Re: Got a Funny call from my state rep today

Hey fellers...sorry to come off harsh. Maybe the wait is making me stir crazy. I don't feel the least bit of harshness toward you folks. I do stand behind my comments on the fairness of processing applications. It should be simple...I don't feel any application should get pulled up front because a p...

Re: Got a Funny call from my state rep today

I did not contact my rep on behalf of myself, I emailed her to see what can be done concerning the problem DPS has in keeping up. I did not expect, nor do I expect any special treatment at the expense of others. LOL...if you really mean that. Send an email to your rep stating that in no uncertain t...

Re: Got a Funny call from my state rep today

You can believe what you want about their motives, but EVERYONE should get moved up until they are delivering them on time, according to the law. They put a time limit on issuance specifically to prevent "slow walking" by bureaucrats or under funding by legislatures. Everyone should get theirs on t...

Had they given DPS an adequate budget, none of this would be happening!
Amen to that!!!!

Re: Got a Funny call from my state rep today

You misunderstand -- he is not asking to "go ahead in the line" but rather, as you should do too, asking The Management to fix the problem by putting on more cashiers. IF you let an agency infringe your rights then they will -- DPS has good people they probably need more manpower but that is up to ...

Re: Got a Funny call from my state rep today

Try to justify it all you want. It doesn't change the fact that anyone doing this knows for a fact that they are getting moved up ahead of others because they are calling in the State Rep. People!!! Please!!! Let's not try to put some kind of sick twisted "honorable spin" on this game. I have alread...

Re: Got a Funny call from my state rep today

And, yes, it is cutting in line. I was not aware of a line, at least in the traditional sense... :eek6 What would you call it then? Applications arrive and get serviced on a first come, first serve basis. CB's rep calls down there throwing some weight around. Regular Joe gets shoved to the side so ...

Re: Got a Funny call from my state rep today

Maybe some of us should complain to our State reps about getting pushed to the back of the line by the other State reps demanding special treatment for the ones who can't wait like the rest of us.

Re: New to the room... Mailed on Thursday second day!

Sounds like a plan then! So there is basically ZERO communication between The Texas CHL department and us? What if they need extra documentation? Or thee is an error? Or... or... or... etc... get my point. What IF! How do I know we are on schedule for the next 6 months? Should I give them a call on...

Re: New to the room... Mailed on Thursday second day!

So it means they probably received the application Saturday or Today ( I haven't checked the confirmation system at the USPS website) But now my question is this: How will I receive my PIN and how long does it usually take for them to issue it? I'd like to be able to track my application online =D ...

Re: WTB New Ruger LCP - North DFW area

I am on the bullet trap wait list. Been on it for a couple months. Last I checked I was number 32 in line. I paid 279 for it. Put down a deposit of 80 bucks to get on the darned list. Now I just hope they go in order and don't play games for their buddies. EDIT...I just called them. I am now number ...

Re: March Applicants

Today is the 90th day following the date my check was cashed. I received my PIN# 75 days ago. The rib hasn't even received a PIN# yet which I assume means her application has not yet been entered into the "system." Per an e-mail forwarded to my district representative 9 days ago: The CHL Bureau is ...
