Re: Carry rules for non CHL citizens

I agree with the other posters, get you LTC, even if you don't carry all day, everyday. You can find discounted classes, some gun stores offer free classes with a gun purchase, and the fee to the State is only $40.00 (down from $140.00) Look around at training classes, there are several available. There are several members, here who are instructors. While the motorist protection act, and the castle doctrine, have freed up, a lot of places you can legally carry, the peace of mind with having an LTC, is well worth the effort and expense, and will keep you from possibly facing charges, in the event, that you do have to use your handgun for self defense.

Re: Carry rules for non CHL citizens

First off welcome to the forum!! :tiphat:


You are allowed to carry your gun just as you described while in your vehicle. The only legal way to carry it on your person, outside of your vehicle, is on your property, or property you control, such as a business. While I understand, your reasons for carrying, on your person, while in and around sketchy, people, or circumstances, if you were forced to use it, you would be in violation, of the law.

Get your LTC, then you will be able to carry on your person all the time, with the exception, of prohibited places.

Great first post, and great questions, There are a lot of folks who are unclear on Texas carry laws.
