Cool link! Thanks.
This is a discussion on Texas: 'Where Can You Carry' Guide within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Here's a good, quick, cheat sheet for Texas. It also lists the penalty (felony, misdemeanor). TCHA: Civilian Carry...
Cool link! Thanks.

thanks but are 2 questions from my walk tonight...
Is there State Preemption in Texas?
My City (college station) Park near my house has a sigh stating no firearms or air guns and cites a City Code.
Is this enough to Cover 30.06?

The city can't preempt state law. If you're licensed, and it's legal to carry in the park (i.e., no school activities), then you're good to go.My City (college station) Park near my house has a sigh stating no firearms or air guns and cites a City Code.
30.06 doesn't apply here.Is this enough to Cover 30.06?
BTW, IANAL. Make sure to do your own research.
Maybe a call to the CHL office can clear this up.

How did I miss this thread, I was just about to post a 30.06 question and tried the search, guess I am getting better.
I had a question for the Texans on this forum, where are all the 30.06 signs?
I have been actively looking to make sure I know where I can and can't carry and outside of my CHL class I have not seen 1 actual 30.06 sign. I have seen many "it is illegal to carry an unlicensed firearm..." signs, but since I am about a week away form having my CHL in hand I don't have to worry about those.
Now that is cool. I was just thinking about trying to set up something like this, on maybe Google Maps or something.
The only 30.06 signs I have seen have been on hospitals or doctors offices in a hospital owned building.
I guess the easiest way for us in Texas to protect ourselves is to just go back to carrying long guns. How do you think that would go over, if everyone started toting their shotguns around again. After the first week of calls to 911, with man has a gun entering Walmart or the grocery store, mall, ect. the dispatcher would probably just say, are they pointing it at anyone, answer no, well the it is perfectly legal for them to have it.
Anyone want to volunteer to start the movement off.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

I noticed that on the link that bluelineman posted, Taco Bueno will no longer get my $ .89. What is funny is the one about a mile form my house was not listed, so I will have to check it out and see.
