And it bothers me. A lot.
I'm not talking about items with a flag printed ON them, like this. Something like this, I have no problem with - I even own something similar.
IF you just want to carry in your vehicle, I wouldn't get a CHL.True. In Texas, you don't need a CHL to carry a gun in your vehicle. Texas sees your vehicle as an extension of your home, and has adapted the law to make it legal to carry in your car (several years ago, now).
By getting a CHL you know let the police and other agency know information about you.
Uhm....if you have nothing to hide, then it doesn't really matter. If you do have something to hide, then you are likely not eligible for a CHL anyway.Dimwit:
By carrying only in your car, you leave yourself defenseless if TSHTF while you're outside of your car, say leaving a store on your way to your car.
It seems since you can now carry in your car, at work, etc, Really no need to get CHL for the most part. I had a CHL for year, I only kept a gun in my cars, I never carried one on me when just walking in and out of stores. Now that you can legally carry a firearm in your car, I really don't see much of need for a CHL anymore.Me:
If you have no intention of carrying daily, everywhere that you can legally carry, then you're right, there's no need for you to have a CHL.
But a gun left in your car will do you no good if you stop at a gas station, go inside to get a snack, and find that as you approach the checkout some thug has decided to rob the store at gunpoint.
To each his own, but I respectfully disagree with your stance.

|Baby girl, fishing, take two. Nibbles, but no actual "fish on."|
|He actually got in my backpack and helped himself!|
|Me. I actually look like I might know what I'm doing!|
Hadn't ridden a horse in probably 25 years before this.

What a great relaxing week it has been so far! We arrived in Colorado last Tuesday, and have spent the week fishing, shooting, hiking, and just enjoying the fresh air outdoors.
We're headed back home to Texas tomorrow, which makes me a little sad. I didn't realize how much I missed Colorado until we got back here.
I have much to report, though! Hopefully I can spend part of or long drive home writing some posts! :)
Wow. I've let two full weeks go by again since posting any kind of update. Yet it seems like just yesterday.
I've been so busy, but I really just kind of want to stop time for a little bit.
My baby girl graduated from high school yesterday. It's so bitter sweet. She is my only child, and I'm SO proud of her, but in just a short three weeks, she will be shipping off to basic training, and will be gone for almost nine months.
The graduation ceremony was wonderful, the party afterward was precious time spent with family and friends.
I am feeling very blessed. <3 But also a little sad.
I have some gun related stuff to report too, so look for that soon!
