprised at how many of them DONT have their CHL.
Past census numbers i have found on the web (from 2004) state that less than 3% of the over 18 population have a CHL and I thought that to be REALLY Low for what I was expecting.
Is it because Texas is such a gun-friendly state (carry in vehicle, no permit long gun carry...) that people don't see the need?
Being interested, I asked my Uncle his opion as he is a gun nut and a VERY PROUD Texan, and his response was....he "didn't want the government knowing he had guns or that he may be carrying them."
I just found it interesting that as a carrier myself, only 3 out of every 100 people I run across have the RIGHT to carry, and probably even less actually do.
