    A post in another subforum here indicated that it is illegal in Texas to carry with a round chambered. Is this something new, or long established? Can anyone point to a reference for this - prefereably in the DPS document on Handgun laws.

    Thanks,

    Arbee

    This is not true. Don't know how this information got out there but it has been put on several forums.

    Some troll moron posted it, most likely. Interesting to see the post that started it.

    Right. I was doubtful and read through the entire DPS downloaded doc last night and could find nothing.

    I've always felt that not carrying a round in the chamber defeats carrying at all.

    Agreed! I've never run into this particular bit of mis-information before, but it doesn't surprise me.

    Can you post a link to the post where this is mentioned? I'd like to read it.

    And as everyone else said, it's completely false. You can either carry a firearm or you can't.
