I'm in a similar situation as a HS teacher with a 27 mile drive each way. I don't have any rough neighborhoods to go through, just rural roads. I keep a get home bag in my trunk. No firearms but several survival/hunting items.

I have not heard of a drug sniffing dog that will also detect to ammo. Those dogs are trained to specific smells. If you want to put a gun in the car you could vacuum seal it and the mags. When they bring the drug dogs through my school they don't take them through the teachers' parking lot.

I live in two cities, one being a small country city and one being a medium urban city. There are a lot of teachers who keep their guns in their cars especially around hunting season (one in the urban city even has a rifle rack in his truck) . In the country city even some of the students keep their rifles in the cars/trucks. I am not saying do it but we have dogs in both towns and they find drugs not weapons and do not search teachers cars.

I would still park off campus and get a good strong lockbox for your car. I don't like being unarmed on the days that I can't carry because I have to go on a military installation. Being there is not the problem, but the rest of the day is. I take my personal security seriously and no one at that school will give a crap if you are mugged somewhere else.

Perhaps in theory they could but being police dogs they'd smell the ammo carried by their police handlers continuously an would never find anything.

I was once told by a police officer that even if his dog smelled marijuana on me, he would not 'alert' unless he was told to work.

I black powder shoot / reenact there is at least a 1/2 lbs of loose power in the carpets of my car. Any explosive sniffing dog would loose his mind smelling my car :-)

Also if my car catches fire it's going to go Hollywood! :-)

The walking stick is the best idea. A friend of mine who has no training other than downing beer beat a plain clothes ALE agent badly with a walking stick. It was a case of mistaken identity. The ALE agent just tried to tackle him when he walked out of a grocery store with out warning. The encounter ended badly for the ALE agent. He also sued the state of NC and won the maximum amount allowed by law.

Good news; finally found the straight answer from the Texas CHL website.

Quote:
Q: Can a license holder have a handgun in their vehicle in a school parking lot?

A: A license holder is not prohibited from having a handgun in his or her vehicle in a school parking lot if the parking lot is not posted with the 30.06 signage described above.
(School employees should know and comply with their employer’s policy on this point.)
It is, however, a criminal offense for any person who is on school property to exhibit, use, or threaten to exhibit or use a firearm.
See Texas Education Code § 37.125(a).
There are no 30.06 signs in any school parking lots in the district. Therefore: Lockbox under the seat, say nothing to anyone, and I should be in the clear whether it's detected or not -- and from what I've read here, it doesn't sound like that's likely anyway.

I'll be carrying the stick anyway. Thanks to everyone!
