    Screwed in Texas???

    Here is my dilema. I live in Texas. Had a CHL in 2000, let it expire. Got a Class A misdemenaor for "Hunting from a vechile" in Nov of 2005. have waited for 5 years to be eligbile to Re-Apply for a new Texas CHL I also got arrested on a BS charge in September of 2007 on a Class B misdemenor, received deferred adjudication for it, no conviction on my criminal record (just checked at the County Clerk's office to verify that)- but since I had deferred adjudication the Texas DPS considers that to be a conviction, which means I cannot recieve a Texas CHL until September 2012. I did not know this till I paid the $100 bucks for the CHL class at my local gun range, as I had really thought that my Class B misemeanor was a Class C, but it turns out that it was not....
    IS it possible for me to obtain a CHL from any other state if I am a resident of Texas, that would be recognized in TEXAS so I could legally carry? I currently can carry in my Vehicle because of the Texas Castle Doctrine, but I want to be able to carry on my person. Any info would be Greatly appriciated. thanks Ya'll.

    Short answer; No. If your state won't issue you a CCW neither will another. You've shown that you don't have good moral character. You've been caught and have to suffer the repercussions for your actions.

    Don't know how old you are, but sounds to me like you need to grow up some before you should be allowed to carry a gun.
    Sounds like a pattern to me, and that's not good.

    self screwed....

    yeah, you guys pegged me! one time hunting from a vehicle,- Class A, and 1 bad check from my bank account, class B- (thank you computer system for sending my direct deposit into someone elses account, taking nearly a month to straighten out..) boy I guess I really am a CAREER criminal... I guess you guys on here have never had anything go wrong? Glad you aren't the ones deciding whether or not I can purchase a firearm... Just think about how ridiculious it would be if you had a bad check because of a banking error, and it cost you an arrest, should you loose your privlege to carry? I don't think so. But you are entitled to your opinion.

    That isn't true. Quite a few states have denied thier own residents a CCL while Florida will issue them one. I personally had a Misdemeanor drug charge 20years ago when I was in college. I have had a clean record since, but Ohio still denied me a CCL, while FL approved me in 3 weeks. I am actually on BATFE's VAF list with a UPIN # to fast track all my purchases of firearms, including SBR and Suppressors. Penn, Ohio and a couple states up the east coast have been complaining about their residents getting a FL ccl while being denied in their own states.

    As for the OPs eligibility, I don't know. Yes hunting from a vehicle is pretty reckless. The OP and others do have to realize that you have a greater responsibility when carrying. I have seen hot heads who should have never been issued one, still picking fights. It is like a ticking time bomb.

    Try Florida. They will recongnize any hunter/gun safety course given by an approved NRA and other organizations. Look for my thread in the CCW section.

    Funny how some of you guys scream your gawd-given 2a rights from the rooftops, no compromise, no interpretation - SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.

    Then you pile on a guy that can't get a license because of stupid admistrivia and a hunting violation.

    Hypocrites.

    Looks like you have the five-year wait from your 2007 adjudication in Texas. The arrest and adjudication is going to show up in another State so not only is your chance of getting a concealed carry permit from there not likely - the the Texas code is specific about non-residents and residents (you) carrying on a permit from another State (only non-residents can). Use the motorist protection law best you can. Expect to be hassled if pulled over and the LEO runs 10-27 and 10-29 on you and you have already informed him/her of the gun on board. Other posters here are correct - you need to clean up and stay outta trouble - next time might be a felony conviction which will definately crimp your ability to protect yourself and your family.

    Yea, you pegged us. Hypocrites. People who choose to obey the law and look down on those who break the law. Bingo! We don't live in Ivory Towers either, but when someone asks what's wrong here and we make suggestions (like quit breaking the law, or grow up) we're the hypocrites?
    Kill them all and let God sort them out!
