    I'll be doing my first renewal this year. I thought about getting mine for years just to feel ok about having a gun in my car for nooner range trips but put it off until a lady I work with told me she was carrying without a license. I signed up for the course and took the phone number to her and asked her to go with me which she did. I never felt the need to carry until I took the course and heard what the policeman and others had to say. I carry anytime its legal and allowed now.

    I just went online and did the renewal. $70 and now I am waiting for my packet to get here. My current license does not expire for another 6 months, but I don't want any "lapse" in my current CHL.

    1998.

    I also dislike the renewal class, but the instructor I go to tries his best to make it painless for the renewal classes.
