I see you found my post :)

Welcome to the Forum. You may find some business as an IL Instructor here as Texas is recognized by IL as a "substantially similar" state, and you do not have to take the IL class in IL. A few of us here have received non-resident IL CCLs.

This a great forum, very civil, and a good resource for all the ins & outs of Texas gun laws.

The sun does shine more here, it also snarles from time, to time.

Welcome to the forum, and welcome to the great State of Texas. Just a word of warning, Austin, while the State Capitol, does seem to be filled with a lot of left wing liberals. When you get a chance, travel around the State, take in its history, and say hello to everyone you meet. You will find some of the best people here, and don't be surprised, if total strangers, wave at you, and shake your hand.

OP... If you ever decide to hold an IL CCL class here in TX, I'd like to know about it...
Hopefully it'll be nearby..

Welcome to the forum. When you get to Austin, please don't vote like the majority of Chicago folks! :biggrinjester:
I moved to Texas from Illinois (near St. Louis for 20 years) two years ago. Much more liberty and freedom here, at least for now. We have to keep the weirdos in Austin from turning Texas into another socialist third world hole.

Welcome to the best forum on the internet and the greatest state in the Union. :txflag:

I grew up in Southern Illinois but haven't lived there since Jr. High before the DOD moved our family overseas. I'm going West of Chicago next month to visit family who moved there last year. :nono: Going to have to figure out how to navigate the CC laws there.

Austin = The San Francisco of Texas.

Unless, you like living surrounded by leftists, anti-gun, anti self defense, and the traffic is dreadful.

On the plus side...nah, there isn't one.

To be fair, all large cities even in Texas are crammed to the gills/overwhelmed with dope smoking leftists.

Find a rural location to live (if that is you have a choice, perhaps you don't...) and you'll be good to go.

Welcome.

They lowered the LTC fee recently so that's good.
God, grant me serenity to accept the things I can't change
Courage to change the things I can
And the firepower to make a difference.
