    State Fair of Texas has no problem with CHL holders carrying. If they do a random search for illegal items, they'll gladly allow you to hang on to your gun while they make sure you don't have anything they don't want in there. Then let you re-holster, cover and go have a corn dog. :D

    They made a big deal of it last year and it even hit the news. :texas:

    Well, I went and carried with no problem...had my HK P2000SK in the Milt Sparks VMII. This was the first time I've been in 15 years so I wanted to make sure. I didn't really have that great of time (everything was way overpriced IMO) but I took a friend's 7 yr old girl and she had a blast so that's all that matters. BTW: women love a single dad. :banger:
