Hello! First post here! My name is Laura, and I have recently purchased my first fire arm. After weeks of going to a rental range, and trying guns out over and over I finally settled on the Glock 26. About 2 months ago, our home was broken into and my husband was not home in the middle of the night. The man used a crow bar to pry my front door. Luckily, my dog began barking which a) alerted me that something was wrong, and b) scared off the intruder. We live on a military base, and I felt a huge false sense of security. Ever since the incident I have felt vulnerable, and constantly worried this person may come back. I have never been more driven to take training classes, get my concealed permit, and be able to protect my son and I should I ever need to. I don’t want to be put into a situation, and become a sitting duck.
Anyways! That is my story, and how I found TWAW. I am enjoying reading all the articles and learning so much. I have a question about laws and reciprocity. We will be moving to Texas at the end of April. My question, if I take my CC class in North Carolina, will I be able to use that certificate to apply for a permit in Texas or would I need to retake the class? The class instructor I have been talking to, wasn’t sure and stated the would look it up and get back with me. However, I haven’t heard anything back and I’m just wondering if it would be a waste of time/money to take the class in one state, and possibly have to retake in another state. I have tried looking up the answer, but can’t find any information on this.
Thank you so much for your help!

I’m sorry that happened to you! I’ve had similar situations, and worse, and I’ve held a CWP for decades. Perhaps you’ll find the following site helpful:
It seems you can research state-to-state reciprocities so you can make an educated decision.
I, too, recently selected a Glock after trying 14 different semi-automatics, but I went with the 42 “baby Glock”. I’m loving it!
So good luck, and hope this helps!

Reciprocity generally refers to honoring a resident of another state’s permit while you’re visiting. If all you’ve taken is the class, you would have to research the requirements within the state of Texas to see what their specific requirements are, maybe within the individual county. Just look up the local jurisdiction permit issuer that you’re moving to and they should have all those resources.
