Yes, you can submit the CHL-100 now. Best way is to scan to a file (preferably a .pdf) and upload that file to RSD.
go to http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/RSD/contact/default.aspx and select 'handgun licensing' from the dropdown. under 'select option' pick "submit LTC supporting documents". Fill out the identity info in the form, choose and attach files. You should get an email acknowledging your upload(s) in 0 to 3 days.
Fingerprints are submitted electronically by the fingerprint service provider. Some folks scan and submit the paper receipt you are given at the fingerprint service location. It's a way of nudging RSD to "Hey! Look for my prints in the incoming queue!". You can also login to the fingerprint provider's site from the info on the paper receipt and look up when they deliver your file to RSD. Then you can start counting.........probably 65 calendar days minimum.
