Greeting from a Hoosier that is TX bound.

I'm about to come to the Austin area for work, from Indiana. Kind of looking forward to it, but being an almost lifelong Hoosier, I'm a little nervous about a new states laws. In IN, we pretty much only have to make sure that where we are carrying isn't school/daycare property. No guns signs mean nothing here & we can carry into bars (we could actually get falling down drunk while packin' if we wanted, not illegal & has never been a problem here). Will need to find some good gun shops at some point, with good selection & prices. I've been really spoiled here! My LGS usually has new Glocks for $460 & used for $400 frequently (as an example).
Going to try to keep my IN residency, at least for a while, as I still have a home there, but will see about a TX ID incase I find a good deal on a pistol. Looking forward to warmer weather & less snow!

Welcome to Texas from Frisco. Where at in Indiana? I sent some time in Bloomington.

Welcome! As for the various laws and differences, I suggest consulting the CHL-16, which is sort of the "Bible" of our laws and rules. http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/internetforms/forms/chl-16.pdf Hope it helps.
Excellent post/link but I believe their are some changes that have taken place that are not covered in the 2011-2012 CHL-16 link that has been provided. Some listings include the classification of "switchblade" knives and a few others.

Ugh. You're right. The main points are pretty much unchanged, but you are correct- the updated version is not out yet.
