It hurts just thinking about. I canít even begin to imagine how awful it would be. I had an army buddy send me an awful firearm training aid one day.

Pics? (j/k)

The place I last took it in GP supplied all the students with the same model Glock 9mm semi-autos for range qualification. None of this 50-cal Desert Eagle nonsense, LOL. My latest renewal is all done online...I don't necessarily think this is a good idea because I still believe everyone should have to demonstrate some basic proficiency with handling a firearm. I'm expecting to have to get re-fingerprinted in digital format since the last time I renewed the DPS was still able to use my old paper fingerprint records.

Yeah I consider myself to be pretty wise around guns.....it just didn't click in my head....new gun, different hand position and opposite hand....betcha I don't do it again...and I bet the guy in the class won't either. It stung for a few minutes...I just waited for it to stop bleeding and fired from my normal hand for the remainder of the day. Got a nice little scar on my thumb from it.

Told you it was pretty easy. Glad you got it done though. Everyone should do it.

Sounds like you went to Academy for Firearms Training off of Main Street. I took my last two classes there before they changed the law on the renewals were it was just online. Good place.

It definitely is, I used their FFL too just this last December. They seemed to still be pretty busy with first-time LTC applicants and I was glad to see that.

Cool! Been meaning to stop by there just to see what they have in stock and compare prices. I like that place and it's close to my house. And I agree that they shouldn't have done away with the class for renewals, everybody should have to demonstrate that they can hit what they are aiming at. Even if it's not that hard.

I took my initial CHL class in west FTW, the next renewal in Whiskey Flats, and the two after that at the Academy. My wife and our son both took their initial CHL training there too. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone. We'll see if the old ink fingerprint card they did there two renewals ago stands up to DPS scrutiny, but I'm expecting to be told I have to get digital prints done in Arlington. The cost of renewal really has come down since it's now done all online.

Yep I agree! Uploaded all my stuff a few days ago so now I just sit and wait...



I hope I listed my previous addresses correct on the app...since I had two to list and couldn't really remember the exact dates I moved from one place to another.

Just looked at my renewal application status online and see that my LTC has been mailed. Quick turnaround in my opinion, all things considered. I was pleasantly surprised that I did not need to go have digital fingerprints submitted, my old ink fingerprint card(s) done previously at the Academy for Firearms Training were still deemed acceptable.

Did my renewal online last month for the first time as well. Didn't need to send anything in either. I think I had my new card in hand in 3 weeks.
