    I apologize for this question because I'm sure its been beat to death in the past.. I searched and searched but can't find it on this (or other) forums. Google only gives me results that are years old...

    Is it (or was it ever) still true that if you are buying a firearm from an FFL in Texas and you have a Texas CHL, the FFL can skip the NCIS background check?

    Thanks!

    Yes The Brady Law has a provision to allow CHLs to skip NICS. The Texas CHL was designed to meet this requirement. There is a box on the 4473 the FFL checks saying no NICS required.

    And FYI it is NICS not NCIS. :-)

    Not if you purchase your firearm from a military exchange in Texas. Your Texas CHL does not allow you to skip a NCIS background check.
