Was just wondering. I have a permit to carry in Oregon and Washington. I am thinking about getting a permit for Texas, since I will be spending time down there periodically.

I noticed that one has to show proficiency in fireing there weapon to obtain a permit in texas.

What is the test like in texas? What constitutes as a pass, or a fail?

50 rounds from up real close to about 15 feet. Very easy, I did it twice already. If you can't pass this, you should not carry. Good luck, John

Heck, we may have reciprocity, check packing.org and see.



You can get a montana permit with the one you have, probably by just requesting one.  Then, you are already qualified in Texas.

No reciprocity with Oregon and Washington.

The shooting test is graded on points.

Piece of cake, last time I took the test it was 50 shots, at 3, 5 and 15 yards. I aced it without even trying.

When I took the test I shot next to this lady and she passed, if that tells you anything.

Texas won't issue you a permit, as you reside in a state with a concealed carry law.  Texas only issues non-resident permits to residents of states without carry laws, like Illinois, Missouri, Ohio, etc.

However, you can get a Florida non-resident permit (by mail even), which is good in Texas and a lot of other states too.
