    If you have a Concealed Handgun License how many guns can you carry.

    I only carry one gun but I was going to the gun store last week to check out some pistol grips for my 357 and I put my 357 in my pocket which means I was carrying 2 guns at that time. Is this legal.

    Thanks

    What does the concealed carry law in your state say? That would be my first step.

    No problem in TX. You can carry as many as you want as long as you keep them concealed.

    If you have a Concealed Handgun License how many guns can you carry.

    No problem in ID as long as they are concealed and this includes "dangerous" knives. However, anyone can have an unloaded or disassembled weapon in plain view inside their vehicle. WOW - I though TX had liberal gun laws...

    The only rule in Texas is you have to carry the action type on your license. If you qualify with a revolver, you can only carry a revolver. If you qualify with a pistol you can carry a pistol or a revolver.

    Wife was told only one when she took ccw course in VA, and that seems to follow from the language of the stature (you can carry "a" gun)-- but a look at the definitions in the beginning of that part of the code will indicate that you are not limited to one. The definitions say singular means plural and plural means singular, unless otherwise stated. In my experience, that is not an unusual code provision in general, and that may be the case with other states' ccw statutes, also.

    Carrying two concealed guns in Texas is okay in general if you have a CHL. The only caveat is whether you're licensed to carry revolvers only or licensed for both revolvers and autoloads (depends what you used when you qualified on the test).

    I find it easier to carry a BUG rather than extra mags for my main carry.

    In KY, you can carry as many as you want. And since open carry is legal here (in KY) you don't even have to try to conceal them, BUT CHECK LOCAL LAWS.
