If you haven't gotten your CHL......why not?
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.
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.
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.
If you can afford HKs, surely you can afford a CHL!
Just messin with ya man
