Hi all. I just moved out the west side of Houston. I just moved out from the Sacramento, CA area, where I previously spent the last 2 decades. I recently got serious about firearms about 18 months ago, but had been around them all my life as my dad was a fan of hunting.

I am quite happy to finally be rid of all the restrictions of purchasing a gun and not having to register anything. Just finished filling out the forms to have California remove my list of guns registered in their state. I have yet to make any new firearm purchases, as we are still settling in to our home, but am looking forward to getting something fun.

I have a CCW from being out in California, but was recently told by the Sacramento Sheriff department that it's no longer valid now that I moved. So, I have to look in to getting the Texas CHL. I've been reviewing the laws for TX CHL holders and there is one huge issue I see. Why the heck can't a CHL owner concealed carry in to a school building?! That is ridiculous! Even in California with all their insane restrictions, I could lawfully carry on school premises with my CCW. I thought Texas would know better than that.

So far, we are really enjoying our new home and the Houston area. I look forward to getting the chance to meet other gun enthusiasts out here and seeing some really cool guns that California would not allow. I will be spending a lot of time reading up in these forums to get acquainted with how things work out here and finding local gun groups and ranges. I used to be a participating member of CalGuns while out in California, which had a great bunch of people who loved guns but hated the laws out there as well.

Thanks for letting me introduce myself. I look forward to discussing topics and meeting some of you as time goes by.

Gunz are icky.
Welcome.

Getting your Texas CHL should be easy for you.

Good luck.

Welcome to TGT.

Curious...

When you had your guns removed from the CADOJ registry, did you have to send them any proof of where you actually moved to or did you just fill out a form with your new address and that was it?

Thank you everyone for the warm welcomes!

Southpaw, the form is found here: https://oag.ca.gov/sites/all/files/agweb/pdfs/firearms/forms/BOF4546NLIP0209.pdf?

You fill out the form and choose moved to new state option, and yes, they require proof of residency.
