    Hello guys, I have a question on what I need to OC. I'm 19 and I know you have to be 21 to own the handgun. It says I need written consent from the owner to carry whatever firearm I have on me. So, my question is. What kind of written consent do I need to posses? Is there some special paper work or can my dad just write a letter saying I'm allowed to carry the gun?

    Thanks, TyNV

    You do not have to be 21 to own a handgun - you must be 21 to purchase from a FFL.

    The minimum age to OC is 18 years old and doing so does not require written parental permission.

    I've been carrying since I turned 18(my mom bought me the gun). The first post is 100% correct. Word of advice if you plan on carrying. Don't dress like a thug, don't act like a dick, and make sure your friends behave appropriately when you are with them.

    Good thing I don't dress like a thug and I'm respectful. On the other hand, my friends don't always act mature when I'm out with them. guess I'll just have to OC when I'm not with them. Thanks for the advice!

    Thanks, TyNV

    The problem with the friend situation, you may be OCing not out with friends say at the mall(kids still go to the mall?), and you run into a friend(or friends) then you're in the aforementioned situation where you're OCing with less than mature company.

    Is it possible for you to get a CHL(whatever your state calls its concealed carry permit) where you could OC and just incase the situation happens you'd be able to transition to concealed carry?

    You could always also try to help your friends understand the situation and maybe they'd act a little more mature on your behalf, though it would sure scare me to be relying on other people when life and freedom are on the line.
    I'm not able to get a Concealed Carry permit yet, but, I do understand what you're trying to say about running into a friend somewhere. Guess I'd just have to talk with them so they understand the situation.

    Therein lies one of the tenets of OCDO - to educate.

    Time to start hosting public education classes?
    Many in Virginia, Pennsylvania and numerous other states do that daily.

    Maybe that is something we need in TX to inform the sheeple about OC.
    Heck even getting more CHL instructors and Gun Store owners on board with the idea would help tremendously.
    Its the old debate between which came first - the chicken or the egg.

    First OC needs to become legal in Texas.

    First the people need to get solidly behind the effort.

    First you need elected officials that are pro and have a backbone.

    Really don't care which comes first - just needs doing.
    Actually, I believe OC will happen in Texas. It is not a matter of "if" but "when."
