I took my Texas CHL course yesterday and passed everything. Honestly, I was worried that a 10 hour class would get boring, but it was interesting the entire time. I had no problems with the shooting portion either. Even better, my wife took it with me and she passed all of her stuff too.

Now I just have to wait for my license to come in.

Looking forward to carrying for the first time!

Congratlations. It is well worth the time and effort to obtain your CHL.

I wasn't bored either. Had an excellent instructor. I do hope they don't reduce the classroom time. The 10 hours is needed for instruction and Q&A.

Congratulations to both of you.

A good instructor can and does make all the difference.

Let us know when the CHL's arrive!

I hope our license wait time is a little faster because we applied online and did our fingerprints before we took the class. All they need from us is our class certificates.

That's how I did mine and it was 38 days from the time I mailed everything.

But each case is different and YMMV. I hope you get yours faster!

Congratulations and well done you two! :thumb: The permit will be here before you know it. Applying on line speeds the process.

Congrats! I'm still trying to get the wife to get hers. I told her she doesn't have to carry, but if I have it with me and slip it into her purse it sure would be nice that she wouldn't have to worry abut it.

Congratulations and welcome to the world of being responsible for your own safety.

Just a bit of unsolicited commentary. Carrying a gun is not about carrying a gun. It is a mental state of readiness that is balanced by restraint, judgement, and the will to stand against those who would deprive you of your life or goods. There is more to say, and more to consider, but for now, just take the time to get your mind around the obligation to carry ALL the time. One of us may owe our life to you.

I know I'm gonna sound dumb, but what's a "wally walk"?
It's really nothing. Just sort of a tradition, when a member gets their carry license, we usually
tell them to go to their local Walmart to do a bit of shopping, while carrying their firearm, holstered, of course!

Thus, The Wallk Walk! :D
