    Howdy from Texas

    Going to get fingerprinted for my CHL this afternoon. Should have my application in the mail soon. Looking forward to getting my license. Has anyone from Texas applied recently? how long is the wait?

    This site is great and I am glad to be a member.

    6 weeks to the day from sending everything to getting it in the mail. Welcome to the forum. Been into guns for 55 years. CHL since June.

    Took my class December 10th. Sent the final needed stuff int he day after the class. Still showing "Pending background check" on the CHL application site. Was told average wait these days is 3-4 weeks, but with it being Christmas time, add a week or two on there to compensate.

    Thanks for all the responses.

    I took my CHL class back in October. When I went online to apply for the license, the website would not cooperate. Went to the DPS and discovered they had my SSN wrong by one number. The clerk must've made a keystroke error way back when I was 15! The problem was to fix the error I had to present my SS card, which I haven't seen since high school. Went to SSA. Applied for a new card. Waited a month. Got the card. Went back to DPS. They updated my info and issued me a new license....so I had to wait another month! Hopefully after today I will have jumped all the hurdles.
