Is Texas a shal inform when stopped by Leo? I was just reading another post and did not want to hi jack it. Some say show your ccl and some say don't so just wandering if it was mandatory in Texas.
Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.
Must Inform Officer Immediately on Contact By Law?
Sec. 411.205. Requirement to Display License.
If a license holder is carrying a handgun on or about the license holder's person when a magistrate or a peace
officer demands that the license holder display identification, the license holder shall display both the license
holder's driver's license or identification certificate issued by the department and the license holder's handgun
Note: When an Officer ask you for ID you must then give them your Permit/License to Carry, if you are
carrying at that time when you give them your ID. If not you are breaking th
Thanks, I thought that was what they said in class but my memory isn't the best.
Must inform, with the totally irrational ironic twist that non-license holders who carry in their car
are not held to the same standard.
If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.
I have always shown the CCL, when the pistol is in the car.

What non-shooter are YOU planning on taking to the range?
I carry my CHL directly behind my DL so if I ever need to pull it out to show a LEO I am reminded, and hand both together.

Yoda, I am, yes.
Yes, Texas is a shall-inform state. Louisiana is, also. I think its better practice to inform the officer of my CHL no matter if we're required to or not. I believe telling them I have one right when they walk up would make them more comfortable. Anyone disagree?
A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.
"... e law. There is no penalty if you don’t inform them but as a law abiding citizen we must follow the law."
...to the OP...here's my memory secret: http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/interne...rms/chl-16.pdf
Since i have LEOs in my family and have been a truck driver. I seem to have gathered some expertise in dealing with roadside stops. I'd pull over immediately (when safe) I usually would prefer a lit area like going into a gas station. I turn off my car, turn on flashers, turn on inside dome lights, roll window down partially (Never know if it's a phoney) and place hands on wheel in plain sight and wait for officer to approach me. Now that i have a TX CHL YES! the first words out of my mouth would be OFFICER, I have a carry license and i am possession of my weapon.. and wait for his instructions.
