  • Firearm question for Texas

    I am a full time officer in oklahoma and I have a friend that is moving to Texas. I was wondering if Texas somewhat reconizes out of state police officers for concealed carry? I know in oklahoma we do but not sure on Texas.

    Federal law permits qualified law enforcement officers to carry concealed nationwide.

    So yes, you can carry concealed in Texas.

      I don't believe the nonapplicability section of our weapons chapter applies to out of state peace officers, however LEOSA is a federal law that exempts qualified active and retired peace officers from state and local prohibitions against carrying of concealed firearms:

            Want somewhere that doesn't recognize it? All that tribal land in OK... I know its not "technically" OK, but the Feds should've included it.

Be as true to a trust reposed as the needle to the pole. Stand by the right even to the sacrifice of life itself, and learn that death is preferable to dishonor. ~ Gov. Richard Coke, October 4, 1876
