    I am inexperienced in concealed carrying and if I were to carry a firearm, what sort of establishments and places should I not bring it into? I am unaware of the laws regarding this but I live in Texas.

    Not sure about Texas..In nearby NM, the one's I'm familiar with are:
    Federal buildings, like a Post Office, Court House, etc..
    Schools & University Grounds.
    Establishments that sell liquor by the drink....
    I've heard that some establishments might post a sign that CC is prohibited in their business...To be honest, I've never seen one....
    I'm sure there are others, maybe another poster can name some more...

    In Texas in short and without details:

    No schools
    No Courts
    No polling places while elections are going on
    No place making more than 51% of it's profit from alcohol sales, they must post a 51% sign
    No sporting events
    Any place with the 30.06 posting
    Hospitals and Nursing homes are off limits if posted with a 51% sign without the 51% and/or the 30.06 posting if my memory is correct.

    Feel free to add or delete from my list it was quickly done. FWIW if/when you took/take your CHL class they will cover this. If you don't plan on getting a CHL then well it wouldn't really matter if you did or didn't follow the laws as you could get popped with UCW anywhere, not chastising you for not getting or having a CHL at all. To each his own and I can certainly understand not wanting to get one or feeling like you should have to.

    You should have got a paper or something that told you where and not you can carry when you got your cwp. Also at the class you take, you should have been informed.

    Gun Looney,Just where do you carry at your colony'?:eek:

    Having just completed the CHL class on Saturday, (two days ago), I can say that the info you seek is indeed given during the class in Texas as Etho pointed out. The listing in his post pretty much tells it all. I recommend taking the CHL class as soon as possible if you are considering carrying.

    You've gotten some well-meant, but innaccurate answers here about Texas CHL laws. You'd be much better off getting on the Texas DPS website, and downloading form LS-16 yourself.

    You must know your state law and avoid those places so listed. A wise person will also avoid any implication that they are out looking for a fight. Avoid known trouble spots or any location or situation a resonable person would know about.

    Avoid the places listed as not legal in your state. Avoid places where a average reasonable person of your community would expect trouble. Avoid places or times where it is just not smart to be there. Avoid obvious trouble spots, such as late night ATM's, etc. A mindset of trouble avoidance is the best.

    In response to the signs banning the carry of a CW if its not mandated by law those establishment do not and will not ever receive my business. To be a private party attempting to limit my constitutional rights is unexceptable. Not to mention not well thought out, who do you want in your store if its being robbed? Someone who can stop them? I sure would. There is always another store willing to not discriminate against you for exercising your rights as an American.

    In TX, you can most anywhere. Except Court, executions, places where a high school or college sporting event is taking place, or places where they get 51% or more of their profits from the sale of alcohol, or a church, or places where betting is taking place like a dog track.

    Is conceal carry really needed? I can see keeping a pistol in the trunk. Just curious.

    if you need it and can't get to it. b/c its in your trunk....then CCW IS needed!

    I have stopped carrying in an ankle holster b/c of a situation that almost developed two weeks ago...

    If you need a gun NOW. and dont have it, how are you going to get said gun and use it to defend yourself?

    Glen, I'm sorry but an armed perp won't give you time to go to your car, he's just gonna shoot you where you stand.

    One reason why we have fanny packs, unless the resort intervenes with it's own rules.
