So I am just wondering has anyone in Texas recently gone thru the class and paperwork?

From the few places I've called prices seem to range from $90-$175 for the 10 hour class and range test. Then its another $10 for 2 passport photos (some classes do this free) Finger Printing at an L1 approved location $10 and then an additional $140 for paperwork to the state - wait 30-90 days for license.

I was always under the impression Texans liked guns - why would they make it so expensive? Kinda bummed - Now ill have to wait till payday and that's not till the first of next month :(

I am in the Houston area. L1 will e mail your prints and pictures to austin, those are the pictures they used for the license. 56 days from the time I put the papers in the mail until the day I got it in the mail.

Yeah, that's a little pricey. I live in TN and the class and range course fee is between $65-$75. App fee to the state is $115 and they take your photo there at no extra cost. The fingerprinting is done at the local sheriff's dept. at no extra cost as well.

One more thing in case you didn't know, you don't need a CHL to carry on your property, including in you vehicle. I realize this limits things, but it's better than some states.

Its a joke IMO - Amendment # 2 - and I'm good with the times have changed we need to do background checks (however i just did one to obtain my glock) and the political BS that goes along with it (like tax on personal defense - its like a health insurance policy & should be tax free). Just another thing we could start a RANT on..
