    Buying a gun and having a CCL.

    In Texas is the gun buying process any different when using a CCL as a second form of identification?

    The reason I ask is I bought a new LCP the other day and the man behind the counter seemed very happy about me having my CCL.

    I did not notice anything different about the process on my end, but I did not know they did anything different with the state.

    In Utah that waves the background check and fee. I would assume it's the same there.

    In PA I've only used it for weapons purchases and it doesn't matter-still gotta go through the background check.

    In GA having your CCL means no background check, just fill out the paperwork and take your new toy home.

    It is going to vary from state to state depending on how your laws are written. For example, here in VA they still run the background check, and the fee is the same, but having a CHP waives the 1 gun a month rule.

    In Idaho if you have your CCW they do not call for the instant check and I have not paid a fee.

    Well from one Texan to another the answer is yes it is a little bit different. If you go to the right places, all you have to do is fill out the standard 4473 like normal and show your CHL. He will make the proper notations on the form and hand over the firearm without calling to verify. He might also waive any fees he might have charged with the purchase.

    In Ohio, they still have to do the check, even with CHL. Come to think of it, when I go to the shop I frequent, they dont even accept the CHL unless someones address is not the same as it is on the drivers license. Also, never been charged a fee for the background checks, but I bet they are built into the price of the gun.

    Well, to me it means no waiting. The FFL makes a photocopy of our DL and CHCL to go along with the yellow sheet and they do the background check and everything later....cash and carry.

    Each state is different... in Minnesota you either need a purchase permit, which is only good for one year, or you need a Carry Permit... Carry Permits are good for 5 years and dealers already know that you have a background check to carry... win-win if you have a Carry Permit in Minnesota.

    Texas =no background check since you had to pass an extensive one to get your license in the first place,If you can carry a gun then you can own one

    The background check is at the Fed level. In Kansas I have shown my CCP, and they still call me into N.I.C.S., as they should, no matter what the state requirements are.

    In Kentucky it cuts down considerably when you have your CCDW permit.

    Ok, thats what I thought, because I don't remember the man calling anyone before he handed over the gun to me. Thanks guys, I was just wondering.

    Oh and on a side note, when I was filling out the paper work. One person came in the store wanting to buy the LCP and another person called to put it on hold, looks like I got there just in the nick of time, especially since they only had one.
