First step down. 7 hour class. 99.9% sure I got 100% on the test. 25 multiple choice questions, only need 18 correct to pass, I'm not sure if they mail results, or it's just a pass/fail thing. The shooting test was a silhouette with the "coke bottle" outline in the center. 11 of 20 shots must be inside or on the line, I got all 20 inside. 2 people failed and had to re-take, but everyone passed at the end of the day. Taking firing orders on the line was new to me, I wish he prepped us a little better. I had this same instructor for some LE classes several years ago, he's pretty cool, but he was tough on the line though. I didn't have any problem keeping my finger off the trigger or keeping my weapon down range but he meant for us to load 10 mags in each mag so everyone would be empty action open at the same time. I loaded 12 and it caused a little problem but no big deal.

While I was there I asked him about my wife keeping a gun in the glove box. She's not a citizen but she is a permanent resident (naked Chinese girl in my avatar). He said it was cool, and said she should be able to get her cdwl too, which I thought was out of the question. He's going to get back to me on it, if so I just have to convince her to go though with it.

In keeping with the PG-13 rating that we're trying to maintain here you may not want to post the pics. HOWEVER, if you are willing to email them, I'm in!!!

Any with her armed (preferably right after the avatar pic was taken)?

Now start carrying around the house and conceling it so by the time you get your permit you will at least be somewhat used to having it on your hip, it will also give you a idea of how you want to carry IWB, OWB, Shoulder Holster ETC, remember most cheap holster will not work well for all day carry, if you have friends with the same gun and they are willing to let you try there holsters for a day it will save you some time and money making the right choice.

Sorry guy's, she only permits the avatar pic because it's so small lol.

I do wish our forum was more like this one: www.shadowriders.net
(from main page): "The Shadowriders forum is not censored and may offend some people.
No one under 21 please."
They tell you to "F*ck Off" the first few times you post and even have a section devoted to noob kills. And they got an " eye candy section" Anyway our forum is for gun owners and you have to be at least 18 to buy any gun.

What is the "wal-mart walk"?

Thanks for the advice guys.

Interesting forum. We try to be a little more "family friendly" around here, but each has its place I suppose.

Here is the concept of the Wally Walk. I borrowed this from the TXCHLforum:
You can see the original here:
http://www.texasshooting.com/TexasC...postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=wally+walk

This is common for new CHL holders, not just in Texas.

"So you got your CHL.

We assumed that you have already chose a proper holster, mag pouch (or suitable combination of substitutes) and cover garment and played dress-up in front of a mirror a couple of hundred times. But now, it is time to go live in the real world. It is time for you to go to WalMart!

1) You must park your vehicle at least 50 yards from the entrance of a regular WallyWorld (75 yards for a SuperCenter.) As you head for the entrance, you must perform a scan of the area including checking under parked vehicles for BG’s (Bad Guys.) Remember, grandma in an electric wheelchair is not a drive-by threat.

1A). Upon exiting car, surrepititiously adjust sidearm. Now don't touch it again unless your pants are about to fall off. Then tighten your belt

2) You MUST drive the shopping cart. No substitutes are allowed. Negotiating aisles full of screaming kids dropping cans of Chef Boyardee while Mom is on the cell phone and trying the latest Rosie O’Donnell Makeup & Fragrances is a good test of patience and self-control.

3) No quickies! Your stay at WallyWorld must last no less than 45 minutes. You can hang out in automotive and even double check the Rapala lures to see what’s new to kill an allotted rest time of 10 minutes. The rest of the time you must be on the move. An exception is made if you are with your significant other and she goes for the White Sale madness. You must park, wait and be ready to back your mate if things get hairy with the pillow throws or allergenic bedspreads.

4) You are gonna buy stuff so pick items from the top and bottom shelves to test your cover garment. Your mate can assist you and point out any deficiencies. If you are alone and store security or the cops have not arrived by the time you check out, you passed this test.

5) Check out: make sure you choose the busiest register. People will stand in close proximity and you must bear it with patience and avoiding contact. Beware of the people suddenly remembering a forgotten item and sending their mates to fetch it. They usually will brush against you on the way to get it.

6) Meal Time! If your WallyWorld serves Nachos, go ahead and get yourself a big serving of the suckers and wash it down with a Sam’s cola. If McD’s is the choice at the premises, get fries, onion rings, apple pie and a large Coke. ALL MEALS MUST BE CONSUMED ON SITE! No To-Go’s or you will be disqualified.

7) When you leave, repeat the scanning of the parking lot. Remember that now you are also dealing with a shopping cart that rattles like and old train and wants to go right all the time. Do not lose track of your surroundings because of this. If you have a car, open the trunk and introduce all your bags while facing outwards. Pick up Trucks: lower the tailgate and do the same. Keep scanning, you never know where the BG’s might be.

8) REMEMBER: Yellow lights = WallyWorld Security. Red Lights = Cops.

9) - Make test fall on floor in busiest area - near register or anywhere crowded. See if concealment can still be maintained. If you lose that then go back to GO and do NOT collect $200

10) Restroom break (even if you don't have to go), go through the motions, figure out what your going to do with your gun, while sitting on the commode"

Now you have done the Wally World Walk!
