    I've never met a postal inspector and even if one was present I can't imagine why he would want to search my vehicle. I keep a low profile ( no NRA decals etc) and dropping off packages or buying stamps doesn't seem like suspicious activity to me.

    I swear some of you guys are so scary ,I'm surprised you carry a gun at all.

    In addition to learning the difference between state and federal law, you need to learn the difference between understanding what is legal and what you can get away with. Both are important.

    Don't use a gun rack. It will get stolen. That's why you don't see gunracks any more vs. when I was younger.

    Why would someone steal a gunrack if no one uses them anymore??

    As far as I can recollect the State or Texas does not consider any difference between a gun and a loaded gun. In Texas a gun is a gun.

    Gun racks were popular when pickup trucks had a front seat only. Now it is very impractical with a back seat. You would have to stop the truck, get out and crawl in back to get a gun from a rack.

    They make "gun racks" that fit on/over the front seats that hold a rifle/shotgun vertically against the back of the seat. I don't have any links for that, unfortunately.
