    FOUND IT:
    https://www.dps.texas.gov/rsd/ltc/LTCChecker/

    I saw a link on this forum that allows a seller to check the status of a buyer's LTC. Can anyone point me to that link?

    I had a seller decline to sell to me as an LTC holder and wanted to use an FFL for the transfer because he stated that there's no way to verify if a card was still valid. I'm not flaming him because it's his gun/his rules and he'd have to live with the repercussions of selling to the wrong guy if he did a straight sale.

    I'd like to forward the link to him if I can find it.

    Thanks!

    You can check the status of an application for the license or renewal but not for being current.

    https://txapps.texas.gov/txapp/txdps/ltc/

    The date on the card shows the expiration date. That should show if it is current or not.

    I keep rereading your post, hoping I'm misunderstanding it, or putting my own bias on it. This link is only to check the status of your LTC application. It is not a way for someone to check if your LTC is current.

    If you're saying this guy stated in advance he wanted an LTC for the sale, and you don't have yours yet, and expect someone to take your word for it, then you are the ******* in this situation and should stop wasting this individuals time.

    If however, you have your LTC, and this guy springs the FFL thing on you at the last minute, then **** him and don't waste your time trying to buy a gun from someone whose ideas of a firearm sale belong in California, New York, or Illinois. If this is the case, and it's a member of this forum, you should tell us who, so that none of us waste our precious time trying to deal with someone like that. We want to look him straight in the eye and tell him what a cheap, lying, no good, rotten, four flushing, low life, snake licking, dirt eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood sucking, dog kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat assed, bug eyed, stiff legged, spotty lipped, worm headed sack of monkey shit he is.

    Hallelujah! Holy Shit! Where's the Tylenol.

    A little off topic but there are some Academy's if not all of them that do back ground checks even with a present LTC. I also heard that Bass Pro Shop in Katy has the same policy.

    I have an LTC, just issued last week.
    The seller's post stated that the transfer would need to go through an FFL. I contacted him and asked if a current LTC and bill of sale would work instead of going to an FFL. He replied that there is no way to determine if an LTC was still valid or if it had been revoked.

    I thought I'd seen a link on this site that allowed a seller to verify an LTC through the DPS. I did:

    Not many FFLs are open during my offtime, I've been working at the Dallas terminal from 9:00am to 8:00pm so I was hoping to meet and buy at a local PD parking lot or coffee shop, whatever the seller is comfortable with.

    I think the seller is being anal but as you said, his gun/his rules. There are 1000s of other deals available but if you feel THIS one is a must have, I recommend you go through a FFL so the individual does not have your personal info. Just my .02
