well, since ive been here since sep. 27th i finally decided i should introduce myself. my name is russell, i live in Austin Texas and after jumping through hoops pulling files in austin downtown, getting registered documents, digital fingerprints, letters of reputation and recommendation i finally today got my plastic Texas chl in the mail, just 3 hours ago :bier:. i always felt sort of funny not having it and out of place on this forum until now.
i wasn't sure i would get it as i was not a very law abiding or LEO liking person in my youth.i changed my mind and my ways about that about 15 yrs ago and decided to move into the light.i was also sick of being scummy.
anyway i think all or most of you realize from most of my posts that i am one of you and more importantly i think as most of all of you do on responsibility and law abiding folks rights.
i just want to say if anyone out there has not had a great unblemished past , but has led a good life for at least 10 or 15 years dont be afraid to try and get your CHL if you really want one. you will never know if you dont try.
i sent a letter to the DPS thanking them for their help in working w/me to get my CHL they were great. i think everybody on this forum are really good people and i am proud to be associated with you all.
other than that all i have left to say is God Bless Texas.
sorry about the long post everybody and thanks for bearing w/me i needed to say it. :wave:
