    30.06 signs eh. SO, I guess a concealed 30.06 is out of the question. "I'm sorry officer, does this rifle in my pants leg make my arse look fat?"
    Some things make you thankful for where you live.

    Most of the signs I see in Tx are concerned with open carry.

    You can order a book from www.gunlawguide.com that summarizes the gun laws in all 50 states advisories for traveling in Mexico and Canada. The book is updated each year.

    I have carried my gun many times to Texas and have been stopped by the THP and DPD for speeding and have never had a problem. I always give them my OK SDA license with my drivers license. They will ask me where my gun is located and to keep my hands away from it of course but I have never had a problem.
    If you travel and do not have a OK SDA license, it is a must if you plan on taking or carrying your firearm into other states.

    In addition to the 30.06 and 30.07 and the 51%, there is another sign which just identifies a business as serving alcohol - but does not surpass the 51% rule. In those businesses you CAN carry with a permit (but NOT without). If it is an over 51%, you cannot carry period, permitted or no.

    The funny thing is, TX doesn't have Constitutional Carry (or permitless carry) of handguns to my knowledge, so the only difference in carrying in public without a permit and carrying in an establishment that serves liquor without a permit is that the offense becomes a felony, not a normal "unlicensed carry" misdemeanor.
