    Car carry in TX? 21 and no CCW and traveling through. Is this permissible?

    Getting read to take a trip through TX and was wondering if a 21 year old with no CCW could legally vehicle carry through OK?

    It's legal for anyone not prohibited from owning a gun, who is not a member of a criminal gang (as defined elsewhere in Texas law), and who is not breaking any laws other than a Class C violation of the Traffic Code, to carry a loaded concealed handgun in a motor vehicle.

    There's no age restriction.

    There's also no requirement that it be concealed if you're "traveling", but that's a fight you probably wouldn't want to fight.

    Doesn't say that, but first hand experience with state troopers outside El Paso learned me that they think it says that somewhere.

    The DPS interpretation of the law isn't right, but who wants to spend hours or days proving them wrong? And while on vacation? Not I

    not that i ever go to el paso, but the law only says concealed in the car, it doesn't say how it has to be concealed. Guess if i'm ever stopped in DFW, i'll find out if they intend to misconstrue the law.
