    Texas

    It値l be my fist time flying with a gun and I found excellent posts here on the rules for checking a bag with a gun and ammunition.

    I値l be working in Texas, and doing a lot of driving out in sparsely populated regions. Are there any particulars of Texas law that I should know? Such as a problem with printing etc. I have a TN permit and that is recognized in Texas. In TN printing is not a problem because concealment is not required.

    Just look for "30.06" signs on the entrances and "51%" signs on restaurants. It is forbidden to enter there CCW. Also don't go to any schools or school sporting events or hospitals. You can see these signs at Texas3006.com - Your 30.06 Information Resource - Home and there is more info at texasonline.com and texaschlforum.com.

    Accidental printing can only cause you grief if someone sees it and calls the Police. Then depending on the LEO you get it may be a simple "please be careful" to more. I have not heard of it happening here much though, you know how sheep are.

    Keep it covered and you'll be OK. Check out Texas3006.com - Your 30.06 Information Resource - Home so you will have a better idea of places not to go. This is not 100% complete but it has helped me plan ahead a couple of times.

    No bars, not meaning a Chili's type bar but an actual bar, that have a 51% sign which means they make 51% or more of their income from alcohol sales. look out for proper 30.06 signs, even improper ones tell you their views and I would recommend moving along to the next establishment.

    We allow hi-cap mags here, so no worries there.

    Also, welcome to Texas!

    To the above, I would add that carry is not allowed at professional sporting events, baseball, basketball, etc. and not just at "school" sporting events.

    Another sign that you will see in TX is a sign that begins: "The unlicensed possession of a firearm is illegal . . ." or somethign to that effect. You will see this sign at grocery stores, mini-mart type stores and so forth. This is NOT the sign that you have to worry about, because you are licensed. Just learn to recognize the 30.06 sign as others have suggested.

    The attitude toward firearms here is one of normal comfort, you should be fine.

    I have an additional question about Texas. I'm going backpacking in the Texan backcountry area near San Antonio. Technically, it's a "state natural area." Is this considered a "state park" for concealed carry ban purposes?

    HK P2000SK 9mm LEM

    Any questions?

    You also have to notify LEO if stopped. You have to let them know that you have a concealed handgun license and present it with your driver's license.

    Thanks to all. I went out and bought a case to check the gun and ammo.

    If not for this site, I would continue to leave it at home.

    Had to go to 2 wall marts and 1 gun shop before I found 45 acp at the second gun shop.

    I said, to the lady behind the counter, no recession in this business!?

    She said we can't get stock! Can't get Bersa, can't get Kaltec. Ammo is hard to get, All out of 380 and can't get any. Can't make a profit on out of stock items. Strange economy! Even the businesses where sales are up, are suffering.

    Texas law requires you to display with the intent to cause alarm...

    PC 542.01. DISORDERLY CONDUCT : "(8) displays a firearm or other deadly weapon in a public place in a manner calculated to alarm;"
    ...so accidental display is not an issue here. It may cause some commotion, but you most likely will not be arrested for it.

    And there is a letter dated 8 July 1998 that state there is nothing that prohibits the concealed carry of a weapon in a state park. PM me if you want a copy, or if you need any more info about San Antonio. If the area you are talking about is Government Canyon, I live less than five miles away from there.

    Oh, and bring ammo! You can't find much of it around here either! And if you have any extra .380 around, bring it as well, I could use it!

    Cheers! M2

    Also don't go to any schools or school sporting events or hospitals
    Incorrect,
    You are legally able to carry inside HOSPITALS unless they are posted with a 30.06 sign at the entrance.

    PC ァ46.035. UNLAWFUL CARRYING OF HANDGUN BY LICENSE
    HOLDER.
    (b) A license holder commits an offense if the license holder intentionally,
    knowingly, or recklessly carries a handgun under the authority
    of Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code, regardless of
    whether the handgun is concealed, on or about the license holder's
    person:
    (4) on the premises of a hospital licensed under Chapter 241,
    Health and Safety Code, or on the premises of a nursing home licensed
    under Chapter 242, Health and Safety Code, unless the license holder has written authorization of the hospital or nursing home
    administration, as appropriate;

    (i) Subsections (b)(4), (b)(5), (b)(6), and (c) do not apply if the actor
    was not given effective notice under Section 30.06.

    Looks like everyone gave you the right advice - not much more I can add.

    Enjoy your stay here in Texas!

    Why argue with the 9mm vs. .45 issue? Carry the best of both worlds with some 40 cal !

    So how's someone not from Texas suppose to know what 30.06 or 51% sign on a door mean? That's kind of propriatary to the state and not uniform to the rest of the country. Why don't they just put a handgun with a slash as a sign?
