    Castle Law question

    In TX it states you can carry in your place of business, home & vehicle. My question is what if your main mode of transport is a motorcycle? I have a truck that I drive also but because of gas prices I mainly ride my bike(motorcycle). Is it legal to carry without a permit if it was say in a backpack or something similar. A girl I work with asked me and I told her I didn't know and maybe you guys could answer the ? for me.

    Thanks

    Don't know TX law that well so I'll say what I say in every thread----Contact your State Attorney General.

    In my opinion though, a backpack is part of you and not the bike. So if you conceal it in a backpack you are carrying concealed on your person. I would assume it would have to be in a saddlebag of some sort attached to the bike.

    Re: Castle Law question

    You might want to google the TX Castle Law.

    This is one of the links I found.
    I was surprised in reading it how broad Texas law is!

    Stowed, the firearm should be fine. But on your person is one of those gray areas. I wouldn't chance it. Actually this is not the same as Castle, which allows you to defend yourself anywhere you have a legal right to be, but clarifies the statutes on travelling. Check with DPS and/or the Attorney Generals office. You got me curious, may check into it myself later.

    Re: Castle Law question

    Thanks for the responses guys. I figured some of you would be curious to find out what the answer to this question would be. From the info some of you have found im thinking maybe this fits in with the castle law. But I agree with contacting a state official or police department and getting the exact answer.

    I've read the law I was just curious what you guys considered "inside a motor vehicle" when it came to a motorcycle.
