    Open Carry in Texas?

    Anyone know if Texas might allow open carry in the future? I have heard that the NRA or other groups are pushing for it. Anyone know anything?

    Don't know anything about internal Texas politics, but I do know I wish they'd go open carry. I conceal carry almost all my time in NV, AZ, and UT and don't have to worry about being made. Texas is one of those states I'm occasionally in where I have to be extra careful because concealed means invisible--annoying.

    Some states require that your firearm be "concealed" at all times. If your firearm is spotted, even by accident, you could be charged with a crime. This could lead to you losing your CC license.

    Check out the various state pages in the "Resources" area for more information.
