    Carrying in San Antonio

    I'm flying to San Antonio from out of state to attend a conference at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. I am staying in the Crockett Hotel, and plan to bring my CCW with me. My state has reciprocity with TX.

    Other than the mandatory posting of bars, are there many Criminal Protection Zones in San Antonio, particularly along the Riverwalk? Are the convention center and Rivercenter Mall posted?

    Thank you,
    Kwc

    Federal zones, school zones do not have reciprocity. You are allowed to carry into bars a little quick research with Texas Department of Public Safety is a good idea. Get the information from the horses mouth, not me.

    I believe I have a pretty good understanding of Texas statute. But I do know that businesses/facilities have the option to post 30.06 signs. I could be wrong, but I doubt the Texas Department of Public Safety has a list of posted areas and private businesses in downtown San Antonio.

    Any other thoughts?

    Download the USA Carry app, available on this site. It will give you all the info you need for the area that you are in and/or visiting. Here's the link: Search for "usa carry phone app" - USA Carry

    That just provides a window into the blog posts and discussion forums on this site... no specifics on businesses and facilities.

    Appears there aren't many San Antonio residents on this forum... or if there are, they avoid the Convention Center and the Riverwalk. :)

    I will have the pleasure of discovering places that are off-limits for myself... hopefully there aren't many!

    We were just there in October and didn't see any signs on the Riverwalk while we strolled , but then didn't go into every establishment. Can't help you on Convention center, never went there.

    As a side note, just out of town is the Tejas Steakhouse, worth the trip IMHO. Sorry couldn't help more

    You are correct a business may post the 30-06 sign, it is very specific and must be posted in English and Spanish same font, please refer to the Texas regulation, if ask to leave any posted area you are required to do so immediately, concealed means concealed, also please note only a licensed LEO or magistrate may ask to see license, not security guard or private personnel. But avail yourself of accurate knowledge as noted. When I travel I look up and print the regulations on carry of the individual states in which I intend to carry. Be observant look on any door for posting. Peace, Love, Colt 45.

    This provides a good perspective--thanks!

    I lived in San Antonio early 2000s but did not have a carry license at the time, so posted areas never caught my attention. It's a great city though and I look forward to my upcoming visit.

    In Texas, hotels must indicate their gun policy on their web page.



    Texas Occupations Code: Chapter 2155
    Sec. 2155.103. NOTICE REGARDING FIREARMS POLICY. (a) A hotel shall include on the hotel's Internet reservation website the hotel's policy regarding the possession, storage, and transportation of firearms.
    (b) If a hotel provides a written confirmation or a written statement of terms and conditions to a consumer after accepting the consumer's hotel reservation by telephone, the hotel shall include information specifying how the consumer may review applicable guest policies. The guest policies must indicate the hotel's policy regarding the possession, storage, and transportation of firearms by guests.
