Certainly not a Lawyer at this desk!

But I do believe IIRC any legal long gun can be carried openly in a vehicle (remember gun racks in pikkemup trucks? I still see some around)

Also not a lawyer.

There is no Texas law on carrying a rifle or shotgun. So you can carry open or concealed, loaded or unloaded. BUT.......
Expect to be treated differently when pulled over or dealing with the police. I would say that you are more likely to have problems in populated counties like Harris, Bexar, or Dallas than smaller counties like Carson, Coke, or Kent.

Brucesw2,

You may keep the shotgun in your vehicle, and it does not have to be concealed or locked in a gun rack.

Thank you for your question.

The City of San Antonio, Texas has a City Ordinance prohibiting the carrying of a loaded rifle or shotgun in public places.

Other cities may have similar ordinances, just some friendly information.

I don't think the city of San Antonio or any other city in Texas can do that. I was under the  impression that no city in Texas can enforce stricter gun laws than the Texas state laws.
