We need to have open carry as an "option" in TX... Not that I think its the best idea, or would do it, but in the summer here concealing is a pain.

FYI I'm pretty sure the law is written "intentional" display... But I'm sure you would not get pulled over and hassled for that as it is in plain sight.

Yeah he could be a cop sure, but I doubt it.

*I meant to say you would get pulled over for that as it is in plain sight.

I agree open carry would be a nice option. Maybe someday...

Your second comment confused me. I'm guessing you meant that becuase it was not an "intentional" display that he would not be hassled.
I got curious and looked up the definition and according to Texas Government Code 411.171;
Concealed handgun means a handgun, the presence of which is not openly discernable to the ordinary observation of a reasonable person.

Further in "Sec. 46.035 Unlawful Carrying of Handgun by License Holder" the law states;
(a) A license holder commits an offense if the license holder carrys a handgun on or about the license holders person under Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code, and intentionally fails to conceal the handgun.

I wonder if he's ever practiced drawing and firing that weapon with gear on? Not that I have, but just made me think it'd be pretty difficult.

I didn't mean to sound like a know it all I just wanted to get the real info out there. It sounds like SBAtdijetta was probably correct but unfortunately the law is a little fuzzy and the rider in the OP could still stand to be hassled by the man.
The proper LEO response, IMHO, would be to let the guy know he was displaying (assuming he is licensed) and let him be on his way.

Mere speculation on my part, but I believe the State of Texas claimed your vehicle has been extended under the castle law? You are allowed to carry a loaded pistol in your vehicle -- even without a CHL. I wonder if that extends to motorcycles?

+1. I'm sure with the mere sight of the pistol display, it might have a few 911 call ins on the rider by concerned motorist.

Intentional or unintentional, if it is seen you go to jail and lose your chl. That's why its called concealed handgun license, not concealed and accidently displayed handgun license. When I took my chl class, Ms. Cheryl told us a story of a guy at hooters had his in his waistband behind his back sitting at the bar. They guy turned the wrong way and another customer saw it and called the lawman. Took him to jail and he lost his chl. They are very strict on it being concealed.

The problem is, who defines "intentional"?
The first person is the LEO. Later the judge may disagree but by then you may have spent the night in the Ironbar Hotel and spent a wheelbarrow of cash to prove yourself.
Unless the cop is having a bad day there is no reason in this or the Hooter's case why an arrest should be made.
Just slap their wrist and turn them loose. The CHL holder has already demonstrated that they are upstanding citizens and therefor, IMHO, they should get a little respect. Not jammed hard for minor infractions.

I agree completely Im a CHL holder and accidents happen. My 45 has flashed a time or two but thank goodness no one saw. The thing is intentional doesnt need a definition by anyone. If it is seen by someone, meaning not concealed, even if they can print the outline of your gun in your pocket this means you have failed to affectively conceal your weapon and you lose your license. Point being unless homeboy in the pic is a cop someone could easily call it in and he gets hauled away, intentional or not.
