Bear with me if this specific question has been dealt with before (I'd be surprised if it hasn't), but I got lost wading through the hits returned by the forum search function...
I am a former VA resident, where I had a CHL, now expired. I'm currently a TX resident. As you may know, TX in-state licenses are expensive.
Does anyone know whether I can (successfully) apply to AZ for a non-resident CHL, using my VA NRA Hunter Safety Course as proof of training,* despite no longer being a VA resident? And if the application is approved, can I then carry legally in TX?
The purpose is not to circumvent any laws, but to pay $60 vs some $250 or more (training class + app fee + fingerprinting fee).
TIA for your help.
