Packing Heat with this RAM Mount

I was looking through the RAM mount catalog and found this gem. Wonder if covering this with a rag or small pouch satisfies the Concealed Carry requirement for a CHL holder to carry while riding a bike.

With all the cameras that have been lost I don't know that I'd want a handgun mounted on a street bike.

If you had a naked bike or even a motard you could actually just point and shoot with the handle bars

Printing is not illegal. It is merely discouraged.

Its more of a grey area actually.


1) According to the actual legal definition:
Texas Government Code - Section 411.171. Definitions
(3) "Concealed Handgun" means a handgun, the presence of which is not openly discernible to the ordinary observation of a reasonable person.

Note "openly discernible " "ordinary observation of a reasonable person" rather than "someone who knows you are a CHL and looking for a bump in your shirt"

2) According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, “‘Concealed’ means that the weapon cannot be visible, and that its presence cannot be discernible through ordinary observation. It is a criminal offense for a license holder to carry a handgun in plain view, or to intentionally fail to conceal the weapon.”

Here's a handy paragraph I keep as my guideline, but it isn't "Legal Advice":
A concealed handgun license holder who displays his or her handgun or otherwise intentionally reveals (or, "Exhibits?" or "unintentionally/accidently fails to conceal?" ... I don't know, I'm no Lawyer)
that he or she is carrying a concealed handgun is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor (TX PC § 46.035[a]).
If the weapon is displayed in a manner intended to cause alarm, the license holder is also guilty of a Class B misdemeanor (TX PC §42.01[a][8]),
unless the incident takes place on school property, in which case the license holder is guilty of a third degree felony (TX EDC §37.125[a]),
which could be enhanced to a second degree felony, PENAL CODE § 46.11.

I believe the law is intended to guard against people brandishing their weapon or purposely "disclose" of the fact that they are carrying - in a threatening manner. That's illegal.

Printing, if it is too darn obvious, might be taken by other observers as a threatening gesture on the part of the carrying person. You know, kinda like somebody pulling oopn his jacket/vest to reveal part of his holster.

I would not want to carry it on top of the handlebar, like in the above picture I posted. That's too much advertising, even if it is covered up. I was thinking placing it in a more concealed place on the bike that will not be so prominent.

Just curious, why not just on your hip or ankle?

I'm not sure I would want my firearm to be attached to the bike, much rather have it attached to me.
