    New From Texas

    Just took my CHL class last week, sent everything off to the state, just waiting now : ). Just curious to see what others have gone thru or dealt with over the years, learn from others and have fun. Been shooting for years, just never bothered with a CHL, but with a family now and kids, and the world seeming growing more dangerous every year, it seemed like it was time.

    Greetings from Richmond/Rosenberg, TX

    Last year submitted mine January took about 6 weeks. (I heard from my wife's friend for her it took 4 weeks, she submitted her's a month before i did). Let us know how long it takes.

    G-d, Make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who would seek to destroy me. And G-d if today is truly the day you call me home, then let me die in a pile of empty brass.

    Hi JonnySW! Welcome to the forum from a fellow Texian. This is a great place to learn and to share! I carry a 3rd Gen Glock 30 SF. Congrats on making the important decision to carry and to protect yourself and your loved ones. I've been a Texas CHL holder since 2005. Have owned guns and been shooting since the mid 80s.

    Welcome neighbor. Shouldn't take too long till you get your plastic.
    Then you do your Wally walk, or Home Depot shuffle.
