Hey everybody. New to the board, and want to thank each and every one of you for all of the valuable information.
I have spent a few hours reading up on various guns etc. and have much more to learn.
Here is my question:
I just moved to Texas from Colorado. I still have my Colorado Drivers License.
Will this cause a problem with a background check for a new gun purchase?
I am wanting to pick up a new XD and am not sure if this is going to hold me back.
Just save the hassle and get the new license/ID. When I moved to Florida it gave me problems and I'll promptly get my new license/ID after I leave Florida.
IIRC you have to have a current ID for the state you buy it in and most states require you to prove residency for at least 3 months if your ID issue date is lessthan 3 mo..(power/phone bill etc)
In Texas you can buy a rifle with your Colorado DL. Once you get your TX DL you can purchase a handgun that day. All they do is call the FBI for a background check. When you get your TX CWL no background check is done.
Thanks for all the info everyone. I am taking off of work early tomorrow to go get the Texas ID. Then, off to the Shooters Station!
