Texas has changed CHL requirements

As of last Sunday, TX have cut the required training in half... Used to be 10 hours minimum. You can also renew online.

If you can now renew on-line, does that mean that you don't have to re-shoot the qualifying course of fire each time you renew?

How civilized. As far as I know, Texas is (was?) the ONLY state that required requalification with each renewal.

No more classes, or range quals for renewal of CHL. Just pay the fee.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.

Good news for us CHL holders, but not so great news for CHL instructors. I know at least one who does a lot more revenue in renewals than new licenses.

Texas CHL

Yeah, also there is no designation for revolver/semi auto... Whatever you test with gets you the ok for both types of pistol.

Folks I know hope that marketing post-CHL tactical training will take off. I tell everyone I know that the CHL course isn't enough. Nor is going to your ranch and shooting a rock or two.

But you know people. Every man is an instinctive warrior.

I think that's wishful thinking, Glenn. I'm sure some will have interest, but it's hardly going to be a flood of folks looking to improve their skills. A trickle, at best I'm afraid.

Sadly, not everyone who is qualified to teach the CHL course is qualified to teach tactical training. Although I suspect that lack of demand will be a bigger problem than lack of qualified instructors.

time & $$$.....

About 2 years ago I was looking into the armed security requirements for MS.
I spoke to a staff member in the state office who explained the process.
At first I considered the system lax & not well regulated but after some thought, I could see the logic behind it. Less red tape and hassles saves $ and time.
