    Moving from Tenn to Texas

    In about a month, I will become a former resident of Tennessee and a new resident of Texas. Will Tennessee continue to backup my TN-HCP? Will Texas honor my TN-HCP?

    Also, when I apply for a TX-CHL, do I need to take a course? The DPS site says that peace officers and retired feds are exempt, but it doesn't mention current feds (who are not peace officers in Texas).

    Service policy prohibits me from carrying any other than my service weapon on the creds and I'd like the option.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    You need to look through the statutes, but I believe if you want to carry as a CHL holder in Texas instead of under LEOSA you will need to go through the course like the rest of us.

    Here is a link to the statutes.

    BTW, what part of Texas are you going to?

    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    That's how it appears to me. It doesn't entirely makes sense, but it does look like it.

    Going from protecting just yourself and family, to protecting yourself, family, and property!
    If I left FL (pretty good gun laws), I'd pick TX as a possible move.

    I have moved multiple times and the last move was from Texas to Mississippi (I work in Tennessee). You will not be able to carry there once you move your official residency. You will have to take the course and apply in TX. Loved living in TX - you won't regret being there.

    I have helped US Marshals and Treasury Agents get their Texas license. You will have to take the course, you might be waved on the range portion if you can document recent qualification with your weapon, but thats the fun part!

    If I'm not mistaken you need to be a resident of TX for 6 months before you can apply for your permit. Then when you look at the wait time from processing, your looking at close to a year unarmed. You might want to look into a non-resident license from a state TX honors to carry you over until you get your TX permit.

    Thats what I've been doing. I have my Florida permit. I should have my Texas permit soon.

    Welcome to Texas. You have already gotten great CHL related tips and info so I am going to offer something a bit different:

    YOU KNOW YOU'RE IN TEXAS WHEN . . .

    You discover that in July, it takes only 2 fingers to drive your car . . .

    You no longer associate bridges (or rivers) with water . . .

    You can say 110 degrees without fainting . . .

    You can make sun tea instantly . . .

    You learn that a seat belt makes a pretty good branding iron . . .

    You notice the best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance . . .

    Hotter water comes from the cold water tap than the hot one . . .

    It's noon in July, kids are on summer vacation, and not one person is moving on the streets . . .

    You actually burn your hand opening the car door . . .

    Sunscreen is sold year round, kept at the front of the checkout counter . . .

    A formula less than 30 SPF is a joke and you only wear that to go to the corner store . . .

    Hot air balloons can't go (at all) . . .

    No one would dream of putting vinyl upholstery in a car . . .

    You realize that asphalt has a liquid state.

    The thermometer in the lid of your Bar-B-Que Grill shows 150 degrees F, before you light it.

    You hear the weather forecast for 105 degrees without flinching.

    You run the house a/c in the middle of winter, so you can use your fireplace.

    Sunscreen with less than 50 SPF is called 'hand cream.'

    You see two trees fighting over a dog.

    And another popular one:

    "Don't hit a man if you can possibly avoid it; but if you do hit him, put him to sleep." - Theodore Roosevelt
