    First Post......Non CCW Travel

    Greeting all from Northwest Arkansas!

    I am still waiting on the my CCW permit to arrive. I am going on a road trip this weekend with the wife and kids going from Arkansas to my folks place in Texas. I am not sure of the "travel" laws for Oklahoma and Texas for a non-CCW holder. Any thoughts???????

    Well, if you're on a peacable journey outside the realm of you neighborhood, it could qualify you. However, handgunlaw.com may have the answer you're looking for. It's pushing your luck to go without the permit......I'm from Fort Smith, AR

    The new Texas law does not make any distinctions between residents and non residents of the state. So as long as the handgun is concealed, you can carry it loaded in your car while your on your trip.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    In Texas, you're good to go, so long as it is concealed inside your vehicle.

    For oklahoma:

    21-1289.7. Firearms in vehicles.

    FIREARMS IN VEHICLES

    Any person, except a convicted felon, may transport in a motor vehicle a rifle, shotgun or pistol, open and unloaded, at any time. For purposes of this section "open" means the firearm is transported in plain view, in a case designed for carrying firearms, which case is wholly or partially visible, in a gun rack mounted in the vehicle, in an exterior locked compartment or a trunk of a vehicle.
