Welcome, 308 and Dennis!

Hot Wells is the closest range for me, so I'm there fairly regularly. Only on the weekends, though. And when the weather gets nice like last Saturday, the parking lot stays pretty full.

Charles and the Moderators run a great site for us. Have fun!

Dawg: When I took my CHL class on the 22nd, the general concesus there seemed to be that it was taking 2 to 2 1/2 weeks for the applications to be received. Some of the folks in the class had their app with them, others still hadn't received theirs. Others may have a better guideline for you. Hope i...

Cyphur, thanks for the note. Actually, I know the basics of what I'll buy as my primary carry gun, just not the model. I'm a shameless 1911 fan. I intend to have a broken-in and reliable carry in a few months, but it'll be the same footprint and mechanics I'm already used to. What I'm really doing i...

Dustin, so close together that, yep, we'll have to watch and compare notes. Mine was received in Austin October 26; I sent it return receipt, but I don't have the receipt back yet. The wheels are in motion. And I really don't mind the wait. I haven't settled on the right carry package for me, and wo...

Since I'm now officially in the room--handed mine to the kind folks at the USPS office October 24--it's a good thing it'll be cold enough soon to light the fireplace. I always enjoy a fire when sitting around talking with friends and sipping at a glass of good Port. We can get NFL games in HD in her...

TraCoun: Charles Cotton and I will be conducting an NRA Personal Protection in the Home class on 11/10 and 11/18/06. I may be blind (geez, I hope not; not if I'm carryin'), but I don't see posted on the boards here or the ArGent site the location of the upcoming " In the Home" class. Will it be at P...

Thanks, Jason. I hope to be able to contribute to the two-way street. (My father and grandfather were Masons, by the way; and one ancestor founded the third Lodge in Texas.)

And welcome, gamboolman. 'Round here (Houston), working in the Oil Patch is a badge of honor. A tip o' the Stetson to you.

:iagree: Yep; I think having both photos signed by the applicant and fingerprinter makes perfect sense. Should we have an elaboration on The Checklist, though, so folks won't freak out if they find themselves with only one signed photo in hand after they finish a class-with-fingerprints-included? An...

Still on Photo Signing

I took my class yesterday, and as part of it a PD sergeant did our fingerprints. The instructor said they've done about 4,000 applicants so far, and we were told the applicant and fingerprinter signed one photo only, the one that gets clipped to the paperwork; the one that gets taped into the photo ...
