I have family in Texas and am thinking of going down for a visit for a couple of weeks. I have my CCW in Maine, but they do not reciprocate with Texas. I'm having a hard time finding info on the procedure for a non-resident permit in Texas. Is anyone here familiar enough with it to give me a brief run down? Also, I saw a suggestion on another forum that claimed if it the Texas procedure was too difficult, one could apply to a state that does reciprocate with Texas, then I'd be covered. Realistically, I'd like to be covered through all the states for my entire drive down there. How ridiculous it would be to have to stop at the border and keep getting my gun in & out of my trunk.
