The application of the law is the key. Most Counties are rural and VERY tolerant of guns/weapons. In some of the major metro areas the locals are more strict in their interpretation. Austin does not seem to have an overabundance of common sense when it comes to guns. Houston on the other hand seems to hand out medals for capping goblins.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
