Default FTA Requiring Perfect DL to Purchase Guns??

FYI:

I just bought a new handgun at Academy this morning and when I handed over my drivers licence before the sale the guys says "Oh NO" I sometimes use it to open my doors with it and its rough on the edges. He said he was ok with it but the other guy said no and he called the manager to make the decision. The manager said it was ok and I got my gun... Just a heads up. If I had to get a new driver's licence with their new rules about appointments and get birth certificate it would have been a pain in the you know where. I asked him if it was Academy thing and he said no it was a memo sent to them two days ago.

So, if you want to purchase a gun for Black Friday I hope your DL is good to go.

Not sure I understand. Your DL was rough around the edges, and they received a memo (from whom?) so one clerk would not accept it? That’s crazy! I assume you don’t have CHL.

What is FTA?

Counterfeit IDs are often roughed up to mask imperfections.

Sorry the ATF .... apparently they sent the memo to everybody according to Academy two days ago. Yes, my drivers licence is rough around the edges but not to bad. The clerk was pretty upset with the new rules. He said they had denied two customers already.

No CHL

Thanks for the heads up.

Mine DL is pristine, oh yeah that's right. It's not a Texas DL anymore

Waiting on my 90 days so I can buy my resident hunting license.

I've been at the gun counter on Black Friday before and seen what they get to deal with but I still don't think they care if they sell any guns at Academy.

I am here to admit it. I read this post and yet I still sat through the long line at the gun counter today just to be told that the crack in my license disqualifies me for purchasing a shotgun for my daughter. I guess if you read it on TBH it must be true.

This sounds 100% like an Academy rule and not an ATF rule

Yíall did see Artosí comment above? I am fairly sure he has a FFL and I would have thought he would have been notified of this requirement stated above.

I wouldn't use my DL or any current card but I keep an old card of some sort on me at work. Opened many a door without tearing it up. Get old folks down and need to get in the house with minimal damage. As long as the deadbolt is unlocked we're good!lol

I saw this response coming. I knew everyone with a CHL would be ready with an "I told you so."

They must have implemented that rule because academy gun counter persons rarely seem smart enough to tell a fake DL from a real one.

Dps prints clues in them other than holograms. Some require math

Thanks to ya'll when I walked into DPS for a new license I knew what I was up against. Fifteen minutes and I was out the door. Texas is making it harder to fake a license. Just looked at the new one and it has multiple identifiers...

I'm close to 30 years and this is the 1st one I've ever messed up. Not sure how it got cracked as it happened while it was in my wallet. I guess my butt is getting too fat.

Turn your DL over and look at the back under a black light. They hollowgrammed your picture on the back and only can be seen need a black light.
