    It depends on your state laws.

    What do you mean by qualify?

    Do you simply mean passing the written test and qualifying with the handgun at the range.

    If you don't pass the background check or have something on your record that you failed to disclose, I believe they can refuse to issue you the permit.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Texas is a "shall issue" state. That means if you meet the requirements in state law, they have to issue you a permit.

    I mean if you qualify under the terms set by the state. First of all, I havent been disqualified. I do have a class A (non domestic violence) from 2001( I sent a copy of the judgement with the paperwork). An unfortunate event I'm afraid, but that is all. Not even a speeding ticket before or since. I was just told by a DPS rep that I needed to speak to someone from their legal dept. I was just curious if the could disqualify at will.

    Not that I am aware of. I have taught close to 4000 people and anyone that qualified received their license.

    Good for you. I suppose that we all have to have something to worry about from time to time. I would bet that you are still counting the days.

    The process time in Texas is so random it is hard to predict.

    Congrats on the status change and hang in there!
