    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'.
