    See if you can open carry it. I believe it is legal to openly carry rifles in Texas. We need more rifleman walking our streets with evil black rifles to help normalize the idea for everyone. The goal is to get everybody walking down the street armed to the teeth. Imagine just walking your dog and seeing your neighbors get out of their car with their AK pattern rifles and some droplet holsters. MAybe their teenage son has a Mossberg? It would be beautiful.

    Texas has laws against concealing handguns.

    Of course you can. Open or concealed, as you prefer. Walk right past a valid 30.06 sign too if you want.

    You can concealed carry it, but it is not your CHL firearm, since CHL requires a handgun.

    I was doing this with my SBR to see how concealable it was. Under a light jacket it disappears.

    And it is legal in my state even though i have no intension's of carrying it.

    See #10

    http://www.texasgunlaws.org/chl.htm

    (10) "Short-barrel firearm" means a rifle with a barrel length of less than 16 inches or a shotgun with a barrel length of less than 18 inches, or any weapon made from a shotgun or rifle if, as altered, it has an overall length of less than 26 inches.

    Yes, that is the definition of an SBR.

    Nowhere will you find it is illegal to carry one. Contrary to popular belief, Texas allows you to carry, open or concealed, loaded or unloaded, any firearm except a handgun. For a handgun you must meet some conditions or have a CHL.

    I see you've got this under control.

    It is more fun this way, (and possibly educational):
    Don't tell him he won't find it. Ask him where it is. Let him look for it a while.

    I've been researching the crap out of this. For one, there is flawed thinking here if anyone thinks that CHL-16 applies to rifles or long guns. It is a concealed handgun law so it would not apply to long guns/rifles. There may be other laws that cover them, but CHL-16 does not. Now, I'm with these other guys in that I believe there is no state law that prohibits the open carry of long guns/rifles, but one should probably check their own city ordinances to see if there are any restrictions. Just because a state law doesn't specifically prohibit something, doesn't mean the local municipalities will allow it.

    Texas has pre-emption so cities cannot do squat.

    That would be about it. That and carrying any type of firearm into an establishment that serves alcohol.

    Doesn't matter if they serve alcohol. What would matter is if they derive 51% or more of their income from the sale of alcohol, and then it would have to be conspicuously posted. Additionally, if it's not posted 51% or 30.06, then the other sign that reads something along the lines of: "the unlicensed possession of..." and there again, if you have a CHL, that sign doesn't mean you.

    That would still be unpractical being given drama you would still have to take time to insert that 30rd mag into it. Unless you're going to carry it with those 13rd mag. But at that point you might as well just carry a G21.
