    No.

    And welcome to Washington!

    You cannot carry a loaded handgun in a vehicle though without a valid CPL.

    No, just unload it and put it in a rug. Or wear it on your hip unloaded. Revolver is probably easiest for load/unload in the car. Racking and clearing an autoloader is not always easy to do in discreet fashion.

    I'm not familiar with that school as I am 56 and haven't been back to Texas since 72 when I came back from Vietnam.My Dad who is 80 has been back recently.He grew up there in the 30's and 40's.He said it has changed a little.

    You really arent missing much. I was raised alot of my life in/around Houston. I love Texas but Houston has become real $#!% over the past 10 to20 years.
