This is the best place to learn and is much easier than reading a book of rules and laws. :tiphat:

:iagree: I've learned some of the most reliable information here regarding Texas Laws and real life application.

In each of my classes, I show a slide of the actual wording of the law, then explain what it means in real life. I always say "only a lawyer, or a politician, or both could write things that sound like this."

God and the soldier we adore,
In times of danger, not before.
The danger gone, the trouble righted,
God's forgotten, the soldier slighted.

I did have a question. Now that open vary is legal, what are the provisionsame for carrying in your car? Does the gun have to be in a holster? Can I keep it on my dash board?

The word that you are looking for is "Layman" meaning someone who is not an expert.

Not someone who cannot walk.

HEIL


Thank you for that correction...

To be carried openly it has to be holstered in a belt holster or a shoulder holster. If it's carried otherwise, it needs to be concealed. It can be under a sweater on the dash but it can't be visible. The law does not make a distinction regarding licensed vehicle carry. MPA vehicle carry requires it be concealed regardless of how it is carries. As always, IANAL.

These two links are to the DPS' website, where you went in order to submit your application and upload your supporting documents...

This one is to the FAQ page; click on"Laws that relate to carrying a handgun", & it will jump to that section of the FAQs.
http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/RSD/CHL/faqs/index.htm

And this one takes you to the "New Laws" section, where in layman's terms they explain what each of the newly (at the time it was posted, following each legislative session) laws mean. As the Legislature convenes every odd-numbered year, this is a good place to bookmark & understand any changes/updates (next should be Sept 2017).
