FL does the same thing so basically for the cost of the permits you can get a CCW in almost every state except I believe two if I'm not mistaken CA of course and DC... Not positive there though...
Wrong last i heard --
"An applicant must be able to
demonstrate, at a minimum, the degree of proficiency that is required to
effectively operate a handgun of .32 caliber or above."

To add, from personal experience of family...

My step brother's wife recently got a concealed carry permit. She was informed by her husband (my step brother, the cop in Denison), and by her instructor, that she had to carry .32 or larger, and had to qualify with a .32 or larger. She was very disappointed because she intended to carry a .22 (why? I never got a good answer, but it seems she's just afraid of recoil).

I found out about this because she contacted me to recommend a gun to her to test drive.

That's correct. You CANNOT use a .22lr in Texas. Also, there are separate qualifications for revolvers and semi-autos. You can qualify with a semi-automatic and carry both SA or a revolver, but you cannot qualify with a revolver and carry an SA. It is the same test, obviously, but what you use determines what you carry.

In MIssouri you have to qualify with both revolver and semi-auto. And Illinois is the other state which has no CCW least not yet. They HAVE to present a law regarding CCW this order of the Supreme Court.

New york, oregon, Hawaii, and new Jersey are other states youd have difficulty getting carry permit. Oregon doesnt recognize other states permits, and will only issue non resident permits to individuals who are a resident of a state that shares a border with Oregon, plus the standard legal requirements.
