Took CHL class 5/27, submitted application/documents 5/29. 5/30, Green checks for all except Background, Fingerprints, Printing. Fingerprint status today still shows Red, other 2 Yellow. I went 6/5 to Identogo and had my digital fingerprints done. ISSUE: During one hand’s 4 finger prints, “low quality” showed, she redid and got a green check. Other hand was ok. She went on to do individual finger prints. Right hand did fine and I am right handed. Left hand...2 fingers showed “failed to match”, she redid finger 3 times, all showing failed to match. She would move on to next finger. I thought she must know what she is doing so didn’t ask any questions. I googled it when I got home and saw that if fingerprints can’t be read during background check, you may have to go back and redo. If they can’t read the second time a name only background check will be done, greatly adding to the timeline. I have nothing for them to uncover in my background, always lived in Tx, so a shame if this creates any time lag.
Anybody else encountered this issue?

My thoughts would be:

1) Digital imaging for prints is nice because you don’t get the smearing of ink and the print “lines” can have better clarity. But with that said, sometimes people’s fingerprints just don’t print well regardless of the medium (ink or digital). I saw it a lot during the days of an ink pad; the distortion was sometimes horrible and there are less instances with digital printing but it still happens.

2) If you ever had your fingerprints taken before such as for a background check for work or something else then the FBI will have them on file then they can do a 99.99%+ match based on your name and other vital information by performing a comparative analysis with the latest round of submitted fingerprints. It’s a fairly simple process and only takes a few minutes longer.

3) You saying you’ve lived your entire life in Texas doesn’t mean much to the DPS. For example, they know things happen on vacation or spring break. [ :woohoo ] Anyway, the DPS will have to do a national search based on your name and other data such as DOB, race, gender, height, weight, etc. Anything unique helps their process but it will take much longer.

I know… it sucks.

No, never had my fingerprints done before. I am 71 and NOT unique soooo this may be a long process.

Just wanted to jump on this thread, to update everyone on the newest LTC holder in the Jusme family. :hurry:
Mrs. Jusme took her LTC class on March 18, due to a death in the family she didn't get fingerprinted until the second week of April, but received her plastic on May 7.

She still does not carry everyday, but is looking into different carry methods. I'm very proud of her. She had said for years, that she didn't need to carry a gun, but, seeing the current state of the country, and the need for protection, wherever one may be, has convinced her that being armed, is necessary.
Take away the Second first, and the First is gone in a second :rules: :patriot:

I filed my application and submitted finger prints on 5/10. Submitted my LTC-100 yesterday 7/22. Background check and finger prints still show Under Review. Emailed them today, will probably follow up with a phone call. Kind of ridiculous that 2 1/2 months later, they haven't ok'd my background or prints.

Update:
Was told they don't start processing anything until all required documents are received. Bummer.
