    As the law permits non US citizen to hold a CHL so long as they are something like a Permanent Resident Alien (read Green Card holder like me), I did my CHL class and mailed the app this past weekend. Given that its taking something like 4-6 months to issue CHL to you fine upstanding US born and breads, I’m taking bets on how long it will take to get mine! I figure it will be about renewal time ! :happy0001:

    Seriously any imports have any experience ..... or wagers ?

    I've had several Resident Aliens get their license. They took about as long as everyone else.

    I was going to ask who paid for it, but then I realized you said LEGAL ALIEN, otherwise I thought maybe the taxpayers were footing the bill... lol

    Friend, if I had my say, they would issue you a pistol and a box of ammo with your CHL.....The damned illegals no doubt have their illegal pistols
    so we need to even the score !!

    Besides living in your former land where firearms are frowned upon was a
    punishment you should not have ever had to bear. God gave you the right to defend yourself, your family and your posessions, no Queen or obama
    has the right to rule otherwise !! God Bless Texas !! :texas:

    About the (only) way I can think to answer and give the full correct phrase is with the equivalent American phrase which is (& probably spelt incorrectly)……….
    “Bada-Bing, Bada-Boom”

    So, I applied for my CHL and “Bob’s your Uncle, Fanny’s your aunt” (bada-bing, bada-boom) it came in the mail. :gotme:
    Beyond this I have no clue how it came to be. Talk about two countries separated by a common language :hammerhead:
