    I was told on another forum that Texas allows non residents to hold Texas CHLs. Or that you could move from Texas to another state and still be able to keep your Texas CHL under your new address in another state.

    I've never heard this except for this one person, is this true? Anyone know anything about this?

    Yes, it is true.

    Under new rules, which went into effect September 1, 2005, you may get a Texas CHL regardless of what state you live in. You must meet all other requirements for a Texas license, including taking the Texas training course in Texas. You also need to get a Texas identification card.

    In general the application process is to submit a Application Request to the Texas Department of Public Safety. You will also have to come to Texas to take a Texas CHL course. Then you fill out the application forms and submit them with your course certificate to DPS.

    Money wise, you'd be better off getting a Utah CCW license. Faster, easier and cheaper.

    Next would be Florida, if you are a veteran (no training required w/DD214).

    Neither of the above require traveling to those states.

    Last choice would be Tejas, I'm pretty sure you have to take the training in Texas, which means you wouldn't get the CCW license mailed back until after you've left the state. Lastly, between the price of the training and Texas license fees the cost would be the most of the three.

    Definitely true, but my biggest hitch is the Texas ID card requirement. I've moved to AZ and my TX CHL expires this year... I'd just as soon renew in AZ and lose out on reciprocity with a few states.

    I already have a Texas CHL. Took the course and everything almost 2 years ago. I guess when my DL is about to expire (in 2009) I should get a Texas ID card. Glad to hear this. Now I can have the benefits of Texas and Florida reciprocity.

    Thank you all
