    My Wife may be converting her Sister

    Many of you know that my Wife has recently started the process for getting her CHL and is excited about it.

    Off and on during her conversion she has been talking to her Sister about it, I think more to comfort her Sister's concerns than to convert her. Well today I was at their house for their 1 year old's BDay party and I was disarmed (locked in the minivan console). My Sister In-Law was going to take my van and some of the kids to a park, so I asked her to step outside so I can talk to her. I told her where my pistol was and that it was locked. I told her I wanted her to be aware of it in case she had to get in there for Kleenex or something, so she wouldn't be freaked out. I explained that it was loaded, but safe as long as she kept her finger off the trigger (S&W Sigma .40).

    All of that is fine and good and she just kept it locked, the cool part is when I explained to her if its presence she then said "It's kind of comforting to know its there."



    I think she is coming around, slowly but still in forward motion.

    what if...

    What if the cops discovered the gun during a traffic stop? Wouldn't she get busted for carry concealed without a permit?

    Why didn't you just take the gun out and put it on if she was taking the van...or put it on and go with them?

    What am I missing?

    I'm pretty sure in Texas you don't need a permit to carry concealed in a vehicle.

    In TX the Castle Doctrine covers concealed carry in the car and your place of business and in between. She was in my car with my permission and is legal to posses a firearm.

    I didn't put it on because it generally freaks her and her Husband out, but she was cool with it in the van, she might be slowly coming around.

    I didn't go because I didn't want to go look at planets and meteors.

    I think the fact that her Sister (my Wife), her Mom and her Dad are all getting their CHL. Her oldest Brother already owns a Sig .45 and has talked about getting his CHL, is what might be making her come around and see that most people who own guns aren't freaks.
