    No CHL

    Don't need one. I can carry nationwide (and do) without one, for me it seems like just a waste

    I'm waiting to see if I get in to the police academy. If I get through that, then I won't need a CHL.

    Don't get me wrong, nothing against yall police officers...but I don't think yall should be able to carry nation wide like that if we (CHL holders) can't. I actually think every law abiding citizen should be able to carry concealed without one anyways.

    But you're right, if I was a police officer I'd carry nation wide too.

    I agree 100%. I also think we should be able to open carry in TX too. I don't know if I actually would, but it would be nice to have the option.

    I have mine.

    One of the first in the state to do so.

    And so, now will be my 3rd renewal.

    It seems all I need to do is have the finger prints, photo.

    The local range/CHL place says $50 for processing the paper work.

    No class and no proficiency test. :cool:

    I don't think being a Police Officer has anything to do with it. I'm not saying I know the laws etc. but I don't think every state in the union would give a crap about an officer from another state when it comes to carrying. Required in your own jurisdiction or state maybe.

    I'm curious how/if TXShooter carries legally nationwide, unless you have Federal License? But I think non-LEO's with Federal license are bound to not disclosing; I could be wrong. I'm going by what little I know form someone I know who is a Federal Air Marshal and Pilot.

    Since you brought it up, I'd be interested in knowing. Multi-state CHL's and reciprocation are great, but it's complicated in so many states. Even some with open carry I believe require you to be a resident of that state, otherwise, leave home without it. :D

    Somehow I think a LEO, not from D.C. or Mass., would find himself in some difficulty in those places.

    A LEO from Pa., on another forum, was arrested at LAX for carrying. Had to go to court to get exonerated.
