    Talking Newbie

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to the forum and I don't CCW yet. I'm originally from California, where they don't even allow CCW but I live in San Angelo, TX now. Anyhow, I've just applied for my CCW permit/license yesterday. I know I still have to get the packet in the mail and get fingerprinted and all that but I was wondering if there is anyone out there who can tell me what to expect during the process and if there's anything I can do to speed the process along. I know I have to take a handgun safety course, too. I plan on getting the Taurus PT709 "Slim" as my CCW; I'm just waiting for my TX driver's license to come in the mail so I can go down and pick one up. From what I've read so far, PT709 owners are in love with it and I'm glad to hear it.

    Thanks and I look forward to reading your words of wisdom

    You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
    You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
    However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
    1) Call someone with a gun.
    2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man
