Texas does not honor the concealed carry permits from states where the background checks are not sufficient to Texas' standards, or at least that used to be how it was. In Texas, you get a more thorough background check for a CHL than for becoming a LEO and there are facets that can disqualify a person from getting a CHL that would not disqualify that person from becoming a LEO.
