I just found the post, but will insert my .02 too. The CHL issue has been covered, but when you decide to apply for your Texas license get in touch with Reborn or me if you like. We are both instructors and have a private range just outside Dallas where we not only do CHL, but also defensive and tactical. Places to maybe live ... you will want to also consider Rockwall maybe Rowlett as well as Allen, Plano, Frisco...etc etc. And yes there is also several statewide groups that underwrite and support our CHL activities. Good luck in your upcoming move, we look forward to have a new Texan here with us.
