Moving to Texas from CT
« on: April 22, 2018, 01:21:11 PM »
Greetings.
I am happy to say that I am moving to Texas. With that said, I was wondering if you all can help me with guns laws in the state.
1. waiting periods/requirements for handguns.
2. waiting periods/requirements for shotguns.
3. waiting periods/requirements for semi-automatic rifles (M1A, AR15) Lever action rifle (Winchesters)
4. shooting ranges in the Frisco TX area.

Thank you in advance for any help/advice
-Franklin.

I can help with the first 3.  Once you get a Texas ID or DL the waiting time is zero, none, zilch.  Unless FBI puts a hold for some reason.

I don't live in Frisco (so, can't help with that) - but yea - no waiting periods, other than the wait at the register to pay  :P

Hey from Plano.
Get a Texas LTC (License to Carry). Lots of benefits.
Check out Frisco Gun Club, or Bullet Trap in Plano, Garland public range in Garland, or Elm Fork in East Dallas.

PS. Texas does have a new law that requires you to buy a gun here that is prohibited in the state you’re coming from. (JK)  :th_thicon_idea:

Hey, I lived in Uncasville in the 90s. I sold my home I built in the woods because the Mohegan Sun opened. The purple haze in the night sky ruined my view.

And. . . I got an ungodly offer from a black jack table operator so I took the money and ran.  :th_thicon_lol:

Waiting requirements are generally limited to the time it takes for the credit card company to approve the transaction.
