You might want to keep your permit active in case you happen to travel out of state...



Good point. I don't travel as much as I once did but a road trip is one of the situations where I am sure to be carrying, with a possibility of a breakdown in some remote or unfamiliar area.

I used to go to Indiana and Michigan quite a bit. After I got my permit and started carrying I had to change my route to use Kentucky instead of Illinois for part of the east-west travel leg since Illinois did not recognize out of state permits.

I suppose the State of Texas will still issue permits even though they are no longer required.
