I carry my Bersa 380 in my tankbag when "travelling". I feel a little safer knowing I can help someone in trouble out. Sadly, if they come after me they will probably get my bike and my gun. Life is too short as it is.

is it legal to carry in a car or what? where I'm from its illegal to carry concealed in a car unless the firearm is locked somewhere unloaded further than arm's reach away from the driver, but you can carry a loaded gun as long as its plain sight (dashboard, back window of a truck, etc).

but I've heard in TX there is no legal way to carry in a vehicle unless you have concealed carry? surely that can't be right.

and whatever the legal way to carry in a vehicle, wouldn't that apply to a bike too?

"Replacement for the “Traveling” Law Passed in 2005~HB 1815 by Rep. Carl Isett (R-Lubbock)/Senator Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa (D-McAllen).

Now called the Motorists Protection Act.

For years, Texas law provided for a defense to prosecution against a charge of carrying a concealed handgun without a permit if the person was “traveling.” However, “traveling” was never defined in law. In 2005, the Texas Legislature passed a bill establishing that a person is presumed to be traveling if he or she is in a private motor vehicle, is not engaged in criminal activity, is not prohibited by law from possessing a firearm, and is not a member of a criminal street gang.

The clear intent was to protect law-abiding citizens’ right to carry a handgun concealed for personal protection in their cars or trucks without needing a Concealed Handgun License (CHL). However, some District Attorneys in Texas have thumbed their nose at the intent of the law and have gone so far as to issue public statements that they will arrest anyone found within their jurisdiction to be carrying a handgun in his or her vehicle without a CHL.

Further changes are necessary to address this problem. HB 1815 includes the same safeguards and requirements passed by the 79th Legislature; however it will no longer be an offense for Texans to have a handgun in their vehicle or a vehicle under their control. Passed (5/26/07) Signed by Governor Perry (6/16/07) Effective date 9/1/07"

Unlicensed persons are allowed to carry a gun with you in your vehicle as long as the weapon remains concealed. Unfortunatly, I can see the police and DA's working their way around this if you are anything that is considered to be against the law....something as simple as speeding. Check out the links for more info regarding this... HB1815 went into effect Sept.1, 2007 It's now called the Motorists Protection Act.

http://www.hro.house.state.tx.us/hro...80r/hb1815.pdf
http://www.legis.state.tx.us/Home.aspx

Simple way to not have to worry about it is to get your CHL. :/:
