    My first 2 weeks in Texas, haven't seen a 30.06 sign yet...

    I must admit, Texas (or at least my area) is a lot nicer than I thought it would be. I have met many friendly people who appear to be very genuine in their kindness. The restaurants in Midland are nice. There seems to be plenty of things to keep one busy. My only complaint is that it's not easy finding a job here. But hey, as I understand it, it's not easy anywhere

    At any rate, in my first two weeks (or so) here, I have seen one 51% sign, but no 30.06 signs. However, out here, a lot of places have a sign stating that "Unlicensed possession of a firearm is a felony punishable by..." in English and Spanish everywhere.

    What's the deal with these? They hold no legal weight like a 30.06 sign does, right?

    You have a license so therefore, it is legal for you to carry.

    This is just telling criminals it is a crime to illegally carry a gun.

    Welcome to God's country!

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there are still places that have them. If you are interested in finding out more, check out Texas3006.com - Your 30.06 Information Resource - Home

    welcome to the Lone Star State
    You're around my old stomping grounds, grew up in Odessa.

    I think you won't find many 30.06 signs there except for the hospital and their clinics.

    Welcome to Texas, the jobs will come back around partner. I was just down in Midland in August for a conference. Texas in my view was one of the last few States to actually get hit by the recession, but hit we did get. So it might take us a little while longer to get out of it since it took a while longer to get here.

    Might be down Midland way this August again if they hold the conference there again, I'll give you a holler if they, dinner will be on me as a welcome to Texas dinner LOL.

    Those "unlicensed posession...." signs basically mean that they sell alcohol there. If you look at the fine print on them you will see that they are courtesy of the Alcoholic Beverage Commision.
    The only signs we need to worry about are the 30.06 and the 51%.

    +1 on what you said about the people here!

    Those "unlicensed posession...." signs are just a notification to gun-toting criminals that when they enter that establishment they are now committing a felony instead of just a misdemeanor.
