    If you have a valid CHL and go to buy a handgun, does the dealer still need to send in the background check paperwork, or does the CHL cover that? I remember hearing someone mention that the CHL covered it, but I figured I should ask.

    you still have to do the insta check. The only time the CHL helped you was the old waiting period avoidance.

    Yep, when I was in my local gun store the other day some poor sap was delayed... then he pulled out his CHL and asked if that trumps the background check:bluelaugh: So if you want to avoid the background check, buy from a private party:)

    Thanks for the help. I'm not trying to avoid the background check (the gov't has my info from plenty of my other activities), I was just wondering if I could skip a few minutes of paperwork.
