Question on TX Concealed Carry Law

I've recently relocated to TX from AZ. I have a CCW from AZ. Do I need to get a TX concealed carry permit now that I am a TX resident or is my AZ CCW still good?

I've read through the TX concealed carry law and cannot find the answer and have had several conflicting responses from co-workers.

IIRC, once you have been a TX resident long enough to be required to have a TX drivers license, you'll need to get a TX CHL.
Until someone here posts the section of code, call a local CHL instructor and ask.
Try here as well: http://www.texaschlforum.com

No such requirement. Texas has reciprocity with a number of states and their permits are honored here as pictured below. I have several friends with out of state permits because getting a Texas CHL was taking too long.

I'd advise calling DPS or seeing a direct statement to the matter on their site to be sure rather than trusting any other internet source.

Second, even if it was legit - can you be sure that local law would think so as you want to avoid the ride and complaining later.

Looks like it's covered under GC 411.173. NONRESIDENT LICENSE. Page 7 of the PDF points you to what is page 12 in the PDF to start.
