Just curious, I have heard mixed things regarding the legality of carrying in your car in Texas without a CHL. Could someone clue me in?

[btw I don't carry in my car now and do plan do get a CHL]

Was finally made clearly legal in 2007. Prior to that, the issue was clouded in definitions of 'traveling' (during which car carry was legal) and how different jurisdictions defined 'traveling'.

I did a more in-depth discussion of this law here:

It is a brief read that goes over the 2007 law authorizing you to keep a concealed handgun in a motor vehicle without a CHL, as well as the older travelling law.
