    WI CHL in TX?

    Anyone know if it might be allowed, or too soon to tell?

    I meet all the reqs for the WI one, but may be taking relocating for a job in TX.

    Everything about the TX one sounds like a big pain, in terms of money and time.

    $100s, 12hr course, 6 week wait....

    In WI I meet all the reqs, in multiple ways, so it just would make life much easier.

    Here I thought that TX was going to be the motherrland for the 2nd Am. supporter, but the more I read, the more I cringe.

    Appreciate any comments.

    If anyone comes in here to be a negative Nancy, don't waste your time posting. Lately there's been a lot of posters just trying to start crap. I'm not interested in the fact that your life sucks and you have to start crap on here to make you feel better about yourself.

    "Negative Nancy"..... That just cracks me up.... As far as the rest of the paragraph..... + 1000

    On point... I have not looked at Texas laws so I cannot offer an reply to the question except I am thinking a little too soon to tell...

    Officially, too soon to tell. If I were a betting man, I'd say any state that accepts a FL permit, will accept a WI one.

    The moment you establish residency in TX, your WI permit, if you did get one, would be invalid, because only WI residents may possess a WI permit.

    Good point. I suppose I could ask in the TX forum if an accepted state's CHL can qualify for a TX CHL. $200 and 9-12hrs of classes is worth looking for a way around if a DD214 isn't good enough for them.

    Texas accepts a Utah permit. If you apply for a Utah permit before the WI takes effect, you do not need a WI permit to apply for a UT permit. If you apply after 01 November 2011, UT will require a WI permit. However, you will not be able to reapply for the UT permit until you have a TX permit if you live in TX.

    An alternate strategy would involved getting a WI permit and then an AZ permit. TX accepts the AZ permit. There is always also the Florida option.

    i got the sneaky feeling, knowing the state of state revenue and all, Texas, and LEO Texans would like best to see a Texas permit if your a bonafide resident down there. kinda like Wis LEO's will expect to see a Wisconsin DL follow a Wisconsin permit. Proof that you spent your money, as in them you trust, so to speak. Getting around things may not be worth the extra effort. i'd say once you get there, if Wis permit carries any weight there, stroll around on your Wis DL and permit, until you got a bill with your Texas residence on it, then make the switch. let me know what their permit cards look like. i hear everything is bigger in Texas.
