    Default I didn't tell the LEO I had my pistol in the car

    Guess that was pretty stupid but I have just moved to Houston from NY, havenot been pulled over in years and got nabbed 71 in a 55 on a stretch between Houston and Tyler.

    I have my NY CCW (full carry) and if I already had my Texas permit I would have told him as required. So, anyone know how long I have to get my Texas permit? Texas recognizes NY but for how long after you relocate?

    Well. I look at it this way. Are you a NY resident? You just told us you now live in Texas. Is your NY permit a non-resident permit? If not then it is a resident permit and since you now reside somewhere other than NY then it is no longer a valid permit. You need to go get a Texas permit and stop beating around the bush about it. If you were in a situation where you had to use your firearm then you would be carring illegally and therefor would be unjustified in useing a gun.
    But... on a lighter note.
    "WELCOME TO TEXAS" even if you are from NY.
    It is better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

    Well said, Camerondavidl. Just a quick side note, if it matters: He may be found "unjustified" but he will have been found ALIVE to be found unjustified...

    Yeah, tho, I'd agree with the recommendation to go lick some boots & get a Texas permit so as to be found both alive and "legal" after any unfortunate need to defend your life.

    BTW, I get to drive into TX now and then, beautiful. I love the Texas spirit of freedom and hope the best for all of you.

    Quoted above

    I am not a lawyer, however I keep up with Texas laws. I do have a texas license. If you are not prohibited from owning a fire arm you are allowed to carry concealed in your vehicle. If you are stopped for a class c misdemenor you should not have a problem, especialy if the officer does not know you have the gun. Texas honors NY permits. I do not agree with this since NY does not honor Texas permits. That said some Texans do not have Texas permits but have permits from other states. They are honored in Texas. The last session of the legislature was thinking of only honoring Texas residents who had a Texas permit. As far as I know that was not done.

    I am not aware of anyone being prosicuted for carrying a gun who used that gun in self defense. In Texas the prosacutor is not going to prosacute and the jury will not convict.

    You don't have to tell the police that you have a gun in the car in Texas unless they ask you.
    Your best bet is to get a Texas CHL.
    It is a 10 hour class that should cost around $100 and another $140 to file with the State.
    You should have your license in about 60 days.

    Maybe this will help...?

    GC 411.173. NONRESIDENT LICENSE. (a) The department by
    rule shall establish a procedure for a person who meets the eligibility
    requirements of this subchapter other than the residency requirement
    established by Section 411.172(a)(1) to obtain a license under this
    subchapter if the person is a legal resident of a state another state
    or if the person relocates to this state with the intent to establish residency
    in this state. The procedure must include payment of a fee in an
    amount sufficient to recover the average cost to the department of
    obtaining a criminal history record check and investigation on a
    nonresident applicant. A license issued in accordance with the procedure
    established under this subsection:
    (1) remains in effect until the license expires under Section 411.183; and
    (2) may be renewed under Section 411.185.
    (a-1)*[repealed by Act effective September 1, 2005, 79th Leg., R.S., H.B. 225, 4.]
    (b) The governor shall negotiate an agreement with any other state
    that provides for the issuance of a license to carry a concealed
    handgun under which a license issued by the other state is recognized
    in this state or shall issue a proclamation that a license issued by the
    other state is recognized in this state if the attorney general of the
    State of Texas determines that a background check of each applicant
    for a license issued by that state is initiated by state or local authorities
    or an agent of the state or local authorities before the license is issued.
    For purposes of this subsection, "background check" means a search
    of the National Crime Information Center database and the Interstate
    Identification Index maintained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
    (c) The attorney general of the State of Texas shall annually:
    (1) submit a report to the governor, lieutenant governor, and
    speaker of the house of representatives listing the states the attorney
    general has determined qualify for recognition under Subsection (b); and
    (2) review the statutes of states that the attorney general has
    determined do not qualify for recognition under Subsection (b) to
    determine the changes to their statutes that are necessary to qualify
    for recognition under that subsection.
    (d) The attorney general of the State of Texas shall submit the report
    required by Subsection (c)(1) not later than January 1 of each calendar
    year.

    Although we as a country have done everything in our power to create the last several generations as compliant - law abiding - walk calmly into the gas chamber model citizens. THIS IS STILL AMERICA!
    If you don't get caught you are innocent!
    Never volunteer any information when you are pulled over.
    Listen carefully to the questions and then think about weather you are incriminating your self or not.
    If you are , STFU.

    I believe Texas is a have to notify state. You really need to follow the laws of the state you are in. If you don't you are asking for some free room and board (that you might get charged for).
