Re: App. process time if I recently held LTC in Washington st?

The FBI requires a new set every time. A license from another state is irrelevant to the Texas process. :smash: Not always. I think it depends on the quality of the prints on file, and since Texas (mostly) uses digital prints, once they have a good set, you should be OK. I just renewed recently and...

The training is good for two years,
Actually, if I recall correctly, the training is only good for one year (changed in the last legislative session). I'm sure I read that on here somewhere and confirmed it myself, but I don't remember where it's stated - perhaps the Administrative Code.

Re: Self-defense help?

I believe you said you're in Houston. If so, you might want to check out Shiloh Shooting Range on Shiloh Church Road (FM 1960 & SH 249 area). They have competition shooting on Thursday evenings (USPSA on the first and last Thursday, and IDPA on the other Thursdays). They also have classes on Sunday ...

The last comment I read in that listing (today) said the signs were gone when the poster returned to take pictures.

Re: 4 Years of responsible CC, now time to renew. Need some help pls.

I might be mistaken, but if you look at the online status, if the "Fee Received" is green, and you only paid the $25.00, I would think that shows that they have the proof that you paid the correct fee - i.e. DD-214.

Re: 4 Years of responsible CC, now time to renew. Need some help pls.

The DD214 is not just for retired military - you also have one when you left the service without retiring. In order to get the discounted ($25) price, you have to show proof that you were honorably discharged. If you already submitted it (when you got your first license), you should not have to subm...

Re: Holster suggestions for Sig 365

I have read that the Blackhawk Serpa for the Shield (I know - some folks really hate this holster) fits the P365 perfectly.

I bought the Tulster IWB kydex holster and it's great. The P365 is small enough that there is absolutely no discomfort with it IWB.

Good luck.

Thanks. I know it used to be that way, but somewhere I had read a post that said the GC had changed it.

Re: LTC class tonight - Application question - Background

They didn't really cover this topic too much in class tonight and I'm not in any big hurry to get the actual license since the LTC100 is good for 2 years. C I'm not an instructor, but I've heard that a recent change makes the LTC-100 only good for one year now. Perhaps KeithB can clarify for you. G...

Re: Gunsmith in Houston Heights

I seem to have lost his card, but you might be thinking of Herman Mueschke. He's in the Heights and kinda like a large old garage. I'll keep looking for his info, and if I find it again, I'll let you know. (I was given his info by the fine folks at Collector's Firearms).
