So i'm back after being gone for 5 years. found my old post, and the question remains, am i eligible? i was in contact for a short time, from someone here via text message, but have since lost their number.
is the florida non resident still an option?
I don’t mean to be rude at all, but.....
have gone by since you originally asked the question. The closest
thing to a "sure" answer you’ve had up to this point is the one Charles L. Cotton gave you back in 2014—to whit: (a) a "non-disclosure" is NOT the same thing as a "sealed" record; and (b) an as-yet unconfirmed report that DPS treats
a non-disclosure the same as a "sealed" record. You can either believe that or not, but there is absolutely NO question that Mr Cotton is THE subject matter expert in the entire state when it comes to Texas LTC Law.
Nobody else here can peer into the mists of the future for you and tell if if you’re golden or not, or what will or won’t happen if you either use a FL non-resident license, or obtain a resident Texas LTC. You’re going to have to take a deep breath, and step out in faith that your application will go through if you do everything by the book; or go the FL license route and take your chances.
As to the question of whether a FL non-resident or a Texas LTC is the better option for you, you’ve had a number of people suggest you retain an attorney to find out. Exactly none
of these people are your attorney. Suggestions have been voluntarily offered out of good will, but none of it constitutes legal advice. Here’s my
advice: hire a lawyer who specializes in Texas firearm law, and follow his/her advice.
GET. A. LAWYER. ......in case you ignored anything written above....... then start from the top with him/her. This is just an Internet forum.....a very good one.....but still.....
Nobody can make up your mind for you.
