Default Tips/Advice for Houston, TX

Iím taking my family to Houston to visit a friend. I have AZ and FL permits. Iíve read up on 30.06 and 30.07 requirements and also CHL laws. I plan to go to the Childrenís Museum, Downtown Aquarium and Johnson Space Center. I know JSC is a no go. I know about Texas3006.com and Iíve read everything I can on there already. Anyone been to Houston and can give some tips/advice about carrying?

Seems that you've got your bases covered by reading up on Texas laws. Enjoy your visit to Houston. It's a world class city with a thriving cultural scene and tons of good restaurants.

I've got a funny (in a good way) anecdote about one of my visits to Texas. In 2013 I was driving from Boise City OK to Lawton OK. The most direct route was through the Texas panhandle. At the time OC was legal in OK, but not in TX. I had been OCing on my hike in far western OK, and continued to do so on my drive. I stopped to get gas in a small town in north Texas between Boise City and Amarillo. While I was pumping gas a voice behind me said "Excuse me, sir". I turned around to see a sheriff's deputy. He saw the OK plates on my car and politely informed that while OC was legal in OK, it was not yet legal in TX, and would I mind covering up. Very cool.

I've carried their several times over the last few years. Seems like everyone I know there carries (and only about half of them have permits). Sounds like you've done your homework, so enjoy!

And remember: Everyone is not staring at you and no one really cares that you are carry a conceded weapon.

Like baggss said-so many people carry, it's not a big deal. The only places I don't carry concealed are bars where a prominent 51% Sign is visible, federal facilities, and schools. I've carried at the zoo and pretty much every restaurant that isn't a complete bar.

Concealed means concealed. It really is second nature after a few years. No one is out trying to make you, so enjoy the freedom!

ETA: I do believe I carried at the aquarium last year too. Obviously no issues, and I don't believe they have metal detectors.

ANY large sports even WILL have metal detectors and searches, so don't carry there.

Visited my sister in Houston last year, great city except bad traffic and high humidity, concealed carried using my AZ non-resident and never had any issues. Just pay attention to the 30.06 and 30.07 sign and you be good to go. For the people, they don't really care, everyone was carrying.

Side note: Visited a few gun stores and boy, I wish I moved to free state!

You’re on the right track, the Texas3006 app is a pretty reliable resource.

People are examining you for printing much less than you think. After while, it becomes as second nature as a wallet or car keys. That said, concealed means concealed.
