Accessing juvinile records

I've decided that it's time to apply for my CHL but I'm going to have a problem filling out the paper work accurately because I don't remember details about some charges I got when I was a juvenile. Does anyone know where I could start looking to access this information? I'm guessing that going to t...

Re: Carry rules for non CHL citizens

Thanks for the link Flightmare. I'll definitely check it out since I like listening to podcasts while working. I live in Katy, Texas which is just West of Houston in Harris County. Does anyone know a lawyer or anyone that specializes in CHL's in my area? I may need some help applying for my CHL. Not...

Re: Carry rules for non CHL citizens

The castle law is what confused me about carrying to and from my home, vehicle, or place of business. I didn't realize that I needed to own the gas station in order to carry at my vehicle while at the gas station. I definitely feel dumb for making this assumption. I guess I've been very lucky in the...

Re: Carry rules for non CHL citizens

Yes I'm aware of the downfalls of Mexican carry. I literally never Mexican carry any of guns (especially my Glock) but that day I had my 1911 and had the safety on. And apparently I won't be carrying any weapon on my person in the future until I get my license. I'm glad that I posted about this beca...

Re: Carry rules for non CHL citizens

I posted above a few reason why I haven't tried to get the license yet. Mainly because I never felt the need for it with my lifestyle. I'm either at work or at home where I keep my trusted AR close. I rarely ever feel the need to carry a handgun on my person except for the types of situations I just...

Re: Carry rules for non CHL citizens

Yeah that is pretty scary C-dub. I would say that if that were to happen I would comply as best as possible to their demands and hope they don't shoot! Then I would sue the police department later! lol That is one of the main reasons I feel like open carrying my rifle isn't a good idea! A fear of be...

Re: Carry rules for non CHL citizens

Thanks for the replies and advice everyone. I never thought I needed a license because I'm usually at home or at work and never felt the need to physically carry a handgun on my person while at those places. While I'm working it would be very uncomfortable if not impossible to carry a handgun on my ...

Re: Carry rules for non CHL citizens

Wow! I see now that I've been in violation a few times. This doesn't happen very often at all but it has happened which is why I wanted to clear some of those situations up. Guess I won't be doing that anymore. With that said....would I still be in violation to defend my life if the weapon was retri...

Re: Carry rules for non CHL citizens

Thanks for the quick response Jusme. I rarely ever have to do this but last week there were some obvious gang members at the gas station (I recognized the tattoos) that were seriously giving me the creeps and I was pretty much scared for my life. I also had my daughter with me so I felt like I didn'...

Carry rules for non CHL citizens

Hi everyone. I'm new to the site and don't have a license to carry. There has been some situations that I'm not sure about whether or not I'm following the law 100% by carrying my pistol and wanted to clear up some questions about these situations. I usually keep a loaded gun in the glove box of my ...
