Recently, I was involved with a traffic stop. The officer took my license and ran it and came back asking if I was a CHL carrier and if I had any weapons. Of course I told him yes and that there was a loaded pistol in the cinsole. He advised that I should have told him initially that I was armed as a CHL carrier. I reminded him that in Texas, it is not required for a driver to have a CHL when transporting a loaded pistol per the castle doctrine. No ticket in this instance, just friendly advise from the Police. Any thoughts, suggestions or comments on this situation?
