Angie, kudos to you for getting a CHL. I got mine several years ago and carry everyday.
I'm guessing you're taking your CHL class on Friday, which means you still have to send your application & paperwork to the state. So don't be surprised if the state is a little slow in sending you your "plastic".
The last time I checked, I think the rule is they have to send it to you within 60 days of receiving your application, however; I read where some people got their plastic in only a couple of weeks. I think it depends largely on the person whose desk it landed on for processing.
Here's a link to TexasCHLforum that has lots of forums and articles on the latest and greatest regarding changes to the law and an interpretation of what they mean. Plus, there's a lot of good "geez whiz" information there, too.
Go to the forum titled, "The Waiting Room" and you'll get an idea how long others have been waiting for the state to process their CHL.
Not yet. Tumbleson was awesome tho! I did shoot a 245 out of 250. Husband got 249. Lol.
We should be sending it off this week. Have to go get fingerprints done first. It's so much easier now with everything done online and fingerprints are instantly sent to te states database. They also use your tdl picture now so u don't have to submit one
So we finalized all the papers online on the 18th Had fingerprints done on the 17th Just received the chl card in the mail today (3rd). Wasn't expecting it that fast. Still waiting on husbands. Hope it will come tomorrow :)
Now ladies. How do you prefer to carry? Purse or holster?
lol I was all giggles and so proud! Hubbins still didn't get here today, so hopefully soon! Going holster shopping this weekend to find one where I can keep it in the truck without worries about it inside the console, for easier access.
