I moved from the state of my birth to Texas the end of last year. I had carried with a CCW from my home state for more than a year and if I ever left the house without my EDC I felt like I had forgotten my pants or at least my shoes. The only time I would leave home without a weapon was if I had to go where one was not allowed. That normally was the Post Office and the Hospital.
I now have become a registered Texan so I can no longer use my CCW so I have applied for a LTC in Texas. So far the process is a lot faster and less expensive that my old state but of course the day my Texas Drivers license arrived I put my EDC in a lock box and bought a bigger safe. I get fingerprinted next Wednesday and then I have to take a class and qualify. But for some reason knowing most of my fellow citizens just might be packing, doesn’t matter if they are or not, makes the time it will take to get a LTC less stressful.
Oh I have had to pick my training class a bit farther away from home than my favorite range because they will be at some gun show by the time I get finger printed. But still a few extra days didn’t cause me to break out in a cold sweat. Some of you don’t know how lucky you are.
