While most Texans spout how gun friendly their state is, I have found it not so friendly.
The first issue is how difficult it is to get a resident permit. If you happen to have an outstanding parking ticket or are a month behind on child support, you can forget it. If you do have a squeaky clean record, it will cost you a minimum of $200 for the required training and another $100+ to apply for the permit. Once you have the permit, the list of prohibited places makes it almost worthless.
Disclaimer: I grew up in Idaho and have lived in Utah for 30+ years, so those are my frame of reference.
