I took my CHL class today and really enjoyed it. I will mail the packet to DPS Monday. Now it's just the waiting for the pin and then the plastic! One thing that did come out of the class, I had been thinking about a glock 19 or 26 but have decided to look for a compact 45. I now have a Colt Gold Cup 45 and really like it - it's just a little heavy to carry around.
